decorations for any tennis party.

topper figurines to decorate your table or centerpiece.
Balloons add color and atmosphere to any tennis affair.
balloons are your standard blow up balloons. They can usually
be filled with helium but often loose their float after a day.
balloons hold their loft for several days.
You can bring balloons you bought elsewhere to any drug store, grocery
store, or party store that has a helium tank. They will fill them
and place a ribbon around them for you to carry the balloons. The cost
is very reasonable but varies from store to store. Give yourself
plenty of time as it takes several minutes to blow up each balloon.
Use an odd number of balloons in a bouquet and space them out so
they're slightly different heights. Tie ribbon on the end of several
balloons and curl the ribbon using scissors or a knife. Weigh
down balloon bouquets with soda cans or canned food wrapped in
tennis theme wrapping paper. You can also allow balloons
to just float up to the ceiling with long ribbons.
We hope this advice helps make your event a great success. A
little creativity goes a long way and you don't have to spend a
fortune. Good Luck!
