Giant balloons make fantastic decor and will certainly add the WOW factor to your event! They are particularly effective in larger rooms with tall ceilings.
How big are the giant balloons?
Our giant balloons are inflated to approximately 30 inches in diameter.
What colours do they come in?
They are available in a wide range of colours – please let us know what colours you would like and we’ll find you the best match.
Can I have my giant balloons outdoors?
It is possible to use giant balloons outdoors. However, it’s important to be aware that any helium-filled balloon will thrash around in the breeze and so will only look effective if the weather is very calm on the day of your event. Please let us know if you are thinking of having the balloons outdoors and we will make them with heavier weights to ensure the bases don’t move.
The price for a solid colour giant balloon (helium-filled, with satin ribbon tail and a weight) is
£20. You can choose to have different tails or finishes, as follows:
- Add confetti to the inside of the balloon (+ £6 per balloon)
- Natural foliage hanging down from the neck of the balloon (+ £6 per balloon)
- Artificial ivory tails (+£8 per balloon)
- Fairy light tails (+£9)
- Collar of miniature balloons attached to the neck of the giant balloon (+ £3 per giant
- Tassel tails (+£10)
- Tulle covered giant balloon (+ £14 per balloon)
- Large bow attached to the neck of the balloon (+ £5 per balloon)
Installation at the venue is included in the price of your balloons – just add delivery. The delivery checker below provides more information on delivery prices as well as the minimum order for delivery to your venue or area.
What to expect
You can expect your giant balloons with ribbon tails to float for at least 3-4 days, probably longer. The giant confetti balloons don’t last quite as long, approximately 2-3 days. Having different tails (for example the foliage tails or tassel tails) can also shorten the float time, as they add extra weight to the balloon. Your giant balloons will get smaller with each passing day as they gradually lose helium. For this reason, we do recommend that they are delivered (or collected) on the day of your event, if possible, to ensure that they look their best for your celebrations.
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
Exposing your balloon to too much heat will cause it to pop. In the summer months, exposure to sunlight will give your latex balloon 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, particularly when being used outdoors.
