Please note that we, unfortunately, will be unable to issue refunds or honor returns based on balloon breakage as a result of improper usage.

Can I add to my order once it has been placed?

Unfortunately not. All customer orders are passed directly to our warehouse for shipping. 

Are the balloons delivered filled with helium?

Our balloons are not supplied filled with helium. However, we recommend that customers visit a reputable helium supplier to ensure balloons are inflated using high-quality helium.

How long do the helium balloons float for?

Recommendations state that latex balloons when filled with helium, should last up to 8 hours. Foil balloons, however, can last much longer than this - for a few days.

Do you do custom and personalized orders?

Please send us a message and we will have something custom-made for you.

Cheaper helium alternatives?

Helium is very expensive, but there are other options for making a dazzling balloon display! Balloons look just as fab hung from the ceiling using clear fishing line, this is very effective with large 36" balloons like ours.

How do I store unused, uninflated balloons?

Balloons can last for years if stored properly. Please keep balloons away from continuous exposure to extreme temperatures. If exposed to sunlight for a period of time, you may refrigerate till the balloons cool off, before inflating. Likewise, do not inflate frozen or stiff balloons. Allow to naturally warm up before inflating.
