Recently we went to a birthday at our friend Emma’s house, and loved the way these big round balloons looked. She got them from Party City online, and they arrive flat, so you do have to take them to your local toy store and get them blown up. When I asked Emma for the details about the balloons after the party, she gave me the full critique: “They looked amazing but one thing to ponder is their short shelf life—the helium lasted only half a day…I think they had all sunk by the next morning and one or two even sank by bedtime.” Honestly, they really looked so cute and old-fashioned I would probably do it even knowing their limitations.

    I wonder if the short life had anything to do with the balloons themselves, or if perhaps the place where they got inflated just didn’t add any Hi-Float (or other similar product). Last time I got balloons the woman who inflated them asked me if I wanted to pay an extra 25cents/balloon for this stuff they pump into the balloon prior to inflating. It greatly increases the life of your balloons.
    Anyways, those balloons do look great! Thanks for sharing:)
