Step 1: Prepare the Balloons

  1. If you have traditional balloons, use our small manual pump to blow them up.
  2. Tie the balloons to the sticks. For additional security, insert the ends tightly into the provided slots.
  3. To cover the sticks, use colorful trims from our extensive collection of assorted ribbons. Wrap ribbon around the entire length of the sticks.
  4. To secure the ribbon, use our hot glue gun.

Step 2: Attach the Balloons to the Baskets

There are lots of ways to keep the balloons in place. In our opinion, the easiest one is to:

  1. Cut a piece of styrofoam to fit the basket.
  2. Put it into the basket and make sure that it isn’t wobbly.
  3. Stick the balloon into it.

Step 3: Attach the Ribbons

In order to make the centerpiece more similar to a real hot-air balloon, use ribbons.

  1. Take several thin ribbons and tie them one by one to the balloon stick.
  2. Extend each ribbon up and over the balloon and secure it with our glue dots (don’t use a hot glue gun!).
  3. Repeat the process with all the ribbons.

Step 4: Add Flowers

Once everything is ready, finish things off by adding some flowers. Though the picture features roses and chrysanthemums, these are not the only options. Luckily, our online store offers plenty of blossoms to experiment with. You can go for roses, peonies, tulips, baby breath, and beyond! Whichever flowers you go for, do the following:

  1. Cut off excess stems for easy attachment.
  2. Like you did with the balloons, just stick the flowers in the foam. For a cohesive look, mix and match blossoms of different sizes. Our multi-sized peonies are the best option here.
  3. For a lush look, you can add some greenery.
  4. Keep adding more and more flowers until the foam is completely buried underneath.
