I want to have 100 balloons over the dance floor with the strings hanging down. How do I keep them from floating around?
How to Hang Balloons From Ceiling Over Dance Floor
The best way to keep the balloons from moving around would be to fill the whole ceiling of the room.
The next best solution would be if there was a frame around the ceiling above the dance floor, as shown in the image I uploaded.
Another option would be using glue dots to attach the balloons to the ceiling. According to this balloon ceiling without helium tutorial
, you need roughly two dots per balloon.
You can purchase these double-sided adhesive dots on a roll (100 dots per roll)
or sheets (100 dots per sheet)
Alternatively, consider using the balloons upside down and without strings tied to them, like this:
1. String one long piece of fishing line
across the dance floor, but don’t tape it up to the ceiling yet (it’s easier to tie the balloons on down low!). You can tie it onto two posts, or use the back of chairs.
2. Blow up your balloons with air and attach a 2 feet long piece of fishing line to each of them. Then tie them to the long string of fishing line.
3. Once your long piece has all the balloons you want on it, raise it up to the ceiling. Secure the long piece of fishing line with scotch tape every 2 feet or so and on the ends as well.
The big advantage of both this upside-down method and the glue dots option is that you don't need to fill the balloons with helium, which is difficult to get and expensive.
