What to expect with outdoor balloon decor

Latex balloons are a natural product and will degrade in an outdoor setting fairly quickly, especially in our extreme heat and humidity. 
We recommend only using outdoor balloons in the late fall through early spring and even then with some caveats. See below
Sun, Heat & Humidity (aka Florida)
When planning to position balloon decor outside on hot sunny days, you need to be aware of several factors. 
  • Balloons will swell and expand in the heat and may cause them to pop.
  • Darker balloon colors will absorb heat and pop the fastest and are not recommended. 
  • Balloons will oxidize and lose their clarity.
  • Humidity and dew will make the latex stick together thus causing friction popping due to wind movement
  • Balloons will not usually last more than a few hours or day in an acceptable condition.

Better conditions if they must be outdoors

  • Lighter colors will fair better
  • Balloons that remain in the shade and will fair better
  • We can pay more and use the next size up balloon to undersize them even more than normal and this will help.
  • Foil balloons will fair better and we can underinflate to accommodate for massive expansion.

We do our best to minimize the popping by pre stretching and underinflating. This along with needing sturdier structures and bases is why outdoor deco costs more. We also use the high quality professional latex balloons. However, due to their nature we do not guarantee how long any outdoor balloon decor will last outdoors. We will not come back to replace any popped balloons.
