Another way to use balloons as decorations is to attach them to the anchors and place them on a dining table or near the Christmas tree. Or you can also put them on the coffee table and sit down around them with your family and friends. 

However, one must ensure that the balloons float at a defined height so that they don’t restrict the guest view when they sit at the table. 

Besides, you can also use air balloons (helium-filled) and attach them either to gift boxes or gift wraps filled with sand. They offer an aesthetically pleasing look to the entire decoration.

Another beautiful idea for Christmas decorations with balloons is to use them to decorate a Christmas tree. You don’t need to fill them with helium. You can simply air-blow and hang them on the tree. 

In case you don’t get a Christmas tree, you can use balloons to create one. You can watch various DIY videos on how to form a Christmas tree using balloons and follow the instructions to create one. Either you can use just green-coloured balloons or your preferred colours. 

Balloons are safer and cheaper alternatives to glass balls if you have kids and pets around your house.
