White 646Q's make bones for both arches. Use 160Q's and 260Q's to add bone accents.

Glue a 31" lomey pedastal to a foam core base. 18 guage wire inside of 260Q's makes hangers and the spiral to hold the 5" balls. Use 5" latex to make quads top and bottom. Spiral a 260Q from top to bottom around lomey pedastal. This design has endless tree, eyeball topprints and aliens, celestial, etc.

20" gold foil stars spiral around a foam core base. 9" foil gold star is attached though center of foam core. #40 Angel Sheer gold star bows are tied on either side of 9" gold star. 18 guage wire inside of 260Q gold is pushed through foam core and taped off on bottom. Wires are then pulled up to form cage and tied together above 9" star. Attach 4" gold star with puff of ribbon.

12" emt pipe holds 3 pieces of 1/4" aluminum rod wrapped in star garland. 260Q silver and 160Q purple have a pinch twist on the end to hole a 4" foil star. 5" latex and foil star anchor the bottom.

Coordinating centerpiece uses 1/4" aluminum tubing to hold air-filled 260Q and 160Q burst. Base of aluminum tubing sets around a foam core circle with spiked bow.

Hi-end centerpiece uses working clock hands to count down New Year's Eve. Foam core wrapped in paper makes box that has clock on 2 sides. Box is set on mirror with foam core inside. (Glue foam core to a piece of duct tape on mirror so mirror is not damaged.) Pick onion grass, 4" foil stars and 5" rounds on Premium Balloon Stems and 260Q into foam core. Attach 10# monofilament to fantasy cloud. Spiral 260Q's from base to fantasy cloud. 260Q's extending from fantasy clouds use pinch twist to connect 4" foil stars.

Place one on either side for great entrance decor. 5" red latex on emt pipe is topped with an ironed candle flame from 18" citrine foil. Chris made one in about 2 minutes, but you only need 8 flames for the event. 20" Holly Leaves and 20" metallic gold rolled foil accent the candles.

Dance floor canopy is made of single candle with 20" metallic gold foil roll strung from candle to a center 3' red exploding latex. Attach the foil to a dowel to keep it stretched wide for added value.

260Q on 18 guage wire has a bit of gold foil on top to make flame and can be used in centerpieces.

Center 260Q is attached to weight at bottom and helium filled foil on top. 260Q and 5" eyeball topprints complete the piece.
