One of the most magical balloon party ideas is lantern balloons. All you have to do is add a glowstick to the balloon before inflating. This will give the balloons a subtle glow that’s sure to “wow” your guests. These work especially well for nighttime events.
Add confetti inside any standard balloon to give it some pizzaz. When you add to clear balloons, confetti stans out and adds sparkle to your party. However, you can also use confetti balloons for gender reveals by placing either pink or blue confetti in a dark-colored balloon.
Mini Birthday Cake Balloons
Use teeny tiny balloons to decorate a birthday cake! Fill the small balloons and attach them to wooden skewers. Stick the skewers in the cake at various heights to create a mini balloon bouquet on top of the cake!
Pool Party Balloons
Party balloons aren’t just for land and sky, they also make great pool decor. Fill up balloons and set them to float on top of your pool. If your party is at night, add glow sticks to the balloons as well.
One of the simplest creative balloon ideas is to create wall decor with different-sized balloons. Fill up small, medium, and large balloons of the same color pallets. Attach them to the wall for a fun 3D bubble effect.
Ice Cream Balloons
Make regular balloons look like ice cream by rolling brown construction paper into a cone shape. Tape the cone to the bottom of the balloon and there you have it! Fill with helium for floating cones or opt for regular air and tape them where you’d like.
Balloon Party Invitations
Attach an uninflated balloon to each invitation. Encourage each guest to create their own balloon masterpiece, filling it and decorating it as they wish. Have the guests bring their balloons to the event and use the guest-made balloons as one-of-a-kind decor!
Balloon arches are a dramatic decor element that draws eyes. Assemble balloons in your color panel to create an arch. Secure the arch to a door frame or to the floor.
