1-800-Balloons Balloon & Floral Facts
Sending a balloon bouquet to a special friend or family member is a great way to express your special wishes for every special occasion. Balloons make a lasting impression for years to come - with colorful combinations of brightly colored latex balloons and assorted messages and themes on our mylar/foil balloons.
When selecting one of our balloon arrangements, please note that our latex balloons float for 8 to 12 hours, while mylar foil balloons float from 4 to 6 days.
Check your flowers daily! Keep the vase, container or liner filled with fresh water. Even if the container has floral foam, you should keep the water level high to promote long lasting flowers. The container's water has a fresh flower food added to it. If you completely change the water, you should also thoroughly clean the container. Add fresh water mixed with a commercial fresh flower food. These flower foods may be supplied by the florist who delivered your order and they contain the correct ingredients to properly nourish the flowers, keep bacteria at bay (which can block the stems and prevent them from absorbing water), encourage buds to open, and lengthen the life of the bouquet. It's one of the best—and easiest—ways to extend the life of your flowers, but be sure to follow the directions on the package correctly. Improperly mixed floral food can actually do more harm than good.
Writing Card Messages
When you are sending a present, we will include your personal message printed on a specially designed note card. Your message should be short and sweet, but can include some meaningful messages. Be sure to include your name so your recipient knows who is sending the gift. It is not always easy to write a heartfelt message that expresses how you feel, but it’s always the thought that counts.
