If you are making a balloon arch which starts with large balloons at the bottom and filters out to 5" balloons for the actual arch, as you dont fill the 5" with helium, how does this stay arch shaped?

Air Filled Arch
by: Margit

Hi Shirley,

The only thing I can think of is to give the arch some extra support by tying monafilament line to the top of the arch and secure the other end to a hook in the ceiling. Normally you would use a frame made of aluminium rod or conduit for an air filled arch, as explained in other posts here, for example: https://www.balloon-decoration-guide.com/why-is-my-air-filled-arch-made-with-aluminium-rod-sagging-in-the-middle-comments.html

It would be great if you could submit a photo to help explaining what kind of decoration you are actually thinking of.

Hope that helps,
Margit
