Balloons are one of the most commonly used materials to decorate a venue. These come in different shapes, sizes, colors, and patterns. Moreover, these are inexpensive and easy to dispose. If you are planning to use them for a wedding, you need to take the wedding theme into consideration. You may even come up with your own ideas to create personalized decorations for the reception.
Balloons can be used to decorate the walkway at a church. You may secure them with ribbons to the end of the church benches, either individually or in small bunches. Inflate them using helium so that they remain afloat in the air. Use long ribbons to keep them secured at a place, so that they don't hinder the passageway of the guests as they move around. This will also allow them to have a comfortable view of the wedding ceremony. Bunches of colorful balloons on long ribbons make an excellent choice for decorating the way which leads to the entrance of the reception area. These can be tied to the stakes in the grass, or to the base of a bulky ornate flower pot with silk blooms. In case of an evening wedding, it is a good option to tie them to small solar garden lights on the ground for enlivening the ambiance.
Arches also look absolutely stunning. You can easily get hold of a ready-made arch, and secure the balloons of a common color, shape, and size to it with a string or an adhesive. This will give the decorative piece a uniform appearance. You may even use a combination of two or more colors and shapes. The arch can be placed on the rear of the head table at the reception, or around the area where the couple would be standing for the ceremonial rites. For this type of arch, using helium-inflated balloons might be a better choice.
Balloon bouquets are normally used to create exquisite wedding centerpieces for adorning the tables at a wedding venue. You can use ribbons of different lengths for tying together a bunch of three or more balloons together, and secure them to a weight. You may also make a personalized balloon weight by simply wrapping a heavy object with a glistening mylar.
There are numerous ways in which you can create and customize balloon decorations. These colorful arches, columns, centerpieces, sculptures, and bouquets can certainly enhance the ambiance.
