Have you ever seen a piece of decor that resembles a baby block, a white box with clear sides and letters on each side? That is what is known as a balloon box.
A balloon box (aka balloon block) is a box filled with balloons. Sometimes a balloon box has clear sides and you can put letters on the sides like a block. Sometimes balloon blocks don’t have letters on the sides. Either way, they are a fantastic way to dress up an event.
How To Use Balloon Blocks
Balloon blocks can be used alone or with other balloon decorations to create a beautiful atmosphere. The balloon blocks can be stacked vertically or you can set them out horizontally depending on the effect you are wanting to achieve.
Balloon boxes can spell out the name of a person or they can simply say, baby for a baby shower. The letters on a balloon block can also spell out a message or a number, the possibilities are endless.
Different Types Of Balloon Boxes
There are many different types of balloon boxes, from ones you can buy to ones you can make. Some balloon boxes are reusable, while others are not. Some balloon boxes are made out of paper and some are stiff and made out of wood or plastic.
Buy Balloon Box
You can purchase flat balloon blocks; all you have to do is fold them together and fill them with balloons. This can be a great option when you are short on time. Most balloon boxes come with several different letters so you can customize your specific boxes to meet your needs.
