Giant balloons and a light show at Sydney Town Hall

Hello Balloonies!

We wanted to share with you an exciting collaboration we recently did with Team Event at Sydney’s Town Hall!

Together, we created an eye-catching balloon canopy above Town Hall’s stunning ballroom. Rigging 48 white, helium inflated  5ft balloons across the ceiling, we set up a the perfect canvas for a spectacular light show!

This job was a great challenge that we think the Balloon Crew rose to. We love an interesting take on an event – nothing is too lofty and we are more then happy to work on large custom balloon designs! If you’re interested in producing an event like this, get in touch with one of our event specialists today on 1300 655 058.

Thanks again to Team Event for getting us on board for this awesome event!

The biggest trend in the balloon industry – Giant 3ft Balloons!

If you’ve been involved in events or been on the look out for party decor recently, you would certainly have come across the most popular trend in the industry – giant round 3ft balloons. Everyone has been going crazy for them! Weddings, Birthdays, Christenings, Product Launches, Christmas Parties, Promotions – you name it, people want them!

The great bonus for us with the growth in their popularity is that it’s no longer considered an extravagance but an absolute necessity to make an impact.  We’ve had the opportunity to experiment with new twists and designs on these big impact balloons to create even more of a wow factor.

You can see some of our elegant designs – starting with Tulle Wrapped 3ft balloons.  We use lovely, light bridal tulle for a soft and stunning effect, often teaming them with flowers and silk ribbons to complete the look. These are great because they are something totally different from the your usual event balloons. It’s really has a stunning jaw-dropping effect and we have had lots of great feedback about these!

We have been getting requests from all over Australia for the funky full length and mid length tassel design on our 3fts.  Each bespoke tassel is handmade and threaded together in the perfect colour combination for each event.  

Ombre tassel - our favourite design from our product testing session:

White with a splash of black and metallic silver. Absolutely LOVE it!:

I’ll let the photos speak for themselves with our Confetti filled Diamond Clear 3ft balloons below.  You might notice in the photos below that we can also combine some or all of the above looks for the most fantastic results!

Gold and Caribbean Blue (Aqua/turquoise) themed - 3fts with confetti and tassel, interspersed with large 16" (40cm) balloons. I love this look!:

A personal favourite and very very cute design that has been hugely popular for Christenings and birthdays, are our Hot Air Balloon designs. We use one of our giant balloons inside a net. You can either attach this to a weight or basket for a super cute hot air balloon effect!

17" round balloons as hot air balloons with handmade nets set off pastel coloured baskets. Delicate and beautiful:

Sometimes all you need though, is pops of prints within a gorgeous colour palette.  Alternating the heights adds further dimension for such a beautiful backdrop as shown in one of our favourite Baby Shower decorations below, incorporating clean matte White, with soft Rose Pink and Wildberry Polka Dots.
