Balloon Column

How long in advance can I make a balloon column for my sons birthday?

ANSWER

Hi Riki,

Are you planning to make an air filled or a helium filled balloon column?

If you plan to use helium, you'll have to create the column on the same day.

If you plan to use air-filled balloons you can blow up the balloons a few days before the birthday. However, it is super important to store the balloons in a big plastic bag that closes tightly over the balloons, to keep them from oxidizing.

Hope that helps. Please say "Happy Birthday" to your son from me. :-)
