Balloon Arch Guide

Not all arches are the same. There are several factors we need to help create the best arch for your event. To help do that, we need a few questions answered.









1. Start Here

Use sections 2 - 6 below to help answer the following questions.

                    1. What do you want the arch for?                                                                               5. How big does it need to be?

                    2. Is it indoor or outdoor?                                                                                              6. What style arch is best?

                    3. How long do you need it to last?                                                                              7. What pattern works best?

                    4. Do you have a budget???                                                                                           8. What colors would you like?

          9. Would you like something unique or custom designed?


2. Determine the SIZE of the Arch

How to Calculate Arch Size

The cost of an arch is based on the size, which is measured in linear ft. When deciding on the size of your balloon arch, measure the height and width of the area where it will be displayed. Use the following calculations below to determine the approx. length (linear. ft.) of the arch. 

  • If the balloon arch is wider than it is tall: 

    H + W= Total Length

  •  If the balloon arch height and width are about the same: 

    1.5(H) + W= Total Length

  • If the balloon arch is taller than it is wide:

    2(H) + W= Total Length


Common Sizes

Standard. (8ft. x10ft.) | Deluxe. (10ft. x 15ft.)| Grand (15ft. x 20ft.)

Often time the placement of an arch can determine what size is needed. 

  • Free-standing

  • Double-door Archway

  • Over Table

  • Table Top


3. Pick a STYLE

5. Choose Colors
