12 Balloon Decoration Ideas to Try This Year

From kid’s birthday parties to work functions, balloon decoration is a versatile and eye-catching way to jazz up any special event. The inflatables are also great for improving brand awareness and promoting campaigns – especially when you print a custom logo on them!

While there are many colours and shapes to choose from, it’s deciding how to style your inflatables that is the tricky part – you don’t always want to stick to the typical arch or pillar. Let yourself be inspired by this list of fun balloon decoration ideas and give some of them a go!


Make them glow

Put a working glow stick inside each inflatable and blow them up. At night time they will light up and can be used as a replacement for lights! They can also be thrown into the pool for some extra fun.


Add some water-filled inflatables to a slip-‘n-slide to add some extra excitement to your next event. This doesn’t have to be just for kids – get the adults involved, too!

Make a tree

Turn the inflatables into a fake tree by combining several small green inflatables of varying shades. You might also like to add some coloured “flowers” to make this balloon decoration even better!

Christmas baubles

Create Christmas baubles by using round inflatables (Chrissy colours like green, red and gold work best) and adding an ornament topper to the base. You can make them as big or as small as you like!

Confetti inflatables

Adding confetti to some clear inflatables is a great way to add some fun, quirky charm to your event. This balloon decoration works well for kid’s and teenager’s birthday parties.

Fruit salad

Create a “fruit salad” by turning your inflatables into various fruits! Use different colours and shapes to create things like bananas, apples, peaches and grapes. When you’re finished, add some string and put them on the ceiling – or add them to a big bowl!


Purchase some pom-poms or make some yourself (this is a fun craft project you can do with any kids in your life!). Then glue them to each inflatable for an easy and attractive balloon decoration.

Photo memories

Print out your favourite photos (Polaroid snaps look great) and tie them to your inflatables using string. Then, hang them from the ceiling for a work event or birthday party that will have your guests reminiscing on old times.

Race car

If you’re feeling particularly crafty (and have a lot of time on your hands, or some friends who want to help you), try creating a race car out of inflatables. This is an impressive way to appeal to both the kids and adults. It’s also a great marketing and promotional idea for businesses.


Ombre balloon decoration can add a trendy and stylish touch to any event. Simply take a black or white inflatable and paint strokes of gold or silver halfway up each one to create this ombre effect.

Party favours

Make your inflatables ones that your guests can take home by adding party favours to them. You could use a small box or bag and fill them with food, office goodies or company merchandise. This is a great way to improve brand outreach!

Big and small

Try making your inflatables different sizes, with some little, some big, and some medium-sized. This also looks great if you use different colours – a colour scheme can go a long way!



Your balloon decoration options are endless! Let your imagination run wild and create something that you and your guests will remember for years to come.
