Thanks to a certain recent hit movie, the carnival is popular once more and it’s revived the classic party theme we haven’t seen in a long time!

So ROLL UP as we’ve found a fantastic range of carnival and circus inspired party supplies from our LLC Vendors to help pull it all together for you. Just CLICK on any image below to be taken to that business!

Favor Lane suggest inflating your balloons the day/evening before your event. This will take approximately 20 minutes. When you are ready to start assembling the garland, lay out the balloon decorating strip and begin inserting the tied balloons into the pre punched holes. It is best to alternate the direction of which you push the balloons through however our packaged instructions will explain this further. Allow at least 30 minutes to assemble the garland.
