Birthday balloons make a big impression in any size, shape or colour. You may want several dozen helium-filled balloons for a surprise party, or select one or two balloons to accompany a flower arrangement. In either case, ‘happy birthday balloons’ (which is also known as ‘luftballone geburstag‘ in the German language) represent a special occasion and always delight the recipient.
Birthdays balloons are often presented in a “bouquet” of up to 15 balloons and will elicit a “Wow” from guests. They are a combination of mylar (the foil-like balloons) and latex. Typically the mylar balloon has “happy birthday” messaging, while the remaining latex balloons are in solid, complimentary colours.
Having this mixture is not just festive. It looks professionally planned, especially when the colours match the rest of your party decor. Bouquets are usually secured with ribbon at the bottom and start at around $20 dollars.
If a balloon bouquet isn’t the type of statement you’re looking for, you can also get one or two mylar birthday balloons as part of a flower arrangement. In small or large sizes, they’re a festive addition to a flower bouquet without taking up as much space. Similarly, you can include a birthday balloon with a chocolate lover’s gift basket, stuffed animal or flower cake.
A new innovation is self-inflating balloons. When transporting a dozen helium-filled balloons isn’t feasible, or you don’t want to blow them up on your own, you can now send a large mylar balloon that inflates automatically when an envelope or gift box is opened. It makes a great surprise and includes a base that anchors the balloon while it floats gently on its own.
