Can you deliver balloons inflated?
Sorry! We don't offer a delivery service for inflated balloons. All balloon orders are shipped flat uninflated ready for inflation on the day of your celebration, or select from our inflated balloon page for click & collect from our Brookvale warehouse.
How long will balloons float with helium?
Helium inflated 28cm latex balloons will usually float for around 8-12 hours. Jumbo 90cm latex balloons will usually float for 2-3 days. Foil balloons will usually float for 3-5 days before slowly deflating. Adding Hi-Float to your balloons can increase the float time. Do NOT use Hi-Float in confetti filled or double layered latex balloons. Please note float time is variable & can be altered by extreme temperatures.
What do I do if my balloon pops?
Balloons are delicate items that can pop easily. Avoid over inflation, sharp objects, & very hot or cold objects. If concerned about your balloon popping we suggest ordering spares.
How do I get confetti to stick in my confetti balloon?
In most cases the confetti will pool in the bottom of your balloon. We recommend using 20% air and 80% helium to help the confetti to stick. Some helium tanks do allow for some static. To create static rub the inflated balloon with your hand & roll the balloon for the confetti to stick. This process may need to be repeated during your event. Bare in mind we cannot guarantee the confetti will stick when inflating with helium.
How far in advance can I create my balloon garland?
If using air (not helium) we recommend creating your balloon garland a few days in advance. Please allow plenty of time for inflation & building the garland! Balloon garlands will often last for weeks after your celebration!
Can you swap balloon colours that come in garland kits?
We don't swap shades in our ready made kits, however we can recommend simply adding individual colours from our balloon pages. Alternately if looking for a specific coloured garland we can assist with recommending which balloons can be purchased to create a similar look.
Are balloons environmentally friendly?
Latex balloons are 100% biodegradable. Latex breaks down under normal environmental conditions like other natural products. Foil balloons however are not biodegradable. For more information visit balloonartistsaustralia.com.au.
How much confetti do I need?
For a confetti toss at a wedding celebration we recommend approx 10g of confetti per person or to scatter on a large table. To fill a jumbo 90cm balloon with confetti we recommend approx 7-10g each.
Can you recommend a stylist, cake decorator or balloon specialist in my area?
