What weight in grams would I have to use to hold 3 party size helium balloons down?

I have made some balloon weights from material and sweets. Now I am not sure if they will be heavy enough to hold my helium filled balloons?

Calculating Balloon Weights
by: Margit

Hi Kat,

I assume you are using 11 inch round latex balloons for your balloon centerpiece? Filled with helium, their lifting capacity is 0.339 ounces (= 9.6 gr). For a balloon centerpiece with three 11" balloons, your weight would need to weigh at least 1.2 ounces or 28.8 gr (3 x 0.399 ounces or 3 x 9.6 gr).

Hope that helps,
Margit
