2019 Wedding Trend: Glamorous Balloon Greenery


Greenery decor at weddings looks classic and chic. At this year's Spring Fair at the NEC, Birmingham, U.K., I had the opportunity to show a few decor ideas, using some of the newest products from Qualatex® that I believe will excite and inspire 2019 brides! 




Shades of green worked really well with the beautiful new "Graceful Swan" balloon. I used a selection of double-stuffed custom coloured latex balloons to create the organic style decor that framed the design.

To achieve the colours of balloons that appear in this design I used:

Outer balloon colours: White, Pearl White, Pearl Ivory and Ivory Silk 
Inner balloon colours: Green, Spring Green, Pearl Forest and Wintergreen.

I also included a few Qualatex 11" Chrome Green and the fabulous NEW 11" Tropical Greenery latex balloons, both of which added an exciting new visual texture - I also double-stuffed some of the Tropical Greenery balloons with Ivory Silk and Spring Green to change the colour slightly, again allowing each of the balloons to blend beautifully within the design.


The frame that I used was a combination of products. The base of the frame was made from the PlexiPoles System and are called End Plates. PlexiPoles are a high quality acrylic & plexiglass product and are available from www.PlexiPoles.com. To give me the height that I required for my frame, I bought some acrylic tubing that I sourced online. I cut it to the size that I wanted and connected them together at the corners with plastic corner/elbow joints. I knew what I wanted to create, and I was lucky enough to be able to source the right products to make it! Using acrylic made the frame light, airy and very elegant. To complete my design I added some faux silk greenery and flowers.


I created this centrepiece as one of my stage demonstrations at the Spring Fair! And although all the balloons had been pre-inflated, I managed to construct this design in less than 15 minutes! I think that the new "Elegant Greenery" Qualatex Bubble Balloon is going to be a true hit! As the Bubble is air-filled and weight was not a concern, I filled it with a selection of double-stuffed shades of green 5" latex balloons, and also a few under-inflated 11" Gold and Green Chrome™️ balloons too! 

Deco Bubble - "Elegant Greenery"

I am very much looking forward to working with all these fabulous greenery style balloons in future decor! I hope you like the displays! 

Happy Ballooning!

This looks splendid! And what is interesting is that you also can think of music at you wedding party as a kind of decoration. Well, from my experience not every couple think this moment through properly enough. And music very important for creating a certain atmosphere and memories that will come to your mind any moment you need them. So far the best artists booking agency is https://bstars.eu/. Many of my friends booked bands or DJs with the help of this agency and they really proved to be worthy. So if you're going to have a really memorable and awesome wedding party, you should check them. You'll definitely like their prices and additional services!
