Foil balloons can generally be inflated with helium and are self sealing. These balloons come with a valve which indicates when the balloons are full. You can inflate as long as the valve does not switch off and stops accepting any further helium. Make sure to fill the balloons slowly, so as to not burst or overfill them. Foil balloons last a good 2 to 3 days.
The quality of the latex balloon dictates whether they have to be filled with air or helium. Ensure that the balloons are good enough to take helium. Some balloons may be able to take helium, but deflate after sometime. Helium balloons are thicker in size and darker when un-inflated. If you want your balloons to last a long time once blown up, keep them away from sunlight.
Regardless of what event you’re having, balloons are a timeless decoration; and and affordable one. Based on the occasion, you can use balloons in various colors, shapes and sizes.
