Topiaries

Topiaries are an easy way to create a remarkable centerpiece. You can make them as ornate or simple as you wish. You can change color, theme, style to match whatever event you want. Most importantly, they are relatively inexpensive and not hugely time consuming. Using a plastic floral base, ribbons and balloons, you can make one in about 20 minutes.

Once you practice a few times, with materials that are easily taken apart and rebuilt, so no waste or extra costs, you can start changing up how you make them.

They used a 3ft balloon on top here and wide ribbon tied beneath it. The balloon is weighted and Q60 balloons, in the size you choose are curled through.

Height is added here, just to give a different look. These would mostly like be helium inflated to keep them up better. Otherwise you’d run the risk of them toppling over.

This I love, a colorful twist on the original, using balloons that are not inflated, building a base and letting different color tissue paper pop out at the bottom.

Here are a few variations to try or give you ideas to try and come up with your own.

Q60 balloons, different materials for stems, box “present” bases, double bubble balloons, shaped balloons, wrapped weights and light strand with battery packs are used in the above. I hope you love these as much as I do. Have fun creating!!!
