Elevate your celebration's décor with this colorful installation.
This idea comes from our friend Rachel Huntington of Bonjour Fete, based in Los Angeles. Before assembly, determine how many balloons you will need for the backdrop. As a general rule, Huntington uses about two to three balloons per foot of wall space. The below step-by-step instructions to building the garland, which will be used to create each "layer" of the wall. Some of her favorite color combinations and balloon kits can be found here. For a more eco-friendly alternative, seek out biodegradable balloons like Qualatex or paper balloons from Hiromi Paper (from $2, store.hiromipaper.com), Paper Tree ($12.75, paper-tree.com), and Stylishly Party ($6.38, etsy.com).
