Silent Auction Decorations - This also works well indoors and makes a great silent auction area accent. Attach helium filled balloons to fishing line and then attach the fishing line where you want an attention-getting archway.

These over-sized balloons measuring 3′ and 4′ lended an air of sophistication to this nonprofit gala. They were used in the silent auction (in multiple colors) and in the ballroom (in shades of pink) to beautifully fill the large space. They created a “dropped ceiling” effect.http://www.redappleauctions.com/auction-decoration-ideas-elegant-yes-elegant-balloons/

Love the Arch Idea! Beach Ball Arch - Another fun way to enhance your silent auction fundraiser. Use Dollar Store inner-tubes between each beach ball. Some double-sided tape holds them in place. {photo only, no link}

What a great idea to display special auction items. "These display stands for the Silent Auction were painted in Chalkboard paint. We then turned the kids loose with some chalk. Just another reminder to guests, why we are there."

This has to be one of the most creative displays I have seen! "I love this module. My friend Susan and I do this for The Relief Nursery. It is a group of "experiences" that may not be in your top 10 but certainly in your top 500...it's a "mini bucket list"--this has items such as a gourmet canning lesson, a tatoo, a zip line, bungee jump, various lessons and experiences. It's great fun"
