Can i inflate (air) balloons the night before the event?

I would like to make a balloon arch for my son's first birthday party in the park outdoors, and was wondering if its OK to start inflating (air balloons) the night before to save time.


Hi there,

Yes, you can inflate latex balloons with air the night before the event. I suggest you put the inflated balloons in a plastic bag, that closes tightly over the balloons, to prevent them from oxidizing. Large trash bags or mattress bags will do the job just fine.

Tip: I've answered a similar question before on my FAQ page. You can use the search bar on top of my pages or on this dedicated site search page to get answers to your questions faster!

Have fun with your son's 1st Birthday Party.
