  2. Wedding Balloons Ideas 2019

    Wedding Balloons Ideas 2019

    Here at Party Glitters in Suffolk County we have a few tips on how to decorate your wedding.
    Balloons are a festive and affordable way to decorate your wedding reception. Although you may not think of balloons as sophisticated décor, they can be made into stunning displays for modern wedding receptions.

    Wedding Balloon Arches
    Guests can enter the reception site through a simple wedding arch made with balloons. Arches can also frame cake and dessert tables as well as the head table.
    For couples who want a traditional arch, you can also dress it up a little. Consider having the arch reflect your overriding theme, like a rainbow colored arch or grapevine and ivy crawling up an arch. Add large floral arrangements to the end of each side of the arch. This adds a touch of elegance to the arch. You can also have large balloons displays along the reception entrance aisle.

    Head Table Arch
    The head table can be highlighted with a balloon arch. Have one made in your wedding colors and added as a backdrop over the bridal party. Add hanging balloons to help create the scene and large pedestal arrangements at each end.

    Table Decorating With Balloons
    Balloons add interest and appeal for table decorations.

    Centerpieces
    Incorporate balloons into your reception centerpiece. The height adds visual interest, drawing the eye upwards, and you make the most out of reception spaces with high ceilings.

    Head Table Backdrop
    The head table is often a focal point for the reception. Make it one to remember by creating swags behind the table and along the front of the table. Large shapes like double hearts can be hung behind the couple. Add large balloon trees, topiaries or columns to the ends of the head table. Lights strung near or with the balloons can look stunning in soft lighting.

    Cake Table
    Create a unique cake table look by doing it with balloons. Small Mylar or latex balloons can be fashioned into a cake topper. Set up bride and groom figures made with balloons next to the cake. Hang a balloon swag made of an accent color on top of a tablecloth in the main wedding color.

    Balloon Ceiling Decorations
    Balloons are often hung from the ceiling at wedding receptions. This utilizes a large space and helps fully decorate the area.

    Above the Bridal Party and Guests
    Put colorful balloons above the bridal party or space them across the entire reception areas. Balloons can be filled with helium and allowed to float as they cover the space or you can create clusters.

    Balloon Drop Over Dance Floor
    Hang balloons above the dance floor using netting. At a designated time, have them "popped" or released and they will fall down upon guests. This is a fun twist to your reception decorations.

    Additional Balloon Decoration Ideas
    Plenty of spaces in the reception area can be accented with balloon decorations. Don't feel like you're limited to the entrance, ceiling, and tables.

    Wall Display
    A wall display creates a nice backdrop for photos and is an interesting alternative to traditional fabric backdrops. Hang up words and phrases like "I Do", "Mr. & Mrs.", or even your initials in a monogram formation. Use your colors and theme to tie the design into your wedding.

    We hope that you will find this tips helpful. For all your balloons and party supply needs head to our stores in Brooklyn, Queens and Suffolk County, Long Island.

    Independence Day 2019 | 4th of July Party Ideas
     

    Independence Day is fast approaching and we at Party Glitters in Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island have come up with a few ides for your 4th of July bash. We have a great variety of party supplies to make your celebration truly unforgeable. In our stores you will find everything you need from 4th of July decorations to American flags and patriotic themed tableware. But let's start with the list to make your Independence Day celebration in 2019 a blast.

    Tasty treats

    What 4th of July celebration would be complete without treats? A cookie or donut eat-off is sure to leave a smile on your guests. First you string up these tasty treats on a stick or tree branch so that they are four or five feet from the ground. On the count of three everyone tries to eat their treat without using their hands and without letting the treat drop to the ground. To add even more difficulty, you can have your contestants blindfolded. You can always make some chocolate treats at home, head to our stores in New York for a great selection of cooking and baking party supplies. Bubble gum blowing contests are also fun. Use red, white and blue gum balls to see who can blow the most or the biggest bubbles in a certain period of time. Blow a bubble and then add a new piece of gum to your mouth. See who can chew and blow bubbles with the most pieces of gum.

    Theme

    Capture the Flag is a classic school yard game that can easily be transformed into capture the American flag and played in your front or backyard. The rules are the same, but the flag is an actual American flag. At our stores in New York City and Long Island, you will find a large selection of American themed party supplies. American themed relay races also incorporate Patriotic themed props such as flags, balloons, hula hoops, Frisbees, etc. Props and party favors are always fun ways to incorporate the 4th of July theme. Just be sure to remind guests of the proper respect to show American flags, even if they are miniature versions.

    Fun for any age

    One of the greatest challenges of putting together party games that everyone will enjoy is that people of different ages will want to do different things. Some suggestions for how you can please many different people include having sidewalk chalk for younger kids, races and competitions for older kids and participating adults, and word puzzles for the older, shy, or less active guests. You do not have to have everyone participate in every game that you think of. Some parents will be happier watching their kids have fun and some kids would rather just take in the sights and sounds of the day. Leave your options open and just make sure that everyone can do something fun if they want to. Our stores in Brooklyn and Queens are filled with different party supply options to make your Independence Day celebration truly great.

     Water games

    July is the perfect time of year for water related play. You can incorporate the 4th of July theme by using red, white and blue balloons in a water balloon toss. The water balloon toss is relatively simple. All you do is split your group into two teams and place them in equal parallel lines facing each other. The person that you are directly across from is your partner. Give each person in one of the rows a water balloon. Starting just a few feet apart all the people on the one side of the line will throw their balloon to their partner on the other side. If the balloon is dropped, that team is eliminated. If the balloon is caught, then each member takes a step back and tosses the balloon again. The game goes on until only one team remains.

    We hope you will find these ideas helpful when planning your Independence Day celebration. For all your party supplies and decorations visit our stores in Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island.

Our location on Long Island features a large collection of tableware supplies.

  10. St. Patrick's Day 2019

    St. Patrick's  Day 2019

    St. Patrick's Day 2019 is fast approaching, here at Party Glitters locations in Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island we came up with a few innovative and creative party ideas for celebrants like you. Check it out and have a blast on that special occasion

    If you plan to host a St. Patrick’s Day party to celebrate, make sure you outfit your walls, doors, tables, and ceiling with lots of St. Patrick Day decorations. For all St. Patrick’s Day 2019 party supplies visit our locations in NYC and Long Island.

    Here are a few decorating tips to help make your party space look fun and festive.

    Think Green: The staple color of St. Patrick’s Day is green. Incorporate this color into all aspects of your decorations to transform your party into an Irish celebration. A simple and easy way to do this is to buy green balloons in a few different shades (you can also mix in orange and white). Bundle the balloons together to create bouquets using green ribbon. Place the green balloon bouquets around your party—tie them to chairs, tables, and anything else you can find!

    Shamrock Idea #1: St. Patty’s Day is all about the luck of the Irish. To play off this idea, use shamrock decorations throughout your party space to add an Irish touch. One creative way to do this is to make shamrock coasters. Use green construction paper to cut out shamrocks large enough for a cup to fit on. Once you’ve cut out your shamrocks, laminate them to make them sturdy and waterproof. Place the shamrock coasters on tabletops throughout the party for your guests to use.

    Shamrock Idea #2: Another creative way to tie shamrocks into your decorations is to make shamrock nametags. To do this, cut shamrock shapes out of green construction paper and print the names of your guests on each one. Next, laminate each shamrock to make it durable. Finally, glue a pin on the back of each nametag so your guests can pin it to their shirt to wear during the party. This idea is particular great if you are hosting a large party to make it easier for everyone to learn each other’s names.

    Centerpiece Idea #1: An essential part of any party is the table décor. For St. Patrick’s Day, try to incorporate Irish inspired decorations and centerpieces to keep with the party theme. Incorporate iconic items such as shamrocks, leprechauns, and pots of gold into your table centerpieces. For example, put together a green bouquets of flowers such as green carnations, ferns, and zinnias. Cut out shamrocks and glue them to dowels that you spray-paint green, then stick them into your flower arrangement.

    Centerpiece Idea #2: Another personal touch that you can add to your table is to make your own “pots of gold”. To do this, buy or make black bowls to act as the pots. For the gold, fill your pots with gold chocolate coins. These gold chocolate coins can be found at most party supply stores or grocery store. Encourage your guests to take home any leftover chocolate coins as a party treat at the end of your St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

    We hope you found our ideas helpful. And don’t forget that for all party supplies, balloons and decorations you can visit any of our locations in Queens, Brooklyn and Long Island.
