Balloon Frame - Heart - Metallic
I would recommend this heart frame to everyone. I am using this frame to sit behind our wedding cake. I am running clear lights around it with 5" white balloons & putting red roses on it with green ivy. I have read reviews in the past saying that the frame would not go together, well I am here to tell you that it went together just fine without a problem. I love it!

Versatile decoration, love it
Not going to lie to you, it looks cheap, but surprisingly it did the job perfectly. I didn't buy 5" balloons, but 260Q worked as well. I would post pics when I do the whole Feb 14th decoration at home, so you will see this heart can add a romantic touch to my St. Valentine and I can reuse it at my anniversary.
**almost forgot: you will need tape to keep the heart together; and it doesn't have like extra handles so it can be hanged from a ceiling or wall. However, with a little imagination, everything is possible

Not The Greatest....
I bought this for a 25th Anniversary party celebration for my parents. Let me say first that it DOES say in the description that you should use 5" balloons, so anyone complaining about that should simply have read the description. It is difficult to figure out how to place these because you cannot hang them from anything and since they are thin wires, you cannot really lean them up against anything because they will detach.
After much frustration, here is what I came up with:
*Try lights instead of balloons. It is hard to make this look pretty with balloons.
*You can use super glue or hot glue around the back of the wire heart and put some pretty tulle from the fabric store across the back.
*My sister borrowed this for her daughter's birthday party that was circus themed. One of the games was throwing darts at balloons. She used the small balloons and put them around this heart. It was very fun for the kids. :)
Overall, I would not recommend this for an event if you want it to look elegant, but it could be used for other things.

Wish they came with hangers
I ordered two of these put them together before the big day didn't have problems at all. Little difficult to do without a helper my daughter made a great assistant. My only thing with it is wish there was something to hold it to where every your going to put it and instructions on how to tie balloons to it. Other than that we are happy with them.

We also purchased pink balloons from Oriental Trading to go with this. We had never created one before, but this frame made it very easy!

Can't wait to use
I bought this heart frame to use at my granddaughter's wedding with the 5" white balloons and red ribbon. Can hardly wait to see how it turns out. I was thrilled that it comes apart for easy transporting and storing. .

Great touch for decorating
I read the review on this after I had purchases it and kinda thought oh no what did I order but when I received mine I ordered 2 both were very easy to assemble and went together great I had no problems. These were also a great touch to the decorating at the wedding lots of people asked where we had ordered the ballons from when we told them it was the frame and we put the balloons on ourselves they said it was cute seemed to be a great hit. Also it is easier if you tie the balloons directly to the frame and that you use the 5in balloons ours held 105 balloons each.

Ummm. How about attaching flowers to it or something different like crepe paper bells and ivy.

This was a complete waste of money. I, too, had to get help to shave off the ends so they would fit together. It made a mess, time consuming and still didn't hang right. It is now filed under "G" --in the garbage!

This product would be great if there were instructions included. I did not realize that 5" balloons were to be used; we tried using 10" balloons and it was a disaster. Also was hard to put pieces together; we had to have a maintence man shave the ends so they would fit together.
