This is a simple idea that you may find helpful.

  • We did a decorating job at the local cafe for a group of friends.
  • We took photographs.
  • We overlaid promotional information for both the restaurant and ourselves on photo prints.
  • The restaurant displayed and distributed the small pictures like oversized business cards to their customers.

It worked well to promote us both. Maybe this idea will help you as well



The yellow umbrella with the white trim was suspended from above with a single magnet and three monofilament lines. The umbrella was prepared and installed ahead of time.

The flowers on the table were MadeWithBalloons™ at the gathering for entertainment as well as decorations.

They were loaded in connected pairs (Rouse patented “SIMPLE” technique) into a 5 foot diameter Rouse Matrix™ Umbrella frame.

The RMS™ Umbrella is one of the Expand-And-Load™ frames that comes in a small package. You can purchase them online from Ballooniverse Mall. They are available in both the 5 foot size shown here and in the smaller 2.5 foot size as well. Simply expand the frame to full size and load it with balloons.

This Rouse patented “FAST” technique is not only much faster for loading balloons, but it also leaves each balloon more securely in place since each balloon is anchored to another balloon on both ends.
