The Balloon Marquee
Did you know that there’s a way to be elegant and artistic with your balloon decorating skills? The Balloon Marquee or to some, the Balloon bouquet, is trending as one of the favourite types of balloon decoration.
What should I know about balloon marquees?
Firstly, balloon marquees come in a variety of colours and shapes. This unique creation combines skills in foil balloons, round latex balloons as well as modelling balloons. It is typically an air-filled design but there are some variations which will add helium balloons to the design as well. While it does require practice to create a good balloon marquee, it still is possible as you follow along to our simple tutorial.
Items you will need to make your own simple balloon marquee
- 5 inch latex balloons
