Create a balloon bouquet of 2 Balloon Fish and 5 - 16" solid-color
latex balloons. Make your bouquet stand out by using spray decorated
balloons, and clear balloons filled with confetti.
If you are going to just
hang the fish down from the ceiling, you will not need
to use helium or balloon weights.
For the body, use 16" Spray Decorated balloons in Assorted Sprays
designs to add texture, interest, and fun.
Balloon Fish capture attention by themselves or grouped with other

Hi Float Liquid
balloon flight extender.
For the body, use 16" Spray
Decorated balloons in Assorted Sprays designs to add texture,
interest, and fun.
It is important that all the balloons
are blown up to the same size. An easy way to size the balloons
is to make a template. Cut a round hole in a piece of poster
foam board or a box the size you want the balloons to be, and
when inflating pass the balloon through the hole.
