Planning a Party (as Told by GIFs)

Planning a party can be stressful. And the bigger the party, the more stressful it is. Sometimes it's nice to look back at the journey and laugh about the moments of panic, the late night projects and the good times shared. If you're still in planning mode, remember to breath deeply and laugh. Your party will be great!

The Party Planning Process


1. The moment you find out (or remember) that a birthday is coming up and you have a spark of inspiration, you tell everyone! Much to your delight, they love the idea and even add to it, which makes you feel pretty awesome.

2. You delegate tasks and start planning. Where do you start? Online, of course! You scour the internet for all kinds of great decorating ideas to fit your theme.

3. Then, you run into your first road bump. As you begin shopping, you realize some great ideas cost much more than you thought.

4.After reviewing several DIY sites, you realize it'll be easy and fun to make some of the decorations yourself. Plus, you'll save money! WIN!

5. That is, until the results look nothing like the ornate napkin holders you were trying to replicate.

... are you sure you followed the instructions?

6. The day finally arrives and everyone is working hard to make sure all runs smoothly. Ironically, it's a chaotic time.

7. As usual, someone forgets something major (like the cake), which causes panic.

8. However, the show must go on! And despite a few hiccups, you put on a great party that everyone loves and enjoys!

Helium Cylinder Refills

At Helium Xpress, we can and do refill helium cylinders. However, there are certain criteria that must be met for us to legally and safely do so.

Please note if you purchased a Balloon Time kit from a store such as Party City or Walmart, these tanks are disposable and cannot be refilled. If you have an industrial cylinder, please continue to determine your refill eligibility.

Who Owns the Cylinder? This may sound like a trick question, but it's not. The answer to this question provides us with valid and important information regarding whether or not we can refill your cylinder. You might believe you are the owner of the cylinder because it's been on your property for as a long as you can remember, it has a self-made tag with your business name on it or because you personally paid for the cylinder. However, in some cases, it's still not your cylinder. This is why it's very important to purchase helium cylinders from a trusted source. Let us explain.

The HX Loyalty ProgramHow does it work? Well, in a nut shell, you buy a small cylinder from us and we'll continue to refill it at a reduced cost. If you were to bring us an outside-sourced small helium cylinder, we could fill it for $57. However, if you purchase one of our small cylinders, we…

Cylinder Sizes

If you plan to be mobile while using your cylinder, make sure it's something you're comfortable transporting. Will you be able load it into a vehicle unassisted? If not, will someone be available to help you? Do you plan on transporting it a lot or just occasionally? These are just a few questions to ask yourself when deciding on a cylinder size. Consider the following information to assist in your decision-making.
