Where can I get the net for this type of balloon arch?

I have been told that you can purchase a thin netting that you fill with helium balloons and it makes an arch. I have never seen one and need it for an event in less than a week. Any ideas? We need a large arch to go over the entry way (two lane street) at the start of a fundraiser walk. Help please!!

Net for Balloon Arch or Balloon Release
by: Margit

Hi Dodie,

The only thing I can think of is to use a balloon release net or tube. I haven't seen it used for an arch, but it should be possible. You need to make sure to tie both ends of the net securely to a sturdy weight, perhaps lamp posts?

The biggest net I could find is this 50 ft balloon net at Ebay.com.

Amazon also has them in different sizes. Just do a search for "balloon drop kit".

I am not sure how neat the balloon arch done with a net will look. However, if you could release the balloons, that would add a spectacular view to your fundraiser walk. You'll find a few pointers about doing a balloon release (including a link to step-by-step instructions) on my page about 4th of July decorations. Scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Best of luck, and I'd love to see a photo of your balloon arch.

Margit
