Frequently asked questions
Q. What are your opening hours?
A. The shop is open Tuesday - Friday 9am - 5pm, and Saturday 9am - 3pm.
Q. I already have balloons that I bought from somewhere else. Will you
be able to fill them with helium for me and how much will it cost?
A. We see lots of balloons that have been purchased from Amazon
shops or eBay stores that are faulty, and which cannot
be successfully filled. For this reason we don't fill
balloons that have not been bought from us.The cost
of filling a balloon is proportional to the amount
of helium it takes to fill it. This is typically around
£1.30 per standard 18" round
foil balloon, or £1.25 per 11" latex balloon. We do sell disposable
helium cylinders that you can use to fill your own
balloons. They cost £19.99.
Q. Do you sell balloons that I can use for a balloon
A. No, sorry. We have a responsibility towards the environment, wildlife
and the future of the balloon industry.
Q. Can you fill my own confetti balloons with helium
A. Sorry but we can't fill these in the shop. Large 3ft balloons don't
fit through the door, and 12" confetti balloons have a short float
time so need to be done just before your occasion.
We do stock 18" clear balloons that we can fill with
confetti for you. These premium quality balloons will
float for several days and cost £4.50 each with helium.

Q. Will it be cheaper for me to make my own balloon arrangements or
get you to make them for me?
A. It usually works out a little cheaper if we make your balloon arrangements
for you. If you fill 11" latex balloons from a disposable helium
cylinder, the helium cost per balloon is about £1.33.
We charge £1.25 for the helium, per balloon, when making balloon arrangements
in the shop. We don't charge extra for making balloons
Q. Do you deliver?
A. There are some occasions where decorating the room or tables with
balloons can only be done on site. For these larger jobs, we may be
able to decorate your venue for you. There is no charge made for the
time we spend on site creating your balloon arrangements. Please get
in touch with us to see if we can help.
