MAKE IT / 54

our white studio is such a great blank canvas. we were having an office party and wanted something super simple but impactful for the decorations. so why not fill the entire ceiling with colorful balloons? to add to the beauty, jesi added some pretty metallic brush strokes to random balloons, some gold and some copper. the studio felt like a dream and it was the perfect touch for the party.

all you need is some metallic paint & a brush, balloons, and a helium tank. loosely add paint strokes to the bottom of the balloon after they are blown up. we got our balloons here, they have such beautiful colors.

then we just tied them to a chair and let them dry before releasing them up with the rest.

a funny fact: you may notice i am wearing headphones below. ha. while i truly love balloons, i am SO afraid of them popping. so for this shoot we blasted loud music and i wore headphones for any casualties.

facing balloon fears…

this project came out so pretty! such a great way to add impact for not a lot of money.
