I think the people I got them from had made it from one of the kits you can get on E-Bay. I wanted to deflate some and save them but the knots were incredibly tight. I did manage to deflate the big purple one, though

I went out and got another balloon arch yesterday and was able to untie all the balloons.

I was looking through the free ads. and a lady was advertising a small balloon arch for free, otherwise She was going to pop it. It was a home made one that was used for a kids party. There was something about the 'Pop' word that really turned me on. I enquired about it and said I may be able to pick it up, later. As though She was taunting me, she said that she would hang on to it for me, otherwise she was going to pop it. The excitement was intense and my heart started racing and my mind was spinning. I just had to get them before she popped them. I was almost pleading with her to hang on to them and I said I would come and get them. It was some distance away and I hurriedly set off to her house. When I got there, She was waiting with them in her doorway, thankfully still inflated (only one of them was popped). She wasn't that bad looking, though the balloons were only around 7 inch ones. It didn't matter, though. It was such a joy to get them home intact and such a relief to strip naked and ride those lovely rescued balloons. It was so wonderful to get them and them not end up as shredded bits of rubber in a trashcan. I have been sleeping with several of them under the quilt cover. It just feels so good with them still intact at the side of me.

I suppose you can call repairing a popped balloon, 'rescue'.
It is almost like giving the balloon a second chance, at least for a few more weeks.
