Allergic to latex? No more feeling sad that you can't enjoy the fun of balloons because you are someone you know is allergic to latex. We have latex-free balloons!! Yes, it's a thing!
Latex-free balloons come in the form of Mylar Balloons also referred to as foil balloons. They are made of metalised plastic film as well as Qualatex Bubbles, which are made from stretchy plastic and both provide great alternatives to the standard latex balloon.
We can create many different designs without using any latex and without sacrificing creativity, color, and the wonderful awesomeness that balloon decor can bring to an event.
Example of Bubble examples:
No matter if you are having a corporate or school function and trying to get some great color, but concerned about any potential latex allergies in the crowd, or if you're throwing a special celebration and want the space to be beautiful, but know that balloons have been a no-no in the past because of a latex-allergy, we can create balloon decor to please all!
Take a look at a sample of the incredible designs that can be done with balloons WITHOUT latex.
This photos shows red, black, and silver arches that we did for MCPHS (Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences) in Boston for their Fall 2018 Orientation events. They are a latex-free school. We created latex-free balloon decor for them in the form of 6 balloon arches outside on the stairways leading up to the main entrance as well as 2 large 16' arches inside with MCPHS letters floating high up. Great decor in their school colors for a bright and colorful pop without using any latex. It's a win-win for everyone!
The drawbacks to using latex-free balloons are higher costs and a more limited range of options compared to the endless options of latex designs. Mylar balloons are made in many shapes, sizes, and colors, although not as wide an assortment as latex. Balloon Bouquets, Balloon Arches, Balloon Columns, and Balloon Centerpieces as well as Balloon Backdrops, and Balloon Photo Frames are all still possible and look fantastic and shiny and snazzy when complete.
