  • Balloon Tails: Tie ribbons to the ends of helium-filled balloons to create elegant balloon tails! Or just tie a bow at the bottom of the balloon onto the string. Cute and trendy. Make sure to choose ribbons that match your color scheme!

  • Balloon Banners: Create a stunning balloon banner by stringing balloons together with ribbon. Spell out "Happy New Year" on the balloons for a cute photo opt!

3. Table Settings:
