How to Choose the Right Balloon Arch for Your Event

Balloon arches are a classic for a reason! They create fabulous entrances, beautifully frame a speaker or other focal point, and invite photos. But how do you decide what size balloon arch you need? Read on to learn when and where to use small, medium and large balloon arches at your DMV event!


A small balloon arch is approximately 8' high and 10' wide. It's the right size arch to put over a small walkway or path, to frame a standard registration table, or provide a photo spot for a small party.

At 10' high and 12' wide, a medium arch is the right size to frame ballroom doors, create a photo spot for a team of coworkers at a corporate event, or decorate a stage. It's our most popular arch!

Soaring ceilings and large spaces, like one of Amazon's warehouses, or the Washington Convention Center, call for a large or extra large arch, which start at 11'h and 16'w.
