Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
There are many frequently asked questions (FAQ) when it comes to balloons and balloon decorations. Here is a list of the questions that we feel are the most important.
CAN I PICK UP MY ORDER?
No, we cheerfully deliver and set-up all of our balloon decorations.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I NEED TO PLACE MY ORDER?
Our services are booked on a first come, first serve basis. Many weekend slots fill up weeks in advance. We encourage you to schedule for your event as early as possible.

DO YOU HAVE BACKDROPS FOR RENT?
Yes, we offer several different styles of backdrops that can be rented as part of our balloon services. We would be happy to recommend styles of backdrops that would be best suited for your event.
ARE BALLOONS DANGEROUS?
They can be….
CHOKING HAZARD – Children under 8 years old can choke or suffocate on un-inflated or broken balloons. Adult supervision is required.
Keep un-inflated balloons away from children and/or pets.
Discard broken balloons at once.
Also, never inhale Helium as this can cause suffocation, serious injury or death.
WILL YOU FILL BALLOONS THAT I PROVIDE?
No, due to worldwide helium shortages, we are not able to fill your balloons at this time.
ARE BALLOONS BIODEGRADABLE?
Latex is made from rubber. It’s organic, made from the sap of rubber trees collected through an absolutely harmless tapping process very similar to that used for collecting the maple sap used for making syrup. It breaks down when exposed to the elements of nature, degrading at the rate of an oak leaf (about 6 months).
Foil balloons (also known as Mylar balloons) – are coated plastic and are not biodegradable.
Bubble Balloons are neither latex nor foil. They are made of plastic. They are durable, never oxidize, and are non-allergenic, but not biodegradable.
CAN I BUY BALLOONS TO RELEASE INTO THE AIR?
On the Rise does not support balloon releases.
We understand that sometimes balloons are accidentally released into the air. Because of this, we include weights and bags with all balloon orders in an effort to decrease accidental releases.
