Modern Helium Balloon Inflation in Ruislip

My Dream Party Shop is delighted to offer helium inflation in Ruislip for collection.  Please note that most balloons shown on our website show prices for balloons only and don't include helium inflation. You can view lots of helium balloon sets ready to order online in this collection - Helium Balloons for Collection - if you don't see what you require please read the information below for a guide to prices or contact us to discuss your requirements. 

Note that we only provide helium inflation for balloons purchased from us as we may not have replacement balloons in case of any breakages, because we will be unsure of the quality of the balloon and unable to guarantee float times and need to ensure that we only use CE kitemarked balloons under our insurance terms and as members of BAPIA.

We also offer balloon garland, personalised Bubble and Orbz Balloons and balloon hoop installation.

Although we can offer inflation on the day, ideally we need a few days notice in order to ensure that we have your desired balloons in stock. 

Please contact us with a clear outline of what you are looking for in terms of balloon type, colour/s, sizes, any enhancements or personalisation, whether the balloons are floor standing or table top, required date of collection. We will also require your full name, address, mobile number and email address for invoice purposes. If you let us know the occasion and age/sex of recipients we are happy to provide you with ideas and recommendations. If you have a photograph of what you are looking for then please do send this to us.


We specialise in personalised 20 and 24 inch bubble balloons which are bespoke to your requirements. We can also personalise giant orbz balloons which come in a range of stunning colours. See our dedicated Bubble Balloon page for further information. Prices start from £30.00.


We offer helium inflation of 34 inch number balloons in gold, rose gold, silver, black, pastel blue, royal blue, pastel pink and metallic hot pink. Other colours may be available upon request and with plenty of notice. The price is £12.99 per number including helium, ribbon and weight. These can all be ordered in our helium collection (see main menu)


See our ceiling balloon page for prices and information on ordering timelines.  We can offer pretty much any colour combination so get in touch if you can't see what you are looking for.


Latex balloon bunches look best in odd numbers ie. 3, 5, 7 etc. Note that latex is a porous material and therefore it has a much shorter helium float time than foil balloons which can last for weeks.Helium starts seeping from a latex balloon from the moment it is filled and therefore the average float time for helium depending on temperature is around 10 - 12 hours. We add hi-float to all of our latex balloons so the float time is increased to 3 - 5 days or much longer.  Latex balloons require a minium of 2 hours to dry. 

Confetti balloons are super pretty but please bear in mind that the confetti reduces the float time of latex balloons to around 6 hours and we cannot add hi-float to confetti balloons so cannot increase their float time.

Latex balloons can be collected the night before if you require them early in the morning, otherwise they won't be ready for collection until after 11.00. We will need to know if your bunches need to be floor standing or table top height.


As with latex balloons, foil balloon bunches look best grouped in odd numbers ie. 3, 5, 7 etc. Foils have a much better float time and will generally last around 3 - 5 days (18 inch balloons) or 2 - 3 weeks for 34 inch balloons, depending on temperature conditions and the size and shape of the balloon.

We can make a stunning range of clusters mixing shapes and colours to make something bright and colourful or can create a collection with similar more muted tones. See our online foil balloon collection for a better idea about colours and shapes that we generally have in stock. We also have a stunning collection of fun foil shapes (note that the prices shown in these collections are for the balloon only).

If you don't see what you are looking for then please do let us know and we may be able to get this in stock for you given enough notice (ideally 5 days).

Any further questions regarding helium inflation please do contact us. We are happy to make suggestions and send you ideas for your budget if you are not sure what you are looking for.
