WE WISH THEY WOULD LAST FOREVER

uses the highest grade balloons manufactured, however, even the world's best
balloons are fragile products with a relatively short life span. When ordering
or sending balloons, expect to enjoy them for 2 days if used
indoors, and less than a full day if used outdoors. Under ideal conditions,
balloons can float much longer, but our guarantee is limited to 2 days. More
Cold air, hot air, high
humidity, changing barometric pressure, high altitudes, and moving air from
fans and vents will reduce balloon float times. The float times posted on our
site are the maximum to be expected. Changing conditions mean that on some occasions
balloons may float for only one day, and on other occasions the same balloons
may float for many days.
following standard float times apply to balloon-friendly indoor environments.
TIMES FOR MYLAR BALLOONS
In optimum environments, mylar (foil) balloons will remain full and taught for
2 days. Air-conditioned air may cause these balloons to shrivel, but they will
return to a normal state when exposed to warmer air.
Hi-Float is a non-toxic sealant used inside of the balloon. It is effective
only when used indoors, out of direct sunlight, and when not exposed to breezes
created by fans, open windows, or air-conditioning. In ideal conditions
Hi-Float will extend float times as follows: 11-inch latex: 2 Days 16-inch
latex: 2 Days

There are no float time
guarantees for a delivery made to or received by a third party, such as a front
desk staff person, doorman, concierge, mail room, or loading dock. There are
also no float time guarantee when balloons are moved from the original delivery
location to a secondary location.
Once the balloons have
been delivered to the designated delivery location, The delivery is considered successfully
EFFECTS OF SUNLIGHT, AIR CONDITIONING, AND WIND
On hot days, in direct
sunlight, balloons may pop within an hour. The same result can occur indoors if
balloons are exposed to direct sunlight through windows.
Very cool environments may cause helium molecules to shrink, reducing the size
and float time of balloons.
A constant breeze passing around a balloon will increase the speed at which
helium molecules escape through the wall of the balloon, resulting in reduced
float time. Keep balloons away from any type of breeze for maximum float time.
Static and invisible fibers on ceilings can cause balloons to pop. Allow your
balloons to remain tied to an anchor for at least five hours before releasing
them to the ceiling. This allows the balloons to shrink enough so that the skin
becomes thicker and tougher. After five hours, take 2-3 balloons and rake them
across the ceiling. If these do not pop, it should be safe to release
additional balloons. If they do pop, allow additional time and run the test
A. Do not breathe helium from a balloon. Helium is not toxic nor flammable, but
breathing it can result in asphyxiation (loss of consciousness due to
B. Do not release mylar (foil) balloons outdoors. Power failures can result if
these balloons become entangled in electric lines.
C. Popped latex balloons present a choking hazard for small children. Do not
leave small children unaccompanied with latex balloons.

will arrive or remain in a specific formation. However, they can easily be
untied from their anchor and re-arranged as desired. Illustrations on bouquet
products attempt to show most of the front view of each balloon used in the
bouquet. It may not accurately represent how the bouquet will appear in
