Balloons: a trend at any kind of event

Balloon decorations has been a trend at events  for a while but now it’s available to everybody

It’s been long gone the classic clown doing dog balloon art at kids parties, in fact, balloon art can turn hundreds of balloons into amazing figures. Balloon arches and columns have decorated hundreds of parties; but a few months ago, balloon art took a new turn and it’s grown considerably since then, focusing on creating new figures and silhouettes much more advanced only with balloons. At Comercial Persan we know the difference that a good setting and decoration with balloons can make at a party, because it’s the easiest way to make an impact either on kids or adults because it brings back your child memories and it’s also an explosion of color and shine.

But at a party you’ll find much more than a palm tree made out of brown balloons for the trunk and green ones for the leaves; the next step to upgrade your decorations with balloon art is to combine giant balloons, creating for example a bottle, next to normal size balloons placed on a row symbolizing the liquid in the bottle. There’s no limit when it comes to imagination and balloon art. You can even build a tiger out of hundreds of balloons for your party.

Another trend that’s becoming stronger on party decorations is releasing balloons at the end of the party. The structure of the figure is specifically made so that when you release the balloons, they’ll separate at the same time on the sky creating the perfect ending for your balloon decorated party. Of course we’re not only talking about normal size balloons, because you’ll be able to create infinite figures with all the designs you’ll find in our balloon catalog.

Arts and crafts with balloons: original and fun

Arts and crafts with balloons: original and fun

Birthday parties, festivals and carnivals are special events perfect for you to show off your skills at balloon art. Before a party, usually you have to decorate the place. Usually, a living room or a dining room…a rather large space able to welcome a lot of people allowing them to be comfortable. To decorate a place like this we need lots of elements such as balloons.

Balloon art is very common when we attend, for example, festivals or parties where kids represent are a big percentage on the guest list. Due to its twisting properties, who hasn’t already seen a sword or a giraffe made out of balloons? We often also see mouse balloons, snake balloons or even fish balloons. This art is, without a doubt, very fun and advisable to make laugh and amuse kids.

But this art is not only about making figures out of balloons; there’re other kinds of arts and crafts with balloons that, even if they’re less popular they’re much more original and attractive. For example, we can decorate with balloons choosing the rainbow color spectrum: red, orange, yellow, green, blur, violet and cyan. Combining these colors appropriately, they can add warmth to any kind of party.

Also, with different color balloons you can create funny cartoons using the balloons as the face and decorating it accordingly with its nose, eyes, mouth, etc; but there’s also balloon art that doesn’t directly decorate the balloon. That is, in this art you can play with the balloon as you wish and when you’re done you only need to tie some threads to pliers and placing it over a little figure. That way you’ll get a pretty fun and amusing décor thanks to balloon art.

Here’s an easy example for making a butterfly with balloons. First of all we inflate 4 small balloons; two of them have to be a little bigger. We join the balloons tying them leaving the bigger ones on the top and that’s how we get the wings. For the body we’ll use a big and thin balloon inflating only the center of it and leaving deflated both ends, once it’s inflated we place them between the 4 balloons (wings) and we’ll tie the ends that aren’t inflated. For the feelers we’ll inflate another thin and tall balloon and we’ll carefully place it between the wings and the body (upper part) and to attach it, we’ll carefully twist it to make a knot and there you have it: a butterfly made out of balloons

Imagination and balloon art: balloon origami

Imagination and balloon art: balloon origami

There are many fans of crafts because of the endless possibilities they allow to create things on any material. All you need is some imagination. Generally, the first that comes to mind when it comes to making crafts are materials such as paper, carton, fabrics and tapes, to create details such as origamis or patchwork. But balloons are also useful for these inventions.

Balloon art is a practice with circus origins, where you use the balloons to encourage the audience manipulating them until you make figures of different animals and objects. This art uses a special balloon type that has more resistance so that the balloon won’t blow while it is manipulated, being the most used balloons those in size 260. There are two styles in balloon art, the simple modeling that uses a single balloon for each shape, and the multiple modeling, that uses more than one. Also, each time you create new balloons with different figures that allow to create and adopt new shapes.

Today, balloon art is one of the main shows in any birthday party, where the clowns give away the children a toy or unexpected detail with a simple balloon. However, it is also commonly used in decorating, especially in events such as baby showers and the birthday parties of the tiniest ones, to create particular scenarios and embrace the theme of the party.
