What is the ideal size for single round balloon centerpieces?


Should I do it with a 17" or 24" balloon?

ANSWER

Hi Eleonore,

Greetings all the way over to Brazil! I am not a 100% clear about your question, as you are talking about a centerpiece, but you have actually submitted a photo of a floor standing balloon column.

If your question refers to a table centerpiece with a single floating balloon, I would say it depends on the size of the tables and the room overall.

If the room is spacious enough, you'll achieve a more impressive look with the 24" balloons. If the room and/or tables are rather small, I would go for the 18" (I don't see 17" balloons in Qualatex' latex balloon chart).

Hope that helps,

Margit

Regarding What to Use for the Column
by: Margit

Hi there,

With "Brazil column," you are referring to the image that Eleonore uploaded with her question, right?

For this type of column, you'll need a base and a pole, 5 inch balloons in two different colors and a transparent 36" balloons for the topper. You can fill the balloons with a hand pump, but it would be much easier if you used an electrical inflator.

We have step-by-step instructions for making a balloon column stand. Simply make it smaller for this type of decoration.

You can get 36 inch transparent balloons at Amazon, but I haven't found one with the same design as shown in the image above.

Lastly, here's a good video to show how to get the smaller balloons into the big one:

Hi. I saw your Brazil column and would like to know what did you use for the column and where did you get the 36in balloon from.
