DD birthday/slash Xmas do on Saturday. Was looking at the canisters you do it yourself, anyone used one successfully? Or will it fail miserably and I'll have to beg my local florist to do some?

blush found a thread that said they seem ok, couldn't find on before as I can't spell.

Yes. I've used the kit you can get in ASDA twice. No problems Not as good as professional ones as they only really lasted the day but they are ok.

We used the Asda one last year, it did loads of balloons and the normal balloons lasted a few days. The foil balloon we did lasted 3 weeks

we found it was actually cheaper to go to matalan and get them to do them for us!and they lasted well over a week

pants, I dont have a car and my nearest matalan is 40 minutes bus ride.... I don't think the driver would be to impressed if I got on with a load of balloons grin

haha oh well we found the cheapest one to be from clintons ( but we dnt have an asda) they done a deal where you bought the canister then the balloons were 3 for 2 (not sure if that offers still on or not)

depends how many you want to do (we were doing a big hall for a birthday party)

I've done it a few times. The balloons you get with it are rubbish though, so if you can, buy some foil ones to inflate.
