I found this one from Bridal Guide and the best part is, you can make this yourself! Here's how to do it. 

  1. Gather balloons that go with your color scheme and inflate with helium.
  2. Use a mesh net (found at a craft supply store) to connect the balloon to a small basket.
  3. Weigh down the balloon by putting marbles or vase fillers.
  4. Cover the weights with faux flowers to hide them from sight.
