How Do I Inflate My Balloon?

Filling 30cm – 90cm latex balloons (including confetti filled)

(Instructions courtesy of Poppies For Grace)

Helium instructions:

Helium filled balloons can float for up to 12 hours, however this is dependant on how they are handled, transported & mostly importantly: weather. Helium is sensitive to temperature so avoid extreme heat & extreme cold. On a hot day your balloon may only float for 2-3hours. Our recommendation is to inflate the balloon very close to the start time of your event. Please be aware of sharp objects, your balloon will pop.

In most cases the confetti will pool in the bottom of your balloon. Some helium tanks do allow for some static, to create static; rub the inflated balloon with your hand & roll the balloon for the confetti to stick. This process may need to be repeated during your event. Bare in mind we cannot guarantee the confetti will stick when inflating with helium.

Air instructions:

Blow up your balloon using a balloon pump or air compressor. Do not blow up the balloon with your mouth. For our fun confetti balloons, inflate with a balloon pump and rub the balloon with your hand to create static. Roll the confetti around inside the balloon and let the static work its magic. You may need to repeat the process. Please be aware of sharp objects and heat and lights sources as all have the potential to effect balloons adversely.

WARNING: Balloons are not toys. Children can choke or suffocate on non-inflated or broken balloons. Adult supervision is required. Keep non-inflated balloons away from children, and discard broken balloons immediately.

PLEASE NOTE: Balloons are Balloons therefore in nature they are fragile. We use the highest quality latex balloon available, however please use great care when inflating. If you are concerned please order extra balloons for your event if you are concerned about popping. We do not offer refunds on balloons.

How The Hell Do I Make These Balloon Pops?

1) Gather your ingredients – a pack of Balloon Pops and a balloon pump

2) Inflate the balloons using the pump, you can release air as you move your fingers up the base of the balloon to make a circular shape. It’s important to use a pump as this size of balloon is difficult to inflate using your mouth and the warmth of your breath will fog the clear balloon (nice!)

3) Rub each balloon with your hand to create static, roll the balloon around and the confetti will static to the sides of the ballon.

4) Tie the included cord to the base of the balloon and trim to length.

5) Thread the cord through the paper straw and tug on the cord to wedge the balloon into place.

6) Cut a length of ribbon and tie into place.

And there we go! You’re a Balloon Pop Expert!
