The Class of 2014 graduating from a High School in Essex were treated to Las Vegas themed Prom decorations designed and implemented by Balloon Inspirations – One of the UK’s premium event decorating companies.

True to form,  once the theme and budget were agreed, we set out to design a large balloon wall spanning the entire width of the venue. This wall served the dual purpose of ushering the guests in to the party area as well as creating a distinct separation between the seating/dance floor area  and the bar area. Taking design motifs from the icons of a typical “Vegas” Casino, “Diamonds”, “Spades” and “Hearts” topped the Balloon clusters which served as Table decorations.

Continuing the Vegas theme were the bases of the table decor formed to look like oversize playing dice. Large foil balloon dice and playing cards were placed at the base of the archway leading to the seating area.

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.

At Balloon Inspirations, we have the knowledge and expertise to create spectacular party décor that people would talk about long after the latest office gossip has dissipated!

Balloon Christmas trees were further enhanced by the placement of balloon Christmas presents around the base. These all formed a lovely frame around the dance floor area of the Marquee.

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 .

As senior schools in the UK continue to embrace the celebration of the final term at school , “Leavers’ do” is slowly but surely metamorphosing into pretty elaborate and sensational Prom party celebrations.

Once again at Balloon Inspirations, we had the pleasure and privilege of turning our Client’s design brief into a reality of colour splashes and ambience. An “Enchanted Garden” created primarily with Balloons was installed within the function rooms of a Golf club in Essex.

Hollywood themed Prom Decorations

At Balloon Inspirations, we often have the pleasure of creating stunning party decorations for High School proms, particularly in the areas surrounding London and Essex County.

Creating Themed party decorations is a speciality at Balloon Inspirations Grays Essex in the UK and working on Prom party decorations gives us the impetus to produce décor that would fire the imaginations of the celebrants, mentally transporting them to the scenes their preferred themes specify.

Hollywood themed prom decorations are particularly popular and we got the chance to give a school in Essex the “Balloon Inspirations” treatment:-

First, the graduands were ushered into the prom party venue through a spectacular entrance tunnel created entirely of  black and gold Balloons.

We were able to take advantage of the high ceilings of the prom venue to create spectacular ceiling decorations thus easily tying up the individual decoration elements into a cohesive whole. Graduands and tutors in attendance alike were ushered in true Hollywood style “Red Carpet”through the entrance tunnel/canopy into the main party hall – a true eye fest of Silver, gold and black prom balloon decorations.

More pictures of the prom below:

All in all, the decorations were a resounding success, helping to transform a regular venue to a truly spectacular scene, sure to be imprinted in the minds of those who attended the High School Prom for many years to come.

We have uploaded a brief video showing how we created the room decorations for this Prom on our “you tube” channel, view it here: Prom Party decorations – Hollywood themed Prom

Celebrations surrounding leaving high school is becoming more popular in the United Kingdom as more schools choose to celebrate this achievement. These planned celebrations often serve as incentive for students as they go through gruelling weeks of final exams, looking forward to really having a ball at the school prom!

This high school in Essex employed our services at Balloon Inspirations, tasking us with the brief to create décor for their “Starry night ” themed prom party.

The relatively low ceiling of the chosen venue presented a design challenge as Balloon decorations are traditionally suited to filling up large spaces with maximum impact.  The clever use of colours  – midnight blue, black and silver in the right proportions as well as the choice of individual décor such as the entrance arch, the twinkling silver star accents and the stage backdrop combine to produce exquisite décor within the space.

The suspended ceiling over the stage area/dance floor created a great opportunity for ceiling definition. The ceiling décor then helped to bind all the individual elements of the prom decorations into one cohesive whole – right from the  entrance arch through to the themed table centrepieces and  the stage décor.
