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! For colours click here.
They are the best size decorating option where an affordable price point meets impact. They can be helium inflated and float from the room, set from a weight as a free standing table/floor setting OR joined with other sized balloons to create an arrangement that will WOW your guests. 3ft balloons will float for close to 2 days without treatment or over 5 days with hi-float treatment.
As these balloons have become so popular, it’s no longer considered an extravagance but an absolute necessity to have the decor make an impact.
Ways in which we have experimented with 3ft balloons is by adding details such as Confetti, Tulle and Tassels. As seen in the images below, we use lovely, light bridal tulle for a soft and stunning effect, often teaming them with flowers and silk ribbons to complete the look.
Another great way to add some interest to these balloons is with the funky Full-length and Mid-length Tassel designs. Each bespoke tassel is handmade and threaded together in the perfect colour combination for each event.
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!
PLEASE TAKE NOTE. There are many variables to take into account when planning for your balloons.
Some venues do not allow helium filled balloons. Please make sure to check with the venue before ordering.
Changes in temperature affect the size and clarity of helium balloons. If you move your balloons directly from a warm to cool/air conditioned area it may result in the balloons deflating. If you are planning on hosting your event in an outdoor space, the balloons will be likely to oxidise quicker or pop/deflate. As such, we recommend finding a spot in the shade or going for an Air filled arrangement instead!
If you purchase your balloons the day before your event, make sure to store your balloons in a room temperature area that is out of direct sunlight. Do not leave your balloons sitting in your car for long periods of time as this will likely result in popping/deflation.
