Cheryl,

  Sorry I can't help out with the shred garland or fantasy flowers but the
waterfall is synch.
Try using only clear balloons and make many loosely formed garlands attached
to a rod or pole across the waterline of the waterfall. you may want to
consider a Duplet Pack or even a Tri Pack garland to 1: save balloons and 2:
to create a distinct look. Hanging them will be much the same as hanging
curtains. Personally I'd try not to make the garlands too perfect so to
create a bit of 'rough water' look. You could add a few brown balloon
underneath for a rocky edge look and even a plant growing out from a
artistic spot.
 As you get to the bottom of the falls I consider attaching clear
Link-O-Loons (if you have access to them) for they help to thin the whole
structure out and allow you to control the 'wave' look without the same
bulkiness of a spiral garland.
I'd also consider laying the L-O-Ls over the top of the falls to give the
look of water 'lapping' over the sides.

It should be fairly easy just have a tap running in the background for
inspiration.
