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

Excellent!

We ordered a bespoke balloon arch kit for our wedding ceremony and it was perfect! Easy to use and put together and fantastic quality. I will certainly be ordering with you again in the future.

Just what I was looking for!!

These acrylic pyramids come apart so you can fill them. I put silver, black and gold beads in mine. A bit tricky to place them together, but after a few tries I figured out a way. They are too light and I have doubts that it will stay in place using 4 regular size balloons. So I added a large washer inside for added weight. These turned out beautiful. A great addition to my table decorations.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are so glad that you loved these unusual weights, thank you for the idea to add a washer for weight - great tip! Your review is very much appreciated, every review helps us significantly in evaluating and tweaking our products and service. We hope that you enjoy a wonderful celebration. Best regards, Jo

Really lovely quality & came in a lovely box. Arrived within 2 days of purchasing them.

Excellent!

Wonderful balloon arch kit! An excellent range of really good quality balloons! The balloon arch kit lets you mix colours in both the larger and smaller sizes, which was perfect in creating a green and grey balloon arch for a baby shower. The instructions provided with the kit were very helpful especially given that I had never made a balloon arch before! This was exactly what I needed for the event, 100% would recommend!

Lovely balloon for 1st birthday

Bought this balloon for my daughter's 1st birthday and couldn't be happier. It's absolutely gorgeous and still floating over a week later. Very pleased with my purchase.
