Whether you’re throwing a party, setting up for a wedding or creating a magnificent display to celebrate the opening of a new store, balloons are the perfect companion to ensure that your event looks great and fills everyone with a sense of celebration.
But how many balloons are the right amount? 30? 50? 100? And how do you know what size of helium canister to get to make sure you have enough to fill all of those balloons? You don’t want to be left standing in the venue with only half the balloons inflated and you’re all out of helium.
So, here’s our guide for filling up the right number of balloons. First, here’s what you need to make sure you have enough helium for 100 balloons.
How many balloons you can inflate with a helium tank will depend on how big the balloons are, as well as whether they are standard latex balloons or large, foil balloons.
If you’re trying to inflate 100, 9-inch standard latex balloons, you will need approximately between 25 to 27 cubic feet of helium.
However, for bigger balloons like 10-inch latex ones you may only be able to inflate about 90 balloons with this amount of helium, dropping to around 25 balloons if you opt for larger, 14-inch latex balloons.
For foil balloons, such as 18-inch foil balloons, this amount of helium will likely only inflate around 50. So, if your balloons are foil ones, you may have to double the amount of helium you would typically buy to fill up 100 standards latex balloons.
At Fill n’ Away, our helium canisters can be bought as a set that includes balloons. We have three options for sizes including the helium canister 100 balloons kit. This kit comes with 100 balloons and two helium canisters that are ready to fill every single one. There’s even the option for your canisters do be delivered in your very own branded box.
How Much Helium Do You Need to Fill 50 Balloons?
If you’re throwing a smaller event but still want to impress with balloons, then 50 balloons are a great amount to get that party in full swing.
For 50 standard 9-inch latex balloons, you need around 14 cubic feet of helium. Again, for larger latex balloons you will only be able to blow up a smaller about. This amount of helium will fill around 45 10-inch latex balloons, 28 11-inch latex balloons and just 14 14-inch balloons. For 18-inch foil balloons, 14 cubic feet of helium will fill about 30.
As well as our 100 balloon and helium canister kit, our next size is the helium canister 50 balloons kit. It’s ideal for creating eye-catching balloon displays that are certain to impress. With this kit, you’ll get one helium canister and 50 colourful balloons.
How Much Helium Do You Need to Fill 30 Balloons?
For a small-scale event where you still want to impress with décor but perhaps are on a tighter budget, you might want to opt for just 30 balloons, still enough to make a colourful splash without breaking the bank.
For 30 balloons, approximately 8 cubic feet of helium is needed. This should be enough helium to fill 30 standard 9-inch latex balloons. This amount of helium will only fill about 25 10-inch latex balloons, 15 12-inch latex balloons, and just 8 14-inch latex balloons. For 18-inch foil balloons, this much helium would only fill around 18.
