7 Steps to Making Perfect Confetti Balloons for Your Celebration

August 06, 2022

1. Choose the balloon of the most appropriate size for your event. When inflated, 12-inch balloons are more transparent than 18-inch balloons and can see more confetti, while smaller sizes are more likely to produce explosive confetti! However, 18-inch balloons are stronger and more suitable for long periods of time because they are less likely to be ejected accidentally.

2. Gently rub and stretch the balloon before inflating. This will help generate static electricity so that confetti will stick to the side of the balloon and be fully visible for the final flash effect.

 

3. Try to blow balloons near the start time of the event. For helium-filled balloons, the floating time is about 8 hours for 12-inch balloons and 20 hours for 18-inch balloons. Is there any longer activity than this? Skip to step 7!

 

4. Do not inflate beyond the size indicated on the package. (unless you want them to eject easily, a 12-inch balloon takes 5-10 minutes to fully inflate with a mouth, while an 18-inch balloon takes longer.

 

5. Rub the fabric with your inflatable balloon to encourage confetti to stick to the sides instead of sinking to the bottom. Rotate to distribute confetti evenly. When using helium, it may require a little more friction than blowing a balloon with your mouth.

 

6. Do not place inflatable balloons in direct sunlight or in high humidity or high temperature. Our balloons are made of natural latex and are biodegradable, which is a huge advantage for the environment, but it also means that in high humidity and / or direct sunlight, they begin to oxidize slowly and become velvety opaque a few days later.

 

7. For more than 8 hours of activity, use Balloon Shine and / or Hi-Float coatings to make your balloon durable, which slows down color changes and helium leaks. This is not necessary for most activities, and your balloon will look beautiful-all our photos were taken without any coating and follow the above tips. It is not recommended to highly float balloons with TISSUE confetti as it will cause your tissue confetti to agglomerate.
