Setting Up Your Thanksgiving Inflatables
Once you’ve decided to use inflatables for Thanksgiving decorations for the special season, there are a few things you need to consider like the size, shape, and style of the creation you are going to get. But where do you start? Well, it starts with making an order for inflatables from an inflatable manufacturer. With so many to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect ones to make your home festive for the holiday. However, we recommend you only go for reputable manufacturers with a track record of delivering high-quality custom inflatables.
Here are a few steps to step up your Thanksgiving inflatables.
Step One: Order Your Inflatables
Before anything else, you need to get your inflatables. After all, they are the stars of the show. To do this, you first have to decide on a Thanksgiving theme for the celebration. Do you want a traditional-themed celebration or do you prefer a modern vibe? If you have a specific theme in mind for your Thanksgiving decorations, make sure to choose inflatables that match. You can find inflatables with turkeys, pilgrims, cornucopias, and more. Choose one that fits into the ambiance in the atmosphere you want to create.
Another thing to consider is the size of your home and yard. Make sure you choose inflatables that are the right size for your space. You don’t want them to be too big and take over your yard, but you also don’t want them to be too small and get lost in the crowd. We recommend you measure them with tape so you have specific dimensions you can give to the inflatable manufacturer.
When you know what you want and in what size, you can proceed to the inflatable manufacturer to make your order
Step Two: Choose the Right Location
While waiting for your inflatable to be ordered, it would be best to decide how and where you would install it in your home and yard. For starters, you should find a level surface – somewhere the inflatable can sit without any risk of tilting or leaning. Also ensure that wherever you choose is free of sharp objects, bushes, or any overhanging branches that could damage the inflatable.
You should also consider visibility. You want to place your inflatable where your guests can easily see it. Ensure that other outdoor structures do not prevent guests from having a clear sight of the inflatable.
It is also important to consider the proximity to the power source when setting up Thanksgiving inflatables. Some inflatables rely on electricity to operate their blowers or pumps, so it’s best to choose a location that is near an outdoor power source.
Step Three: Unbox and Inspect Your Inflatable
Your Thanksgiving inflatable will arrive in a few days, but it may take longer if you order a custom design. When it arrives, carefully remove it from its packaging and spread it out. Inspect it for any tears or holes. Identifying damage early will prevent disappointment on the day of your event and allow you to contact the manufacturer for a replacement or repair in a timely manner.
Step Four: Inflate the Inflatable
Now it is time to inflate your inflatable. Find the air inlet and connect it to an air pump or blower. Make sure the connection is airtight to prevent air leaks during inflation. Then, turn on the pump and watch it inflate.
As the structure inflates, monitor it to ensure that it is filling evenly and standing upright. Be prepared to reposition it to prevent it from tilting over. After inflation, check for creases or wrinkles and smooth them out gently.
Step Five: Anchor the Inflatables
To prevent inflatables from blowing away in the wind, use stakes or weights to secure them in place. This will anchor them to the ground. Many giant inflatable structures come with tether ropes and stakes to keep them in place.
Step Six: Adjust and Apply Finishing Touches
Step back and take a look at your inflatable. Is it positioned well? If not, make any necessary adjustments to ensure your inflatable stands tall and faces the right direction.
Now that your Thanksgiving inflatable is set up and in place, it is time to add some finishing touches. You could add some LED lights to improve the ambiance at night. Be sure to clean up around the inflatable to remove any scrap material.
Your Thanksgiving inflatable is ready to spread the holiday cheer.
You now know how to set up your own Thanksgiving inflatable. Remember to get the right size, inspect it, secure it, and position it carefully, and you will be well on your way to a great Thanksgiving display.
Have a happy and festive Thanksgiving!
