Blow up all the balloons you’d like to use

Set the tone for your party, and pick balloons fits your party vibe. Please get all your balloons blown up before you heading to the next step!! Sometimes it can be hard because there may be a lot balloons in your garland or arch, we recommend you to use the air pump to save your breath and time. ( Balloons cannot be float so it is meaningless to inflate with helium ) Click here to shop manual pump.

Assemble Garland 

In this key step, we’d like to introduce the magical balloon decorating tape! I mean, whoever invented this stuff, definitely is a genius!!!

Cut a strip of the tape that measures the length you want the finished work to be. 

Starting at one end, pop the tied openings of the balloons through the small holes in the tape, 

Alternating colors and sizes of balloons.

Hang it to display 

You need to decide where you want to display it: Tie a long piece of string to each end,and get your family or friends to hold it against the wall, and make marks at each end. Then you can either use the adhesive tape to stick the end of garland into the wall, or you can simply hammer a nail into the wall at the mark and tie the garland to the nail using string to hang it. We recommend using nails.

Finish!! Enjoy the party !!!

    It seems like balloons are now part of some sort of tradition in parties, so I thought that I should incorporate them into my daughter’s birthday party. Thanks for the idea that I can showcase my treats with a balloon artwork to attract children into the dessert bar. I think they will find it fun and exciting if I hire a balloon artist to show them tricks as well so that everyone will enjoy the party that they will attend.
