How Do I Display A Balloon Garland?

1. Use a Wooden Arch

If you're looking for a stunning backdrop and professional touch to your event, hanging your balloon garland on a wooden arch is the way to go.

You can hire these from a local event hire store or create your own (we love a DIY) by following our tutorial here.

Assemble the wooden arch, paint it to suit the theme of your party and ensure it's sturdy and secure. Build your balloon garland using your DIY Kit

Then, simply attach your balloon garland to the arch using clear fishing line or string and removable hooks placed on the back of the arch. Finally, position the wooden arch as a centrepiece or against a wall, and watch as your balloon garland turns heads and becomes the backdrop for all the pics and memories made at your party.

2. Use a Balloon Stand

Balloon stands come in various sizes and designs, allowing you to create unique configurations to suit your party theme and the space you're holding the event. They're perfect for both indoor and outdoor events. You can hire them from a local event hire store or purchase your balloon stand here and see how easy they are to assemble below. Our picture (below) are taken on a 2m balloon stand and are perfect for our regular (3.5m) and upsize (5m) garlands.

To hang your balloon garland on a stand, start by assembling your balloon garland kit. Next, use fishing line or string to thread through the balloon decorating strip and secure it to the stand. Place the balloon stand in a well thought out position, such as near the party entrance or by the dessert table ready for the cake pics, and get ready to amaze your guests.

3. Attach To A Wall

Looking for versatility and ease? Attaching your balloon garland to the wall using command hooks is your best option.

Command hooks are temporary stick-on wall hooks that don't leave any residue when removed, making them perfect for party decorations. 

Start by assembling your DIY Balloon Garland Kit following the direction included. Once ready, attach the command hooks to the wall in a pattern that matches your desired garland shape. Hang your balloon garland by securing the fishing line or string to the decorating strip and then onto the hooks. Feel free to get creative with the arrangement, as the possibilities are endless. This method is ideal for indoor or outdoor spaces and provides an effortless way to add a vibrant burst of colour to any area!
