How To Buy The Best Balloon Arch Kit

Best Balloon Arch Kits

Looking to buy the best balloon arch kit? Check out our guide below and you’ll be well-placed to select the right one for you.

A balloon arch may provide the impression of substance without putting forth a lot of effort.
A balloon arch could be the answer if you’re seeking for a simple method to add flair to any event.
While semi-circular arches are the most common, helium- or air-filled arches can be shaped into a variety of shapes and are only limited by your imagination.

When is it okay to use a balloon arch as a decoration?
Balloon arches can be utilised to give character and excitement to formal gatherings such as graduation parties, proms, and other formal events, as well as sporting events and festivals.
These brilliantly coloured, quirky decorations are simple to hang and create a festive ambiance without breaking the bank.

Some balloon arch kits come with a variety of coloured balloons.
Others only include the “skeleton” of the arch, leaving you to select the balloons independently.
To help you make your event as colourful and lively as possible, our buying guide will walk you through the many varieties of balloon arches and their features.

Placement is a crucial aspect.

Different anchoring techniques for a balloon arch are required for indoor and outdoor occasions; this is where you should start your search.

Inside: Whether you’re using air-filled or helium-filled balloons, you won’t need much anchoring to keep a balloon arch in place.
This enables you to create an organic arch, a climbing arch akin to a vine, or lengthy wavy lines that undulate across the wall or ceiling.
Table clamps or weighted plastic bases can be used to secure indoor arches.

Outside: If you build a balloon arch outside, the wind may try to rip it apart and spread the balloons to the four corners of the globe.
For outdoor use, you’ll need a strong, stable, and long-lasting arch kit that can handle the wind’s frequent tugging.
It should also be able to endure changes in wind direction and be well attached to the table using strong nylon yarn.
You’ll need to anchor them with weights if they’re free-standing (see below).

Strips or Stands

Balloon arches are supported by a rod that can be clamped to a table or supported by weighted floor stands.
If you’re filling all of your balloons with helium, you may need to add some more weight to the supports.

If your kit includes strips, they must be anchored to a weight or nailed or adhered to a wall with strong glue.
Alternatively, helium-filled balloons can be used to elevate the arch into a more natural curved shape.
However, you’ll need weights that are heavy enough to keep your arch from escaping.

Features To check


The majority of balloon arch kits are designed for tables that are six to six-and-a-half feet long.
To accommodate shorter tables, the rods for the kits come in short portions.
The long rods can be twisted to form an arch once they’ve been assembled.
The taller the arch can be, the longer the completed rod is.
If you want a tall enough arch to walk through, you might need to buy two sets.

Quantity of Balloons

The following question is closely related to the length of the rod on your arch.
How many balloons would your arch require?
You’ll need to do some math to find out how many balloons your arch requires, so use the formula below.

W (inches) Equals the diameter of your balloons

The amount of balloons on each clip is equal to four (top, bottom, and sides)

L is the length in inches of your arch rod.

Number of balloons = (L W) x 4

If you’re using 10-inch balloons and your arch’s rod is 12 feet long (144 inches), your equation would be as follows:

(144 10) = 14.4, and 14.4 x 4 = 57.6 balloons, rounded up to 58.


The most frequent materials used on the rods for balloon arches are PVC and fibreglass, which can bend and flex as needed.
The clamps are commonly made of plastic or steel, while the balloons are latex.


Do not attempt to bend the short rods individually.
Bend the arch after assembling the rods to the desired length.
This decreases the stress on the rods, lowering the risk of damage or snapping.

Because the balloon clips move over the rod, you must have all of the balloons on the rod before attaching it to the stands or table clamps.

The arch strip balloon clips can be used before or after the strip is installed.


What is the lifespan of helium-filled balloons?

A. Helium balloons have a relatively short lifespan of 12 to 24 hours.
Keep this in mind if you’re putting together your balloon arch ahead of time so your balloons don’t go droopy while the celebration is just getting started.
Air-filled balloons have been known to last for several days at a time, sometimes even a week.

Q. How long does a balloon arch take to set up?

A. Setting up an arch for the first time will most likely take two to three hours.
You can set up your arch faster if you have extra helping hands.
Keep in mind that inflating the balloons can be the most time-consuming component of the process.
