How long should balloons stay afloat?
There are 2 main types of balloons that we typically deliver. Mylar balloons(the silver shiny ones with sayings and pictures on the side) and latex balloons(the colorful, rubbery ones that are common for water balloons!) Mylar balloons filled properly with helium should typically last a week or longer. Latex balloons filled properly with helium should last about 18-24 hours.
Rose Color Trends: Rage for Red Roses
A rose is a rose is a rose. Or is it? Unbeknownst to most of us, the 1990s spawned a virtual baby boom of rose varieties. Brought on by a fertile production period, today there are close to 120 rose varieties commercially available - up from the few dozen choices found in flower shops in the 1980s. These new rose varieties have not only expanded the color palette - from extreme lights to bright brights - but have enhanced characteristics such as bloom size, shape, stem length and strength of fragrance. The new reds for roses range from shades of bright raspberry to majestic scarlet to velvety-dark red to orange-kissed hues.
