Go Big For Graduation



Go Big for Graduation

Nothing says "congrats!" like a gigantic balloon display


This is the year your graduate has been waiting for, and there are so many reasons to celebrate this accomplishment in a big way. No matter what kind of event you’re planning for graduation – outdoor, intimate gathering, or drive by – every celebration is more festive with a full complement of “statement” balloons for the special graduate. 


Anagram has so many balloon options to choose from, with nearly 350 designs, colors and formats. There’s everything from traditional black-and-gold designs to contemporary character-themed lines. It’s easy to find plenty of choices that will complement your décor and the graduate’s school colors, including balloon “towers” and oversize graduation-year numbers. From the moment guests are greeted by full-size entryway displays, to the many photo opps they’ll want with festive balloons carrying heartfelt statements like “And so the adventure begins” and “On to the next Chapter,” balloon décor will set the stage for an epic celebration. 


Now is the perfect time to start making plans a Class of ‘21 graduation party. Don’t delay in getting your order in for balloons that will add plenty of shimmer and shine to party décor. After that’s handled, we’ve got suggestions to help you keep track of all the planning details with this downloadable party checklist. If you’re wondering when to send invitations, create a party music playlist, review RSVPs, order catered food and more, we’ll help you figure out what to do when -- from months in advance, right up to the big day of the event itself.


You might be surprised to learn that many high-impact balloon displays don’t require any helium at all. Foil balloons also can be filled with air and used to create gorgeous garlands, entryway arches, balloon bouquets, balloons-on-a-stick, table-sized centerpieces or full-size, high-impact wall displays. 


Being air-filled means that balloons will be easier to handle and can be affixed more precisely with adhesive. If you’d like, use a handheld balloon air pump or electric balloon air inflator to fill balloons more quickly. And we always recommend using Joe’s Sticky Stuff to attach balloons easily without damaging paint. It’s also good to know that foil balloons are reusable – just deflate and store them flat when the party is over. 


If a “wow” balloon display seems a little daunting this year, no worries. You’ve got plenty on your party-planning plate already, and a professional balloon decorator will be happy to help you get this done. You’ll be able to enjoy professionally designed, customized balloon displays that guests will love and that will be the centerpiece of so many social media posts.

Once your balloon décor is all in place, please be sure to tag @anagramballoons to show us how your 2021 graduate enjoyed this perfectly decorated milestone celebration. We can’t wait to see all the ways you got creative – and be sure to pass along our congratulations to your graduate!
