What is the difference between Jewel, Pearl, Fashion, Standard and Neon latex balloons?

Jewel tone balloons are bright and transparent. You can easily see through Jewel tone balloons.

Pearl tone balloons have a metallic finish, and are translucent. You cannot see through these balloons.

Fashion and Standard tone balloons are translucent, and come in a variety of great modern colours. You cannot see through Fashion and Standard tone balloons.

Neon tone balloons are bright and fluorescent. You cannot see through Neon tone ballons.

Because of their unique finishes, for best results, Balloons plus Basket does not recommend mixing Jewel, Pearl, and Neon tone balloons in the same bouquet. However, Fashion and Standard tone balloons can be used in the same bouquet.

For more information, please see the Qualatex colour chart. Or, come and see us in Subiaco Village! We will inflate balloons to show you the different balloon tones.

How long will my latex balloons last?

Helium only filled balloons will last for 18-24 hours.

Helium & Hi-Float filled balloons will last for 7-28 days.

*on average for 11" latex balloons


How many bunches of balloons will I need for a room?

As as rough guide, we recommend at least one bunch per 20sqm.

What is Hi-Float?

ULTRA HI FLOAT is an aqueous solution containing a special water-soluble plastic. It dries inside the latex balloon to form a barrier coating that helps hold in helium. ULTRA HI FLOAT will make your latex balloons last much longer than helium only filled balloons.  

How long will my foil balloons and bubbles last?
