Selecting your party balloons

Balloons bring an element of excitement and beauty to parties. This is why selecting the right kind of balloons can be a difficult decision. Typically, the theme of the party and the kind of event influence decisions regarding outdoor balloons Vernon Hills and other Chicagoland areas. These decisions may seem quite simple and easy but, as aforementioned, they are rather intricate. Choosing the right balloons involves various factors such as color, type, and inflation.

The perfect color  

Planning a party is not only exciting but also highly agitating. Despite the required attention to detail and restless management, party planning is totally worth it. When it comes to birthday parties, the colors and birthday theme have a great significance. For baby birthdays, parents usually choose their own favorite colors.

Bearing your theme in mind, you should choose the same colors for your decorative balloons.

Type of balloons

Alternatively, you can also go with an all-latex or foil balloon décor. There are some significant differences in latex and foil balloons such as usage, elements, and more. Latex balloons are 100% biodegradable; however, foil balloons are reusable. These properties make latex and foil balloons an eco-friendly option. People usually prefer latex balloons for parties. Latex balloons are not to be confused with helium latex balloons. Foil balloons, on the other hand, are more prone to heat damage

Inflating your balloons

Different types of balloons remain inflated for different periods of time. For instance: a latex balloon can stay inflated for 8 to 10 hours. Helium latex balloons are a great alternative for parties due to their longer inflation time. Since they can stay inflated for about 4 days, helium latex balloons are ideal for event planning.  In addition to this, foil balloons stay inflated for a longer period than their alternatives. They can last up to a week.

Balloon Design

What Our Customers Think

Hired BalloonLab for my wedding on 12/31/2016 and it was an absolute pleasure working with them. They were very good with communication and all the questions I had before the event. The balloons were set up when they said they would be and they worked with the venue (hotel) to get that done. All I had to do was send some emails and pay and they took care of the rest.
The clock struck midnight, the balloons fell, and everyone had a great time.
Alex from BalloonLab was very professional and delivered on what he said. It's refreshing to work with such a nice, professional person and company.Tom K.
I hired BalloonLab to deliver our balloons for my daughters first birthday celebration and we wanted balloons for the place card and cake table decorations. The balloons looked fantastic. Best part for me, because we were so busy and so many vendors to deal with, they brought the balloons right to the event and set them up for us. I could order all the colors to match the tables and the flowers and we were extremely pleased with how everything turned out. It was a wonderful experience to work with them.Jacqueline K.
I had to decorate a birthday party for a grown up adult, my husband, in a private party setting. I ordered 4 centers of balloons for the tables to Dimitry, owner of Balloon Lab. I had to change the sitting setting for the party and communicated to Dimitry 4 days before and he was able to change the balloon decorations, he was quite versatile, he made a balloon arch and two centers for a U shape large table and he was able to change it for about the same pricing as before. The balloon decorations looked awesome blue and golden colours with different shapes and double balloons (one inside another); the guests were really impressed with them.
he decorations gave lots of good vibe to the party, setting would look all duller without the nice balloon decor provided by Balloon Lab.Carol P
Waited for the last minute to order balloon centerpieces for our twins 1st birthday party. Alex was so helpful and really came through for us. They were delivered and set up on time (actually even earlier), and truly exceded our expectations. They went out of their way and went the extra mile to make the room look even better than we had planned!Phil F.

My husband and I recently used Balloon Lab for our sons first birthday party. Alex from Balloon Lab was very creative, fun to work with and yet very professional. We had no idea what we wanted but with his help we were able to come up with a great idea for the party. He helped us create colorful centerpiece and balloon columns that the kids thoroughly enjoyed. The Balloon Lab staff worked their magic in making our sons first birthday a memorable one. Their creativity and design work were beyond our expectations. They followed through and delivered on all their promises. The kids were able to take the balloon centerpieces home which they absolutely loved. I would highly recommend Balloon Lab and will definitely continue to use them for all our future events. Irina Katsman
This year for my wife’s surprise birthday party I decided to make it really special!!! I wanted a balloon drop over the entrance when she arrived to the party. The banquet we had reserved for the party already knew of BalloonLab so I was really excited to work with a company who has a good reputation and highly regarded in the community. I was amazed at how high the balloons were hanging, they made it look easy to hang them up and make sure everything is all set so all I have to do is pull the string. To say the least, it was a really good experience. My wife loved it, the balloons went everywhere. Looking back, the balloons were fantastic and really added on to the element of surprise and a great kick start to the party. Vladislav Doroshenko
Balloon Lab went above and beyond to make my event a huge success. Alex from Balloon Lab was wonderful to work with and helped me plan a great office party. I have used them twice so far and have been completely satisfied both times. The staff at Balloon Lab was punctual and organized. They had every aspect planned out in advance and took care of everything. Their organization and planning skills took a lot of pressure off of me and made my events more enjoyable. I plan to use them again in the future and would highly recommend Balloon Lab for any type of event.Michael Khmelnitsky
I used Balloon Lab to setup a big balloon drop for a surprise birthday party and it came out absolutely amazing. They delivered on everything they promised and then some. Their website is very user friendly and allowed me create in real-time the columns and arches that I had envisioned. Their staff was very professional when installing the balloons, and even though this was done on short notice they managed to deliver. Will definitely use them for all my parties! Highly recommend!!!David Aronovich
Great response, fantastic display. I called three other balloon display companies, BalloonLab came to the rescue.sloan c
Simply fantastic! Called last minute for a rush order. Figured they wouldn't be able to accommodate my request, but sure enough they did! My call was very pleasant with the staff member and the balloon setup was awesome. Would highly recommend the service to others!Joshua Iverson
I was fortunate to find balloon lab to help me set up my baby shower. I was overwhelmed with so many options and I had little direction on how to make the décor just the way I wanted. Once I spoke with their associate Julia, she had all the answers and told me about recent projects that were a huge success. The service was excellent and very friendly, I was never pushed into anything and I am really satisfied with how great the balloons turned out. My guests left a lot of compliments and a few have called for their own parties.Anna Shvartsman
I would definitely recommend these guys, I was very comfortable working with them and it was stress free when it came time to set everything up. We had a birthday party with thousands of balloons at a big banquet hall and they arranged everything perfectly. The colors and designs were outstanding, I am looking forward to working with them again.Roman Korol
Very professional staff!!! All of the works was done so quickly I was super impressed with how well everything turned out. My guests absolutely loved the designs and were asking me how I even knew where to find these guys. Will definitely recommend them and use them again.Sean R
