A balloon arch is a great addition to any celebration. From baby showers to birthday parties, a balloon arch can help create the perfect backdrop for photos and a memorable day.
To create a balloon arch, start with a frame and fill your birthday balloons. Then, attach them using a balloon strip with holes to create the design of your choice.
