Floral Design & Balloons

Coming up is Floral Design Day, and on the 28th February we will be celebrating everything fabulous, floral and foliage based with celebratory balloon designs!

Floral Design Day was created as a unique way to celebrate a special birthday of Carl Rittner, the founder of the Rittners School of Floral Design in Boston over 60 years ago. Mr. Rittner, a pioneer in floral art education, inspired the members of the Schools to celebrate floral design as an art form! Later, in 1995, Governor William F. Weld of Massachusetts, proclaimed this day as Floral Design Day!

From majestic, historic gardens to a bridal bouquet on that special day, floral designers have an eye for color, style and perspective. Floral design can complete a space, complementing existing structures and bringing brightness and colour to them.

But what about combining those florals with balloons? Here’s our top tips to incorporating flora into your balloon installations:

  • Choose complimenting tones and textures – Create an ombré, tonal or palette of colours by choosing balloons that bring out the florals, rather than overpower them.

  • Beware the texture – make sure there’s no thorns on those roses, we don’t want a surprise pop!

  • Use foliage for movement – Using greenery will add organic movement and texture to the balloons, and also look fantastic spilling out from any small gaps.

  • Look at the sizing – Small balloons look best paired with delicate florals, whilst jumbo balloons can carry off a more dramatic effect!
