CONFETTI BALLOONS are a great addition to any baby shower and will create a stunning backdrop that will wow your guests.
Our how-to confetti balloon guide will help you get the best of out of your balloons, including our top tips on how to get the confetti to adhere to the sides of the balloon.
Our baby shower confetti balloons are yellow in colour prior to inflation. They will become transparent when properly inflated and the latex has been stretched. Our balloons are suitable for both air and helium inflation.
Air VS Helium
Filling a confetti balloon with air, is the easiest way to get your confetti to cling to the sides of your balloon but it will not allow it to float.
Whereas helium will allow the balloon to float but due to it's innate characteristics, the confetti will pool at the bottom of the balloon - see our top tips to help this below. Confetti balloons have a shorter float time due to the added weight of the confetti inside, so should be inflated as close to the event as possible.

Inflating Confetti Balloons with Helium:
Why is my balloon not floating?
Balloons need helium to float. If your balloon is not inflated fully this may be the reason that it is not floating. Alternatively there could be too much air and not enough helium, so the balloon is not able to lift.
Why is my balloon misty and not clear?
We recommend using a balloon pump to prevent the build up of condensation inside the balloon. If you have inflated the balloons with air from your lungs it will appear misty due to the condensation, this should clear after 20-30 minutes. After a few days a balloon will start to become misty due to the oxidation process.
Why are my helium filled balloons starting to drop?
Confetti balloons have a shorter float time due to the weight of the confetti, so will not last as long as normal balloons. We recommend inflating them just before the event.
Different temperatures and humidities can reduce a balloons float time. We suggest keeping the balloons in a room with an even temperature. The confetti balloons will deflate slightly in cold air and excessive heat can cause helium to expand and burst the balloon.
What is hi-float and do I need to use it?
Hi-float is a fantastic liquid solution which forms a coating and helps helium inflated balloons float for longer. We do not recommend using hi-float for confetti balloons, as if not used correctly it will make your confetti clump and will not spread evenly inside the balloon.
