Published September 21st, 2023 by Booths By Christy

In the sphere of event planning, trends come and go like the wind. However, some trends not only secure their spot but become essential components of the modern party lexicon. One such trend that has captured the hearts of party planners and attendees alike is the fabulous balloon garland.

In recent years, balloon garlands have burst onto the scene (pun intended), transforming events with bursts of color, whimsy, and an undeniably festive vibe. But what has led to the rise of balloon garlands as an essential feature of today's events?

The Visual Impact of Balloon Garlands

Picture an archway made of balloons covering all the colors of the rainbow or a cascading arrangement of balloons in various shades of your event's theme color. The enormous visual impact of these grand displays infuses life, vibrancy, and joy into any event setting. They serve as the ideal backdrop for photos, stage arrangements, entrances, dessert tables, and more.

The Versatility Factor

From corporate events and weddings to intimate birthday parties and baby showers, balloon garlands fit perfectly into any event type or theme. Their versatility lies in their ability to be customized in terms of size, color palette, design, and added decorative elements

Easy And Cost-Effective

While their visual effect is undeniably luxurious, balloon garlands are surprisingly easy to set up. With balloon garland kits readily available online, even novice DIYers can achieve a professional look without breaking the bank. Even hiring professionals to install your dream balloon garland can be cost-effective relative to the grandeur they bring to the event's décor.

A Nostalgic Throwback

There's something about balloons that tickle the inner child in all of us. They paint a kaleidoscope of happy childhood memories, and such emotional connections amplify the joy at any gathering. This connection makes balloon garlands an evocative décor element, amplifying the familiar and comforting emotion of joyous celebrations.

So, how do you incorporate this delightful trend into your next event? Here are a few tips

  1. **Event Theme**: Start with your event theme. Be it a baby shower, corporate event, or wedding—the balloon garland should complement the event's theme and color scheme
  2. **Design and Size**: Plan your design in advance, considering the size and shape of the garland. It could be an arch, a wall display, a table runner, or a free-floating entrance piece
  3. **DIY or Hire a Pro**: Depending on your budget and time, decide whether you want a DIY garland or prefer hiring a balloon artist. Remember, professionals will likely offer more intricate designs and durability
  4. **The "Wow" Factor**: Add a "wow" factor to your garland. Inserting flowers, foliage, paper tassels, or even lights can take your balloon garland to the next level

The balloon garland trend is not just about making a style statement; it's about sparking joy, creating a festive atmosphere, and making your event memorable. So whether you're an event planning professional or attempting to add magic to your own party, balloon garlands might just be the decorative twist your event needs. Embrace the trend and let your party rise high, just like your stunning garland of balloons.
