Some historical facts indicate that balloons like those used at parties may date back as far as the ancient Aztecs. It is believed that the Aztecs used the intestinal linings of cats to create balloons that were filled with air and twisted into shapes. These balloon gifts were then placed on the altar next to the foods and other offerings that were then burned in honor of the gods. Balloons have changed a lot since then.

In 1824 a professor at the Royal Institution of London created rubber balloons for use in experiments with hydrogen. Professor Michael Faraday cut out round sheets of rubber and pushes the ends together. Then, by forcing hydrogen into the balloon so that it expanded, Professor Faraday noted that the hydrogen was so light that it forced the balloons to float upwards. By1881 rubber balloons were commonly available, from stores or catalogs.

In 1931 the party balloon was born when the first novelty shaped balloon was created in the form of a cat’s head. Soon, there were all sorts of shapes available. Then balloons became methods of advertising with stamps being placed on them with merchant information. Helium replaced Hydrogen as the gas filling of choice because although Hydrogen made the balloons float higher and maybe even lasted longer, Helium was a great deal safer than Hydrogen.

At some point in the 1970s Mylar and other foil balloons became more common. The shiny and reflective sides when coupled with the bright colors used in the pictures and wordings are much more eye catching than the traditional rubber based ones.

Another use for the rubber or latex type of balloon that symbolizes fun and frolic is the water balloon. The water balloon is notably thinner in composition than the traditional helium balloon. This ensures that the balloon will explode upon impact, often soaking the target. Water balloons, like helium or foil balloons, are meant to be symbols of fun. The bright colors and fun designs can complement any party theme and add a new dimension to your decorations. Balloons can be easily purchased from your favorite party supply store. When picking up your cups, plates and other party accessories, be sure to remember the balloons!
