In decorating your party: How to avoid common mistakes: Here we talk about some of the technical details of party decoration and what you can do about them.

Usually, when you are planning a party, you should be planning it with the hall or room in the mind. This sounds strange but you would be surprised by how many times this simple rule violated the party. The truth is that the same occasion will call for totally different decoration in two different rooms.

Here are some major points that require attention when you decide on how to decorate a party:


A common mistake in the room with a ceiling is to use decorations that hit the ceiling or that are too bulky. An example would be a balloon arch or balloon columns that touch the ceiling.

This balloon decoration will take visual space and will make you and your guests feel claustrophobic and uncomfortable. 

If you use big balloon centerpieces at your table, they will be too low in a space with a low ceiling and will feel oppressive and overdone.

On the contrary, you can use very thin columns at the door, they will add height and elegance, making both entrance and the room look taller.

Similarly, using slender, upward-reaching centerpieces at your tables will give the impression of an unreachable ceiling, which will lift the entire space.

In the room with a high ceiling, you can also shrink the space by adding structures along the wall but closer to the center which visually making the center smaller and creating an “aisle” along the walls.


If, for some reason, you have to do balloon decorations the day before keeping in mind that regular helium-filled balloons will be half-dead by the morning and on the floor by the middle of the day.

If all you need are simple balloon bouquets, you can ask the decorators to use high float. This substance keeps the balloon from deflating much longer. If you have more elaborate party decorations and Anniversary Decoration Ideas then use air-filled balloons on a frame.


Things to keep in mind:

  • If the ceiling is the rough surface, many will pop during production, many more during the party.
  • One ballon takes less than a square foot. So if you are in a larger room, you will need a substantial budget to cover the ceiling. Or if you cover only cover the ceiling partially, the air conditioner or fan will blow the balloons around and will rub them against the ceiling. 


This is a very effective technique for low light parties… for the regular light or daylight parties they are hardly noticeable. If this is the case, one has to use many string lights with large balloons, cluster the lights together, and so on.


Just keep in mind that they look great at the first moment, especially if you have bright balloons inside, but in few hours they will be less transparent, kind of dim, and will become more and more opaque as the party goes on.


Make sure your decorator is aware of this from the beginning of the discussion. This isn’t to say that balloon decorations aren’t appropriate! This, however, should be taken into account. If you get a room with a short preparation time, there are a few ways to deal with it:

  • With the aid of your decorator, you’ll be able to choose event décor that can be put together quickly while still looking great.
  • To speed up the design process, the decorator might bring a larger decoration team. However, due to the time constraint, there could be an additional charge.
  • The decorator may hire a truck, make the decorations, and then transport the pieces to the location to be assembled, saving a significant amount of time. This, too, could be more costly because he’d have to hire a large truck.
