How much does balloon decor cost?

The prices of balloon decor varies based on what it is you are looking for. We have a series of price lists at the bottom of this page with price breakdowns on some of the most common balloon decor elements. Though it would be nice to just have a simple answer, many balloon decor companies actually have spreadsheets and balloon decor calculators to determine the costs associated with an event. Aside from the balloons and labor, there is also technique, travel and other specialty equipment to consider. As much as I wish I could just give you a balloon calculator for arches, the average cost of balloon garland can vary.

What is Classic Balloon Decor?

The most common pieces of decor are going to revolve around what we in the industry term “classic balloon decor.” Classic balloon decor included the simple column, the air-filled balloon arch, the helium string of pearls arch, and the balloon bouquet or delivery. These types of balloon decorations are uniform in how they are created and are much more simple to price. Most decorators have a formula for how they price these items. Even though a company may say there is a flat cost for a single door arch or a double door arch, that price was usually derived from the garland price per foot. In other words, how much does it cost in materials and time to create the sculpture when broken down to a per foot measurement? All you need to know is how much does a balloon garland cost? Prices for standard garland for a standard air-filled balloon arch or a regular balloon column can vary between $10 to $20 per linear foot, depending on what part of the country you are in.

How much does an organic demi-arch balloon garland cost?

Traditional garland is priced at $12/ft, organic level 1 cost is $24/ft, Organic lvl 2 garland is $36/ft, Organic lvl 3 balloons are $48/ft, Full Foil or Double Stuffed is $95/linear foot. Most popular lately would be the organic balloon decor that is all over pinterest, instagram, and facebook. As there are literally limitless types of organic decor that can be created, this is probably the most difficult to price. For most companies that you contact about pricing, they will be very frustrating to speak with as they will ask you questions that may seem irrelevant, but that are very important when trying to write a quote for balloon garland at your event. The cost of balloon garland for organic decor is not the same as the classic decor discussed above. At YTE Events and Balloon Decor, we do our best to make this conversation as simple as possible. We have created a series of pricing sheets to help. Here is an example of an organic balloon decor pricing sheet that we have used in the past. It covers prices for traditional garland as well as basic, intermediate, and advanced level organic styles. It even mentions the organic made with full foil balloons or with special custom colors from double stuffing the balloons (a technique used by balloon decorators to get a closer color match to themed events).

Are there other things in balloon decor?

Of course there are! There are tons of other things that can be priced. Balloon drops, centerpieces, walls, yard numbers, custom sculptures, and even parade balloons are an option. If you want to know the cost of centerpieces or other specialty items, you will likely have to tell the balloon decor designer what it is you are looking for. At YTE Events and Balloon Decor, they can create anything out of balloons. So, feel free find photos online or to search through pinterest for a great balloon decor board. Send in the photo of the items you like and we can price out specific decor pieces for you. Until then, here is a list of our most common balloon decor prices. As with anything, these prices can change and you will need to fill out the balloon decor event request form for a most updated list of pricing and a custom quote.
