We are biased, we love a balloon. But it has got to be done in the right way so that it enhances the party! I am sure you all know how we feel about loose, over inflated balloons by now. Balloon arches are the best! They invite you in, brighten up the venue, create a sense of showmanship and magic. Ooooohhh we just love them! One day we will create and provide our own, but in the mean time we are recommending Balloon Wise https://www.balloonwise.co.uk/balloon-arches.html for the rainbowtastic creations. The perfect compliment to a CraZy BeanZ party. Their arches start at just £220, which is such a bargain!
If you want to have a crack at a DIY balloon arch, there are plenty of tutorials and videos out there for you to choose from. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQpTTJ6Jzko This is a great one if you don’t want to have the full balloon arch kit lying around post-party.
Of course we would always recommend you get someone in if this is a new skill and you have a limited time. Let’s face it, if you’re a parent then time is always precious!
The table is such a beautiful feature. There are plenty of pictures and tutorials online to help you create your masterpiece.
What we want to do is give you list of considerations before you create.
Setting your table outside? Don’t forget about wind! It happens all the time. The amount of unicorn embossed paper plates we have helped families chase across fields and into bushes. Mother nature always wins!
Position your table away from the party area. Having a clear distinction between the zones sets a clear boundary for the children. With the support of your entertainer and present parents, they should resist the temptation to have a play with the carefully placed items.
Put a seating area for parents facing towards the event. Ok this doesn’t sound like a party table layout, but it does have a huge impact on your place settings. The grown-ups need somewhere to perch for the hour before the little ones sit and spill juice over each other’s sandwiches. They also come fully loaded with handbags, baby change bags, everyone’s coats, camera bags. You know what it is like when you are out with your children, sometimes you pop your things down without realising where you’ve just put them. Oh no! All the cups are on the floor! Face palm! It happens to the best of us. So by creating clear seating for parents, they have a safe space to offload and relax, until they’re roped into the party of course!
