Outdoor décor is all the rage right now! During the spring and summer months, more and more events are happening outside. With that, people want to have balloons. We offer multiple kinds of décor options for outdoor events. Almost our whole entire balloon décor range can be either indoors or outdoors, with some limitations.
If you are thinking about having outdoor décor, please remember the following guidelines!
Heat and direct sunlight can make balloons oxidize or even pop more rapidly than normal. Oxidation is the process of when the latex breaks down in the balloons, causing the balloons to have a "matte" like finish. All latex balloons kept outdoors will oxidize.
Putting outdoor décor under shade, a tent, or something along those lines will help your balloons last longer. We highly suggest NOT putting your décor in the direct sunlight.
We suggest if you are using latex balloons to go with lighter colors (whites, matte colors, etc). Darker colors will go down faster in the sun.
Wind and rain can and will affect balloons. If the balloons are not secured properly, the wind can ruin a display. If you have helium balloons, the rain will cause the helium balloons to not float. We suggest doing all air filled designs for outdoor décor, unless you know what the weather will be like the day of your event.
The cold weather does not affect balloons as much as the heat. Foil or Mylar balloons will tend to "go down" in the cooler temperatures.
Use foil or plastic balloons as much as possible for outdoor events, especially in the heat as they will last longer.
Make sure your event location will allow balloons outside.
DO NOT EVER release any helium filled balloons into the air.
MBM is not responsible for the weather after an event is set-up.
If we have a recommendation for your event, please respect it as we know what is best for the balloons and we want them to last as long as possible for you!
