  • Assorted Color Balloons (144 pcs) on Amazon.com
  • Dollar Stores – Most local dollar stores carry basic party supplies, including latex balloons.
  • Big Box Stores – Large chain stores usually carry balloons, but check the prices and the number of balloons in a package. Dollar stores may be more or less expensive.
  • Party Stores/Specialty Vendors – If you’re looking for very specific colors, larger balloons, specialty balloons (water balloons, punch balloons, twisting modelling balloons, balloons with ears, etc.), or fresh stock (newer balloons that are less likely to pop), a party supply store or online vendor may be your best bet.
  • Whoopee Cushion – Although it’s not a typical latex balloon for balloon faces, it’s kind of fun to have around to compare the whoopee cushion sound to the sound of a normal balloon whooshing away.

 Markers

  • Permanent Markers/King Size Permanent Marker, Black, 4-Pack on Amazon.com
  • Washable Markers Crayola Broad Line Ultraclean Washable Assorted Markers (12 Count) on Amazon.com
  • Dollar Stores – Most local dollar stores carry permanent and washable markers with tips of various shapes and sizes. Generic markers (especially washable markers) may or may not work well on latex balloons. It’s best to test one to see how quickly it actually dries on the balloon.
  • Big Box Stores – Large chain stores usually carry brand name and generic markers. Comparison shop at dollar stores to find the best price.
  • Office Supply Stores – Office Supply stores always carry quality markers.

  • Tying Strings and Strips – Used mostly with helium-inflated balloons, strings and line can also be used to decorate balloon sculptures. Strips also make hanging simple.
  • Arches and Columns – If you really want to sculpt and decorate with balloons, arch and column structures are available.
