Party Tips for Balloon Inflation and Simple Decoration

  • Use helium-quality balloons. Avoid contact with extreme heat
  • 11” latex balloon: 12-16 hours average float time if not over/under inflated
  • Right-sizing balloon inflation : measure distance between 2 chairs (i.e.: 11" distance for 11” latex balloon) and inflate the balloon within gap
  • Group balloon bouquets in arrangements of odd numbers. Stagger arrangements or layer in groups (i.e.: 2, 2 and 1)
  • Coordinate balloon ribbon colours and balloons
  • Secure arrangement to balloon weight
  • For table decoration place lowest balloons no less than 24” from table top
  • Balloon releases: visit industry code of conduct: https://www.nabas.co.uk/balloons-and-releases

Use helium balloon cylinders safely.

Connect inflator and then open valve slowly. Never use damaged equipment. Inhaling helium can lead to asphyxiation.
