Do you NEED helium to inflate a mylar balloon?

I would like to add small mylar balloons to some premade centerpieces that I have purchased. Do I need helium to inflate them? I do not need them to float.

No you don't need helium

The small mylars wont'fly so you don't use helium in them. that would be a waste of helium I think.
You can buy them pre-inflated or you can inflate them yourself. Use a small straw and insert into the balloon a little way and blow into the straw and blow up the balloon. Hold the end and then use a heat sealer or an iron to seal the balloon. good luck!
