Have you ever experienced a balloon drop? It’s so cool and brings out the child in you as you run around stomping on balloons! Remember the Democratic Convention and their balloon drop? Remember how the candidates frolicked in the balloons? Well, hopefully you are going to a really fun place that has a balloon drop ordered for their New Years shindig!
There are several types of balloon drops out there. They all do the same; it just matters what they are filled with.
A Balloon Drop
These drops are filled with 11” balloons. When the drop opens, a ton of balloons come cascading down. This is the one you normally see. Some concerts have them as well, for the finale.
The Multi-Size Balloon Drop
This raises the notch a few steps! We put different shaped balloons into the drop and the fun really begins when it opens. All these different balloons rain down and the crowds go crazy hitting all these different balloons back and forth!
The Lit Drop
This is the first of the more luxurious drops, One fourth of the balloons are clear in this drop, and each clear balloon has an LED light inside. All night, the drop bag is up in the air and you can see all these twinkling balloons. When the bag opens and the balloons come down, these little lights come cascading down and it really looks beautiful! There are certain tricks of the trade needed here for it to be successful and not hurt anyone.
The BIG drop
This drop is only filled with very large balloons. The size of the balloon drop bag obviously dictates how many balloons will be in. This makes a total statement! There may not be a lot of balloons that drop, but they are HUGE and definitely create an impression. We have put up to 50 of these in a single drop so just imagine 50 huge balloons first coming down and then going back and forth among the crowds. This is for really large areas with even larger crowds!
The Luxury Drop
This is the most expensive, most luxurious and most time consuming drop. I am dying for someone to order this baby! It is filled with round mylar (foil) balloons that look like beach balls. It is STUNNING to look at while it is up above, and it is incredible to watch it open and come down. I have tried to sell it a few times. No such luck yet! It was featured on The Voice I think and it was just something else!
And I wanted to take the time right now to introduce my new clean up employee, Cally!
Happy New Year!
