Regular Balloon Arch
Regular Balloon Arch

A regular balloon arch is actually just a string of balloon clusters, like a garland, arranged following an arc from the ground up. It\'s simple and effective! This is the kind you can see in a lot of places, since a beginner, an apprentice, or even a hobbyist can make it without too much trouble.

Variation on an arch

With a little resarch, and even just varying balloon type and size used in a same arch, you can get interesting effects that move your arch away from the straight and narrow.

By modifying the size of the balloons and a less conventional setup, you get an alternative visual effect that\'s also quite interesting.

Here we also varied the size and configuration of the balloons. But the adjacent sides of either arch have joined together as one single column, which gives us this double passageway.

To make a splash, you can make an arch like this one. Sure, it does use up 5 times more balloons and take 5 times more man-hours to make than a regular, garland-type arch. But the end result is really worth it!

By making two support columns and a roofing, you can get an effect that imitates elements of Eastern Asian architecture. Great for promoting the Chinese New Year or similar events.

A really fun arch! Made for a children\'s show, this giant reindeer was there to welcome the public passing underneath him, between his front legs and hind legs pattes arrière.

For smaller spaces, here is a completely different kind of arch. Using modeling balloons, rather than round balloons only, gives this design a lighter and more stylish effect, but it also makes it more fragile. Lasts for: 1 week max.

If an arch is meant to last a fairly long time (2 to 3 weeks) it may be wise not to make it touch the ground. Hanging above an entrance it livens up just as well, this kind of arch has the advantage of staying out of reach for the public, which more often than not just can\'t resist touching it.
