Bubbly Balloon Arch with Bar Cart Idea

Sidle up to the bar cart for a toast!

Bubble balloon arch AND a bar cart? We’re in! To make it Pinterest-worthy, cut several long pieces of our plastic balloon strip (the strip has nifty holes to hold your balloons). You can easily create a masterpiece using gold, silver, white and clear balloons in mini 5” and 9” sizes (get 1 pack of each). Use a small hand-pump, or upgrade to an electric pump if you want to also fill the floor with balloon fun. Tape the strip to the wall or hang from plastic wall hooks. A super-fun DIY idea and you can use any colors you wish.
