Balloons make everybody Happy
Let’s go big.
We have a Master’s degree in bringing the happy.
College is often a challenging season of disciplined study for students, staff, and faculty. That’s why the very best colleges and universities understand that creating fun, engaging, unforgettable events and experiences is critical on a college campus. It’s hard, though, to make that happen. That’s where we come in! Our speciality is bringing the happy and excitement to your events like graduations, career fairs, sporting events, and everything in between. From simple school-colored garlands in or a few party posts in the student center to an over-the-top, unforgettable custom balloon installation that will be the talk of the campus, we bring the happy. We’re the go-to company in Little Rock and Arkansas for creative and unforgettable event decor for your college or university. Let’s work together to make your next event a success and something the entire campus will never forget.

You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers.
Can I rent the marquee letters that I see on your Instagram?
We love those letters too! You can rent them from our friends at Alpha-Lit, and we’ll deck them out with balloons. Just reserve your letters with Alpha-Lit, and then customize your balloons with us.
How long will helium balloons stay inflated?
Typically, latex balloons will stay inflated for 8-12 hours, while foil balloons can stay inflated for several days or even weeks. Inflation time, though, is affected by many factors, such as high temperatures and extreme humidity.
Will my garland last until Saturday or Sunday if I pick it up on Friday?
Yes! Since we are out installing on Saturdays and Sundays, all of our pickups are scheduled on Fridays. Our garlands come completely bagged so they will stay perfectly fresh for your event later in the weekend.
What’s the average cost of a custom installation?
Do you charge a travel fee?
Yes, we do. We love to bring the happy outside of Little Rock, but it’s costly to travel! Because of that, we charge a fee of $50 per hour of travel (minimum of $50), though that fee can increase based on a number of factors (i.e. length of travel, total number of employees required, current gas prices, other logistic considerations, etc).
How much do you charge for your services?
You can get a sense of a lot of our pricing by perusing our online store, but for custom installations, it’s truly that: custom. We work with you to come up with a plan specific to your needs and from there, we provide an estimate. If you have a set budget, we’re more than happy to come up with a plan that fits your budget.
What is your cancellation policy?
All deposits are non-refundable. If you cancel at least 2 weeks prior to the installation date and you’ve yet to pay the remaining balance, you are not obligated to pay it. We often work with you, though, to apply your deposit to a future booking. If you cancel within 2 weeks, you are responsible for paying the entire invoice fee (which can often be applied toward a future booking).
Do you give discounts or donate your services to nonprofits?
We love working with nonprofits and we do often give discounts or donate our services. This can be challenging for a small business. We get many requests for donations, so we work hard to be judicious responsible with how and when we donate.
Balloons are cheap. Why do you charge so much?
You’re right: you can buy a bag of balloons for a matter of dollars. If we were selling balloons, we’d go out of business! What we sell is our creative services. We sell a team of makers and designers and artists who come alongside you to help you achieve your event dreams and create something beautiful and truly unforgettable. We aren’t the cheapest. Frankly, we don’t try. We’re far more concerned with creating something custom and artistic and brings you joy.
What’s the average cost of a custom installation?
The cost of a custom installations can vary widely depending on factors such as size, scope, location, staff required, and environmental elements. Generally speaking, the low end is $500 and it can go up significantly from there. Need an estimate for an idea you have? Shoot us a message.
How long will my balloon installation last?
If your installation is inside, it can last for weeks or even months! If your installation is outside, especially in hot summer weather or direct sun, it will last for several hours. We schedule outdoor installations close to the start time of your event.
How do I hang my garland outside?
We recommend waiting to hang outdoor garlands until an hour before your event. Tie to existing nails, heavy duty command hooks, or around columns, stair rails, or fence posts.
