There are many factors which determine
the total cost for decorating your event. For each job there
is the cost of the balloon bouquets, sculptures, arches,
columns, and so forth. Then there is the cost for delivery
(travel) and/or set-up (labor). We sometimes also return
to strike the balloons. Our minimum order is for delivery
of a costumed singing telegram which includes a large balloon
bouquet. Singing telegrams start at $249.00. For more information
about singing telegrams, please refer to our web page on
For decorating and deliveries, our minimum
order is $300.00 plus delivery, set-up, and strike (if applicable).
Currently, the most popular price point for guest table
arrangements is $45.00 per table. Although your choices
are limitless, a typical $45.00 table arrangement has seven
(to ten) floating balloons and eighteen miniature balloons.
Among the seven Helium balloons, there is usually a very
large balloon on top and a foil shape, such as a star, in
the middle. The miniature balloons are configured to create
“micro-columns” for the top balloon as well
as the base weight. The micro columns have eight balloons
in each of them. The other two balloons are “squiggles”,
which are made from the same balloons that are used to make
balloon animals. The top balloons are generally over-sized,
such as our three-foot jumbo foil stars, rounds, or hearts.
You may also select a jumbo double or triple bubble top
or a themed foil balloon like the Hollywood movie camera,
music note, juke box, and hundreds more. The minimum cost
is $25.00 per table; and, you still have choices at that
Free-floating balloon columns or large
floor-based balloon arrangements which we call "Big
Bouquets" are often priced in the $50.00 to $110.00
range. They usually include ten to nineteen Helium balloons
each; and, they are arranged in rows of three balloons each.
They usually include similar frills that we incorporate
into the table designs such as micro columns and squiggles.
The larger bouquets often have a row of three foil balloons
in the center. In the past few years, Helium has become
in short supply and the cost has tripled. One small benefit
of this issue is that we are often able to substitute foil
rounds, hearts, or stars at little or no extra charge since
the Helium cost makes the price difference between latex
and Mylar balloons less relevant.
garland balloon columns with three-foot top balloons (think
of giant barber poles) are typically $150.00 depending on
the height and type of balloons used. Columns are usually
about nine feet tall. Columns that are used outdoors and
columns that are taller may cost a bit more. (A $25.00 per
column refund is issued to Clients who return the steel
pole and wooden base to our Olney, MD location).
balloon arches start at $75.00. Double arches start at $100.00.
Fish-Bone arches start at $150.00. Full garland balloon
arches start at $200.00. These prices are for small arches.
The more common sized large arches are usually double the
size and double the price. Please search our photo galleries
for samples of the different arch styles. Arch prices vary
according to size, decoration set-up window, type of balloons,
and how long the arch needs to last.
delivery/set-up charge for decorating is typically $150.00.
This fee is sometimes discounted for non-profits, venues
in close proximity, and, repeat Clients. We generally do
not return to remove the balloons. Most venues are happy
to discard the balloon art that is left behind. We can also
provide you with some tips for easily disposing of the balloons.
If the balloon crew must return to strike the décor,
there is a $200.00 minimum strike fee. Distance, delivery
time window, and the size of the order may significantly
affect the delivery and strike fees. All clients receive
a comprehensive written price quote
prior to a request for payment. Please read our FAQ page
