Will Air Filled Balloons Do for Table Centerpieces?

Will a balloon that is just blown up and not filled with helium float with string and a weight on it?


To do as centerpieces for tables?



ANSWER

Hi there,

An air filled balloon doesn't float. Only helium filled balloons (both latex and foil) will float.

That being said, there are ways to create balloon centerpieces with air filled balloons.

For example, you could create a so-called balloon topiary tree.

I've answered a similar question here.

The video below shows a step-by-step tutorial for creating a mini balloon topiary tree. It's for a baby shower, but if you choose different colors and different finishing touches, you can adapt it to your event's theme.
