What kind of string do I use to make a balloon arch?

by Ashley

I am making balloon arches for my 4 year old son's birthday party instead of buying them in order to save money due to this nation's poor economy. There are many different kinds of string in the world so I would like to know what kind of string I am supposed to use in order to make a balloon arch.

String for Balloon Arch
by: Margit

Hi Ashley,

I guess you are going to make a String of Pearls arch for your son's birthday. As explained on our balloon arch page, we suggest to use 0.5 mm Nylon line (also known as fishing line or monofilament) for this type of balloon arch.

I would love to see a photo of your balloon decoration (it does not have to be from a wedding, pictures from birthday parties are welcome too).

Good luck with your balloon decoration!

Margit
