Balloon Shop

A balloon shop can usually be found within every party supply store.  They have an array of different types of helium balloons.  From traditional latex balloons to the foil looking milar balloons;  they can create the perfect balloon creation for any occasion.  For many occasions balloons are important for decoration or even as gifts and a balloon store had help you create the perfect arrangement of balloons for any occasion.  From weddings, to birthday parties and even graduations;  there are perfect balloon’s to express your feelings or decorate.  Usually the perfect arrangements of balloons include many different colors of latex helium filled balloons and one or two milar balloons that specify the occasion. 

Colorful birthday balloons found at balloon shops  are typically made of natural latex and they can be filled with water, air or helium.  Because they are extremely flexible their volume is adjustable for whatever medium you wish to use.  If you are planning to fill the balloons with water the fuller you fill them the more stretched the latex will become, making them easier to pop.  When balloons are filled with air they do not float, but they can still be used to decorate with netting or they can even be glued or taped to signs and posters.  When they are filled with helium they become lighter than air so they are able to float.  Helium filled balloons typically only retain buoyancy for a day or so.  Helium atoms are able to escape through the pores of the latex so typically they don’t last as long as air filled balloons. 

Milar balloons are the shiny foil balloons that you usually see at balloon shops.  They were invented in the 1970’s and are made from thin and un-strechable plastic films.  They were designed to hold helium better then latex balloons, and because they are not stretchy they can be pre-shaped into almost anything imaginable.  They are extremely light weight and because they are made of plastic they can retain helium for weeks on end.  You can even order personalized milar balloons that are printed with whatever you want in any shape available.  This is why they are perfect birthday balloons.  They can be designed in the exact theme of the party.  They are more personalizable and specific they latex balloons.
