Yes, customers may create their own bouquet from a large selection of individual balloons in latex, foil, or bubble.

Balloon Biz delivers helium filled balloons to the wider Wellington region. We ship flat packed balloons nationwide.

Helium filled balloons deflate quicker than air filled balloons because the helium particles are smaller than air particles and therefore escape through the balloons more easily

All helium filled balloons come with an attached ribbon in a colour of your choice. Balloon weights are sold separately, except in the case where a balloon bouquet is purchased as this includes a weight.

Any of our ‘Inflate Yourself’ balloons can be purchased and shipped to you flat, without being filled with air or helium.

Avoid exposure to direct sunlight, sharp or hot objects, and tiled ceilings. Before releasing a group of balloons to float on the ceiling, release two or three as a test. See Balloon Care for more information.

HI-Float is a balloon treatment solution of a plastic material dissolved in water. It creates a coating inside latex balloons that reduces helium or air loss. HI-Float is very safe. It is nontoxic, non-irritating, noncorrosive, nonflammable and biodegradable. It is similar to the glue on the back of postage stamps.

A helium filled 11” latex balloon will usually last twelve hours and then start to deflate. If hi-float is added to the latex balloon it will usually last a week or longer.

A foil balloon will usually last about three to five days before it starts to deflate very slowly.

Balloon float times depend on temperature, atmospheric conditions and care taken of the balloon. See Balloon Care for more information.

We recommend inflating balloons as close to your event as possible to maximize float time.
