Luc Bertrand of WAW Balloons has very kindly created 2 lovely design ideas for Christmas for 'The Very Best Balloon Blog' plus he shows us how to make the perfect base too!
18 x 11" Christmas Snowflakes - 96588
14 x 11" White - 43802
2 x 5" Green - 43561
1 x 646Q Red - 13786

Starting from the base working upwards.
- Inflate base cluster to 9" (Green)
- Second cluster to 7" (Red)
- Third cluster to 5" (White)
For the 'Puffball'.
- Inflate the Red and Green Christmas Snowflakes to 10.5" and create 2 x 5-balloon clusters
- Inflate the White 11" to 6" and create 2 x 5-balloon clusters.
- Inflate 2 x 5" Green to 3.5"
To make the 'Puffball', start by laying one of the white 5-balloon cluster flat, you can add a 160Q to secure the additional clusters or you can tie the balloons neck to neck.
Now add the first of the coloured 5- 11" balloon clusters and then the second and then finally the other White 5-balloon cluster, securing each cluster as you go using your preferred method.
Finally add the 2 x 5" Green at the centre of the 'Puffball' on each side,
Luc has covered his pole using a red 646Q... a great technique- simply stretch the balloon over the pole and secure at both ends!

For added value try adding 5 x Green 350Q balloons!
