This past Memorial Day, we were called to make some amazing pieces for a local event. As you can see from the picture, we went with the age-old adage of “Bigger is Better!” With this American flag balloon wall and black archway, we delivered on our client’s expectations of something big.
American Flag Balloon Wall
Tall and patriotic, this balloon wall was a lot of fun to make for our client. Starting from the bottom, we added rows of red and white balloons to get the stripes for our flag. Each row was made using large balloons to create the band, and then smaller ones to fill in gaps and create texture for the wall.
Once we did the bottom half, we had to start adding in blue for the background of our stars. We used the same idea with the blue, using large and small blues balloons to fill in space. However, we made sure to get some stars on this blue background – it’s the Stars and Stripes without them!
Black Balloon Arch
This balloon arch was meant to be a compliment to the display table you can see up above. Since the client was looking for something plain to pair with the flag, we opted to make a black archway to match the tablecloth.
Much like the other arches we do, we color-matched the foundation to our balloons. Large black balloons were tied up the length of the arch. We finished it off with some small flag – gotta keep the theme going, after all!
