Balloon Ideas Without Helium

April 17, 2013

I believe that no party is complete without a balloon, as far as I'm concerned one single balloon can create a party!

Personally I adore balloons when they are filled with helium, I love the way they float effortlessly in the air and I adore the way children are captivated by these incredible objects on the ends of string... I found them totally magical as a child and I still do.

Helium has its downsides though, it is expensive and is becoming more so as it is currently in short supply. Also, helium filled latex balloons, although beautiful, do not stay afloat long, they need to be filled on the day of the event and may only stay in the air for as little as 12 hours!

There is plenty of style that can be added with balloons just filled with good old oxygen. The good news is they are inexpensive and can last for weeks, here are some ideas and inspiration as to what to do with balloons at your next party!

Balloon garlands are so simple to create, string your balloons together for a fun and bright bunting. This is a really good way to use balloons in an outdoor setting as they wont blow away!

Good choice, speedy delivery. Thamks

Perfect for a film party, and perfect size

I wanted popcorn holders for my daughter's 11th film birthday party. These were very easy to pop open. They were a really good size, big enough for enough popcorn, but not too big, so all was eaten! They went down really well with the kids. Great price, and speedy delivery.

Perfect for a film party, and huge!

I hadn't seen this film balloon before. It was so perfect for my daughter's 11th film birthday party. I blew one up (I didn't use helium) and put the other on our window as a decoration. It was great quality, great price and arrived really quickly.

Perfect for a film party, and huge!

I was doing a film party for my 11 year old daughter. I wanted a few things that would make a big impact. I bought 2 of these. One I blew up (it said helium was needed, but I just blew it up normally.....I was v light headed afterwards 😂). It was spot on perfect, and the other one I put on the window as a decoration. I was very impressed with the quality, price and speed of arrival. Will def buy from here again.
