How To - Centerpieces and Bouquets

Balloon Bouquet

Balloon centerpieces are perfect for any occasion from birthdays to weddings. They can be simple or elaborate, formal or festive.

This tutorial will help you learn to make some very basic centerpieces for your next event.

With a little skill and imagination you will be making more elaborate centerpieces and bouquets for any occasion.





Basics

The balloon bouquet is the most basic of all balloon centerpieces. All you need to do it right are a few simple tips.

1. Inflate your balloons correctly. Use a sizer to make them all the same size and don't over inflate. A properly inflated balloon has a teardrop shape, an over inflated balloon looks like a light bulb. It's ok to under inflate if you are going for a round shape, but make sure you keep all the balloons the same size.

2. Use odd numbers. 3, 5, 7 etc.

3. Make sure all the bouquets are the same height by keeping the top balloons the same height. Make one centerpiece and then use it as a guide for all the others. When the top balloons are all the same height it will give the room a uniform look.

4. Don't just use a mylar weight. Dress things up a little. Take 4 smaller balloons and make a weight cover or dress the weight up with some fabric. Party store mylar weights are ok for some things, but you don't want to use them for your tables.

5. Curl the ribbon tails, by pulling the ribbon against the scissor's edge. Easy, just like when you wrap a present and add curling ribbon. It's a step that is too often overlooked, but one that makes a difference.



A Little Fancier

For something a little bit different, but still simple and easy to do, try this centerpiece.

Balloon Base

Take a larger base for the weight, something like a mirror or decorative plate and attach ribbons in a circular pattern (or a square, or anything else). You can use hanging tabs (available from balloon suppliers) or simply superglue the ribbons down. Make sure that whatever method you use to secure the ribbons is strong enough to hold. Give glue time to dry and test all methods before using them for the big event.

Leave all the ribbons long for the moment, you'll trim the tails after you make the centerpiece.

Balloon Bouquet

Start with the highest balloon and work your way around the circle, making each balloon lower as you go. In the illustration shown we have the balloons arranged in a square with one high, two middle and one low. Play with arrangements and shapes until you find one that you like.



Wedding Centerpiece

Don't let yourself get limited by what you see. The same design looks totally different when done in different colors and adding a few accessories.
