I get calls for Balloon Decorations for events quite often – everything from Baby Showers to Bar Mitzvahs and they usually want to know what I can create and the cost. A good way to start is to decide on a theme. Do you want a circus theme for a 1 year old’s birthday party? Or does it need to be more elegant Balloon Decorations for a Sweet Sixteen party? This is the most critical piece to have decided before talking to a Balloon Artist.
Once you have your theme decided, contact the Balloon Artist and explain what you want. Do you want table centerpieces, a large arch, some balloon columns or a special one of a kind balloon sculpture? You can ask them to send pictures of ideas for your theme. You can also do research to get ideas as well. Keep in mind that if you choose to have columns, arches, centerpieces, etc… you will need to budget realistically.
A Balloon Artist may ask you what your budget is so they can give you the realistic cost for your event. Costs can vary greatly depending if helium is needed compared to air filled balloons. The Balloon Artist may suggest some alternatives that will fit your budget and give you a look that will impress your guests.
A good place to look for a Balloon Artist in your area is the www.BalloonHQ.com Artist Directory. You should check out their portfolio and decide if they can create the look you want.
Good Luck! Twisty Kristy
