Easy Step-by-Step Guide to make your own Poppin Champagne Balloon Garland Backdrop. Decorate a wall of your party space for any celebration with this unique eye catching balloon garland. It will even last a couple of days away from heat and sun. Best of all there's helium is not required. What You'll Need: 1 Champagne Bottle re-usable self-sealing Foil Balloon (91cm) Latex Balloons in assorted colours and sizes (Colours: Gold, White, Silver - Sizes: 12cm, 30cm) Balloon Decorating Strip Balloon Glue Dots Hand Balloon Pump (Standard or Dual-Action Size) All products mentioned above sold separately on Parties In Packages Website Small 3M removable wall clips, or similar (available from supermarkets and hardware stores) Scissors To Assemble: Use your own drinking straw (not included) or Hand Balloon Pump to inflate the Foil Champagne Bottle Balloon. Do not use helium. Using an adhesive of your choice, (such as 3M removable tape) place the Foil Bottle Balloon on the wall where desired. Making sure to leave enough space for the latex balloons to be added. Adhere one end of the Balloon Decorating Strip to the wall at the end of the bottle using your choice of adhesive (such as 3M Removable Wall Clips, not included). Inflate latex balloons with air to a variety of sizes and tie a knot at the end. Under-inflate making sure to keep balloons round in shape, like bubbles. If they become teardrop shape let some air back out before tying the knot. Do not use helium. Insert balloon lips into Decorating Strip holes and gently pull balloon knots through the holes to secure. Pull all balloons through the same side, to keep tape closer to the wall. Make sure to start with some small balloons closest to bottle, then greadully get bigger as you go. As you attach the balloons alternate sizes and skip holes as needed. Once you've reached the desired length, attach the completed Decorating Strip to the wall, at least every 60cm, using the same adhesive as in step 3. Once you've attached the last empty hole of the Decorating Strip to the wall, then trim off the excess Strip Tip - for an alternative to wall clips, tie a long piece of curling ribbon (same colour as wall or ceiling) to an empty hole at each end of the decorating strip and hang garland against a wall or from the ceiling. Final Step - for the champagne spray affect, use the Glue Dots to attach balloons on top of other balloons. You could also use your choice of adhesive to add floating balloons to wall around the decoration. Tip - use the smaller balloons to fill any possible holes/gaps where you can still see any Decorating Strip. Also, remember to relax, every organic balloon garland design is unique so your final decoration does not have to look exactly the same as the example picture.

If you're thinking balloons are just for parties, these examples of Wedding Balloons offer inspiration to create a stunning impact using balloons for your wedding.

After being given the honour of Bridesmaid duty, one of the best parts is organising the Hens party. Although for those who've never even been to a wedding before it can be quite daunting. Don't worry we're here to help. First step is determining the budget. Although a weekend away sounds like a fabulous idea it can end up costing a lot depending on your imagination. It would really spoil things for the Bride if people pull out simply because they cannot afford to join in on the festivities. It's important to keep in mind those who will be attending as not everyone has the same spending power. The best thing is to bounce a few ideas around the Brides closest friends with a range of budgets to gaige which is the most appropriate. The range of ideas could include:- Weekend away Glamping One night in a nearby hotel, beach house, cabins in a caravan park A pub crawl or step it up a notch to a 'cocktail' crawl - include transportation for the safety of all guests Party on wheels ie. stretch hummer, party fire truck, party bus A boat cruise A day at the races A winery or wine tour Spa treatment day Cocktail making class Cooking class Action activities for the adrenaline junkies High tea lunch or afternoon tea Hens party at home Movie night Casino night complete with professional gaming tables and a croupier Restaurant dinner with a balloon ceiling Keeping the gang all together is the most important part to make everyone feel welcome. If you are combining more than one activity then including transportation is a great way for everyone to get to know each other. The meal is traditionally the most set activity of any Hens Night party. Many restaurants offer a set menu/banquet menu which makes things a lot easier for the organisers. The style of restaurant can then be determined by the budget you are working with. Many Hens parties incorporate the Brides cost into the overall budget per head for each guest which is a lovely gesture, however not mandatory. Again best to feel out the Brides closest friends first and it may be decided that only the Bridesmaids will contribute. ‚ÄčIf some still have their heart set on a weekend away but decide it's not for everyone, then planning a separate weekend just for the Bridesmaids and even close family members/friends could be a great compromise. Choose Rose Gold & Blush tones or Metallic Gold tones with Botanical for a stylish decor. Balloons have come a long way and any look can be created to enhance the party space. Balloon Garlands make a fun yet stylish impact when used to frame the dessert table or entry. Check out our gorgeous range Hens Party Themepage Website http://www.therealdealfuncasino.com.au

It's easy to create an impact with Graduation party food. So many foods can be rolled then tied with a ribbon to look like Diplomas There's so many ways you can play on words to create your own themed Graduation Dessert / Lolly Station. Below are a few examples to get you started.

Are you looking for more than just Hawaiian Shirts and Hula Skirts.. Our Parties In Package party guide is provided to help you "create and atmosphere" at your party. As the party host, it will be your job to co-ordinate the events leading up to the big day, and to also make sure things run smoothly on the day. Your objective or mission is to throw a fun and exciting party that holds special memories for all that attend. There's a few important decisions to be made before inviting guests. Date - It's a good idea to check the proposed date and time with 'key' friends before committin. Time - It is important to state a starting time on the invitations. You may also wish to state a finishing time, especially if the event is held at a hired venue. Location - You have a couple of basic choices with the most popular being 'home' where you'll have plenty of time to set up and have all your supplies close at hand. The obvious disadvantages are cleaning the house before and after the party, possible damage, and space limitations. You have to enjoy the party too! The golden rule for the party host is, don't try and do everything on your own. Arrange for friends to help with the food and serving at the party. Alternatively you may choose to hire wait staff or have the whole event catered, allowing you to enjoy the celebration as much as everyone else. The Invites Whether you're emailing a e-Invite, or hanging out/posting paper Invitations make sure it's designed in the same theme of your party. You could attach your Invitation to a Flower Lei, asking guests to wear it along with their best 'Island Vibes' outfit to start guests talking even before they arrive. If your Invitation has envelopes then sprinkle some silk flower petals or Tropical Scatter into the envelope for a bit of fun. Remember to include on the invitation anything you may wish the guests to provide such as alcohol. If you plan on providing alcohol, make sure to add a footnote that guests should arrange alternative transport home, rather than drive. The Ambience Choosing an outdoor location with a lot of greenery and sand is preferable for a Hawaiian Luau. The most effective economical way to decorate the party area is by using beach towels as table covers, umbrellas, old fishing nets, hammocks. Decorate the food tables with pineapples, coconuts, watermelons and other fruits around the table to create a tropical theme. Then hang hula skirts around the edges of the tables. If your outdoor area is lacking greenery you could hire palm trees or use Inflatable Palm Trees. If your budget allows you could have sand delivered to the location for a great effect. If your budget doesn't allow for Hula Skirts and/or Leis for each guest, then dress up your helper friends or wait staff. Advise partygoers to attend in traditional attire such as Hawaiian shirts and shorts, sarongs & bikini tops and flip flops. As each guest arrives have the costumed staff at the front door with a welcome cocktail. The Entertainment Party games are a great way for guests to get to know each other better and get everyone into the party spirit. Everyone should remember the Limbo , providing loads of laughs for all. Hula Hoops are also entertaining and you could have group competitions to see who can swivel their hoop for the longest. To bring out the adventurous side in your guests you could Hire a Mechanical Surf Rider , which is a fantastic simulation of real surfing. What's a Luau without a Hawaiian music . Make sure your downloaded playlist includes the Hawaii Five-O Theme Song, Aloha Oe by Johnny Cash & Blue Hawaii by Elvis Presley. If you hire a themed band make sure it includes hula dancer/s. Not only will you be supplied with great songs all night but your guests can learn how to hula from the experts, creating it's own entertainment for everyone watching.. Food & Drinks What better way to celebrate a Luau than with a spit roast or Hungi. Search Yellow Pages or Google for companies operating spit roasts in your area. Or you could make your own Hungi at home. The easiest Dessert is fruit. Serve it on platters, as kebabs, in carved out watermelons and pinapples. You can display fruit as Palm Trees on a Beach. For a sweet touch turn donuts into pineapples, using green cardboard and scissors. The most authentic way to serve drinks is in carved out pineapples, coconuts and watermelons. A less time consuming substitute is to purchase plastic coconut cups, palm tree cups, pineapple cups and flamingo cups. Bowls of punch is another option suitable for this party theme. Make sure drinks are decorated with straws, drink umbrellas and cocktail animals, plus lots of fruit. You could set up a DIY section for guests to have fun decorating their own drinks.. The Party Check-List * Pick party date and time * Purchase your Themed Invitations and Decorations * Decide on the entertainment * Plan a menu and go shopping * Arrange for help on the party day * Get an exact guest count * Write out Final Schedule for day of the party * Purchase final party supplies if necessary, party food, ice & other incidentals * Charge the camera or phone Lastly, remember that mishaps may occur so keep your sense of humour, even if not every aspect of the party goes off as planned. The most important part is to relax, take a breath and try to enjoy the party as much as your guests.

A big party trend is Dessert Buffets & Food Stations. You could give it a more interactive twist for your guests with D-I-Y Stations Make your own Sundae, DIY Churro Bar, Ice your own cupcake Create your own Cocktail & DIY Mojito Bar Make your own Ice-Cream Balloons easily with latex balloons, ribbon and brown paper Make Jumbo Lollies using 2 plastic plates taped together then wrapped in clear cellophane Make your own Lollipops Foam Pool Noodles or PVC Pipes Round 60cm or 90cm Latex Balloons Long 260Q Balloons Sheets of Clear Cellophane
