Sparkling glassware and festive paper crowns add more drama to the table. The crowns are great for photo ops and selfies!

Expert Tips

Start with the right size balloons for your table and space. You don’t want to use oversize balloons if your table is small, or they can overpower the design.

I find that 12 to 18 inches can work for most homes. They make an impact with minimal effort.

If you use 9 or 10 inch balloons, you’ll need to use more to create the look. You can also stagger the heights with these smaller sizes.

You’ll need one balloon for every foot-length of the table. For a 6-foot table you would have 6 balloons.

Tie the balloons with thin ribbon and weigh them down with mini ornament place card holders, small stones or other weighted objects.

PARTY TIP: If the mini ornaments are too light to hold the balloons, fill them with water or sand to weight them down.

A row of balloons down the center of the table adds height and interest so there’s no need for a large flower arrangement. Placed mini rose-filled vases on the table instead.
