How far ahead should I book a party or event date?
The earlier, the better! It’s best to contact us before you have a set date in mind. That way you have some options if the time you had in mind is already booked.
Booking your party or event early can help you get the date you want. We can book dates anywhere from up to 1 year in advance to just a few days, for some events. Our schedules fill quickly, especially around holidays and on weekends. Contact us by phone or email to check availability!
Customers are served on a first-come, first-serve basis, so don't wait!
How do I reserve my date?
You can reserve your date with a $50 reservation fee.
This fee is non-refundable, and will be applied toward your total for your event.
Contact us directly to check availability and make your reservation!
What payment methods do you accept? How does payment work?
We accept Paypal online, or you can call with a card to pay over the phone, or you can mail a check. We accept cash or check in person at the event for the remaining balance. The final balance is always due at completion of setup, unless otherwise arranged ahead of time. In the event that the balance hasn't been paid within 90 days for the event setup date, a late fee of $5 per day will apply.
When is the best time to contact you, or what are your business hours?
We are usually in office 10 AM to 7 PM, Monday through Friday (unless we are booked for events or decor jobs), but you can give us a call or send an email anytime! If we're available, we're always happy to chat with you! If not, we’re probably out twisting balloons. Just leave a message and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. And of course you can always send an email, and we'll respond just as quick as we can!
What days are you available for decorating or entertainment?
We are available for parties, events, and decor setup 7 days a week, barring our being booked by another client. We come to you at your location at a time that works for you. For large-scale décor we have even stayed overnight at venues to ensure everything looks perfect come opening time!
What do you charge for an event, or party, or decorations?
See our Event Entertainment, our Birthday Party Packages, and our Balloon Decor pages for pricing! Decor is usually customized, so contact us for a quote if you don't see what you need in a set.
Can you help me design decor for my event?
Yes, we can! We can offer many suggestions over the phone or email, and if you like, we can visit your location (a complimentary service, although a travel fee may apply if the location is out of our area) once the date is reserved to help you determine the best look and fit for your event. We will work with you to ensure everything looks fabulous on the big day!
The venue my event is being held at doesn't allow helium. Can I still decorate with balloons?
No helium? No problem! We have tons of awesome air-fill options, perfect for any event or venue!
Are the balloons safe for the environment?
Yes! You may be surprised to learn that latex balloons are very environmentally safe. They are made from natural rubber, which comes from trees, and they decompose at about the same rate as an oak leaf! So go ahead and plan your balloon drop or release without guilt. Tip: Mylar (foil) balloons and balloon ribbon can potentially be hazardous to the environment, so if your event is outdoors, we recommend leaving those things for the indoor events.
Do you offer a discount for not-for-profit organizations?
Yes! While we can't donate to every worthy organization (we wish we could!), we can offer a 10% discount off your total for your event! For example, that means if you spend $100, you get $10 FREE! And if you spend $200, you $20 FREE! And if you... oh, you get the idea.
How long do balloon sculptures and/or bouquets usually last?
Longer than you'd think! We use the highest quality balloons available, and for helium balloons, float time can be extended with Hi-Float. If you have a very long event, we can help you design decor or sculptures that will hold up well!
How much is delivery?
Delivery charges are based on mileage and range from $5-$25 for most locations around central Indiana.
Will you travel to places other than central Indiana?
Have balloons, will travel! For events, if your location is within a reasonable driving distance (i.e., we are able to get there and back in the same day), our travel fee is $25 per hour of drive time (each way). If the location requires a plane flight or an overnight stay, we can travel if these things are provided. (Special discounts apply for locations like Hawaii, or the Caribbean.... you know, places like that.)
Can you provide or recommend other entertaiment, too? I have a large event and need several types of entertainment!
Yes, we can! We often work with other entertainers such as magicians and clowns. And our sister company, Happily Ever After Productions, can provide face painting and Indy’s BEST Princess Parties! Visit them at www.HappilyEverAfterProductions.com!
Where did you get your adorable balloon doggie earrings?
We made them! We make lots of balloon animal jewelry! Most are hand sculpted from clay, and some are cast metal. You can see our selection (and maybe get your own) on the Gift Shop page, at our online shop, "Art with a Twist": artwithatwist.etsy.com.
I want to learn balloon twisting! Can you teach me?
Yes, we can! Contact us to be added to our Notification List for updates on workshops and our upcoming DVD's!
