Party balloon weights are a great idea for allowing you to string large amount of inflatables together and not have them sitting in the corner of the roof all evening. There are many different kinds you can select from that carry special birthday messages and other well wishes that help set the tone for the event.
You can also change the length of the string so that you can set them up on tables or at the ends of a gift table. If you are doing a kids event, consider getting party balloons that have popular children’s characters on them and include them in goodie bags for them to inflate when they get back home.
Kids universally seem to love these inflatable things and it’s not uncommon to hear them demanding their parents give them one of the decorative ones. Consider making it so that your decorative party balloons are available for people to “steal” should their children chuck a tantrum.
Don’t hesitate to plan games that incorporate the party balloons. There are all kinds of fun kids games you can invent that use them, such as a race where everyone has to hold one between their knees or even a game of who can pop the most in the shortest amount of time.
If you are doing a children’s event, always make sure you have extra party balloons. This is because children, especially very young ones, have a high tendency to pop their party balloons and end up in tears, so it’s prudent to have an extra to put in their hand before the tears arrive.
As mentioned, party balloons are a fun, cost effective way to decorate and improve the mood of an event while also providing a distraction for children. The simplicity of this kind of decoration has stood the test of time and is still as prevalent as ever at celebrations around the world.
