What people are saying...

"It was great working with you. Feedback from the clients was excellent and the balloons were fab! We will definitely be using you again".

Balloon arches and columns are very eye catching and a fantastic way to draw attention – whether it’s to promote a new store or open day or to create a focal point at a special event. They are often used in a retail environment but also very popular for decorating party or wedding venues.

All of our balloon arches and columns are completely bespoke. We can create giant arches of air-filled balloons or more subtle, smaller arches using helium-filled balloons. Please contact us for more information or take a look at our gallery to see more images of balloon arches that we’ve created.

Types of arches and columns



Traditional air-filled arches 

These arches use air-filled balloons, often uniform in size, which are built around a frame. Our arch frames come in the following sizes:

  • 2.3m (W) x 1.75m (H)
  • 3m (W) x 2.5m (H)
  • 5m (W) x 2.5m (H)
  • 7m (W) x 3.5m (H)

There is some flexibility to adjust the height/width of the arches. We can also create custom built frames. The frames are treated as a hire item, which means that we ask for a security deposit at the time of booking, which is fully refunded on safe collection (or return) of the frame.

Suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Please note: whilst all the frames can be used outdoors, only the two larger frames are completely weather resistant; they are freestanding and won't be blown over by the wind. The two smaller arches need to be secured to something to prevent them from blowing over. This isn't usually an issue if the arch is being positioned outside an entrance, for example, where there are usually some fixing points to secure the arch to.

Organic air-filled arches and columns

This style of balloon decor is becoming increasingly popular and you can see why. Arches, columns and garland are created using different sizes and types of balloons. Other materials are often included in the design - for example; foliage, flowers or pom poms . Frames are not always required for these designs but, if used, the frames would be treated as a hire item (as detailed above). Beautiful garland can be used to decorate tables, focal points, stairways and entrances. See our page on organic balloon decor for more information.

Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Helium-filled arches

Lines of helium-filled balloons are used to create these simple arches. Ideal for decorating smaller venues, although they can be made to any size. You can choose the type of balloons that the arch is made with, such as latex or foil balloons (or a mixture of both).

Recommended for indoor use only.

Helium-filled link arches

These latex balloons are linked together to form a different style of arch, with miniature balloons in between to add colour and interest. A popular choice for children's birthday parties but suitable for any event, including weddings and corporate events. The arches can be put together in different ways and made to size, creating something that is perfect for your individual event.

Recommended for indoor use only.

Balloon columns

Columns created using air-filled balloons built around a frame. Available in a variety of sizes; the most popular height being around 6ft. You can also choose to have a balloon on top of the column, if required.

We offer frames in different shapes too, which are used to create columns - for example, a straight column with either a heart shape or circle shape on top. Please see our gallery for ideas and images of our work. 

The frames are treated as a hire item, which means that we ask for a security deposit at the time of booking, which is fully refunded on safe collection (or return) of the frame.
