Choose Latex Instead of Mylar Balloons for Winter Parties: Here's Why!

Mylar balloons don't like cold weather. Even brief trips outside (transporting balloons to and from the car) can cause shrinkage in the cold. Balloons will expand again once they are indoors, but they may not make it that far. 

I learned this the hard way when my daughter's balloons shrunk so much that they escaped from the ribbon that was tied around them and blew away. Try latex balloons instead in the winter. The cold may make them cloudy in color but they will not shrink as much.
