All of that plus so many things must take place before the party can even come together.

In this post, I will give you 5 solid reasons why you should hire a professional Balloon decorator. Thank me later.
#1 Balloons Are a Lot of Work.
As a balloon artist I can testify that putting together a basic balloon bouquet has even made me break a sweat. The job looks fun and so easy a kid can do it right? Sure. The person showing you step-by-step on YouTube makes things look like a piece of cake but you don’t see everything that goes into it. Here’s more proof, get a person to tie five rubber balloons as quickly as possible and watch them struggle. Afterwards wait for them to complain that it hurt their fingers. Repetitive movements like bending over, balancing on a ladder and even moving equipment all adds up and you will feel it once the job is done.
#2 Arrangements Can be Done Quickly by an Experienced Balloon Artist.
When customers call me, one of my first questions is “What time does your event start?”. After they tell me a specific time my next question is “What time can I start setting up?”. This all lets me know how much I can get done according to exactly what they are asking for. At this point there is no guessing. I know how much time it takes for every style of design from experience. I can tell the customer how much time I will need so there are no schedule conflicts when I get there.
#3 Supplies Cost More if Not Purchased Wholesale.
Businesses have suppliers that allow them to buy products in bulk, or not, for far less than retail. If you just need a few balloons places like Party City, Dollar Tree or even the grocery store should be your go to. If you’re trying to put together a large balloon arrangement yourself, balloons purchased on Amazon will still end up being expensive. Supplies purchased on Amazon end up being expensive since there is someone still trying to make a profit, then add tax and shipping cost. If you hire a professional balloon decorator it may actually save you money and not to mention time.
#4 Balloon Decorators Know How to make Them to Look Good and Last.
There are many little things a balloon artist does to make sure your balloon arrangement stays in tact and looks good for the entire event. There are products that can be used in and on the outside of latex balloon that will maintain its color and shine. Hi-FLOAT will allow the balloon to stay float for a longer time than normal. Hi-Shine makes latex balloons look amazing and more like shiny plastic all day. Knowing which product and when to use them is a part of experience as we mentioned earlier.
#5 You Have Other Things to Do.
It’s your wedding, party or maybe you just have so many other things to do. Why would you want to stress yourself out even more by having to fuss with balloons? I have the skills and to decorate my own party with the most lavish designs. I still wouldn’t want to deal with that on the day of my own party. It’s just too much work and very tiring. The time you spend gathering supplies, trying to learn a new skill and actually making it come together is excessive. That time could have gone to making sure the small and important details of the entire event are not forgotten. When you hire a professional balloon decorator you are doing yourself a party favor.
