Everything You Need To Know About Balloon Arches

If you’re an avid party planner or Pinterest user, you’re most likely familiar with balloon arches. Colorful and festive, these arches have recently been rising in popularity, and for a good reason! They’re completely customizable, very durable, and a fun addition to any celebration. Commonly used as entrances, backdrops, or photo areas, they’re a great addition to your event’s decor. Before ordering an arch for your next celebration, they’re a few things you need to know.

The Basics

Balloon arches can range anywhere from 10 to 50 feet in length depending on their purpose at the event. For example, a small arch could be used on a table while a large one could act as an entrance to the venue. There are several different styles of arches, but the most popular one is an organic arch, which consists of various sized balloons connected together. These arches have balloons ranging from 5 to 36 inches, which creates a natural-looking yet playful design. 


One of the greatest benefits of a balloon arch is your ability to customize it to fit your exact vision. The size of the arch, balloon finishes, and color choices are totally up to you. You also have the option of adding mylar balloons to your arch such as letters, numbers, or fun shapes to fit your specific event. 


Balloon arches are perfect for any type of celebration; graduations, weddings, birthdays, office parties, you name it! The extensive style choices allow you to match the vibe of your specific party, whether that’s sophisticated and classy, fun and playful, or anything in between. No matter the event, an arch will excite your guests, and it can even be used as a photobooth backdrop!

How long do they last?

The lifespan of a balloon arch is dependent on the environment it’s stored in. If stored properly, they can last several weeks. Your arch is likely to deflate faster if it’s outside, especially in high temperatures or humidity.

How much do they cost?

While arches are totally DIY-able, hiring a professional is a more carefree, secure option so you can focus on the other needs of your celebration. If you choose to hire someone, know that the prices vary greatly among companies. Typically, pricing is per foot, and prices per foot range from $10-$90. Most companies also offer extras such as mylar letters, numbers, and florals. A great benefit of hiring a professional for your arch is their extensive inventory of balloon colors and sizes to match your exact vision without the stress of making it yourself.
