Candy Filled Birthday Balloon Ideas
My favorite birthday balloon decoration ideas involve a surprise element. The birthday balloon decorations are made extra fun with a surprise inside! You can hide candy and confetti inside the birthday balloons. You will see the shadow of the candy and confetti inside but you won’t know exactly what is in there.
Birthday Balloon Decoration Ideas:
- Candy filled balloons make a fun table centerpiece
- Tie one to the back of each chair
- make a balloon banner or garland
- create a birthday party theme shape made out of balloons- example- a heart
- create a balloon dart wall
The balloons can be popped at the end of the party for a festive bonus and guests can collect the candies and enjoy the confetti. Because the candies may fall on the floor, you will want to use individually wrapped candies. The Hershey Company’s new birthday-themed products are the perfect candies because they come dressed in their birthday party best. From Kit Kat Miniatures to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures to iconic Hersheys Kisses Chocolates, your favorite Hershey products are now available designed for birthday parties. Whether you are using them in goodie bags, for party games, or to make balloon decoration ideas like these, you can rest assured that Hershey candies are crowd-favorites. Making your little one feel extra special on their big day just got easier! My favorite of these birthday balloon decorations ideas is to make balloon garland.
You can find these Hershey’s new birthday-themed products at select Walmart locations situated in colorful displays in the prime party supply zone (not the candy aisle). They are easy to grab as you are shopping around the store and checking off your party shopping list.

How To Make Balloon Decorations For Birthday Party:
Gather the supplies mentioned above and lay them out on a clear work space so you can begin to make balloon decorations. Begin stuffing a few of the Hershey’s new birthday-themed products inside the balloon necks. I used Jolly Ranchers candies and Jolly Rancher Chews. I stuffed about 3 candies into each balloon pulling the balloon necks over the candies kind of like tights over your feet. I didn’t want the balloons to get to heavy so I only used 3 candies in each but you could use more if you like.
Next, hold the balloon over your bag of confetti (mine were metallic hearts and sparkles) and sprinkle a few pinches of confetti inside the neck of the balloon. Blow up your “stuffed” balloons nice and large and tie them off. They will be weighted down with the candy so you can also just set a few here and there on the coffee table or mantle for extra decorations if you wish. Now thread your embroidery thread onto the needle and pull free your length of the banner that you want to create. Use the needle to poke the extra tie off part of the balloon and thread the balloons onto your embroidery thread to create your banner.
The great thing about this method is that you don’t have to be very precise because you can just slide your balloons into place once you hang the banner and clip the extra string. (If you prefer you could just tie the string around each balloon tie off but then you will want to measure and space the balloons evenly as you go.) That is it! Your candy filled birthday balloon decoration is all set! Now you just hang it up, slide balloons apart evenly and enjoy. This decoration is perfect is use for carnival birthday party theme and let the pop the balloons outside to get the goodies out!
I hope you enjoy these birthday balloon decoration ideas and that you have fun making this birthday balloon decoration! Making your little one feel extra special on their big day just got easier with Hershey’s new birthday-themed products that can be added to the party spread, used as party favors or prizes, and even part of the decorations!
