Balloons 101

We use the finest quality balloons.

Our latex balloons are 100% biodegradable and decompose at the rate of an oak leaf. Our balloon weights are created in house and also biodegradable.

We have a beautiful collection of mylar balloons. Unfortunately, mylar balloons are not biodegradable, but they can be reused or brought back to us to recycle.

Picking up?

You can pick up a grab & go garland days before your event. We preserve your balloons in a bag that will keep them fresh until you’re ready to install.

Helium balloons can be picked up the day before your event. If this is a surprise, please be sure your balloons are free to float in an air conditioned environment. They do not like to be restricted and/or stored in the garage, laundry room, hot closet, outdoors, etc…

Please empty your trunk and/or back seats to make room for your balloons. Our clients are always surprised how big our balloons are… You’ll need the space;)

Summer Note:

  • Balloons will pop in this summer heat. If your car is not cool, you’ll want to run your air conditioner for 10-15 minutes until your car is ready for your balloons.

Other no’s…

  • hot or sharp objects — watch out for brick and concrete. Run your hand along the brick/concrete to check the temperature and for any possible sharp areas.
  • yanked or being dragged through doorways or car doors
  • rough handling (kids can be hard on balloons)
  • pets
  • extreme temperatures
  • wind


  • Outdoor Installations: Outdoor installs are amazing for photos but come with risks! Balloons do not do well in direct sunlight, heat, and wind. Imagine sitting in direct sunlight on a hot day… We wouldn’t last very long in the shade on a hot day, much less in direct sunlight. Please keep this in mind as we cannot control a sudden gust of wind, extreme temperatures, animals, and rough handling by kids/adults. If outdoors, we recommend installing in an area shaded from the sun/wind, but for your overall satisfaction, an indoor installation is the safest bet.
  • Please note that balloons will oxidize with exposure to air, creating a matte appearance. 
  • Temperature affects balloons. They expand in the heat and “deflate” in cold temps. This is temporary. Your balloons may look less plump, but once returned to the warmth, you’ll hear your balloon fill back up to its normal state.
