Ah, what’s a birthday, or any other party for that matter, without balloons? It would be quite the dull affair, if you ask me. No, you can’t argue with me on this one because it’s true; whether it be a 5 year old’s exciting birthday bash, a Sweet 16 party, or even to simply pass the time with your pals by breathing in the helium and speaking in hilariously high-pitched tones (please do not do this excessively because death by balloon is not a nice way to go).
Since helium isn’t exactly available at your friendly neighbourhood kade, here are a few places you can check out if you are looking to get your hands on some helium balloons!
