10 Graduation Balloon Garland Ideas
Graduation season is fast approaching, and now is the time to design your party theme for your happy graduate. Some of the best party décor includes balloon garlands.
These are garlands that can be hung around doors or hung on the wall as a picture backdrop or a gift table or food table backdrop. They are often made with about 100 balloons of varying sizes to achieve a length of roughly 15 feet.
The garland will last for about a week, so this gives you time to create it or purchase it a few days prior to the big party. If you use latex balloons, they can be composted after the party as they are biodegradable. Simply use a pin to puncture them and release the air prior to composting.
Below are a few ideas you can use for your graduation balloon garland.
