As though the fact that Christmas falls in the winter in the Northern hemisphere is not enough, the penchant for creating “wintry” scenes and backdrops for Christmas party decorations does not seem to be lessening.

An effective method that Balloon Inspirations has utilised for filling up large spaces, particularly in rooms with high ceilings is the introduction of Balloon Snowflake sculptures often of varying sizes in order to mimic snowlake occurence in nature. These giant snowflakes are often made up of white and clear round latex balloons with accessories in silver light blue and other popular Christmas colours.

The incorporation of lighting within the decorations additionally enhance the atmosphere of a cold wintry evening where appropriate while other decoration elements such as lit balloon Christmas trees, lit balloon parcels and balloon table decorations all contribute to the general “Christmassy” ambiance of the party room.

 

Themed Children’s parties – jungle-themed-party

Children’s birthday parties provide fun environments for the children, their friends and parents to really let their hair down. At Balloon Inspirations, we have noticed a rising interest in having “Jungle themed” birthday party celebrations for both boys and girls who are interested in the natural world.

At the Jungle themed birthday party featured here, the venue with large windows overlooking trees and fields provided a great backdrop for the balloon decorations utilised. Various shades of green balloons were used to capture a sense of the natural colours of forests, while individual animal balloons as well as animal print balloons also tie well together. Balloon flowers and balloon monkeys swinging in the “trees” all help bring the decorations to a human scale.

Themed Children’s parties – Minecraft-games

As this post is being written, a casual glance through the windows in addition to the definite “nip” in the air confirms this writer’s suspicions – Summer 2014 is definitely on it’s way to the realms of fond memories… Reminisce about those lovely and bright summer mornings in the not-too-distant past as you plan your next birthday party. In reality however, you need not wait for the summer months to have a garden party as the delights of modern technology means access to heating and electricity is instant even when partying alfresco.

If you are fortunate enough to be able to lay claim to some outdoor space around your home, you could, with some planning and our help at Balloon Inspirations transform your garden into a fantasy world.

As the game world of Minecraft is very large and varied, particular attention was placed on the use of colour as well as easily recognisable motifs in order to tie -in the various décor elements together.

Themed Children’s parties – Sea World party theme

Imagine your living room /lounge (or any other room in your home) being transformed into your very own mini sea-world adventure land…

This happened to a very fortunate 3 year old girl who woke up to the delights of sea world themed balloon party decorations from Balloon Inspirations.

The design brief was simple – create underwater themed balloon décor for a party at home; while the child is sleeping and as we really do love being given carte blanche on décor proposals, we set to work late on a Friday night.

The introduction of a “living” sea wall at one end of the room creates a great focal point and brilliant photo backdrop for the all important party photographs. The floor to ceiling height balloon wall in several shades of blue with fishes, bubbles and even balloon reeds all contribute to creating a definite sea life atmosphere within this suburban home.

Corporate Party decorations – Awards Night

Deliberate décor is a major contributory factor in the perceived success of most events – private parties or large Corporate functions.
Balloon décor as a medium for artistic expression readily caters to a wide spectrum of events/celebrations. Balloons are therefore as equally suited to small private gatherings within the confines of a home as they are to elaborate, intricately detailed lavish public displays that draw the attention and curiosity of passers-by in large public spaces.

Balloon Inspirations had the pleasure of creating exquisite balloon decorations for an awards night organised to recognise the achievements within the Corporate IT Sector.

The use of multicoloured small balloons within large clear balloons alludes easily to the Client’s Corporate Logo and the use of balloon table decorations in this instance helps to bring what is a large room with attendant high ceilings down to a much more intimate scale .
