Balloon arches are a sure-fire way to create a grand entrance.
It is fast and easy to make a single line balloon arch with
round balloons. For an 18-foot arch, figure about 30 seconds per balloon
so under 10 minutes.
Begin by tying a weight to one end of curling ribbon and tie the other
end temporarily to a chair back leaving several feet of space where you
will tie on balloons.
Helium fill a balloon fully and tie onto the ribbon about 12" from the
weighted end. Continue adding helium balloons along the line making sure
there is about 1 inch of space between each balloon so they are not
crowded but evenly spaced along the ribbon in a straight line. You can
gently slide the balloons a little on the ribbon to adjust the spacing
End the arch by tying another weight at the opposite end leaving 12"
between the last balloon and the weight.
Tip: Each balloon on the ribbon takes up one foot of space. Depending on
how far apart and how high you want the arch, you should figure 12" per
balloon. The number of balloons you fill/ the size of the arch will
determine how many Balloon Time helium balloon kits you will need.
