All About Custom DIY Balloon Garland Kits: Choosing Colors to Match Your Party Theme Perfectly

Have you ever planned a party and had a clear and specific vision for your party decorations? You ordered your party invitations and birthday cake first and scoured the internet for a pre-packed balloon garland kit that would match your party invitations and cake, but none ticked the boxes.

Perhaps your little one wanted a jungle safari party, and the balloon garland kits you found needed to be greener or contained no giant balloons. Or you wanted a balloon arch and garland kit with retro shades of blue and green balloons (think storm blue and retro sage green colors) in a specific mix, but the only available kits were in a combination of royal blue and pastel green. Nice, but just different from what you wanted, right?


If any of this describes your current situation, a fully customizable luxury, professional, organic, custom DIY balloon arch kit is just what you need!

I've been there myself and can tell you from my experience that searching for the perfect pre-packed balloon garland kit can be frustrating. So, when I discovered custom DIY balloon garland kits, I felt so much joy and relief. A la carte balloon kits (as I like to call them) are a thing! Did you know this? And in 2023, they are going to become even more popular.

While I still love and use pre-packed balloon garland kits for my parties, I love the freedom that custom balloon garland kits give me, and I have found that I enjoy planning my kids' parties so much more when I incorporate custom balloon garlands.


For my daughter's 1st birthday, I found the cutest party invitations for her "Wild One" themed party on Etsy. The invitations were white with some sage green leaves and touches of blue slate, gold, and light pink. It took me such a long time to find the perfect invitations that fit her party theme and were girly too!

Using a custom balloon garland kit, I built a DIY balloon garland kit containing those exact colors. Best of all, I could specify that I wanted lots of sage, less white, slate, and pink, and with a splash of gold. Genius, right? When I was done, the balloon garland looked almost professionally done - if I may say so myself :)


If you've never ordered a custom balloon garland kit before, think of it like ordering pick-n-mix candy at the candy shop. It's easy to order a custom DIY balloon garland kit. Below are the steps:


How to Order a Custom DIY Balloon Garland Kit in Four Steps

  1. Choose the length of your balloon garland. If you are unsure of the length you need, don’t worry. Here’s an infographic to help you decide:

  1. Choose your colors. There are so many available colors to choose from these days. 
  2. Include any additional notes. For example, for my daughter's first birthday, my notes said, "lots of sage, less white, slate, and pink, and with a splash of gold."
  3. Add to cart and checkout.


Alternatively, if you do not want to build your kit yourself, you may send your inspiration picture to the shop, and they'll work with you to pick the most suitable colors and suggest color splits that work for you.
