Kmart sells a range of balloon garlands from a $5 set of fifty balloons to a $90-$10 mega pack of garlands.

The TikToker echoed sentiments expressed by many Kmart moms in home decor Facebook groups – the product is easy to put together but tedious to do on its own.

“They are bigger than you imagine,” wrote one mother. “And certainly a lot easier if you use an air compressor or an electric pump on the balloons.”
