DIY: Balloon Wedding Décor

New Jersey Bride—DIY: Balloon decorations
If you’re a do-it-yourselfer craving a show-stopping, jaw-dropping decoration for your wedding ceremony or reception, you’ll love this. It was on my must-do list when I got married last year—unfortunately, I just didn’t have the time to make it happen. But, if you can grab a bunch of balloons, some chicken wire, tape and a glue gun…plus a handful of helpers…this brightly colored balloon arch will be the talk of your event.
This flight of fancy is the creation of Brittany Watson Jepsen at The House That Lars Built. Check out the fun photo-shoot images of her collaboration with BHLDN here, where you’ll find pretty party dresses, whimsy dessert buffets, over-the-top cakes and flowers, plus the most gorgeous balloon arch I’ve ever seen.

If you fall in love with this idea, Brittany’s balloon arch tutorial will make it easy to pull off. Just be sure to leave yourself plenty of time to complete this ambitious DIY project. In fact, it’s better if your most creative friends make it happen while you’re busy handling all the other final details of your wedding.

Imagine being married outdoors under this arch. Or install it inside at your reception, either as a backdrop for your musicians or to complement your dessert table. It’s the perfect eye candy for your photographs.
You can find lots of other DIY ideas on Brittany’s site—she’s designed for Jonathan Adler, Celerie Kemble and Tiffany, and her out-of-box ideas can take your wedding day to lofty new heights.
