★ First and foremost hang balloons to your mailbox to spot the party place; place them as a decoration at the door; or you may even tie them to the birthday child's chair to mark the seat of honor. For an additional unique touch, make a balloon arch by filling balloons with helium, attach them (several inches apart) to a long piece of curling ribbon and fix the ends to the floor next to the doorway. When used effectively, balloons can create a whimsical, soft feeling in a room. As you plan decor options, consider how you can work with the natural shape of the balloons to enhance the room decor or serve as a centerpiece.
★ Balloon Ceiling
Use a large number of helium balloons to add a bold swath of color and texture to the ceiling in a room. For a soft, pretty look, attach curled ribbons to the bottom of the balloons and suspend them at the ceiling so the ribbons hang down above guests. For a striking, modern look, position the balloons with the tied end facing up.
