No Helium Required for this Epic Balloon Ceiling


Alison Faulkner knows how to throw a party. This amazing balloon ceiling is just one of the truly creative details created for her candy themed dance party.

Don’t waste your money on expensive helium gas, a roll of fishing line will do the trick to perform this gravity defying illusion!

Gather up your friends to help on this one, and don’t forget the balloon pumps! An electric inflation device will make production move along a lot faster. Since this will take many hours to build, consider using a higher quality balloon that will hold the air longer. You can prep the ceiling a day or two before your party without worrying about your balloons deflating.


Kudos to her assistant Carla who figured out the logistics of how to install an epic balloon ceiling. Check out the full tutorial here.
