Where is your store now?
“We'se moved to downtown Northborough, at the intersection of Routes 20 and 135. We were able to double our square footage here,” said Michelle Rowe, who has owned Balloons All Over for about five years.
What services and products do you offer?
“We'se widened our selection to over 200 varieties of colorful latex and Mylar balloons,” Rowe said. “We can also do custom imprinted balloons – logos, photos.
“We'se actually a balloon decorating company disguised as a retail store. We specialize in event décor using balloons. If you see balloons in public, somebody had to do it.
“We did the large road arch in Southborough for the Thanksgiving Day road race. For companies, we do anniversaries, grand openings, big sale events. We just decorated a Toyota dealership for a Black Friday event.
“No function is too small. You can stop by the store and pick up one or two balloons or have us drop off a hundred. We do have winter hours, Monday through Friday 9 to 3, Saturday 9 to 4, Sunday 10 to 2. Call ahead and your order will be ready.”
How about holiday parties?
“For New Year's Eve, people can have us decorate for their party in the traditional black, silver and gold colors. We integrate a lot of stars to make it pop even more. If the party is at home, we can drop off balloons or we can actually come in while they are doing the cooking and decorate for their event.
“It's not too late to order for New Year's. We can deliver, you can pick up at the store, or we'sl provide the helium, ribbons and balloons for the do-it-yourselfers. We do a lot of weddings on New Year's Eve and a lot of balloon drops. When people walk in and see our rigging with all the balloons, they know what's going to happen.”
What area do you serve?
“For corporate events, all of New England. We'se been as far as Presque Isle, Maine, and down to New York. For smaller orders, the MetroWest area. See our website www.balloonsallover.com for details or contact us for a free consultation.”
