2020 Vision: Creating Dazzling New Year's Eve Balloon Effects

Before we know it, a new decade will be upon us. On December 31, people around the world will be ready to usher in the new roarin’ 20s, Gatsby style! What better way to celebrate a fresh, new, and exciting decade than with over-the-top balloon decorations? Balloon drops and confetti blasts have become a staple for New Year’s Eve celebrations. Fortunately, balloon equipment has come a long way and creating professional décor and dramatic installations is easier than ever. Let’s take a look at a few key elements that can add value to New Year’s Eve decorating jobs and boost the bottom line.



Let’s face it: most New Year’s Eve balloon jobs are going to include a balloon drop. Having the right equipment is crucial for producing a successful event. Look for an inflator with multiple nozzles, sizing capability, and the ability to work continuously for hours without overheating. Enter the Premium Twin Air Sizer® II. This balloon inflator is the ultimate workhorse machine, ready to help you create whatever balloon décor you can dream up. With all the bells and whistles offered on the market at this time, this machine is 25% faster, 30% quieter, and 10% lighter than the previous model, making it ideal for on-location installs. It also can run nearly 300 hours continuously without overheating. This is a game changer! Did we mention that it inflates non-round balloons as well? Imagine the design possibilities!


Balloon Drop Nets:


burton + BURTON carries a wide variety of balloon drop systems, ranging in size and holding anywhere from 500 to 2,000 balloons each, making it easy to find the perfect tool for your job.

Don’t forget to offer your customers special balloon upgrades like Chromejumbo Orbzand Satin Luxe shapes. These special touches add drama and value to the décor, making your design different than your competitor’s.




Exploding Balloons:


A game changer for over-the-top balloon effects, the Q-Boom system has the capability to synchronize multiple “pops” with the push of a button! No pyrotechnics or hot wires needed; simply attach the receiver to the balloon and rig with the attached flexible cable. The state-of-the-art wireless transmitter sends a signal to one or multiple receivers to pop the balloons for a coordinated celebration. The system also features secure frequencies to allow for staggered effects in one room, big or small. Imagine the “wow factor” you can create with flying confetti and surprising reveals! Save time and don’t forget to add pre-cut confetti to your order as well!

Custom Imprinted Balloons:


Send a clear message! Special events big and small will benefit from the magic of custom imprinted balloons. With the ability to print on both latex and foil balloons, the possibilities for personalization are endless, making it the ideal choice for showcasing event sponsors in a fun and colorful way.
