“Frozen” Christmas Party Balloon Display

Frozen Themed Balloons

Balloon Decorating Service. We made this balloon display to go at the entrance to Santa’s Grotto for a company Christmas Party. As the current must have for children was Frozen the balloons had to be themed accordingly. The columns were all made from air filled balloons whilst the arches were filled with balloon gas. At the end of the party we dismantled the display and gave the children the balloons to take home.

Make A Stunning Entrance To Your Santa’s Grotto

If you are going to the trouble of creating a Santa’s Grotto for your company Xmas Party why not go the whole hog and make a stunning entrance to really wow the children and their families. Hazel and I  built this very appealing entrance entirely in balloons.

At Christmas time balloon decorating is the perfect way to enhance any venue. There is just so much scope.

We put five helium arches leading up to the grotto and positioned a toy soldier either side to guard the entrance. We used Xmas colours to compliment the existing decoration in the room.

As trained, experienced balloon decorators we can transform to bring in a festive feeling for a great party or event.

Balloon Santa Claus

It’s amazing what can be done with balloons. If you need something eye catching to grab peoples attention then a skillful use of balloons can be the perfect answer. This is a Balloon Santa Claus I made for a Children’s Christmas Party. Christmas characters always work well and because the balloons are air filled they will last a long time providing they are not tampered with.

Eye Catching Entrances

Clearly marking the entrance to an event or party is important. Guests and visitors need to be able to find their way in easily. Balloon Decorating provides the perfect solution.

One of the most eye catching ways to mark the entrance is to use a Balloon Arch. Not only will this attract attention but it also helps to set the mood too.

A Balloon Arch marking the entrance to a wedding reception would be in pastel colours or white / cream etc possibly  with tasteful trimmings to compliment the colour scheme chosen for the venue.

A Balloon Arch for for a Family Fun Day event would incorporate bright colours to create a happy feeling.

A Balloon Arch for a corporate party, product launch or grand opening is likely to be constructed using corporate colours.

There are many possibilities and I would recommend using a professional Balloon Decorator ( either CBA, Certified Balloon Artist, or NABAS qualified ) as they will be able to advise on design, size, siting etc. They will also have the right equipment to do the job.

As both Hazel and I are CBA‘s please call either of us on 01748 821621  if you require telephone advice or use the comment section below.

Theme Party Ideas

Any party or event can be so much more interesting and fun if it has a theme. The extent of the ” theming ” will be determined by the time and resources available to the organiser and the budget. Some corporate clients are able to afford lavish decorations, props and entertainment. Usually they engage the services of specialist Theme Companies to transform the venue into an amazing set which will astound and delight their guests. Balloon Decorating can also be used to great effect. At the other end of the spectrum even a birthday party can be themed with a bit of imagination and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

Popular themes for corporate events include :

James Bond ( casino tables, black tie etc )

Carribean ( steel band, limbo dancing, grass skirts, coconuts etc )

Seaside ( Punch and Judy, deck chairs, fish and chips, jazz band etc )

Black and White ( black and white balloons and table decorations, black tie )

Las Vegas ( casino tables, balloon decorating )

Wild West ( hot dogs, country band, line dancing, mechanical bull )

Popular themes for children’s parties include:

Pirate Party ( Pirate Puppet Show,pirate  flags, pirate balloons )

Princess Party

Fancy Dress

When planning a theme party consider the following :

How can I decorate the room?

What music can I use to create atmosphere appropraite to the theme?

What costumes will people wear?

What food can I serve which will fit in with the theme?

Can I make customised invitations to fit the theme?

Are there any games which will suit this theme?

What entertainment could I hire which will compliment the theme?

The best way to formulate your plan is to get a group of friends or colleagues together and brainstorm ideas to produce a list of options. Then cost everything out and prioritise your list.

One of the easiest ways to change the look of a room is with balloons. For a private party it’s easy to do this yourself but for an event it’s better to hire a qualified and experienced Balloon Decorator to carry out the Balloon Decorating for you.

Make your next social event a theme party, the effort will be worth it!

Balloon Decoration Tips For Your Wedding Reception

Balloons can create a fantastic atmosphere at a Wedding Reception and completely transform an ordinary room. Balloon Decorating has become an art and there are many companies offering to provide a Balloon Decorating Service. Hazel and I are both CBA’s  ( Certified Balloon Artists ) which means that we have undergone a recognised training course and passed written and practical examinations to prove our competence. We are both very experienced and have undertaken many large and prestigious balloon decorating contracts.

Tips and Advice

  1. Employ someone who is experienced and qualified. Your Wedding Reception is a very important occasion. Use good people.
  2. Compare prices but don’t base your decision on price alone. It’s better to pay a bit more and have the job done well.
  3. Ask to see colour swatches / charts to help choose your colour scheme. When you know what you want ask for actual samples as the colours  on inflated balloons may look slightly different to what you are expecting.
  4. Consider timings. Find out how long it will take your supplier to set up. Liaise with the venue. Make sure that the room will be ready when the balloon people arrive. Agree what time everything should be set by and don’t cut it too fine.
  5. Make sure a parking space is available near to the entrance and let the venue know what is happening. Ask them to be helpful to your supplier.
  6. Exploding Balloons are often positioned above the dance floor and fired electrically by the DJ during the First Dance. Ask for a back up method of initiating the effect in case the electric method fails to go off. A pin taped to a long pole is useful as a stand bye.

Room Layout

A Balloon Display is very eye catching and planning the room layout is important. Balloons should be used to emphasize key features. Discuss these with your supplier in order to decide what will work best.

  1. Entrance. A magnificent arch or fabulous columns could be used to impress your guests as they arrive at the reception.
  2. Top Table. Use a Pearl Arch stretching the full width of the Top Table as a backdrop to the Bridal Party.
  3. Wedding Cake. This is usually placed on a table where it can be viewed and admired. Use a beautiful Balloon Arch to draw the eyes of your guests to the cake.
  4. Dance Floor. This is where you will take the first dance and will become the focus of the after dinner entertainment. A canopy of balloons over the dance floor makes a stunning spectacle.
  5. Special Effects. Exploding Balloon(s) can be placed over dance floor and detonated above the Bride and Groom at the appropriate moment. Check with the venue before putting nails into the ceiling etc !
  6. Table Decoration. Have clusters of three, five or seven balloons. Never use even numbers it looks awful. Have the balloons set high enough above the table to allow the guests to see each other when seated.
  7. Secondary Doorways. You may wish to mark out other entrances and exits from the room with balloon displays.
  8. Floor Displays. If it is a very large room you may consider filling some of the space with floor displays too. These could be columns, clusters, special arrangements or more elaborate sculptures.

Once you have drawn up your plan ask for an itemised quotation. Prioritize your requirements and cut out the items which exceed you budget.
