What balloon should I use for a Hot Air Balloon Model?

by Frances

I'm making a hot air balloon for a new baby. Is it best to use foil or latex balloons?

Thank you,
Frances

Answer:

Hi Frances,

I've actually never seen a hot air balloon model made with a foil balloon. If you do an image search at Google for "hot air balloon model", you'll notice that the self made ones are done with large latex balloons.

If you change the colours of the hot air balloon model we show at balloon-decoration-guide.com, you should have a nice present for your baby shower.

Good luck with it, and I'd love to see a photo of your decoration. You can simple submit your photo to our photo gallery and we'll feature it in the slide show at the top of the page.
