Balloon Décor Ideas –

  • Arches,
  • Walls,
  • Pillars,
  • Personalised balloons,
  • Balloon centrepieces,
  • Giant balloons,
  • Confetti balloons

And any of these options fit in perfectly with any aged birthday party or baby shower.

Another thing to think about is – where you are having the party. 

Are you having the party in a hall or at home?

This may limit you on how much décor you could have or the size of the décor – for example do you have room for a balloon wall, or would you be better off with an arch?

And do not forget if you are hiring a hall, make sure there is enough time before the party starts to get all the décor you want set up!

Pastel Wedding

Pastel colours are so popular right now. Are you thinking of having a pastel wedding?

They are described as light, soft, and calming. It is said if you like pastels and use them as a colour scheme you are probably someone who is friendly, sensitive, gentle and caring. Does that sound like you?

First of you will need to decide if you are going to stick to one colour for your pastel wedding or are you going to go multi coloured?

Once you have decided this, you then need to decide whether you are going to go full out and have everything pastel or are you going to just add a hint of pastel into your scheme.

5 Ways to add pastels into your wedding day

1. Balloons

Yes, balloons now come in your favourite pastel colours too. Add them as an arch or to your tables as centrepieces, there are so many different ways to add balloon into your wedding day.
