WOOHOO New year’s eve is almost upon us and it’s time to get into that party feeling! (unless you are already of course from all the Christmas festivities!) If you’re going to be throwing your own party this year then why not make a fun balloon backdrop for your guests to take photos in front of? It will be a great talking point and doesn’t just have to be for new year’s eve! How ace would this look at a wedding?! You could even match the balloons to your theme!
The amazing Paula from The Giant Balloon Co sent us all of these gorgeous balloons to create this backdrop, we went for different shades of pinks, gold and whites and we love how it turned out! Here’s how to recreate the look…
YOU WILL NEED:
Normal sized balloons & small balloons in a variation of colours (We used around 50 on the wall and had about 30 on the floor) // Balloon pump // Strong tape (We used parcel tape) // Sellotape //
Blow up all of your balloons using your pump so that you can see exactly what you have of each. We found it best to blow up the normal size balloons to full size and a medium size just so that we could fit them in the gaps easier and create a more interesting look with lots of different sizes.
Start by taping a few of your biggest balloons to the wall, securing them in place on the ends of the balloons. Vary the colours as you build around each balloon.
Keep going and filling in the gaps with your smallest balloons. We used sellotape to adhere these to the other balloons and keep them in place.
Add more and more balloons until you’re happy with all of the placements and everything is nice and sturdy and in place!
Push the rest of your balloons to the base of the display, all around the floor so that your guests can step amongst them!
Then all that’s left to do is grab yourself a drink! I would definitely recommend making this display the morning of the party, it took us a lot of time to create (around 3-4 hours in total) so you really don’t want to be rushing around before hand and getting stressed over the backdrop. Better to have it done and ready in the morning or even the day before! xx
