Can I call you?

In the event, we need to clarify details, we'll ask to schedule a phone conversation.
Can you meet with me in-person?
We have rarely found an in-person meeting to be necessary for us to do our job. If we do need to meet, it's more beneficial to meet at the venue where we can take measurements and photos to help us better design your balloon decor for the event space.

Yes, Delivery & Setup costs are calculated per event. Delivery fees vary by location and factors such as traffic, tolls, parking, and time of day.

Can I get latex-free balloons?
Absolutely! We're happy to give you options that do NOT involve latex so you can enjoy awesome balloon decor at your event!
Will you inflate balloons I bought?
For balloon decor creation, we only use the balloons we provide as we know and trust the quality and performance. In the event, we make an exception and agree to inflate the balloons you've purchased, it is your responsibility to get those balloons to us prior to the event in a timely manner via mailing to our address. Understandably, we are unable to guarantee the quality of any balloons not purchased and/or provided by us. We charge the same price for the balloons we provide as balloons you provide to us. Full payment before inflation is required. If the balloons are defective and pop during or after inflation, no refund is given.
Once you pay the non-refundable date reservation fee, we add your event to our calendar. When your order is paid-in-full, we purchase all the supplies needed to complete your job and make the necessary logistical arrangements. If your order is canceled more than 30 days prior to your event, we will credit your account for the amount paid and put it toward your next event decor order with us, however, no refund will be issued. If your order is canceled 30 days or less less from the event date, no credit or refund will be issued and your event date will be released from our calendar.
Balloon Release Policy:
We are magical moment lovers who care about celebrating life as well as the earth and the environment and about doing our part to be responsible and educate. We are committed to the best balloon practices both for our clients and the world we live in. As a proud member of PEBA (Pro-Environment Balloon Alliance), we are taking a stand against the deliberate release of balloons into our environment and are working to educate the general public about the positive environmental side of balloons as well as the correct use and disposal of balloons to reduce liter in our environment and the harm to any animals in the wild.
Outdoor Balloon Policy:
While we love doing outdoor events for our clients, we cannot guarantee the quality or duration of any balloons that are placed/used outdoors. We make every attempt to have your décor looking its very best at the time it’s delivered. We use only professional supplies and quality materials, however, weather is unpredictable, and wind, humidity & heat especially take their toll on balloons.
