We recommend blowing all confetti balloons up with a balloon pump or helium. This will avoid moisture going into the balloon.
Blow a few puffs of air into the balloons. Then, attach the balloon to the helium tank and inflate the rest of the balloon with helium. If once your balloon is inflated and it doesn't float or go transparent, this means there isn't enough helium added & you'll need to add a little more.
Helium lasts up to 8 hours. Please note that helium is sensitive to temperature so avoid extreme heat & extreme cold. On a hot day your balloon may only float for 2-3 hours. Our recommendation is to inflate the balloon very close to the start time of your event. Please be aware of sharp objects! Air can last up to 2-3 days this also depends on the temperature and sharp objects. The clarity of the balloon can become foggy in change of temperature and over time.
Confetti Dispersing- So, if at this point you’ve followed the instructions perfectly, but still the confetti hasn’t stuck to the sides of the balloon and is creating a sad pool of confetti at the bottom of the balloon?- don’t panic, we’ve all been there. But there’s an easy fix. (this can happen due to the conditions of the room, humidity, heat etc)
You’ll need to create static energy by rubbing the balloon on any item of clothing, preferably a scarf or wool jumper. Then, roll the balloon around for ultimate confetti dispersing. Voilà
Please note, our confetti balloons will not float for the same duration as standard balloons due to the mixture of helium & additional confetti weight inside the balloons. Depending on the event, for the best result, avoid blowing these up too far in advance i.e. the night before. Unfortunately, they won’t last!
