Balloon columns are a popular choice for promotional events and are a versatile way of decorating an event. Available in a wide range of designs and colours.
How tall are the balloon columns? They can be as tall as you would like them to be! A standard balloon column is around 6ft tall.
Indoors or outdoors? The columns are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. If being used outdoors, we will secure the columns to something stable to prevent them from blowing over in the breeze. However, if this isn’t possible, we do have some columns purpose built for outdoor use, that can be used as freestanding displays.
The price of the columns depends on their size and type. The prices below are for our standard balloon columns:
- 6ft column without balloon on top: £45
- 6ft column with either a giant latex balloon or foil on top: £55
The column frames are treated as a hire item. We ask for a £10 security deposit (per column) at the time of booking, which is fully refundable on safe collection of the frames. Please refer to our terms & conditions of hire.
Delivery & collection
We will come to your venue or premises on the day of your event to set up the columns and will return at a pre-arranged time & date to take everything down and retrieve the frames. The tool below provides more information on delivery/collection prices as well as minimum orders.
What to expect
The columns are made up of air-filled latex balloons. In the right (indoor) conditions, the balloons should stay inflated for at least a week, probably more. However, over time the balloons will start to develop a cloudy appearance and begin to look tired, particularly in the summer months, if exposed to sunlight. The balloons will look their best on the day of your event. After that, we can’t offer any guarantee of their longevity if installed for any length of time.
The balloons will not last as long if used outdoors. We would only expect outdoor balloons to last for the day of the event. In the right weather conditions, they may last longer, but this can’t be guaranteed. Exposing your balloons to too much heat will cause them to pop. In the summer months, exposure to sunlight outdoors will soon give your latex balloons a cloudy appearance – the clear latex/confetti balloons and darker coloured latex balloons are most affected by the sun. Light and pastel solid colour balloons are a good choice for summer events.
Caring for your balloons
Your balloon’s favourite environment is:
- to be indoors, at normal room temperature
- away from intense heat, such as radiators
- away from direct sunlight
