Balloon bouquets are an inexpensive way to decorate for a party, graduation, reception or other special event. You don't need to pay a lot to have a balloon bouquet done professionally because it is simple to put one together yourself. You can be as creative as you like and customise the colours and styles of balloons to the occasion you are making the bouquet for. If you are decorating tables, make one bouquet per table.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Helium-filled latex and mylar balloons
  • Curling ribbons
  • Scissors
  • Stuffed toy or candy-filled containers

  1. 1

    Choose the balloons. Mix large mylar balloons with colourful latex balloons for a more visually interesting bouquet. Fill the balloons with helium.

  2. 2

    Tie curling ribbon to each balloon for the balloon string. Make each ribbon a different length so the bouquet will be of varying lengths. The mylar balloons should be a little taller than the latex balloons, for instance.

  3. 3

    Tie all of the ribbons together and tie them around something heavy, such as a container filled with candy or a large stuffed animal.

Tips and warnings

  • Pour confetti or glitter into balloons before they are blown up for a cool effect.
  • The balloons must all be filled with helium to stay afloat and keep the bouquet lively. A bouquet shouldn't have more than 15 balloons.
