Here at Party Glitters in Suffolk County we have a few tips on how to decorate your wedding.
Balloons are a festive and affordable way to decorate your wedding reception. Although you may not think of balloons as sophisticated décor, they can be made into stunning displays for modern wedding receptions.
Wedding Balloon Arches
Guests can enter the reception site through a simple wedding arch made with balloons. Arches can also frame cake and dessert tables as well as the head table.
For couples who want a traditional arch, you can also dress it up a little. Consider having the arch reflect your overriding theme, like a rainbow colored arch or grapevine and ivy crawling up an arch. Add large floral arrangements to the end of each side of the arch. This adds a touch of elegance to the arch. You can also have large balloons displays along the reception entrance aisle.
Head Table Arch
The head table can be highlighted with a balloon arch. Have one made in your wedding colors and added as a backdrop over the bridal party. Add hanging balloons to help create the scene and large pedestal arrangements at each end.
Table Decorating With Balloons
Balloons add interest and appeal for table decorations.
Incorporate balloons into your reception centerpiece. The height adds visual interest, drawing the eye upwards, and you make the most out of reception spaces with high ceilings.
Head Table Backdrop
The head table is often a focal point for the reception. Make it one to remember by creating swags behind the table and along the front of the table. Large shapes like double hearts can be hung behind the couple. Add large balloon trees, topiaries or columns to the ends of the head table. Lights strung near or with the balloons can look stunning in soft lighting.
Create a unique cake table look by doing it with balloons. Small Mylar or latex balloons can be fashioned into a cake topper. Set up bride and groom figures made with balloons next to the cake. Hang a balloon swag made of an accent color on top of a tablecloth in the main wedding color.
Balloon Ceiling Decorations
Balloons are often hung from the ceiling at wedding receptions. This utilizes a large space and helps fully decorate the area.
Above the Bridal Party and Guests
Put colorful balloons above the bridal party or space them across the entire reception areas. Balloons can be filled with helium and allowed to float as they cover the space or you can create clusters.
Balloon Drop Over Dance Floor
Hang balloons above the dance floor using netting. At a designated time, have them "popped" or released and they will fall down upon guests. This is a fun twist to your reception decorations.
Additional Balloon Decoration Ideas
Plenty of spaces in the reception area can be accented with balloon decorations. Don't feel like you're limited to the entrance, ceiling, and tables.
A wall display creates a nice backdrop for photos and is an interesting alternative to traditional fabric backdrops. Hang up words and phrases like "I Do", "Mr. & Mrs.", or even your initials in a monogram formation. Use your colors and theme to tie the design into your wedding.

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.
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.
