How well do BABs do outdoors?

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 item 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 you have confetti in your garland those can turn cloudy if left outside thanks to humidity and science. Darker colors soak up the heat more so if you want your garland to go outside, 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. For garlands, 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 BABs to pop.

PLEASE NOTE: We will be unable to provide any refunds if any balloons pop after we deliver them safely to your event.
