Celebrations made fun with Balloon Time

The children love balloons and for their birthdays it has become a practice for them to have the house decorated with balloons. We normally blow them up or use a balloon pump resulting in the balloons not really floating but looking something like this.

I know we could get them done in a shop but there is no way that we can have 20 balloons bobbing about in the car. Some would surely pop.


I have always had misgivings about getting helium tanks to fill the balloons at home but I do like the idea of being able to actually decorate the house with balloons and having them bobbing about around the house make the celebration so much more lovely.

Last week, we celebrated Hubs birthday and Mother’s Day and it was the ideal celebration for Balloon Time. I received a beautiful silvery scarf and Hubs got a lot of birthday pressies!

I was a bit worried about inflating the balloons indoors at first but I needn’t have worried at all. It is so easy to do.



The Balloon Time kit comes with a gas tank, 30 balloons in different colours and white plastic ribbon (the kind you can twirl).


All you need to do is turn the valve counter clockwise.

Position the balloon over the nozzle and hold tightly. Then press down to inflate to the size you like.

It really is that easy.

The tank is lightweight and is easy to store. Once you are done with the balloons you require, you can keep it for later by closing the valve.

We had a wonderful celebration made better with Balloon Time.



I quite like them just floating around and having the ribbon hanging down.



I do love this one with the teddy bear. (It would also make a wonderful gift)


Balloon Time is easy to buy (available at Tesco and Asda) and you can even it order it online and have it delivered. I ordered mine from Asda. It is the perfect kit for getting those balloons blown up without the huffing and puffing. After all no party is a party without the balloons…and cake!


Balloon Time retails at a starting price of £22. The tanks cannot be refilled but they are recyclable.

We also used one of our balloons to send a present to Grandma. You can read more about it here.
