This creative decoration idea is great for baby showers, birthdays and pastel themed summer party. You can never go wrong with an elegant tulle to create a beautiful tulle balloon.

If you have wooden columns inside or outside in your party space, wrap them with balloons. Balloon columns offer countless variations in style, size, color and pattern depending on the type and theme of your party. It is ideal in combination with balloon arches, or as standalone attractions. Balloon columns are often placed at both sides of an entrance, table or stage. If you don’t already have columns at the party venue or at your home, you can use large sections of styrofoam and cover them. Then use hot glue to attach the ballooons to it.

This decoration will easily become the main focal point of the party.

You can choose a single shade or multiple shades.
Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, baby shower or a wedding anniversary, incorporating a multi-colored balloon arch is a creative and beautiful addition to your event. Use different sizes and colors of balloons and create a big arch in the center of the event hall. You can make the balloon arch with different types of balloons like normal pastel, chrome, metallic or helium balloons. The clustered balloons in the spiral form will wow your guests and increase the beauty of your wedding event. Balloon arch can be used to to decorate the entrance of your event venue or as a main decoration.
The mix of different bright colored sized balloons such as orange, pink, yellow, white would make a bright and happy atmosphere. This makes it a perfect example of a creative party decor. An eye-catchy balloon garland will work as the perfect back drop for your event. You can also add a cascading balloon garland that has multiple elements twisted together, from tropical leaves to florals to give the desired ambience for a fun party.
