You Are Never Too Big For Balloons

In the last year, Future Affairs Productions, a design and decorating company based in Providence, RI., has been working with new and different decor medium called Qualatex Decorator Shapes that has heads turning not only around the country but also around the world. The creators of the product, Pioneer Balloon Co., called upon Future Affairs to showcase and launch this new product. One of the first applications for this innovative decorating technique was used at the ISES Rhode island Black Tie and Blue Jeans Gala in the grand ballroom of the elegant Biltmore Hotel and again recently at the World Balloon Convention in Dallas.

The Qualatex Decorator Shapes come in a variety of sizes in the shapes of Starpoints and Tapers. The shapes are then assembled in patterns to create the most unique walls, screen surrounds and chandeliers. Combining this decor with fabric and innovative lighting magnifies the impact because of the shapes' highly reflective material.

We have just scratched the surface on the potential of what can be done with this product. We are working with Pioneer Balloon Co. to come up with new shapes that can expand our design options, providing an array of uses that will best serve our customers' needs now and in the future.

What makes the shapes very user-and budget - friendly is that they ship flat, there is nominal on-site production equipment required and rigging in most instances is minimal. The Future Affairs team has been using the Decorator Shapes at a host of venues serving multiple event decor needs such as backdrops, accents pieces, stage sets, and chandeliers. Once they are designed, they are simply installed with hooks.

Just recently the Future Affairs design team was hired to decorate another final-night event, "An Evening of Stars" in Dallas for the World Balloon Convention. Here, the team combined the use of these new designs along with an incredible array of special effects.

The Decorator Shapes were used to create the main stage set, unbelievable screen surrounds and floor-to-ceiling perimeter decor. In addition, eight special-effect chandeliers framed with the Decorator Shapes were constructed and then hung in the ballroom. On cue, the spheres exploded, releasing chains of twinkle lights from the ceiling with thousands of pieces of Flutter Fetti filling the air, creating a spectacular effect.

We have worked with a lot of textures in our careers. In lieu of fabric shapes or sculpted forms. QUALATEX Decorator Shapes provide big solutions, a wow factor, affordability and a whole new level of design and decor applications.
