Being able to arrange your balloon bouquets so that they look professional is going to make a big difference in the quality of your balloon decor. Whether you are a novice or seasoned veteran balloon decorator the tiered balloon bouquet is an essential part of balloon decorating.
To make a tiered balloon bouquet, take all the balloons in one tier place them in one hand and pull all of their strings until the balloons are together. You will do this with each tier or level of balloons. Next, you want to line up each of the tiers or levels so that they just kiss the previous tier. Add the rest of your tiers the same way and now you have a tiered balloon bouquet.
What Is A Balloon Tier?
A balloon tier is a gathering of balloons used in a balloon bouquet. Each balloon tier makes up a different tier or level of a balloon bouquet. When several balloon tiers are put together they make a balloon bouquet.
What Is A Tiered Balloon Bouquet?
A tiered balloon bouquet is a balloon bouquet with different tiers or levels of balloons. Each level is typically made up of three to five balloons. A tiered balloon bouquet can have just a few tiers or a tiered balloon bouquet can have several different tiers.
How Many Balloons In A Tiered Balloon Bouquet?
As a general rule, the number of balloons in a tiered bouquet is going to be between 6 and 15 balloons. The number of balloons in a tier and the number of tiers in your bouquet will determine how many balloons you will need for your specific tiered balloon bouquet. For example: if you have 3 balloons in each tier and you have 2 tiers then you would have 6 balloons in your bouquet. But if you have 5 ball0oons in each tier and you have 3 tiers then you would have 15 balloons in each bouquet.
Steps To Making A Tiered Balloon Bouquet
Inflate, Size, Gather Balloons
First, determine how many balloons you are going to need for your tiered or layered balloon bouquet. Next, blow up all of your balloons to the correct size.

Gather all the balloons in your top tier, placing them in one hand, and gently pull all of their strings until the balloons are pulled together at the top of your fist.
Add Clip(s) To Hold In Place
Place a clip on the first tier ribbons to hold the balloons in place. Next, you will follow step one for the remainder of the tiers or levels until all the balloons in each tier are gathered in the same way. Placing a clip to hold each tier of ribbons together.
Arrange The Tieres Together In A Bouquet
Once all of your tiers or levels are gathered it is time to put the bouquet together. Remove the clip holding the top tier together, being careful not to let the balloons go or let them separate. Place this top tier in one hand. Next, remove the clip holding the second tier together, again being careful not to let the balloons go or let them separate. Place this second tier in the other hand. Hold the top tier still while bringing the second tier from below until it just barely kisses the bottom of the previous tier.
Continue adding tiers in the same manner until all tiers are kissing.

I get asked a lot, can I make a balloon bouquet without helium? The best way to make a tiered balloon bouquet without helium is to use a cup and stick to hold your balloons upright.

A balloon cup and stick is a plastic cup that a balloon sits in and then the cup is attached to a plastic stick. The plastic stick holds the balloon up so no helium is needed.
