Big Beautiful Balloons

With the Bristol Balloon Fiesta underway, our thoughts have turned to all things balloon, which has inspired a look back at one of the most popular posts from last year about balloons making a comeback for weddings.

The humble balloon of kids party fame has been reinvented in a huge (and round) way to make a fantastically stylish Wedding decoration. The verdict has always been out on balloons at Weddings, but we are officially saying that balloons, as long as they are large, round and full of helium are now bang on trend.

I especially love the simplicity of plain white ones. Use them with small displays of flowers instead of large centrepieces and you will save money and look stylish. This look works best with single balloons on long tables, as shown in the picture below.

You can of course use balloons as a great way to introduce some colour, like in the candy buffet shown above. They also make a great feature for your photography as this gorgeous picture from Boutwell Studio below shows.

To get this look you need to order large 32" or 36" round balloons and a helium canister to inflate them. Alternatively you can inflate them with air and hang them from the ceiling like lanterns.
