I am building some balloon columns for a party on the weekend and this is my first attempt of doing multiple projects for 1 party...so I'm a bit nervous I need x-tra time to inflate the balloons and put the designs together. How far in advance can I inflate the balloons and/or build the design? The party is inside.


Thanks for your help and thanks for a great resource to get fabulous tips!!

Hi Natalie,

Thanks for your kind words about Balloon Decoration Guide.

I assume you are talking about air-filled columns, right?

You can blow up the balloons several days in advance, but - and this is extremely important - you have to store them in large plastic bags that close tightly around the balloons.

If you leave the inflated balloons exposed to air (even indoors), they will oxidize and won't look good anymore.

Good luck with the party!
