Frequently Asked


How do we get started?

Easy! If you like what you see, simply fill out the contact form here! We will contact you back and get a better understanding of your event. We will then send you a rendering based on your vision and budget.  Once everything is finalized, we will send you an invoice. 


What areas do you serve? How far do you travel?

We are based out of Metuchen, New Jersey. We serve all counties in NJ and all 5 NYC boroughs. If you are outside our typical service area, please contact us and will let you know if we can help you. We are willing to travel for large events.


I don’t know what I want. Can you help?

Yes, we would love to help! Just give us as much information as you can provide us in the contact form. Believe us, we have plenty of people who say they want a ‘balloon thing’.  We can help you figure out details when we chat.


Do you offer event planning services?

We are not a full service event planning company. We have many event planner friends, so let us know if you need a referral.  We can help you with your event décor needs! 


What's the difference between event planner and an event decorator?

An event planner facilitates planning an event. They can help you find and book a venue, work with your caterer and nail down the details of your event. An event decorator can be hired by an event planner. Event decorators like A Lovely Party help add the details.  We design and create centerpieces, backdrops, etc.  


Do you make decorations for weddings?

Yes and No. We make custom décor such as backdrops, signs, and centerpieces, but we do not have 20 candelabras and an assortment of linens for rent. Reach out to us for more information.


Why should I pick A Lovely Party? 

A Lovely Party dedicates time to focus on your event and help you bring your vision to life. Take a look at our website and IG page, if you like what we create reach out. Our goal is to make sure that you are happy with your event.  


Do you deliver?

Yes, we deliver! Local delivery is complementary. We charge for delivery outside our 10 mile radius. 


Can we pick up balloons from you?

Yes, you can! Customers can pick up a mini garland, balloon bouquet, or decorations!


Can you ship my decorations?

We ship our decals, cake toppers, banners, kits and decorations.  We do not ship inflated balloons. 


Do you use helium to inflate your balloons?

No! All our balloons are filled with air. If you are looking for balloons filled with helium we can refer you to other balloon vendors. Helium is a non-renewable natural resource. More information here.  


What happens to the balloons after the event? Do you remove them?

The balloons are yours. We do offer a breakdown service for an additional fee.  


How do you dispose of balloons? Are balloons biodegradable or can they be recycled?

Latex balloons are biodegradable and can not be recycled.  Foil balloons should be recycled. 


I saw this picture on Pinterest, Instagram, etc, can you replicate it?

We can use your inspirations to help you design for your event. We do not copy other professionals’ designs. We all have our own styles, techniques, and creativity. 


How long do balloons last? 

Balloons by nature are temporary.  Indoor balloon installations can last for weeks. Outdoor installations may last only a few hours.  


We try to ensure our installations last at least 8 hours outdoors and 24 hours indoors. We work with our clients to find the best location for balloon installations. During the installation, our team may make changes (colors, shape, location, etc) only in the best interest of our clients. 


Can I remove vinyl decals?

Yes, we specialize in making temporary vinyl decals for events and special messaging. They can last several weeks. If you would like them to last longer, just let us know and we can make decals for longer use. 


Can I install a decal by myself?

Yes, decals can be installed by yourself. We provide clients with detailed instructions on how to install them. 


I need to cancel my event. Now what? 

If clients need to cancel or reschedule an event, they may have a "rain check" valid for 6 months if they contact A Lovely Party 36 hours prior to their install.  


Last minute change in plans, can you deliver and install at a new venue? 

Should you need to relocate your event, you must contact A Lovely Party 24 hours in advance. We will monitor the weather for outdoor events and will contact you if we feel that it may be an issue. Please note you may incur a relocation fee to cover new travel expenses if your event location changes.  


What are your prices?

Most balloon installations you see on our Instagram are $200+. Take a look at our Pricing page for additional options. We can work within your budget.

I don’t have a budget, but I want fun décor. Can I still work with A Lovely Party?

The possibilities are endless when it comes to event décor. We can give you options at different price points.

Who sets up? How long does it take?

Depending on the size of the event, you may have one to five A Lovely Party team members on site at your event.  It can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 4 hours.  We will give you an idea of the size of the team and how long it will take when we chat. 

Can I order just a custom cake topper through A Lovely Party? 

Yes! We love making custom cake toppers, custom banners, and party kits for our clients. We also work with local bakeries.

Do you do onsite walk throughs?

Yes, for larger projects we encourage walk throughs.
