Balloons scream party! Balloons come in all colors and prints so they can perfectly match your party’s theme. You hang balloons on the mailbox to tell out of town guests where the party is at. You add balloons to centerpieces to bring height to the tabletops.  You create fun arches with balloons when walking through a doorway.  Now you can create a fun wall of balloons to use as a backdrop for your next party using golf tees!

Tara from Spot of Tea Designs styled and photographed this backyard backdrop. While the weather is warmer take your party outside and set up the perfect photo op spot.
