20 Balloon Decorations That Take Your Event to the Next Level

decorations with canopies and balloon columnsParty decorations are a ‘must-have’ of any party. Before your guests have even touched your delicious appetizers or dived into your awesome punch, you have to wow them with party décor.  As they say, first impressions count—and that’s never more true than at a party where you need to choose party decorations that create the atmosphere.

As a decor vendor, we know it’s incredibly important to look for decorations that make a big impact and meet your venue requirements.  For example, if your venue requires that you don’t attach any decorations to the wall or ceiling, consider free-standing balloon decorations, which take your party atmosphere to the next level without damaging your venue.

Balloon decorations have another advantage; balloon decorations can create an interesting focal point on any surface at your party: ceiling, wall, table centerpieces.  Plus, the possibilities for balloon decorations are endless—just ask us for ideas.  Or use these over-the-top balloon decoration ideas to get your party décor brainstorming started:

Last Minute (GREAT!) Graduation Party Ideas

Guide your guests into your party.

Even if you put all the information on your graduation invitation, guide your guests into your party with eye-catching decorations.  You don’t have to put up a custom neon sign, but don’t feel you have to stick to tradition either.  Be creative—you’ll wow your guests while helping them find your graduation party.

Make a statement with your entrance.

Give your guests options for fun.

Some of your guests are going to want to play, others to talk.  Give your guests who want entertainment lots of options, such as yard games, photo booths, or social media fun.

Draw people to your feature wall.

Don’t forget about the ‘late’ snackers.

Fed people are happy people; don’t forget to put out snacks or late-night treats for guests that are hanging out later.  It doesn’t have to be a huge course of food, but it should be something that’ll stick with them and keep them happy.

Do as much work as you can in advance.

To make sure you have a lot of time for fun, try to get as much done in advance—or hire someone who can.  If you need ideas for your graduation party, don’t be afraid to ask vendors for advice for food and decorations (after all, they’ve done this before!).  Once you’ve done all the party preparation, enjoy your party!
