How to Make an Insta-worthy Balloon Backdrop
Nowadays, everyone’s craving unique selfies. If you want to make sure your event is memorable and full of photo-ops ready for your guest’s (and your own) social media feed, create a balloon photo booth backdrop that'll give them a reason to grin.
Not only do balloon decorations bring out the kid in any grownup but you can transform any blank wall or feature an area just for photos.
We’ll take you step-by-step through the process and get you inspired to make your own creative balloon wall. Bonus: no helium required.
1) Choose your location
You might be jazzing up an empty space just for photos, creating a focal point for the guest-of-honor, or making the dessert table extra pretty. Maybe you'll want to attach one to your stair banister or exterior front door area for a grand entrance. Once you pick your area or areas for your balloon garland, map out how you’d like it to drape. This is where you can have fun with your creative side.
2) Check for fixtures
If there are sturdy fixtures on the wall or ceiling that you can hang your balloons to, that’s great! If you need more holding points, get a few adhesive hooks (Command Hooks work great) and you’ll be able to hang your garland anywhere.
3) Get a Junibel balloon garland kit
There are a few ways to DIY your own balloon garland but if you want one that will look fabulous guaranteed without the hassle, get yourself a Junibel balloon garland kit. They come with small, medium and large balloons in curated colors, a 17’ balloon strip that acts as the spine of the arch, glue dots to fill in the gaps and string to hang the arch to your wall. You can merge their kits together to make an even grander statement and custom your color scheme. Click here to see their options.
4) Save your breath
Please make sure you have an electric balloon pump. This is a MUST. Do not even think about blowing up all of your balloons by mouth. You will thank me for this tip. Also, you can use it for any other balloon garlands you make in the future. It is possible to get a handheld pump as a 2nd resort, but for a couple extra bucks, the electric pump is a lifesaver. You’re welcome.
