balloon questions

what type of balloons do you use?

Hip Hooray Co. uses the highest quality, professional-grade balloons and materials. We have tried and tested hundreds of professional-grade balloons to find the best of the best in performance and color selection. 

We use natural 100% biodegradable latex balloons. It is a common misconception that latex balloons are a plastic product, but latex actually comes from a renewable resource. Harvested from rubber trees, latex balloons are a plant-based product.

Mylar balloons are not biodegradable. However, they can be reused or brought back to our store to recycle in our Zero-Waste bin.

how should i care for my balloons?

Balloons begin to oxidize in the sun, giving them a matte-like or faded appearance. We recommend keeping your balloons inside or in shaded areas. Exposure to extreme heat and sunlight may cause them to pop.

Balloons do not like:

Direct sunlight and heat
Sharp objects
Wind and extreme weather
Roughhousing by pets, children, or adults (we’re all kids at heart).

how long do your balloons last?


Our air-filled balloons, such as indoor balloon garlands, can last for several days if kept away from direct sunlight and heat. So be prepared to have them on your hands for a while! Outdoor balloon garlands do best in shaded areas and mild temperatures. 


Helium-filled balloon float times may vary depending on the size and style. Our standard latex balloons can last anywhere from 1-2 days. Larger sized latex balloons and jumbo latex balloons have a longer float-time before they start to sag. Mylar balloons may last past your event date.

We treat all of our helium-filled latex balloons with hi-float for extended float time. 

Some balloons can deflate sooner than expected, and can be adversely affected by wind, rain, sunlight, and mishandling. Once balloons leave our store, or we finish your installation, we are no longer responsible for their longevity. Balloon sales are final sales.

What are Custom Color balloons?

Custom Color balloons are double-stuffed balloons. Our team carefully inserts 1 balloon into another balloon before inflation. The result is a completely custom color! We use this technique to create a luxe/matte appearance, to achieve a perfect color-match, and to create new balloon colors and finishes that are not currently available.  

Currently, Custom Colors are only available with installation orders.

Do you sell balloons for balloon releases?

We do not support balloon releases (or any forms of littering, tbh).  

We advocate safe balloon practices:

Keep balloons secure and weighted
Do not release balloons into the air
Properly dispose of balloons
 Adult supervision of children around balloons

How should I dispose of my balloons?

When you’re ready to say goodbye, cut down your balloons, pop them, and dispose in your household waste. Latex balloons will completely decompose over time. Mylar balloons can be reused. We are fans of Terracycle’s Zero-Waste party bins to recycle most of your party goods.
