Celebrate Unwrapped: Balloon Arrangements

Gone are the days of the humble balloon being tied together in a bunch and hung from whatever could be found for decoration.  Instead, these days we’re treated to spectacular colours and sizes, adornments, fillings and let’s face it, next level styling with these decorations!

Our Celebrate conference was held at the beautiful Sydney venue, The Deckhouse, with stunning water views of Sydney Harbour and the Harbour Bridge thanks to being surrounded by floor to ceiling windows. So room decoration needed only help bring the table styling together and provide backdrops for our guest speakers, rather than detract from our beautiful surrounds. But nothing short of spectacular either!

So to pull it off, we called in the help of Sydney’s own balloon Queen, Shannon from Born To Party, to design a custom balloon arrangement and add some great visuals to the room itself.

Shannon shared the load of the Celebrate balloon decor with another balloon master – Michelle of Party Splendour and we’ll be showcasing her work at Celebrate in a future blog post.

This balloon arrangement was truly a show stopper and everyone at the conference commented on it!







I loved how it looked like a waterfall of balloons was spilling out over the floor near our guest speakers! It created a brilliant feature at the front of the venue:

With no limit to what Shannon can do with balloons, balloon arrangements are a great addition to any event, and don’t be afraid to think big and be bold with your arrangements by combining tassel tails, mixing and matching the colours, styles and sizes for a dramatic effect. You can see more of Shannon’s designs on the Born To Party Facebook page.

You can find a great range of balloons and of course Shannon’s expertise at her shop in Mosman, or visit her online store where you can shop for invitations, decorations and  tableware too.


THANK YOU so much for your balloon magic Shannon!
