How to do a foil balloon arch?

E.g. if you're doing a single arch using 18" round foils how do you keep the foils in position alongside the next balloon without it twisting. I have tried various methods and manage to do it but there must be a 'correct' way!

Mylar or Foil Balloon Arch

Hi Mike,

I am not sure if this is the "correct" way, but that's how the pros do it... they use double-sided sellotape. Apply double-sided tape to the balloon's "neck" and then fold the neck over with the arch line on the inside. Best is to use double faced foam tape to keep the balloons from turning.

You'll find more tips around doing a single line foil balloon arch over at BalloonHQ.com.

Hope that helps,
Margit

P.S.: We would love to see a photo of your balloon decoration (it does not have to be from a wedding, pictures from birthday parties or other events are welcome too).
