Safari Hat

Safari balloons can be used as centerpieces as well. If you use balloons for centerpieces, ensure they are manageable and don’t take up too much space on the table.

Suppose you want to use a balloon garland, a garland kit, or a balloon arch. In that case, we recommend setting that up to welcome the baby somewhere other than as a centerpiece.
