And then the balloons drop….

An exciting thing that happens at New Years is the countdown.  Following the screaming of 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 are the horns, bells, sirens, hugging, kissing and many times balloons fall magically from overhead.  This adds so much fun to the closing of one year and ringing in of the next, and your party can easily have this added magical burst of fun too.  Balloon drops aren’t just for large convention center settings!

Clear Plastic Balloon Drop

McCulloch’s has a variety of balloon drop sizes.  If you’ve never seen one or used one before, they are pretty straight forward and easy to do.  All you need is a drop, a bunch of air inflated balloons, and some string or fishing line to rig them up.  All that’s needed then is someone to pull the cord when the clock strokes midnight!

There are basically two types of balloon drops: plastic bags and net bags.  At McCulloch’s we carry both and in various sizes.  Take a look at our options:

  1. 3′ x 6′ plastic bag with a capacity of (100) 7″ balloons
  2. 7′ x 4′ nylon net bag with a capacity of (100) 9″ balloons
  3. 4′ x 14′ nylon net bag with a capacity of (200) 9″ balloons
  4. 7′ x 14′ nylon net bag with a capacity of (500) 9″ balloons
  5. 6′ x 24′ nylon net bag with a capacity of (1000) 9″ balloons

With those size options you have a lot of flexibility for your balloon drops.  You may find it better for your space to do two smaller nets instead of one large one.  Whatever your space, we can help with your balloon drops!

At McCulloch’s we have a fully stocked balloon center with professional balloon artists, and can prepare your balloon drops for you if you don’t want to do the inflating and stuffing.  We can even come to your venue and rig them into place for an additional fee so that you don’t have to!

We would like to pass on a few tips however if you are doing your own balloon drop.  These are a few little tricks we have learned over the years and they will ensure an easy preparation and execution on New Years Eve.

  1. UNDER inflate your balloons!  Under inflating your balloons basically make them more squishy and pliable without the risk of popping.  This will allow you to put MORE balloons in your bag or net.  A good rule of thumb is to inflate them 2-3 inches smaller than your balloon capacity.
  2. If using a plastic drop bag, spray the inside with a good coating of static guard before stuffing with balloons.  Latex by nature creates static, and this step will help to ensure you don’t have any balloons clinging to the bag at the drop of midnight!  There’s nothing worse than standing on the floor and looking up to see a third of your balloons still up at the ceiling.
  3. If using a mesh net, make sure you are stuffing the drop with the balloon stems facing the inside of the drop.  This just takes a few extra seconds of time but again will ensure that all of your balloons fall out of the drop.  If your balloon necks are facing out rather than in, they can get stuck in the mesh and subsequently you again are left with balloons hanging onto the drop rather than on your guests’ heads!

Again, if you are needing a balloon drop this year, McCulloch’s has you covered.  We can set you up with all of the supplies, or we can prepare one for you.  Give us a call and we will be happy to quote your job and help out with your New Years party this year!  You can also go to our online catalogue and order your supplies at and hit the online catalogue link.

We’ll touch on some of those decorations today, namely our banners.  Banners are a quick and easy way to decorate your area.  Better yet they make for an easy clean-up afterwards.  Just pick out where you want to hang them, grab a few thumb tacks and voila!  You are done!
