latex balloonsWhen it comes to party decorations, you have a lot of options -- streamers, banners, and string lights are all common choices. But there's one classic type of decoration that never goes out of style -- balloons! There's just something about bright, colorful balloons that brings out the kid in all of us. So no matter the occasion, having balloons as part of your party decor is always a good idea. So to help you plan for your next party, this article is going to discuss a few common types of balloons you can choose from.

Foil balloons: Foil balloons feature a shiny finish and have endless options for colors, shapes, and sizes. These balloons are typically filled with helium and they retain the helium very well, so they're sure to keep floating for the entire duration of your party. Foil balloons can often feature fun pictures and patterns, allowing you to find balloons to perfectly match the theme of your event. From heart shaped balloons to balloons that say "Happy Birthday!", you'll find what you need when looking at foil balloons.

Latex balloons: If you think of a classic party balloon, you probably think of latex balloons. They're often tear-drop shaped and can come in a wide variety of colors and patterns. These balloons not only look good, but they're even eco-friendly -- harvesting latex actually discourages deforestation because trees that produce latex are left intact and can produce for about 40 years. Latex balloons can be filled with both helium or be treated as air filled balloons, depending on the intended use.

Letter balloons: While balloons are typically round or tear-drop shaped, letter balloons are becoming more and more popular. These are great for events like birthday parties, graduation parties, and even anniversaries because you can spell out "congratulations" -- or any other words or phrases you'd like. Letter balloons can look great floating freely or taped to a wall or backdrop. Because these balloons are perfect for photography, they are sure to be a hit on your guests' Instagram feeds. Choosing letter balloons is an easy way to improve your party decorations.

As you can see, there is a wide variety of balloons you can choose from. So whether you want something simple or something crazy, you're sure to find whatever you're looking for.
