I have a bit of a balloon obsession and I am not ashamed to admit it!
Balloons are such a great way of styling and party celebration. They give bags of impact for very little cost and make perfect decorations, photo-props, gifts and play-things.
London based Bonbon Balloons create “the most wonderful balloons you ever did see!” You can send one of their amazing balloons as a gift perfect for any occasion. On arrival it will float up out of the box and the strings will carry your own specially personalised message. They have a beautiful selection of colours and you can choose from a gorgeous range of hand-crafted garland strings.
Big round balloons have been seen gracing the pages of some fabulous wedding magazines lately and they do look amazing! I love these balloons more for their appeal to children, the big, soft, over-sized, dream-like nature to these giant balls is straight out of Fairy-tale Land. This shot from A Subtle Revelry is just so beautiful. These balloons look fabulous and when used for children I think they are far more fun without helium. Pretty Little Party Shop have a range of these perfectly round 3ft balloons for sale.

Mini Balloons are one of my new finds although I am sure that balloon stylists have been using them for years. These little 5″ balloons are just adorable, I have seen them stuffed by the dozen into other clear 11″ balloons and have also seen them mixed in displays with other sized balloons. Here Oh Happy Day cleverly used them as oh so cute place-card holders.

Potter and Butlers lovely Etsy shop sell a beautiful cleverly designed kit for you to create this stunning cake topper using pretty coloured 5″ balloons…just add cake!
Balloons can create a stunning backdrop for a party table of photo booth. My Little Day have mixed shiny metallic helium balloons with their range of pastel and bright tissue paper decorations to create a fun and fabulous display.
Styling a party with balloons is easy, inexpensive and fun. With thousands of designs, colours, shapes and sizes to choose from you can really let loose. I love this display of marble effect balloons mixed with pretty fabric bunting with standard balloons and a pretty pink 3ft balloon.
Pretty Little Party Shop have a large range of balloons including tiny balloons, polka dot balloons 3ft balloons and diamond clear balloons
