Our gorgeous metallic Orb Balloons are one of my personal favorites and I use them at pretty much every party that I throw! These Orbs are designed to be used with helium only as filling with air can be tricky to reach their round shape. However 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. Here is how to air-fill them correctly:
All you need is:
- A hand held balloon pump
Use A hand Held Balloon Pump and gently insert into the balloon neck.
Start to inflate and as you pump the balloon will unfurl and change shape - it will look nothing like and orb yet!
Keep inflating and the balloon will become squarish with wrinkled seams.
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.
As soon as your seams are flat stop inflating and remove pump, the balloon will self seal.
