FAQ (or Frequently Asked Questions)
What is your phone number?
We work via email in order to exchange photos and will only exchange pricing in writing. This is also for your benefit to ensure order accuracy and allows both parties to view order details at any time. Working through email also allows us to provide quick responses while at other event locations or after business hours.

We proudly provide balloon decor for the Chicagoland area and the surrounding suburbs.
Can I meet with you at my event space?
Yes. An on-site consultation is available on select weekdays for an additional fee.
How far in advance should I place my order?
Orders should be placed as early as possible. Event set up dates and times are first come first serve.

How and when do I pay for my decor?
In order to book your event we required a deposit of 50% and remaining balance is due 1 week before your event date. Payments can be made by credit cards, checks, cash, Paypal or money orders. For schools, organizations, and corporations, we understand a check may need to be processed for payment. If a payment cannot be made before the event date, a signed contract will be required.
What is your cancellation policy?

How long do balloons last indoors?
Many air filled balloon designs can last weeks indoors! The longevity of the balloons will depend on the environmental conditions of the space.
How long will my helium balloons float?
All of our mylar and foil helium balloons will float for at least 3 days if indoors, but typically much longer!
How long do balloons last outdoors?
Balloons used outdoors are not guaranteed to last any specific amount of time as the sun, heat, wind, rain, etc., affects the lifespan of the balloons.
Are balloons biodegradable or can they be recycled?
Yes! Our latex balloons are made of natural materials and are 100% biodegradable at the same rate as an oak leaf. Mylar (or foil) balloons are NOT biodegradable but are able to be recycled.
I bought some balloons from somewhere else, can you inflate them for me?
Yes, but we can not guarantee the quality of balloons not provided by us. If they are defective or burst during or after inflation, you will still be charged the full amount for that balloon. We also can not speculate about the longevity of balloons not provided by us.
I don't know what I want, can you help me figure it out?
Absolutely! When you call to talk to one of Balloons for Everything's event artists, they will ask you questions about your event and the purpose of the decor- that is whether you are trying to attract attention to a focal point, or going for an overall ambiance. If you have already figured out your approximate budget, our designers can help by suggesting packages and decor alternatives that match your goals with your specific budget in mind.
