We had Bryce's first birthday party out at a park. The party started at 10AM, and as usual, there were a million things to do that morning. Between getting the bounce house set up, transporting the grill and all of the food to the park, picking up the cake, and decorating the pavilion, inevitably we would forget something. That something was the balloons. About two minutes before the party started I sent my uncle on a mission to go get the balloons. You can't have a party without balloons, right? He returned with the 40 balloons I had dropped off at the store to be filled with helium. It was quite the hassle, to say the least.
Thanks to Balloon Time, we were able to fill our own balloons for the next party we hosted!
Balloon Time® Helium Balloon Kits are available in several varieties to meet your party needs. Each kit contains a lightweight, disposable helium-filled tank, with easy-to-follow instructions and a helium balloon capacity chart to ensure the balloons are properly filled. Each tank's easy-fill nozzle allows for safe and controlled filling. The kit's flip-top package houses the helium tank during use and provides a handy tray to store balloons and other decorations during inflation.
We received the Balloon Time 30 Helium Balloon Kit for review. This kit came with an 8.9 cubic-foot helium-filled tank, 30 vibrant, assorted-color, 9" latex balloons, and a spool of ribbon. The kit will fill 30 9" latex balloons, or 16 11" latex balloons. If you prefer foil balloons, the kit will fill 16 18" foil balloons, or 10 20" foil balloons.
Our Memorial Day vacation included celebrating my cousin Alaina's 11th birthday. My aunt planned a pool party for all of her friends, and I brought the balloons to help decorate the patio.
The Balloon Time Helium Balloon Kit was so easy to use! I turned the handle to open the valve, slipped the balloon onto the black nozzle, pressed down on the nozzle to fill the balloon, tied it, and tied a piece of ribbon to it. The first balloon I tried ended up popping because I believe I overfilled it, but once I learned how much helium to fill them with, the rest inflated just fine.
We tied a couple of the balloons to the mailbox to let Alaina's friends know where the party was.
The rest of the balloons wen out on the patio. Doesn't it look festive?
I will never buy helium balloons from a store again! It was so much more convenient to fill them myself. Balloon Time makes party decorating easy! These portable helium balloon kits are perfect for birthdays, showers, play dates and more!
The Balloon Time 30 Helium Balloon Kit retails for around $39.99 and can be found at major retailers like Target, Wal-Mart and Party City. You can download a Balloon Time coupon for $2 off a Balloon Time Helium Balloon Kit.
