8 Simple Balloon Decoration Ideas Using Candy Filled Balloons
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. It is a great idea for a child’s birthday or any party decoration really!
Candy Stuffed Birthday Balloon Ideas:

So many fun stuffed balloon ideas! These are the best ways to use candy filled balloons in your balloon design. The stuffed 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.

Party Supplies Needed For Candy Stuffed Balloons:
- latex balloons (different colors are fun)
- Hershey’s new birthday-themed products (I used the Jolly Rancher and Twizzlers Party Mix)
- embroidery thread
- large needle
In general, large latex balloons are best for stuffing with candy. However, different sizes are fun for things like balloon centerpieces or bouquets.
While I used these candy and confetti stuffed balloons for my daughter’s birthday celebration, they are actually a great way to that festive atmosphere and wow factor to any special occasions. From bridal showers to baby shower decoration to corporate events, you can’t go wrong with these simple balloon ideas.
Giant balloons are another growing trend for using to make confetti balloons. They work to stuff with a few candies too!
How To Put Candy In A Balloon:
Here is how to fill a balloon with candy. First, gather the supplies mentioned above and lay them out on a clear work space so you can begin to make balloon decorations. Next, follow the simple steps below for candy filled balloons.
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 socks over your feet. This simple trick will allow you to fill balloons in no time. You don’t want the candy stuffed balloons to get too heavy so try to limit the candies to 3-5 in each balloon.
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. You could even add glow sticks. Blow up your “stuffed” balloons nice and large and tie them off. That is how to make stuffed balloons.
The candy filled balloons will be weighted down with the candy so you can also just set a few here and there on the mantle or for extra table decorations. Or you can make a wall decoration banner. 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!
Place Candy Balloons
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!
