Protect The Balloon!

While it is obvious to keep your balloon away from sharp objects, many people don’t understand that there are other enemies to the humble balloon. A major issue for a helium balloon is anything towards semi-extreme temperature. If it is too hot or too cold, your balloon will react adversely and it seriously reduces the longevity of your party-partner. Therefore, try make sure you keep them at a reasonable temperature!

One Bouquet at a Time

Balloon bouquets bring a wonderful liveliness to a table at an event, but transporting them can be something of a nightmare. Many people try to save time by carrying more than one bouquet at a time, but you are just asking for a major inconvenience when you set them down. They have a habit of tangling in transit, so try to keep them separate!

Collect Your Balloons at the End of Shopping

This is a textbook error, and we know we’ve been caught out before, but if you are picking up balloons make sure that you do it at the end of a shopping spree. If you pick your balloons up at the start, the best you can hope for is only looking like a wally for the duration of your shopping, the worst is carrying a series of popped balloons around with you as you accidentally pop them along the way!
