Inflating Orb Balloons with Air

by Jo Williams June 07, 2017

Our Metallic Orb Balloons are one of my personal favorites and I use them at pretty much every party that I throw! These Orbs are only meant to be used with helium as most people when they try to inflate them any other way you tend to get a 'square' rather than round shaped balloon. 

However it is possible to do if you don't need your balloon to float, air filled orbs look incredible in balloon garlands and are also great hung from the ceiling.

All you need is:

- Orb (Orbz) Balloon

- A hand held balloon pump

Keep inflating and the balloon will become squarish with wrinkled seams.Inflating Orbz Balloons with Air

Keep inflating to iron out all of the seams, the aim is to have completely flat seams and only then will your balloon be round.Inflating Orbz Balloons with Air

As soon as your seams are flat stop inflating and remove pump, the balloon will self seal.Inflating Orbz Balloons with Air

happy birthday balloon

lovely product!

Highly Recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ordered the Rainbow Magic Balloon Garland for my daughters 8th birthday party. Very easy to put together. I used a hand pump with no problems. Took me approximately 1 to 2 hours to assemble ( sorry wasn’t watching the time so this is a guesstimate!) the balloons were excellent quality and it looked exactly as advertised once completed. It’s nearly a week after the party and they are still hanging proud in my living room. I would highly recommend 👍🏽

Rose Gold Confetti

Love, love, love 🙂

Bubble balloons

Just what I wanted for our celebrations. Perfect balloons for personalising.

Bottles

Excellent bottles for lunch boxes - can be reused for juice so don’t have to keep buying cartons much less packaging 👍
