Balloon Arches

A balloon arch is a fabulous decoration for any occasion and  creates a 'wow' factor every time.  They can be made from using helium filled latex or foil balloons to air filled latex and foils.  One of the most popular arches is known as a 'String of Pearls' arch and uses helium filled balloons. It is  ideal as a stunning decoration for weddings on the Top Table as it creates the effect of the balloons floating.

String of Pearls Arch

As a rule of thumb you will need approximately 3  x  11" latex balloons  per meter though there are different formulas for working out the approximate diameter of your desired balloon arch.

If your balloon arch is going to be wider than the height, 

 you need to add the width plus the height.

e.g.  Length 3m and height 2m

3m + 2m = 5m x 3 (11" balloons) = 15  (11" balloons) 

5" balloons are not used for String of Pearl Arches as they do not retain enough helium to float successfully.

If your arch is going to be taller than its width, you need to multiply the height by 2 and add the width.   If your arch is 3m in height but only 2m in width:

2 x 3m = 6m +2m = 8m x 3(11" balloons) = 24 balloons

If your arch is equal in it's height and width, the following formula will apply:

1.5 x height + width  therefore if your arch is going to be 3m high and 3m in width

1.5 x 3m = 4.5m + 3m = 7.5m x 3 (11" balloons) = 22.5 (23 11" balloons)

Air filled Arches

Air filled arches are invariably constructed of clusters of 4 balloons.

This arch was made using air filled 5" balloons in clusters of 4 to create the spiral pattern.  You will need approximately, 36  x  5"balloons per meter/yard

This arch is approximately 12ft in length if laid flat, but once arched there was just enough head room for 4/5yr olds to stand under.
