Direct Sunlight/Heat: We recommend choosing a shaded place for the installation of your BAB garland as direct sunlight for more than 30 minutes can cause parts of the garland to pop if the weather is over 80 degrees or with no cloud coverage. Our darker colors soak up the heat more so if you want your garland to go outside, consider choosing lighter colors. If you have clear balloons in your garland, those can turn cloudy thanks to good ole humidity and science.
BABs Outdoor Disclaimer
Most of our products don’t experience problems but we want to make sure we inform you how to best maintain your BABs item outdoors, as heat, direct sunlight and wind are not ideal!
Direct Sunlight/Heat: We recommend placing the BABs in shaded areas, as direct sunlight for short periods of time can cause BABs to expand beyond their limits and pop. We don’t recommend they stay outside in direct sunlight for more than 30 minutes if the weather is over 80 degrees or with no cloud coverage. If left outside, clear confetti BABs can turn cloudy thanks to humidity and science. Darker balloon colors soak up the heat more so you may want to consider lighter colors.
Wind: Our BAB weights are not made to withstand medium to strong winds. If left unattended, the BABs can potentially fall off tables or structures they are placed on if not tied down to a permanent object. We will take precaution by double tying our weights but recommend you have additional weigh-down options on hand. We’ve seen customer use pails with sand, bricks, sandbags, etc. to prevent mid-party mishaps. If your party is in a grassy area with soft enough ground, we can provide you with one stake per BAB if you would like, just let us know! If you are considering having BABs in your pool, keep in mind the elements and certain water features could cause popping, movement and tangled strings; in turn, potentially getting caught in your pumps and drainage. Typically, if there is minimal wind and the pool is in a shaded area, this is not a problem at all. If it is a windy day or if your pool is in direct sunlight (in summer months), we will advise moving the balloons inside to avoid any of this from happening! Big Ass Balloons is not responsible for any damages after our delivery has been completed.
PLEASE NOTE: We will be unable to provide any refunds if any balloons pop after we deliver them safely to your event.
Garlands Outdoor Disclaimer
Wind: Our garlands are not made to withstand medium to strong winds. We will take precaution by attaching your garland in as many spots as possible but strong guts of wind can shift the garland during your event. If installed near gardens, light fixtures, brick walls, wooden structures, etc. parts of the garland could bump against them from a strong breeze and cause some of the garland to pop.
PLEASE NOTE: We will be unable to provide any refunds if garlands balloons pop after we have completed installation at your event.
