25 ‘WOW’ Worthy Ways with Balloons

I have a love/hate relationship with balloons. I adore the look of them, they’re affordable, a no-brainer to use and versatile to boot; as you will see in the inspirations below. However, there is an even longer list of hates: I hate touching them, the squeak they make when they touch each other, blowing them up, tying them off, the fear of them popping, the dizzy spells from blowing them up, the funny taste they leave on your mouth (vom), the environment factor when people let them go outside! Looks cute but that’s seriously damaging to our earth guys.

Ok rant over, now for the visual feast here are some of my most favourite ways with balloons by the brave people who created them credited below each image.

#1 Personalise your Balloons!

Add a personal touch to your bunch of balloons with metallic Sharpies using quotes or ‘Mr & Mrs’ for a wedding for example.
