Balloons currently are and always will be a party staple. Balloons are awesome! Balloons have obviously been around forever, but today we want you to think outside the box of using balloons on the mailbox, or grouped in a big bunch by the gift table. We want to share some unique and creative ways to use balloons for kids parties to give you some new ideas for how to incorporate balloons into your next celebration!
Set up a wall of balloons for a fun photo backdrop.
Make a balloon wreath to welcome guests to the party.
Use giant balloons as décor at the seating table.
Tie balloons to favor boxes for kids to take home.
Make balloon placecard holders so little guests know where to sit.
Gather pictures of the birthday boy or girl and hang from coordinating balloons.
Create a beautiful balloon chandelier over your party table.
Make balloon animals to fit your party theme.
Use balloons to create a pretty backdrop for your dessert table.
Create ice cream balloons for a summer party.
Paint balloons with colored shaving cream for a fun (and messy!) activity.
Water balloons make cute cake toppers.

A very important component of helium latex balloons is a product called Hi-Float. Make sure when you are ordering balloons you have the store use Hi-Float. This product helps the balloons last for MANY days and not just one day or less. A balloon shop should just make this a part of inflating balloons. If you don’t use Hi-Float in balloons, it would be like ordering flowers and having them dead the next day. Hi-Float is not needed in air filled balloons. You cannot use this on foil/mylar balloons. Those balloons can last a week looking good and inflated.
