It's a Party! Air Filled Balloon Decorations hanging from the ceiling

Celebrate The Day has the equipment to hang air-filled balloons from ceilings that have metal as high as 25ft. We use a magnet hanging system. It's perfect for school and recreational gyms, Car Dealerships, Grocery Markets and Department Stores. Balloons look great for weeks, with no concern for helium costs.

We work with local stores to provide balloon decor on a monthly basis. Just tell us your theme, we'll take down and setup balloons every month. As little as $100 to much more!

If your having an event at one of the many hotels in our area, you won't have to worry about helium balloons getting loose and the hotel charging an expensive fee to get fly away balloons down. The only direction for an air-filled balloon to go is down.

Some of the decor we can hang from ceilings: flowers, balls, stars, columns, garlands. Ceiling decor is also great at events with kids. You won't have to worry about balloon bouquets from the tables being carried around the room! =o)

For a free consultation, call Cindy at 615-613-3282 or email Be sure to provide your event details, including date, time, location. A photo of the room and ceiling your event will be held will also be helpful. Theme or colors for your event. Mention this blog post for a $25 discount on an order of $100+ ceiling balloon decor.

How to make a Balloon Arch and Balloon Columns

A balloon arch is ideal for many occasions, at the entrance to a party, grand opening or other special event at a store front. Also above the cake table, background for photographs and even at walk/races for participants to go through the arch.

Balloon arches can be helium or air filled. To find out which type is best for you, you should answer the following questions:

  • How long should the decoration last?
  • Is the decoration for an indoor or outdoor event?
  • How many helpers do I have for building the arch?
  • How much time and money do I want to invest?

A helium filled arch, especially "String of Pearls", is the easiest and less time consuming solution. As the balloons float, you won't need any sturdy construction. The balloons are simply attached to a nylon or monofilament line. This also works for a multi-balloon arch made of balloon clusters of three to five balloons each.

A simple variation of a single line arch is the "Link-O-Loon" (or Linkaloon) arch. Link-o-loons have an elongated tail at the top of each balloon to tie one balloon to the next.

All you have to do is inflate the link-o-loons with helium and knot them together with these ends. You can get a wide variety of Link-O-Loon balloons and linkoloon arch kits here.

If you attach clusters of four 5" balloons in contrasting colors between each link-o-loon, you get the beautiful result as shown in the picture.

The downside of every helium filled decoration is their short life span of less than 24 hours and the cost of the helium.

In summary, helium filled arches are best for indoor events that last one day or an evening. Wedding balloon arches would be a good example for the use of helium filled designs.

If you need a decoration for more than one day or for an outdoor event, you’re better off with air filled decor.

An air filled arch needs two supportive elements:
  • a frame made of a strong, flexible material such as conduit, PVC pipe or aluminum rod
  • a sturdy base at either end to anchor the arch.

You also need to consider how to blow up the balloons. It would take a lot of breath to blow them up by mouth. A hand pump could be an alternative, but still takes time. The easiest solution would be an electrical balloon inflator. If you don't want to buy one, you could try to find one for renting.

Air filled arches take some time and effort to prepare. However, you can do this over several days in advance and you can re-use both the frame and the bases.

Celebrate The Day has over 30 do it yourself kits (which include the balloons and most materials) for indoor use and we also sell the metal poles, arch cord and bases as a kit and sold separately. See them here.

We’re here to help, so if you have any questions please email or call 615-613-3282. We’re open 6 days a week.

Make it a great day, Celebrate!

Do It Yourself Balloon Arches, Columns and more for parties and corporate events

I have people ask me every week "how difficult is it for those of us who have no balloon experience to assemble your kits?" My response "Not that difficult at all!"

Celebrate The Day balloon decorating kits include all the materials you'll need except salt or sand (for the weight), scissors and helium (only for the arches). Balloon columns use air in the balloons, therefore less out of pocket expense to create them. Some of the kits include the hand air inflator and other kits the pump is sold seperately. Each description lists if it is included or even required for that particular decoration.  We also include a few additional balloons/materials just in case you need them. You'll get a full page of instructions and image of the finished decoration. Review when you receive your order and if you have any questions, please call or email us.

Not all balloons are created equal. Therefore, we include only Qualatex balloons in each kit giving you the best on the market. You can see images of each color available at

Books from Birth Valentine Dance at The Factory in Franklin

I started inflating balloons for the dance Wednesday, February 8th. By the time Saturday rolled around, there were balloons everywhere.

We placed an 8' Balloon Column at the entrance.

When attendees entered the room they walked under a Double Balloon Arch.

We even had a creation inspired from Disneys movie "UP".

The tables were decorated with Heart centerpieces.

It was a fun-filled evening!

See a video of the dancing and music by "Randy California" on our youtube channel.

Celebrate The Day raffled prizes to 6 lucky winners, valued at $40 each. Until next Valentines dance...

Thank you for stopping by and make it a great day, Celebrate!
