How do you set up for a balloon drop?

I am planning a banquet and am trying to figure out how to set up for a balloon drop rather than hiring someone to do it.

Do you run doublesided tape with a drawstring down the end of two plastic sides of a lightweight drop cloth and fill with balloons?

Balloon Drop
by: Margit

The easiest way to do this is to buy a balloon drop kit. They come complete with bag or net, ceiling clips and a release cord.

Amazon for example currently offers a balloon drop bag with 100 latex balloons for US$ 12.

For setting it up, please see my answer to making a balloon drop for a wedding.

Hope that helps. Good luck with the banquet.
