Balloon Garland T&C
We use removable Command hooks against most commonly glass window or plaster wall, which can be easily removed by pulling the adhesive tab downwards. Please make sure you do this slowly so that the tab comes off in one piece, as improper removal may cause damage to your wall such as paint peeling etc. No liability will be taken should this happen.
Command hooks are generally allowed to be used against glass window or acrylic panel if available, but not on the wall (some venues are very strict). It is your responsibility to get approval from the venue manager to use Command hooks. No liability will be taken should the hooks cause damage to the surface they were stuck on, as we will not be the one to remove them.
If hooks were not allowed and there are no other rigging options available (such as ceiling beams etc), then you will need to hire a backdrop. We do not hire out props but we can recommend a local supplier.
Bump In and Props
If we are fixing your garland to a backdrop, the prop must be ready at the designated bump in time. We are always under tight schedule and will only have a limited amount of time on site (up to an hour in most cases). If the prop is not ready when we get there, unfortunately we will have to install the garland temporarily elsewhere which you can move later on.
What do you do with the balloons afterwards?
There are a few options - you can pop the jumbo balloons and take the rest home, you can onsell them, or you can get the kids to pop the balloons and they'll have the best time of their lives. Bump out fee applies if you require us to remove the balloons after the event.
How long do balloon garlands last?
It goes without saying that with balloons, their lifetime is affected by the condition they are in. If you keep them indoor with no direct sunlight, air conditioning, or heating running in the room, they will last up to a few weeks or a month.
When balloons are oxidised, they will loose their natural shine and become matte and dull in appearance, confetti balloons will become cloudy. Balloons will also shrink faster on a cold winter night or in a room with air conditioning.
With outdoor installation, balloons may oxidise as quickly as half an hour. Some balloons may pop randomly on a really hot day. Generally you can only assume outdoor garland to last for the day.
