Extreme Decoration FAQ's
Extreme Decorations is a full service decorating company which
means that we deliver and decoratively arrange all of the design
elements that you have chosen and when necessary, return for
breakdown and pick up of any rental items. The cost of delivery
is based on the time needed, the location of the event and the
quantity of décor.
What areas do you service?
Extreme Decorations are based in Miami, FL and service the Miami
Dade and some Broward areas. We will travel to greater distances
based on our availability and the scope of work.
What is the process for planning and selecting
It all starts with a phone call or an email. First we need to
know the date, time and location of your event. Then we can
confirm our availability and will be happy to begin discussing
your event details.
The process for selecting decorations is often similar for our
At first we have a conversation and try to understand your
decorative goals. We will ask what type of event it is and if
you are working with specific colors or a theme.
Then, we are often able to email pictures from our digital
portfolio to show you some of the possibilities. For example, we
may have photos of the event space, examples of different styles
and photos of décor in your colors.
After your review of our photos and ideas, we have a second
conversation or correspondence to fine tune the elements that we
both feel will meet your event goals and are appropriate for the
event space. We will discuss placement, color and other aspects
relating to your event.
At this point we provide a cost free written decorative proposal
outlining the elements. This proposal includes the cost of the
decorations as well as any other costs such as delivery, set up
After we have a decorative plan, we provide a descriptive
invoice detailing what will be provided and specifying all the
details of delivery, installation and payment.
How do I select my colors?
We can email you the balloon color chart. This chart
shows standard, jewel-tone, pearl and metallic finish type
balloons in solid colors. There are also a large variety of
imprinted, patterned and shaped latex balloons that we can email
you a picture of.
How far in advance do I need to book my event?
We schedule events up to one year in advance. Certain dates are
very popular so it is best to reserve your event date as soon as
you know your day, time and location.
How long will the balloons float?
At sea level, balloons float from 10 hours to 5 days (with High
Float), depending on several factors that includes the size,
finish, temperature and shape. We will guide you to the proper
size and type of balloon that will last longer than your event.
As professionals we are aware of the product limitations and
will only use the appropriate items. Also, it is possible to use
Hi-Float™ to extend the float time of latex balloons.
What is Hi-Float™?
Hi-Float™ is a liquid sealant used to coat the interior surface
of latex balloons and reduce the speed at which helium escapes
through the latex pores. When applied to balloons that will be
used indoors, it can increase the float time by several days.
Hi-Float™ is non-toxic and water soluble.
How much do balloon arches cost?
Balloon arches are priced by height, width, style and the actual
balloons chosen. It is important to consider how the arch will
be used, such as a walk through or drive through arch. Arches
can be a string of pearl which is one balloon after another on a
single line, or packed which is made of 4 balloon clusters
wrapped on a single line if using helium. Packed arches can also
be air filled and created using base plates, poles and flexible
arch rod. We rarely install helium arches outdoors due to the
unknown factors of wind and weather.
What do I need to do to reserve my event date and time?
After selecting your decorative package and pricing, a deposit
of 50% will reserve your event date and time.
Our event location does not allow helium. Can I still
decorate with balloons?
Yes, there are many air filled balloon designs that will last
for days or even weeks. We decorate with arches, columns and
topiaries that are air filled in these locations.
When is the final payment due?
The final balance is due in full the day of the event.
The balance may NOT be paid by check,
only credit card or cash can be accepted.
What is the cancellation policy?
Deposits for event decorations are non refundable.
In case of cancellation, the deposit is non-
refundable only store credit will be issued towards one future
booking and within 6 months from the original event's date, but
it will not be refunded. All cancellations should be made at
least 7 days in advanced to the date of the event.
