Am interested to know more about balloon drop and net and how they are released specially at a wedding and birthday parties both indoors and outdoors. Are they helium or air filled balloons?

Is there a coloured book of balloon decorations images that I can buy? I intend to start a balloon business.

Balloon Drop and Balloon Business
by: Margit

Hi Bessie,

For a balloon drop you either need a specialised bag or net, and between 100 and 500 air filled latex balloons, depending on the size of the net and the size of the balloons. Typically 5 inch or 9 inch balloons are used. The net or bag should come with ceiling clips and a release cord.

Here's a nice example of a balloon drop kit, complete with bag and 80 latex balloons.

Or, if you want to go really big, you could get this large balloon drop net which holds up to 500 x 9" balloons.

Regarding your question about a coloured book of balloon decorations...

Depending on what you are looking for and how much you want to invest, you could try one of the options below:

Hope that helps,

Margit

Balloon release

Hi
A balloondrop is balloons falling down from the ceiling. This is usually done with a net construction. Balloons are filled with air or nitro. When you fill balloons with helium they go up and will not fall from the ceiling.
