Balloon Decor Descriptions

Balloon Arch- The most well known form of balloon décor next to the balloons on string.  Arches can be framed or unframed, and be made in a variety of patterns and shapes.

Balloon Columns – Free standing balloon structure where groups of balloons are set directly on top of each other in various ways.  There are many different shapes and patterns that the column could have, though the most widely known is the spiral pattern.  

Balloon Column Lamps – (Lighted Balloon) - these are really elegant and elicit a “Wow” response- this refers to balloon columns that have a balloon on top (often a jumbo balloon) that has a light bulb inside of the top balloon.  The light can be a soft light, all the way to a bright bulb with a 100 watt output.  Your balloon professional will know which lights work best without getting too hot. 

Balloon Drop - Often seen on New Year’s Eve or at political conventions.  There is a bag of balloons on the ceiling, and at a given cue, a cord is pulled releasing all the balloons inside.


Balloon Wall/Backdrop - A wall or backdrop made out of balloons.  It can be made with a hard structure, like a steel grid, or made from a series of garland that is put together.
