Loopity Loops Centerpieces
There are venues that constantly challenge balloon companies such as Balloons by Absolute Value. For the most part they are places that don’t allow Helium balloons for one reason or another.
Wings Over the Rockies and Temple Emanuel are two that come to mind. Wings has extremely high ceilings and if a Helium balloon gets loose, it could stay in the rafters for months.
Temple Emanuel when they remodeled their social hall a bunch of years ago. They placed sensors near the ceiling, that when broken by smoke or an errant balloon the fire department is automatically called. Fire trucks and firemen are not a good thing for an event, not to mention the irritating sound of a fire alarm.
I understand their reasoning plus most of the other venues that don’t allow helium balloons. So my task is to design new centerpieces and other decor that uses only air-filled balloons.
The task is to design and make something that is affordable, attractive and unique. One of the things about using air-filled balloons, is each centerpiece is unique, no two are exactly alike.
My tendencies are to make asymmetrical designs and then combine something symmetrical to incorporated with my design elements. The reason, is most people like symmetrical things; square, round or same height. That kind of thing.
Today’s new design is called Loopity Loops. The name came from an old carney ride, Loop de Loop. It uses 260Q balloons to create the loops. Which are then twisted together to make the Loopity Loops.
Color choice is yours, you can have lots of colors with this design or a minimum of two colors. In this case my client wanted blue, red and yellow.
We then added different size 11 inch balloons at the top and bottom as well as ribbon to give the symmetry look that most people love.
All of this is a attached to a stanchion. Overall height is a little over six feet tall. So the next time you are at a venue that does not allow Helium balloons, think of the Loopity Loop Centerpiece. They can also be used to decorated a stage or entrance to your event.
