So where do you find balloons? Well yeah, the dollar store will definitely have balloons but I’m talking about beautiful, premium styled balloons that make your jaw drop as soon as you lay eyes on them.

These aren’t just regular balloons. Balloon Bar offers stylish and must-have balloons that you’ll never want to throw away. To top it off, they also deliver and decorate the venue FOR YOU. Even if you’re just spending Valentine’s Day at home binge watching Netflix and eating copious amount of Chinese food and chocolate (cash me on the couch, how bout dat), the stylists at Balloon Bar will come and decorate your apartment/house with their trendy balloons. How cool is that?
Their focus on details is pretty amazing too. They’ve got a large range of trendy colours, size and shapes for you to choose from as well as hand-crafted accessories like tassels and confetti and you can even choose the font or colour if you want to add some writing to your balloon gifts.
So if you’re already starting to plan Valentine’s day, consider balloons to add an extra special touch to an already special day.
