Melbourne cup decor

A vibrant bright matte finish colour pallet sets the trend for this years Melbourne cup decor. We just love the design of our bubbly organic garland with tassels and honeycomb accents.

Our in store designer Hanna has created some cute and simple table centerpieces this year. We would love to hear what you think.

One of the things I love about my job as a Balloonie is being able to create purposeful art.  The latest on-trend design element in our industry is Organic Balloon Design. This lovely art form has given my team the freedom to use shape, texture and movement as a medium to not just theme an event, but act as a social expression.

It can be quite a challenge to find the right balance with this Organic style. So often we are asked and trained for uniformity and strict forms, whereas Organics is so much more fluid.  I know a lot of Balloonies in the industry who can be daunted at first, but come to relish and embrace the freedoms it allows.  I for one am truly loving all the ways we can make a vision come to life, to suit the design brief, the clients vision and the venue!

It’s been so great to see all the balloon art out there filling Instagram and Pinterest feeds. From French artist Charles Petillion’s pulsating Covent Garden cloud installation to LA’s Geronimo Balloons amazing building-scaling constructions, to local Melbournites Belle Balloons vibrant garlands.  With these artists creating such awe-inspiring work it has given a great reference point for our clients to allow us to create art for their occasions.

Here’s a small selection of my favourite organic pieces my team has created recently.  From table runners, to gravity defying Cantilevered Arches, undulating Clouds imbued with soft lighting, hot air balloon sculptures, acres of clean white organic garlands with splashes of Gold confetti and Orbz spanning the entire length of a property.

Ahhh! I just can’t pick a favourite – every job has been so fun and challenging.  I especially love being able to incorporate new textures and mediums into our balloon designs – using florals, tassels, garlands, metallic Orbz, confetti, greenery, lighting, crepe fans and lanterns.  The inspiration just keeps flowing! I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves and hope it brings a little smile, awe and inspiration to your day too!
