This is somewhat of an extension of my post last summer when I listed my most favorite & unique ways to use a Balloonatic creation…
During the past month I have been consumed with inquiries. Which is amazing. The best part? The requests that have come in aren’t for my traditional Balloon + Tail “column” style party-goers, but for elaborate, design-influenced installs, and I couldn’t be more pleased! Here are the top three install styles I will be working on in the coming months:
The Ceiling Swag ~ Picture this. You book a venue. The ceilings are drab or a canvas waiting to be covered. This is not a new problem when it comes to event planning…and balloons have been done before you could say, along with light transfers and fabric draping. This time around, think bigger. Giant balloons bobbing along the ceiling, or cozying up to architectural indents in somewhat of an upside-down-candy-dish sort of way. The icing on the cake is when we add miles of intertwined tassel swag, draped from balloon to balloon, to create a ceiling install that will likely still be talked about at breakfast the next morning.
The Floating Forest ~ Plant a forest of balloon columns, let them float to the ceiling, repeat. An amazing way to bring a high ceiling down to an intimate level of fantasy fringe, hung almost within arms reach. This is only a slight variation of The Ceiling Swag, but imagine the change in scenery from one to the other.
The Gazebo ~ Where there is no ceiling, we shall invent one! Picture a runway, or outdoor ceremony underneath a “ceiling” of variant sized, monochromatic (or not) balloons, all invisibly strung to a similar height above chairs.
Bonus | The Backdrop ~ Lastly, a little something I obsessing over other than installs above the head…the Balloon wall backdrop. I can’t tell you how anxious I am to see this variation of a backdrop in place. Again, variant sized balloons come in to play and as far as color schemes, endless. I prefer a monochromatic version myself, with a close second place that utilizes clear balloons and glittery filling.
