Table Bases - More than just an Anchor for your Balloon Decorations

Table bases anchor your balloon bouquet, but they are also one of its decorative elements. Apart from the floating balloons, the other main thing that the eyes of your guests round the table will be drawn to is your bouquet anchor.

So it's important to create a centerpiece that complements your balloon decoration perfectly.

For each balloon centerpiece featured in this guide we show you, in easy to follow steps, how to put together complementing balloon anchors. Our examples will cover a wide variety of styles and materials. 

Our first example is a balloon sand weight for the Balloon Bouquet "Simple & Elegant." Its elegant look makes it the perfect balloon anchor for wedding table decorations.

Main ingredients are a sand filled balloon, cellophane and curling ribbons.
