Confetti Balloons: Another Explosive Event by Table Art

Finish an Awards show with a BANG! Exploding Confetti Balloons:

Black & Gold Confetti Balloons @ The Birmingham Hilton Metropole 

Following it’s popularity in 2019, our Exploding Confetti Balloons continue to be a favorite among event agencies. Roebuck Productions selected these creations for a Gala at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole. Get in touch for a free consultation.

As a result of pairing a black balloon with a gold tail, this sophisticated look proved to be the perfect accessory to the Papa John’s 2020 Gala ‘Going for Gold’. As awards were announced, balloons popped and showered the Winners in Gold Confetti.

Importantly, The Birmingham Hilton Metropole played host to the proceedings. The Monarch Suite was the ideal space for the event. With chandeliers lit beautifully in hues of gold, purple and blue, this was a glorious backdrop to our black Confetti Balloons.

This was our first coloured balloon choice from a client and we have to say, the results really do look spectacular! In a similar vein, this was the first occasion that we added a balloon garland tail. The gold cascade of metallic material was a fabulous addition- catching the light beautifully. In short, we are taking these balloons to the next level, allowing clients to pick any colour combination!

HALO-FX | Event Photography

Halo FX supplies firework displays, indoor fireworks, stage pyro, and special FX.

Halo-FX first developed these Confetti Balloons with the design studio here at Table Art. MD Ben Morley-McKay is a staple for all Exploding Confetti and Pyro bookings, making sure that each unit is wired with precision. Most importantly, he has developed a state of the art firing system that tests every unit before use. Consequently, the reliability of the balloons moment to ‘pop’ is almost at 100%. 

Lots of exciting events coming up with Ben and his crew so keep your eyes peeled!

5* Reviews

“Table art were fantastic at our event! They got on with their job efficiently and were really friendly making sure we were happy with all positioning and colour effects etc. Also a big thanks to Helen for organising everything for us beforehand, we knew exactly who was coming, at what time and what their contact details were which made for a very smooth transition. We would definitely use them again for future events!”

“Top class company! From start to finish Helen couldn’t do enough for us! She helped me to pick the right table centre for our event and made the booking very easy and stress free. On the night Joe was there to set up and de rig… he was extremely helpful and again couldn’t do enough to help us!!
The end result exceeded my expectations. The table centres we’re beautiful and made the room look so special, when our guests walked in all I could hear was ‘wow’… which is exactly what I wanted!

Thank you so much all at table art I will definitely be using you again in the future!”

Stylish Results

Certainly, with the Awards Season truly upon us, it’s no surprise that the ‘Gold’ look is so sorely sought after. Sometimes it’s easy to get carried away with a colour and just go gold for everything! Take a different approach and use it to accessorize the event. Subtle colour notes throughout the event can produce a sophisticated look. Above all, it prevents your chosen colour becoming overpowering and tacky. It is so easy to go overboard, subtly is the way to go! 

For instance, Roebuck Productions shared our vision for a subtle approach to the gold theme. They chose to go for a polished black balloon filled with Gold Confetti and accessorized with a metallic tail. In the same vein, they chose black linen cloths and chair covers, highlighted with gold chair sashes and confetti balloons.

The Birmingham Hilton Metropole 

Right in the heart of the action… the Monarch Suite:.

A venue favourite for the crew. The Monarch and Kings suite of the Birmingham Hilton Metropole never disappoints. With a friendly and professional events team, functions run smoothly. Always a blessing when the team are working around on site teams and AV crews.

We have more events to come at this iconic venue, more to come in March so make sure to follow us on social media for the latest news.

The Installation

To clarify, unlike the vast majority of our table centres, the Exploding Confetti Balloon are a time consuming install. It is vital that every balloon is wired up correctly. That each balloon has the correct ratio of Air/ Helium. That every DMX unit is numbered and addressed. With all of these factors to consider, we average out a 5 minute installation for every balloon. Therefore, it’s important to allow sufficient time in your set up time schedule. 

If you are fancying these at your next event… and why wouldn’t you?! Above all, consider carefully the install time. If the event space isn’t suitable for an early arrival, our team can happily work in an adjacent room. As a result, they would simply walk the centrepieces into the room when the event space is ready. For example, that was the case on this particular event. The Monarch Suit was being used for both the day conference and evening Gala. No problem for the Roebuck Team who kindly offered up the Norfolk Suite for us to start install.

Below is a cheeky shot of the install inside the Norfolk Suite. The Confetti Balloons all lined up and ready to go!
