Party Picks: Stylish Balloon Weight

Posted by

We've come a long way in the party and wedding industry. Decorations and accessories which were once always dull, tacky or uninspiring have been revamped and given a new lease of life. It was with this in mind that Peach Blossom came to be.

My goal as founder of Peach Blossom, was, and is, to bring you stylish, beautiful decorations to make your celebrations truly wonderful and special occasions. I am so proud of the collection of decorations and accessories that you, our customer, can purchase on our website.

Even so, there is one teeny tiny accessory which I still have a problem with - the balloon weight. I have yet to find a balloon weight I like. Which is why I'm always on the lookout for alternatives I can use instead. If I've ever had to use a balloon weight, I've placed it inside one of our favour boxes to disguise it. So, when I spied this original and stylish idea from Couture Parties for something to tie a balloon on to I was pretty overjoyed (should I get out more?!)

A lemon is a perfect 'balloon weight' for this time of year too - the pop of yellow really adds a summery vibe to the table.

Isn't this just the most simple fix for making a beautiful balloon display? How do you tie up your balloons for parties? Can you suggest anything else which would look good?
