Balloon ribbons to buy to tie down your balloons. This 5mm wide ribbon can be stripped even more narrow or curled using a scissor blade. The easiest way to attach the balloon ribbon to your latex balloon is to inflate the balloon and then actually tie the balloon's neck around the ribbon itself making sure to leave 40cm dangling down. This is the bit you can curl and it looks very professional. It saves trying to tie it on after you have tied the balloon neck and no extra knotting is required. Balloon ribbon can be used to wrap parcels too and can make a plain paper look very pretty. It's pretty strong too so can be used to help hang up other decorations whilst keeping in the party colour scheme.
