Balloons are not just for kids parties! With a Helium Tank from Balloon Time, you can create your own beautiful balloon arrangements. For our Let’s Flamingle birthday party, we incorporated balloons into our bar, dessert table and photobooth. With our easy tips and tricks, you can create these stylish Instagram-worthy scenes.
Balloon Time is one of the best-selling portable helium kits in the world. These high quality cylinders are light and portable. We used about a dozen helium filled balloons, ranging from small latex balloons to confetti balloons to large giant sized flamingos. Balloon Time Helium Tanks saved us a trip to our local party store. As party stylists, we are the planners, chefs, photographers and sometimes the guests of honor. Getting everything done and perfect is hard, so we’ll take any time that we can save on the day of our party. During our Fire & Ice birthday party, we purchased large 3 and 5 balloons, and unfortunately one of them blew away while we walked from our local party store to the venue. One of our guests got us a replacement 3, so that we could celebrate our 35th (and not 5th) birthday. It was still quite stressful so we would definitely recommend the Balloon Time Helium Tank
We framed our Tiki Bar with gold, rose gold and confetti balloons. We ordered the TIKI BAR balloons from Instaballoons and the Rose Gold balloons from Paperboy. We filled the rose gold and confetti balloons with helium using our Balloon Time Helium Tank. Small letter balloons don’t rise with helium, so we used our air pump. Don’t forget to tie the balloons with string and tie to a wall or balloon weight. When using confetti balloons, remember to appropriately fill with helium. If you under fill, the balloons won’t rise. Confetti balloons with helium tend to clump to the bottom, so remember a quick grade school trick and rub the balloons on your hair and that should spread out the confetti. For tips on tiki bar styling, check out our Let’s Flamingle post.
the tropical sweets
The key to create a stunning dessert display is utilizing a variety of color and height. We started with a palm leaf backdrop from Paperramma and layered on gorgeous paper leaves in shades of green and pink from Candy Tree. Next we added platters, desserts and flowers. We placed a giant flamingo balloon on the end of the table and inflated him with our Balloon Time Helium Tank. We tied him to our backdrop (we could have alternatively tied him to a balloon weight). For more details on this dessert table, check out our Let’s Flamingle post.
birds of a feather flock together
We believe every party should have a photobooth. We started with a tropical backdrop rom Paperramma and then layered gold ballon letters from Instaballoons.
Like the bar, we filled the rose gold and confetti balloons with helium using our Balloon Time Helium Tank.
We hung up those balloons and then added the flamingo balloon.
Next we supplied our guests with lots of props from Instaballoons, Press Print Party and Candy Tree. Check out our Let’s Flamingle party post for more on the backdrop and photobooth.

What fun balloons! I have never actually decorated any sort of situation thus I have never used balloons like this before! Man, I am totally terrible at being creative!
Just pop into our blog before your next event for some Twinspiration! 🙂
Balloons make everything more fun! Also, I love the “Let’s Flamingle” theme – that’s too cute!
It was the theme of the summer! We loved putting our version together.
Such cute balloons! I always see these around and have always wanted to try them. They really do set the mood for the whole party!
They were so fun for kids and adults.
I do love the flamingo balloon! Ever since the pink flamingos came into fashion last year, I ended up with a big collection of them for my pool. Balloons are a great way to decorate a party!
Nice! We thought about pool floats as decor too, but then just went with jumbo balloons.
Great idea for our next birthday party, Going to Party City to pick up balloons is tedious.
Totally agree. One time our balloons flew away as we walked from Party Store to venue 🙁 but we had a friend pick up a replacement, but it was still stressful.
what a cute theme for a party! I love how you tied the balloons in, so cute!
The balloons totally made the party, for sure. Kids and adults both loved them.
I love these! I think fun themed balloons make such a big difference, and I’m totally signed up for this. I definitely want to flamingle now after reading this post! Great photos too!
Thanks check out Instaballoons and use our discount code – Twinspirational 🙂
What a great idea! Kids love, love, love balloons. I really like the idea of a photo booth too. You could get some really funny (non-posed) shots like that
Our 4.5 year old niece tried to get photos of her using every single prop. LOL.
I need one of this. Every year when I celebrate my daughter’s birthday I spent a fortune blowing up balloons. Good to know where to something like this.
Yes and easy to order from Amazon or grab one from Michaels.
OMG this is the cutest setup. Balloons really make everything more fun!
Thanks. We love incorporating balloons into decor.
I am wanting to decorate for my daughter’s 4th birthday a bit differently now. I like the ballon’s you’ve featured in this post. They are so beautiful and make your event look so fabulous!
Thanks! Definitely check out Instaballoons and use the code Twinspirational to save 10%. We also have a children’s section on the blog.
These look so good! Great to liven up a room for a party or special occasion. Not overly pricey either but make the event so much better 🙂
We love getting our balloons from Instaballoons and helium from Balloon Time. They add so much decor on a budget.
Loved the post you share. It was very useful and I got decorating ideas for next party. Thanks for sharing the informative stuff.
Good information. Lucky me I ran across your blog by accident. It’s really a great and helpful piece of information.
