Decorations that have balloons with helium

Confetti Balloons

Balloons and Confetti go together like cheese and fine wine!  

We have been incorporating confetti into our designs for a decade, as a finishing touch to our Balloon-in-a-Box, in poppable balloons for Gender Reveals and Confetti Cannons that have been synonymous with New Years events.  Demand has now become so high we’re buying every colour of confetti by the truckload and using confetti designs as the focal feature of our balloon décor.

Our confetti colours!:

We use the worlds best quality Qualatex Diamond Clear balloons to showcase the lovely array of confetti colours.  These balloons are available in Giant 3ft round (90cm) or Large oval 16” (40cm) size. Customers can pick their own mix of colours to combine.  You can choose to have it loose to shake around or alternatively treated with hi-float resin to cling all over (and also a bonus which extends the float life of the balloons by 2-5 days).  Add on a spritz of Balloon Shine for even more sparkle!

Rainbow confetti with a rainbow mix of Qualatex Jewel tone (crystal) balloons. Sure to brighten up this birthday party!:

These beautiful confetti balloons bring lightness, brightness and further dimension to block colours.  As the light shines through them and catches glints of colour they provide a massive impact – perfect when decorating small or large venues. Choose tones of pink for girliness, Gold and Silver metallic for the glitz and glamour of a Gatsby themed birthday, or just include the full rainbow for something bright, fun and smile inducing.

One of the most frequent questions we get asked (aside from if we’re sucking on helium all day long haha) is how we get the confetti into the balloons. We can’t reveal all our trade secrets but can give you a glimpse into some experimenting in our Balloon Lab in this short little video.

Below you will see confetti incorporated with other very on trend adornments – in our durable Bubble balloons with custom printing for an extra special gift, with bespoke hand made tassels and wrapped in lovely light bridal tulle.  Keep track of more of our ground breaking designs on Instagram or our Pinterest page.  Or just give us a call or drop us a line via email – we’re a very friendly bunch here at Balloons.net.au!

Olympics Fever!

It’s that time again! When the best of the best in world sport will be competing, all the diehard sports nuts will go two weeks straight without sleep, and everyone else has a collective ‘a-ha’ moment while finally figuring out what exactly the decathlon is*.

That’s right – it’s less than two weeks until the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics begins!

I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly getting excited. There is no better excuse than the Olympics to go mad with colour. One of the great things about designing balloon decorations in Australia, is that we have so many cultures, every colour has a team! Green and Gold for Australia – add a little blue for Brazil, drop the green for Sweden and don’t forget the Orange if you’re barracking for the Dutch.

One of the best ways to do this is with our classic helium floor or table arrangements. With any number of latex balloons, you can really show your team spirit. Keep it simple with them all the one size, or go a little further and top the arrangement with one of our 16” latex to really make it stand out.

Or, you can go even further and show your passion for the games with an Olympic torch like the one our stylist Lindsay created for our shop window in Annandale. Combine it with letters like we did, or have it standing alone amongst your team colours.

One my favourite ideas is to go all out with our gold and silver Megaloons to spell out ‘RIO 2016’ with coloured weights.

Or why not go for a more subtle look to show your love for the Olympic Values of Friendship, Respect and Excellence and include throw up a string of pearls one of our arches in the same colours? Blue, Yellow, Black, Green and Red. Five colours chosen representing the colours of all national flags at the time of it’s creation, meant to symbolise the unity of all five inhabited continents. Or let us put together some columns for you in the same colours with an Australian flag or Kangaroo on top!

Know someone who lives and breathes the Olympics? Send them a bouquet to show you understand why they won’t be contactable until the Closing Ceremony is done and dusted!. Try our new Kangaroo walking pet and an Australian flag foil with some green and gold latex for a patriotic feel. Or, if it’s a Kiwi you want to impress, choose black and white to compliment an All Blacks jersey for when they inevitably win the Rugby 7’s.

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.

3ft giant balloon wrapped tulle christening

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!

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!

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.
