Welcome to 2018!
Happy New Year! From our team to your family, we hope everyone had a safe and fun time ringing in 2018! Balloon walls, pop drops, organic balloon installs, and of course balloon drops were a part of our busy 4 day installations around Chicago. The popular color choice for New Year’s Eve this year was… GOLD!
New Year’s parties and a balloon drops are a perfect pair. While some varied in color selection, the majority of the colors chosen for the balloons to be dropped this year were: black, silver, and gold. The kid friendly parties went with a rainbow color palette and a couple of companies opted for their company colors. Regardless of the color, everyone attending these events was sure to have a great time!
A residential soiree, a banquet hall celebration, a bar party, a birthday gathering, restaurant events, a hotel gala… we did them all! Having a party at home is a lot of preparation, thankfully we’re here to help with the balloon decor aspect. This host had a large organic garland installed above her staircase leading into the basement. The garland then kept going through the hallway, into the main room, and finally down a side wall. Her guests surely won’t forget that party any time soon! A banquet hall celebration wanted non traditional decor: blue, yellow and green fireworks and 3′ balloons. The bar opted for festive columns and balloon swags with a couple of pop drops. Glitter balloons decorated the tables for a 100th birthday gathering.
Mini bubble strands wrapped the top of the restaurant bar while large 2018 balloons were placed in the corner. At a different venue, large Gatsby bouquets and a deluxe wall was created. A ceiling fill of balloons tied to long metallic streamers and a “NYE 2018” wall was set up in the lobby of another venue. Rounding out the decor installations was the Drake Hotel’s Palm Court. The ceiling was filled with gold and white balloons on metallic streamer, gold glitter balloons were placed on the edges of the room, and the staircase entrance to the court was adorned with several Gatsby bouquets. A grand entrance sure to provide the “WOW!” factor as guests enter.
Some weddings opted for just balloon drops, which were shown in the gallery above. Some wanted balloon drops and more! The first wedding decor installation was an organic wave in black, white, silver, and gold balloons. The addition of agate, silver glitter, and gold glitter balloons took this piece over the top and the bride LOVED it! There were also a dozen silver and gold glitter balloons of varying heights placed at the back of her ceremony room which would later be flipped into part of her reception room as well.
Balloons spelling out “New Jones Eve” and a column of spilling champagne decorated the venue for wedding number two. Wedding number three wanted all the bells and whistles for their celebration of love. Not only did they go for a large balloon drop; they also wanted a large champagne bottle with glittery bubbles spilling out of it and an organic balloon wall to use as a photo booth!
