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.

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.
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.
