Balloons!

One of our most favorite products, and one that makes us unique, is our awesome balloons! We have a huge selection of specialty balloons and can make a bouquet that will be sure to brighten someones day!!

One thing we use that makes our balloons extra special, is a product called hi-float. It is a liquid solution that we put into our balloons before blowing them up. It coats the inside of the balloon and then dries, helping keep the helium inside 25-30% longer than it normally would. A balloon without hi-float will stay up for a day or so. With hi-float, it will usually last 2-4 days (we have had some reports of balloons lasting for weeks!!). All of our bouquets come with hi-float, and it only costs a little extra for single balloons or per dozen.

Some of you may not know, but balloons are very sensitive to temperature. They should always be kept in a climate controlled area, otherwise float time will dramatically decrease. We recommend customers transport in a well air-conditioned car in the warm weather, and a heated car in cold weather. Also, mylar balloons tend to shrink a little in cold weather, and expand in warm weather. We fill the balloon with this in mind. If you take it out in the cold and it shrinks, it should return to normal size when it gets back into room temperature. Pearlized and metallic balloons usually have a shorter float time - even with hi-float - because of the material they are made of. 

The party girls helped me find out the gender of my last baby! They filled a 3 foot black balloon with the color (pink) confetti, and tied a cute collar onto it made of pink and blue tissue. We had pre-odered it and simply called and told them what color to do on the way home from our ultrasound. Of course I found out at the ultrasound, I couldn't wait!! But if you chose to find out with everyone else, have the ultrasound technician put the gender in an envelope for you and take it to the store. We will fill it for you and you can be surprised along with everyone else! We picked ours up and took it right to the gender reveal party, here is the footage:


Aside from specialty bouquets, we also do topiaries, arches, single balloons, by the dozen, and mylars. If you want something you don't see, ask us! We love learning new techniques and trends! 

Here are a few examples of the awesome things we can make for you! Remember you can always customize colors and prints! If you have questions on pricing or anything else, please call the store and talk to one of our balloon experts! 801-768-3549

Balloon Tip!

We recently had a birthday in the family - and wanted to share a super easy tip!  Are you ready for it?  (It seems like a no-brainer, but many people don't think of it!)  
**If you are getting balloons to decorate for a party or to surprise the special someone (especially if they are little!) it is a great idea to tie the balloons at varying heights and spread them throughout the room, instead of just tying them in 2 or 3 bunches.**


It makes the room look fuller, and especially for kids, it makes them feel like the whole house is just full of balloons! You can get small candy to tie them to, tie to doorknobs, or even just grab some toys or items already laying around. 


We also got 2 dozen plain balloons (no helium) and blew them up to just lay around the floor.


We tied one birthday present to a few balloons so he could have it all day, and the rest of the gifts were reserved for the birthday party that night. 


Also, this was for a 4 year old - who definitely doesn't care about color schemes! We picked some fun prints (paw prints, pirates, farm animals, dinosaurs, polka-dots, etc) instead of all plain colors or all Happy Birthday prints - and he LOVED them!

Check out our website or store for our huge assortment of balloons and party stuff (isn't that banner cute??)

Happy Decorating!
