Using Balloons Outdoors

Balloons are fragile, and using them outdoors subjects them to more stress than indoor use. Here's what you can do to get the best performance from balloons used outdoors.

1. Keep the balloons inside until your outdoor event is about to begin. This reduces the exposure time to sunlight and wind-blown grit, both of which can cause balloons to pop.

2. On bright, sunny, hot days, use light-colored balloons. They will reflect sunlight and last longer than dark colors, which will absorb sunlight and overheat quickly. Color Chart

3. The hotter the temperature, the higher the risk that your balloons will pop if they are in direct sunlight. If possible, use your outdoor balloons in a shady area, but make sure they are not in danger of being blown into trees or other sharp objects.

4. Extreme cold temperatures, anything below freezing, will increase the chances that your balloons will prematurely shrink or pop. Try to limit the amount of time the balloons will be exposed to the cold.

5. Order extra balloons. Assume that some of your balloons are going to pop, and be prepared with extras.

Many of our customers use balloons outdoors with great results, but because of the risks associated with outdoor use, we do not offer any warranty for balloons used outdoors.

When the party is over, please pop and dispose of all balloons.
