Balloon arches are a cheap and easy decoration idea that every mom-to-be will love. Follow these instructions on how to create a balloon arch so you can give your mother a Mother’s Day present she’ll never forget. 

  1. Make a balloon Color Combination that you want the balloon arch to be in. 
  2. Cut the strip to the desired length of your balloon arch or garland. Measure it on the wall where you want the garland to be placed.
  3. Choose the size of the balloons that you want to use for the balloon arch.
  4. Take your first inflated balloon, pinch its lip together and pull the knot through the first hole. The holes are large enough to let you pull the knot through, but small enough to keep the balloon in place. 
  5. It’s time to place your balloon arch that you have made and place it on the wall. For more, you can also add a banner for Mother's day. 

2. Arrange a Wall Balloon Heart

Be playful, and a little sentimental! If you’re aiming for a mom-to-be decoration idea at home or just for your mom, latex balloons or heart shaped balloons are perfect! They come in various sizes, and can be arranged in an interesting heart shape or as individual pink and purple balloons.
