There are 5 blue balloons and 5 yellow balloons. Their height is "medium 28 cm".
They will be inflated so that their minimun diameter 21 cm and their

They sell balloons with a diameter of 28 cm and 35 cm height ( the MEDIUM 28 ).
They are sold by 27 balloons of plain color at roughly 15F. The exact
references are :
Medium diameter 28 Yellow : PB930/90C
Medium diameter 28 Blue dull : PB930/90F
Medium diameter 28 Blue bright : PB930/90H
You can find them also in Pink (PB930/90A), Green (PB930/90B),
Orange (PB930/90D), White (PB930/90G), Red (PB930/90L),
en Purple (PB930/90M) and for your parties, you can find
them heart shaped ( CUORE in italian ) with various sizes and also in

here is our trick :
It's a success each time, if not, go to another restaurant!
