Like chocolate cake and flickering candles, balloons are a birthday party staple. They come in all your favorite colors and can be hung around the room to add fun pops of color and whim. But sometimes plain old round balloons just won’t cut it. At Shindigz, we carry balloons in every shape and size for your every event. And our ultra-creative bloggers know exactly how to style them for the perfect party set-up. Here are some of our favorite ideas on how to use balloons at your celebration.
Balloon Meets Bling
Did someone say "I do?" Our diamond ring-shaped balloons are the perfect accessory for your bridal shower or bachelorette party. Jenny Dixon used letter-shaped balloons to spell out the name of the best meal of the day: brunch! Follow her lead, or use letters to spell out whatever you’d like.
If you use your imagination, a balloon can be anything you want it to be…including a unicorn! This mystical unicorn-themed birthday party called for some seriously adorable balloons, and the unicorn balloon kit delivered. Heather Bauer brilliantly propped them in empty jars to turn them into whimsical centerpieces at her unicorn birthday party.
