Choosing the right type of balloon
Balloons glorify every party. As compared to any other décor idea, they are cheaper and are available in a number of shapes, sizes and types.
1. Air filled balloons

These balloons are lighter than air. They stay upright on a single string. There are different decoration ideas that can be implemented with these balloons like swirled arches and clouds. Since they are light weight, decorated weights are available to control their placement.
3. Foil Balloons
These are made of shiny foils and are filled with helium gas or plain air. They have a long deflationary time which makes them last longer. These are highly durable because of the foil material used which makes them the perfect choice for outdoor events.
4. Metallic Balloons

Balloon arches are always an interesting idea. Surprise your clients and social networks at the entry point itself with balloon arches. The arches can be designed in such a way that they promote your company’s logo, brand, products and services.
• Balloon Arch Instructions
Calculating the number of balloons for an arch is the first requirement to create a balloon arch. To figure this out, you need to measure the width and height of the area where you wish to display the arch to get an approximate idea of the length of the line.
1. For an arch that is wider than it is tall-
Width height=total length.
2. For an arch with same width and height-
Width + (1.5x height) = total length.
3. For an arch taller than it is wide-
Width+ (2 xheight) =total length
• Number of balloons required for an arch-
The number of balloons required depends on the type of arch you want-
A. String of pearls arch- About three 11-inch balloons per meter.
B. Clustered arch- For a clustered arch divide the length of the arch by the diameter of the balloons and multiply the result by 4.8 to get the number of balloons. However, make sure that the length and diameter are in the same unit (example both of them should be in mm,cm,m,in or ft)
