"Just had my daughter's first birthday party with this theme, and it looked fabulous! The Eiffel towers were adorable, the balloons gorgeous, everything was perfect. Only problem was that even in setting up the balloons some of them started popping randomly. We did not over-inflate them, nothing touched them. We managed to get most of them up for the party so it turned out okay, but I splurged on those balloons (you can get pretty much the same balloons for SO much cheaper elsewhere) and to have them pop when you so much as look at them wrong, that's not okay. After the party was done and the kids were playing we lost half the balloons in the first 5 minutes. Yes, kids were playing with them. But these kids play with balloons all the time, most balloons last at least an hour with this kind of play. When it's just my two kids at home we can get a balloon to last a week or more. Not these balloons, the kids weren't even around when they started popping the first time. Two packages couldn't even be blown up, they had weak spots all over them and would explode before they were halfway inflated. Glad I had lots of extras so the party still turned out fabulous.
All in all, I would absolutely order this theme again, just not the balloons. The mylar balloons were fine, just not the latex."
