How to Create Balloon Tassels

The best kind of decor makes the maximum impact for minimal time spent. No balloon decor trend exemplifies this better than attaching tassels to large, helium-filled balloons. With the variety of Qualatex latex colors, large Microfoil designs and the plethora of ribbon and tissue options, your customers will love the wide array of combinations you offer!

Hot Trend: Custom Pastel Colours

They are double-stuffed Qualatex balloons, and you can incorporate them into your designs today!

The Art of Balloon Drops, or Soft Special Effects

Rocky Toomey of Future Affairs Productions in Rhode Island shares his experiences with coordinating balloon drops for clients like Katy Perry and Phish. With New Year's Eve celebrations and hundreds of balloon drops around the corner, now is the perfect time for you to brush up on your knowledge of this crowd-pleasing special effect!

Give Your Party Some Props

Balloons can improve a party in the form of beautiful decor, magical entertainment, or even as gifts in themselves. But there’s another underutilized option balloon artists can offer their clients: balloon props. In the age of online photo sharing, many parties have a photo station. Giving party guests the opportunity to pose with fun props will pump up any party!


I love all the knowledge and creativity oozing out of the classrooms, jam rooms, and competition rooms at Qualatex events. I love being with people who understand my balloon talk and who are as passionate about the art of balloons as I am. I've found my tribe!
