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 400 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 100 latex 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.
