Event set up dates and times are first booked first serve. To avoid disappointment of not having your event date or items available, we suggest you contact us once you have secured your venue.
We’re very quick, but notice is always appreciated!
The more complex your order is, the more time we will need to execute it. We inflate everything as close to your event as possible, so our turn around is very quick, but we do always appreciate as much notice as possible!
Once your order is finalized, an invoice will be emailed to you that can be paid online with a credit card. A 50% deposit is required to secure your reservation. The remaining balance is due no later than a week before your event. Short notice events (7 days or less) require full payment.
For schools, non-profits, and corporations, we understand a check may need to be processed for payment. If a payment cannot be made before the event date, a signed contract will be required.

BALLOON DECOR FAQS
Our Latex Balloons are biodegradable which means they oxidize over time.
Our COLORED Latex Balloons become matte and our CLEAR LATEX BALLOONS will become cloudy within 5 – 12 hours, depending on weather conditions and if treated with HI-FLOAT.
Please make an effort to recycle your balloons once used.
It varies depending on the volume and complexity of your request. Our decor order minimum is $300 Mon-Wed and $500 Thurs-Sunday.
If you’re looking to do a balloon ceiling install, or want to release any balloons onto a ceiling, make sure to check the for smallest of things, such as a chip in the paintwork, nailcan make a balloon pop, so run your hand across and check for any areas which you think could be problematic.
It is also guaranteed that any hot spotlights will pop your balloons.
If your room has spotlights, make sure they have been turned off for 2 hours and are completely cool before placing any balloons.
Do not turn any lights on that will get hot as this will result in your balloons bursting.
Our delivery charge depends on the location of the event and starts at $75. While most decor items includes a standard setup fee, a separate set-up fee may be charge depending on the complexity of the installation and where special rigging, framework or equipment is required. A strike charge is when we return and remove the decor and retrieve our equipment, this is not required for all decor items.
Our standard delivery fee starts at $75 and pickup fee of $100 for standard deliveries/strike. This applies to:
- Events within our preferred service areas.
- Ground level event space with less than 5 steps in stairs and/or 30ft delivery entrance.
- Pickup time before 10pm on the same date of event.
Events outside of service areas, multiply steps, flight of stairs or story with no access elevator, requiring pickup after 11pm will incur an additional pickup fee.
INDOOR – Many air filled balloon designs can last weeks indoors! The longevity of the balloons will depend on the environmental conditions of the space. All of our helium balloons will float for at least 3 days if indoors, but typically much longer!
OUTDOOR – We cannot guarantee that balloons will last any specific amount of time when used outdoor. The sun, heat, wind, rain, etc., affects the lifespan of the balloons.
Yes, only if they are are specialty balloons with custom printed logos or personalized messages. If they are defective or burst during or after inflation, you will still be charged the full amount for that balloon. We can not guarantee the quality nor speculate about the longevity of balloons not provided by us.
Yes! Our latex balloons are made of natural materials and are 100% biodegradable at the same rate as an oak leaf. Mylar (or foil) balloons are NOT biodegradable but are able to be recycled.

We follow a strict code of conduct to ensure a minimal impact on the environment and are committed to educating on the responsible use and disposal of balloons.
Latex balloons are 100% bio- and photo-degradable. Latex comes from rubber trees and is tapped the same way a maple tree is. Rubber trees combat greenhouse gases, slowing global warming. Latex production has a positive environmental impact on the world by helping combat climate change in preventing deforestation and creates sustainable forest resources rather than a one-time benefit of cutting down trees.
Latex breaks down under normal environmental conditions like other natural products. They decompose at about the same rate as an oak leaf and recent biodegradability tests have confirmed that natural rubber balloons biodegrade to approximately 90% within 2 years, under test conditions.
By remaining environmentally conscious, we help preserve the planet while being able to use balloons to make people’s decor dreams a reality.
Foil/Mylar balloons are made of man-made materials. They are not biodegradable so we recommend you try and reuse foil balloons as much as possible. Here’s useful video for how to do it click here
WE DO NOT COORDINATE OR PARTICIPATE IN BALLOON RELEASES
Balloon releases are another way of littering. We are working to educate on the importance of not releasing balloons into the environment and the correct use and disposal of balloons. When using helium inflated balloons, always make sure they are weighted down to prevent them from being inadvertently released…we prefer filling a tiny balloon up with water to create a biodegradable weight.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE ARE DONE WITH BALLOONS?
Whenever possible, we compost our balloons but we would love nothing more than for our balloons to get several uses. If you know of 501(c) non-profit that would benefit from this please email us @email@example.com
We designed our piñatas to be made out of non-toxic and eco-safe materials. We make our own glue out of an edible recipe that has been passed down from generations. Our tissue paper manufacturer has an amazing sustainability report click here
