Nothing says “party more” like dozens of balloons in varying shapes and sizes. Plus, everyone loves them, and incorporating balloons into your photo booth backdrop is a new, unique way to spice up your party. If you want to make sure your party is on everyone’s social media feed, a balloon wall is a must. Here are just a few ways you can incorporate balloon trends into your photo booth.
Letter Balloon Walls
Use letter balloon walls to create a phrase for your backdrop. This could be anything from “Happy Birthday” to “Just Retired!” The possibilities are endless, especially if you go with a pun or a fun quote. Letter balloons come in many different sizes and colors. If you can’t find the color that best matches your party’s theme, you can always spray paint the balloons.
Rainbow Balloon Backdrop
Rainbow balloon backdrops will add a fun splash of color to any event. One look at this wall and your guests know they’ll be in for a good time. Creating this wall is simple, too. The only hard part is deciding how long you want to make the wall.
Balloons and Fringe Backdrop
This backdrop is fun and very easy to make. First, hang fringe near your photo set up. (Silver goes with almost everything!) Then, inflate the balloons, tie them off, and slip them through a balloon strip to keep them all together. Finally, hang the balloon strip at the top of the fringe for a fun photo op.
Color Block Wall
This is a perfect backdrop option if you’re looking for a certain aesthetic. You can pick two colors that go with your party’s theme, or simply your favorite colors. Just make sure to use two colors that work well together to create the color block effect. Hang a plain-colored sheet behind the balloons—white typically works the best—and guests are all set to capture memories.
Make the Backdrop Sparkle
Every party needs more sparkle. Combine iridescent and star-shaped balloons to make a backdrop that shines. You can use this theme for birthday parties, wedding receptions, or any other party.
Patterned Ombre Balloon Wall
Ombre patterns are very easy to pull off. First, pick out a shaped balloon, like a star or heart. If you’re not into the shaped balloons, you can always use normal round ones. Then pick a base color you want, and buy balloons that are lighter and darker to make a gradient with as many shades as you want. When you set up the wall, make sure to put the lighter colored balloons at the bottom and the darker ones at the top.
Birthday Party Backdrops
We’ve all seen the giant numbered balloons for birthday parties. A unique twist on this is to stencil out your child’s age, fill up balloons in varying sizes, and tape them into the stenciled number. This will create a fun look for your photo booth’s backdrop.
Balloons aren’t just for backdrops, though. Buying themed balloons for your guests to take photos with is sure to get them into the party spirit. Popsicle balloons are great for summer parties, and snowflake balloons are sure to match a Christmas party’s aesthetic. If you’re throwing a 21st birthday party, a balloon bottle of champagne—and maybe a real one as well—will do the trick.
