3 Ways to Use the Microfoil® Garland Balloon

The retail ready, versatile, easy-to-use, and reusable two-pack garland features a uniquely shaped design that reverses to a solid coordinating colour. Easily refillable, this garland can be used again and again to add SWAG to every party! Available in four versions, two for Baby and two for Birthday, they are easy to connect with a latex daisy to create one long swag, or try one of these options! 

#1 Base 

Make a circle from one Garland Balloon to create a base for an 18" Microfoil or 22" Bubble Balloon, and you've got a quick delivery or table decor. 

#2 Marquee Topper

Perfect to perch atop a balloon marquee! Create a baby out of the "onesie" balloon using a 5" latex face for an extra special touch.

#3 Separate Elements

Cam & Eve show you how to create individual balloons from the Garland Balloon in this Happy Hour episode. Use them to create cute candy cup toppers or add them as extra elements to any design.
