We’d like to say we know balloons pretty well so we wanted to share a few tips to ensure you make the most of your purchase.
Helium floats due to it being thinner than air, but when it gets cold it makes it dense and therefore heavier than air, causing it to shrivel and sink.
Our bubble balloons are made of a thicker material, meaning they’re a lot more durable and can withstand the cold on their travels.
If you’re ordering our inflated foil balloons please be aware they may look a little less plump on arrival.
Once returned to the warmth, you’ll hear them start to make little popping noises where the helium is expanding the foil balloon back to its rightful state.
Coming into contact with sharp or hot objects
Claws, beaks and any other playfully determined pet
Being dragged through doorways
Getting trapped in car boots or doors
Big or little hands that forget to hold on tight
Some of the nicest celebrations can take part outdoors, so we appreciate that balloons can play a gorgeous part.
Unless the weather is completely calm, your balloon will move with the wind, hide from the rain and pop with the hot sunshine.
Although all of our balloons are weighted, we cannot guarantee that they will be able to sustain outdoor climates.
Balloon ceilings are some of our favourite to do, so we understand why you’d want to transform room in the same way.
However, we have had our fair share of unfortunate occasions where hundreds of balloons have been released onto the ceiling, only to pop.
Yes, it was as devastating as it sounds!
If you’re looking to do a balloon ceiling yourself, or want to release any balloons onto a ceiling, make sure to check the surface before placing them.
The smallest of things, such as a chip in the paintwork, can 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 and your guests jumping out of their skin.
Our latex balloons are biodegradable which means they oxidize over time.
Our full colored latex balloons become matte and our clear confetti balloons will become cloudy within 10 – 12 hours.
Please make an effort to recycle your balloons once used.
Bubble balloons our mighty Bubbles will be in tip top condition for up to 10 days and will stay floating for up to 4 weeks,
however they do start to look a bit sorry for themselves around the 2-week mark!

3 Foot Latex Larg Balloons our Giant Balloons float for 24 – 36 hours
3 Foot Latex Giant Confetti Balloons - our Giant Confetti Balloons float for 24 – 36 hours, however they begin to cloud after 12 – 24 hours
