Need help with balloon decorations? Want to know where to start? The following list of Areas To Decorate will help ensure the important areas of your venue are appropriately decorated, and help to carry out the theme or motif.
As a general rule of thumb, plan on spending 10-20% of your total budget on décor, including balloon and floral décor. Balloons say “celebrate,” they set the mood and make memories that will last a very long time.
Areas To Decorate
Driveway or Parking Lot – Use balloons as “cookie crumbs” – leading guests to the final destination.
Entrances – Transitional décor, a taste of what’s to come (in theme) or for a Grand Entrance use a Walk-thru Heart or Walk-thru Star.
Foyer – Add color and festivity while people wait and mingle.
Guest Book/Reception Table – Add Color to where you want people to make their first stop.
Cocktail Area, Bars – Signifying the “GO TO” area to quench their thirst.
