    As many of you would know I am a local, Melbourne event decorator who prominently works with balloons.

At the festival I was joined by 45 other balloon manipulators from around the world who we together inflated, knotted and wrapped 365,000 latex (party) balloons to construct 'The Largest Balloon Project' ever attempted. After seven days of constant inflating they created a unique Chinese palace and a brand new Guinness World Record.

    Part Two:
    PARTY BALLOONS:
    ENVIRONMENTALLY SPEAKING & ARRANGING BUNCHES


    Contrary to the unfortunately popular and the obviously misinformed opinion of far too many self opinionated armchair greenies the latex used to make the hundreds of millions ‘toy/party latex balloons’ used around the world every year really does grow on trees and really is a 100% naturally biodegradable product that should never be confused with plastic.

    PARTY BALLOONS: If You Take Your Balloons Seriously - You Can Have Lots of Fun.
