Pop Drops!

Take the traditional Gumball balloon filled with your party colours, add confetti and other treats, and turn it upside down to hang it from the ceiling! The more the merrier! Decorate a stick with a pointed end to coordinate with the balloons and you have a POPPING good time ahead.

The Versatile Column

In the world of balloons, columns are defined as Classic Balloon decor and come in many shapes and sizes, and they are usually used as a structure that is supported by a base and an upright pole. They could also be self-supporting when using 646Q or QuickLink Balloons.
