How to make a balloon arch (video!) & reader photos


Balloon arch tutorial video

The Lars Balloon Arch is far and away your favorite project of all time! And so many of you have made it for your own events. SO, for our new YouTube Channel (videos every Thursday!), I thought it might be nice to show exactly how we made it with a video. Enjoy! And if you have more questions, feel free to ask in the comments! I’d love to hear what you have to think!

Love this tropical version of the balloon arch by @dreamesh. They added in banana leaves in a green, yellow, teal, and pink palette to add to the vibe.  @michellerogers14

    Have you ever tried incorporating lightning, such as clear Christmas tree lights in with the balloons for a night event?

    I’m so curious, how do some of these arches that go all the way across gain that dip or “wave” effect?

  3. Your comment is awaiting moderation

    Where do you get the balloons and is there a special type to ensure a high quality?
