Creative decorating with party balloons

Party balloons are the most effective and affordable way to celebrate any occasion. Australia Day is just around the corner and Specialty Balloons have the largest range of shaped, printed and coloured party balloons to lend colour and creative flair to the party. For a delightful Valentines surprise scatter the floor with pink party balloons from the front door and let your partner wade through a thoughtful declaration of your love. There really is no limit to what you can do with party balloons but here are a few of our favourite ideas.

All the colours of the rainbow

You can use colour so effectively with party balloons. One single colour will make a simple sophisticated statement, keep it two-toned to co-ordinate with the setting or go wild with colour.

Helium filled or not?

Consider mixing helium and air-inflated balloons. Use helium balloons for decorating and air inflated balloons for party games. Tie strings to the end of your helium balloons and use a golf tee to secure them to the ground in the garden. Create a magic wall of balloons by taping them at different heights in a line on the floor. Attach party balloons in different sizes to a wall to create a bubbles effect. Assemble four balloons of one colour around one balloon of a different colour to create a balloon flower.

Must-know party balloon tips

Have your helium filled party balloons on ribbons and clips or air-inflated balloons going on sticks and cups printed ‘neck down’.

Consider the party balloon accessories you’ll need with your party balloons – sticks, cups, ribbon and clips are all available from Specialty Balloons. DO NOT inflate your party balloons with your mouth. You don’t want them popping close to your face. We can supply you with helium, hand inflators and electric inflators.

Printed party balloons

Printed balloons are the best way to compliment the party theme or make an announcement. We can give you plenty of printing options like:

  • One, two or three colours printed on one or both sides
  • Two colours on one side, or one colour printed on one side and a different colour on the other side
  • Three colours one side and one colour on the second side
  • Four colours on one side
  • One colour on four sides, including printing on the top

When should you place your order?

If your party balloons are being printed allow only five working days after approval of your artwork. Let us know if you have a tight deadline. We’ll always do our best to meet it!
