Here at Ballroom Balloons, we create tons of outdoor balloon decorations. In almost every way you can imagine, inside and outside are like day and night. But, most of it comes down to the weather. First of all, regardless of temperature, wind conditions, humidity, and precipitation, there is the air itself. Outside air invariably has more particulate matter which adheres to latex balloons. Be it pollen or pollutants, a white patina forms on latex balloons, virtually eliminating their shiny quality. This is also part of the natural beginning of biodegradation of the rubber that latex balloons are made from (see: ballroomballoons.com/faq.html).
Okay, let’s talk about the weather. Heat makes latex balloons expand and pop unless the balloons are pre-stretched and down-sized. Wind can make arches look like rolling waves and boquets appear as random floating balloons. Lots of wind can blow just about any decoration totally away. Rain will saturate balloons and make them come down.
So, what’s the solution? Frame it! Tune in tomorrow for the exciting conclusion to this post. Need more balloon info now? Please visit: ballroomballoons.com/about.html for some very fun facts.
