Using the Cloth modifier correctly

Hi there, here's my problem: I have a balloon with a ribbon wrapped around it. I want the ribbon to flap in the wind and I'm having trouble. I'm not greatly experienced with the Cloth modifier so I'm sure my issue may be obvious to someone more 'au fait' with this stuff. I have a plane running along a spline. In the Cloth parameters I chose the 'silk' preset and add wind and gravity forces. For the group and node (i think this is where my prob is) I tried selecting different vertices for the group and the balloon as the node. The ribbon seeems to contract and suck in each time I simulate the effect. Can anyone help me out?
