Work Out How Many Balloons You Need For Your Venue Ceiling

April 30, 2017

This photograph from a 50th birthday party might be possibly the worst example I have ever seen of a sadly inadequate number of balloons on the ceiling of your venue.

If you plan to have balloons bouncing playfully on the ceiling of your venue space, you may be surprised how many you need to order to make a big impact.

Before you order your balloons, find out the dimensions of your venue.

There is nothing sadder looking than a huge room with a few lonely balloons bobbing about!

The average balloon is about 30cm in diameter but you will obviously need three times as many 30cm balloons to cover one metre compared to those giant-size ie 90cm or more balloons.

There is an easy formula to calculate how many balloons you should order
Don't forget, if the odd one bursts, you need a few spare ones, anyway): simply multiply the length of the room by the width of the room by 10, 7 or 5.

To absolutely blanket the ceiling in balloons so you can't even see the ceiling anymore
You need to multiply the length in metres x width in metres x 10.

To have a good coverage of the ceiling
You need to multiply the length in metres x width in metres x 7.

To have a fair - but with some spaces - coverage of the ceiling
You need to multiply the length in metres x width in metres x 5.

So how many balloons would you need in real life?
Let's say your venue measured 25 metres x 6 metres and you wanted good (but not blanketed) coverage, you would need 25 x 6 x 7 = 1,050 balloons.
