1. White & gold
Nothing is more elegant than a colour palette of white and gold with accents of green foliage, and the same rule applies to balloons. Aim for a mix of matte white and gold foil balloons, and add your foliage carefully.
2. Matte and monochrome
Nothing is more chic than a matte monochrome palette. While many people think of monochrome as being black and white, the term actually means one colour. So pick one colour, such as pink, and combine multiple hues of the same colour for professional look.
3. Integrate your floral arrangements
For a show stopping photo-wall, entrance or focal point, you can go past a flower and balloon combo. Ensure you get that ‘styled’ look by filled every gay with flowers or balloons of different sizes, and be sure to stick to one colour palette, with a selection of only two colours or so.
4. Look up
One of the best locations for balloon installation is the ceiling. Ensure the colour of the balloons matches the theme of your event and tableware, and cover your ceiling with a dense blanket of balloons in different shapes and textures. The decorations are dramatic, yet out of everyone way.
5. Make it themed
Commit to your theme and extend it to your balloon selection and placement. Here, the balloons make up a rainbow and perfectly match the rainbow sweets. It lookspretty, polished and is ridiculously simple.
6. Play with metallics and texture
Keep your selection of metallics in one tone – such as all rose gold, all silver, all gold – and play with different opacities of the same metallic. Here, foil rose gold balloons are complemented by gold-toned pink balloons in a pearlescent finish, and white balloons in varying opacities.
7. Make it art, not kitsch
Think of your balloons as more of an art installation, rather than a kitschy kids party decoration mainstay. When you think of a balloon as a tool to create art, the possibilities are endless.
