Tips for Using Balloons at Your Next Party

By Gary Nave

Balloons are a great way to decorate any party. They are colorful, festive and rather inexpensive. The two most popular balloons are latex and mylar balloons. You can even purchase a helium tank and fill them yourself. A kit comes with a tank, 50 colored latex balloons and ribbons.

One way to decorate your tables is balloon centerpieces. Depending on your budget you can purchase pre made balloon weights or make your own. To make your own weights all you need is sand and foil wrap. Don't forget about putting a balloon on each chair. If you plan in advance, you can purchase personalized latex balloons.

A great way to give out party favors is to package three or four ounces of candy treats in a bag and wrap it with foil wrap. Use the candy as a weight to hold down the balloon. When the party is over make sure each child leaves with a balloon and candy favor.

Another idea for a kids party is to hire a balloon sculptor. A good sculptor can make hats, animals and keep the party flowing for over an hour. This is recommended for children three and up due to the chocking hazards of balloons. Make sure no uninflated or popped balloons are left around.

Having a pool party? Definitely don't forget the fun water balloons. I mean you are already wet anyway and it's a great way to cool down while running around the pool. Check your local toy store for water balloon hose nozzles that make it easier for kids to fill their own balloons.

Going to visit someone in the hospital? There is nothing like showing you care then a bouquet of balloons. Remember, space is a concern in a hospital room so a few colorful balloons will do the trick.

Use your imagination and you could come up with endless possibilities for using balloons to add that extra touch. Balloons are a fun colorful way to celebrate any occasion, and best of all they always make you feel like a kid again.
