  2. Wedding Balloons Ideas

    Wedding Balloons Ideas

    Ballons are an integral part of any party. We associate balloons with happy and fun events. And, they are a natural fit for a wedding party and celebration. At Party Glitters located in Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island we have a vast selection of party balloons at affordable prices.

    We always reccomend our clients to call ahead for a large order. Depending on the type of the balloon, you should not have them inflated until 24 to 48 hours prior to your wedding. You don’t want to risk any of them deflating or getting punctured and popping. For that reason alone, it would be wise to order some extra in case of an incident.

    Here are a few tips on how to decorate your wedding with balloon.

    Although some may not associate balloons with exchanging wedding vows, you can add this simple touch of fun while still keeping it classy and appropriate. Stick to one color, either a color from your wedding palette, or you can’t go wrong with all white or ivory balloons. 
    Balloon wedding ceremony decor idea

    You can give ballons to a flower girl or a ring bearer to carry down the aisle. The balloon also is bound to keep the little ones occupied and happy throughout the ceremony and remainder of the day.

    Instead of the typical rose petals or confetti that guests throw when the newlyweds walk out of the ceremony, hand out balloons instead. This also would be a fun way to keep everybody together if the plan is to walk from the ceremony to the reception site.

    Show off your wedding color palette with coordinating and contrasting colored balloons for your bridal party to hold, or stick to one color for a sophisticated and trendy monochromatic look. Consider special balloons specifically for the bride and groom that coordinate with traditional wedding décor, such as bells. Head to our store in Hauppauge in Smithtown area of Suffolk county, Long Island for all your wedding balloons ideas.

    Everybody loves a photo booth, and it’s now easier than ever to create your own. Gather inspiration from this party that secured balloons to the ground at varying heights to create a balloon back drop, or from this get-together that simply taped balloons all over a wall.

    Use letter or number-shaped balloons to spell out special sentiments at your ceremony and reception.

    Welcome guests to what is sure to be an unforgettable reception by tying their escort card to the bottom of a balloon. Not only will guests have fun finding their personal balloon, the balloons also will instantly create reception décor by guests tying it to the back of their chair or letting it hang in the air above the table.

    Giant numbered balloons are sure to make an impact when guests walk into the reception to find their table. This is an easy way to incorporate your engagement pictures and provide a table number above each table for guests to easily find. Your reception is sure to look beautiful. At our Brooklyn and Queens stores you will find a large selection of numbered baloons in a variety of colors.

    A unique twist on the traditional cake topper, a single balloon or a bunch will bring a unique touch to your wedding cake, and it also will draw attention to it while it’s on display at the reception.

    Far from cheesy, balloons will make for a memorable getaway for the bride and groom. Whether you choose to stick to one color or a variety of colors for more vibrant photos, balloons will send the newlyweds off in a fun way to their next adventure.

    We hope that these few tips will make your wedding party truly unforgetable. For all your party suplly needs head to Party Glitters stores in New York City and Long Island.

  3. Independence Day Party Ideas

    Independence Day Party Ideas

    Independence Day is fast approaching and we at Party Glitters in Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island have come up with a few ides for your 4th of July bash. We have a great variety of party supplies to make your celebration truly unforgeable. In our stores you will find everything you need from 4th of July decorations to American flags and patriotic themed tableware. But let's start with the list to make your Independence Day celebration in 2017 a blast.

    Tasty treats

    What 4th of July celebration would be complete without treats? A cookie or donut eat-off is sure to leave a smile on your guests. First you string up these tasty treats on a stick or tree branch so that they are four or five feet from the ground. On the count of three everyone tries to eat their treat without using their hands and without letting the treat drop to the ground. To add even more difficulty, you can have your contestants blindfolded. You can always make some chocolate treats at home, head to our stores in New York for a great selection of cooking and baking party supplies. Bubble gum blowing contests are also fun. Use red, white and blue gum balls to see who can blow the most or the biggest bubbles in a certain period of time. Blow a bubble and then add a new piece of gum to your mouth. See who can chew and blow bubbles with the most pieces of gum.


    Capture the Flag is a classic school yard game that can easily be transformed into capture the American flag and played in your front or backyard. The rules are the same, but the flag is an actual American flag. At our stores in New York City and Long Island, you will find a large selection of American themed party supplies. American themed relay races also incorporate Patriotic themed props such as flags, balloons, hula hoops, Frisbees, etc. Props and party favors are always fun ways to incorporate the 4th of July theme. Just be sure to remind guests of the proper respect to show American flags, even if they are miniature versions.

    Fun for any age

    One of the greatest challenges of putting together party games that everyone will enjoy is that people of different ages will want to do different things. Some suggestions for how you can please many different people include having sidewalk chalk for younger kids, races and competitions for older kids and participating adults, and word puzzles for the older, shy, or less active guests. You do not have to have everyone participate in every game that you think of. Some parents will be happier watching their kids have fun and some kids would rather just take in the sights and sounds of the day. Leave your options open and just make sure that everyone can do something fun if they want to. Our stores in Brooklyn and Queens are filled with different party supply options to make your Independence Day celebration truly great.

     Water games

    July is the perfect time of year for water related play. You can incorporate the 4th of July theme by using red, white and blue balloons in a water balloon toss. The water balloon toss is relatively simple. All you do is split your group into two teams and place them in equal parallel lines facing each other. The person that you are directly across from is your partner. Give each person in one of the rows a water balloon. Starting just a few feet apart all the people on the one side of the line will throw their balloon to their partner on the other side. If the balloon is dropped, that team is eliminated. If the balloon is caught, then each member takes a step back and tosses the balloon again. The game goes on until only one team remains.

    We hope you will find these ideas helpful when planning your Independence Day celebration. For all your party supplies and decorations visit our stores in Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island.
