We will set up the delivery schedule according to your choices and send you a reminder prior to each delivery (in the hopes you will receive an excited thank you phone call from your student).
Deliveries will be made on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday as part of the packaging pricing.
Special deliveries available on alternate days for additional service fee.
Why does Balloons from the Heart exist?
This is SOOO very easy to answer! As a former public school teacher who loved my students, I find myself drawn to interacting with young adults. Many of my employees are college students. As I’ve listened to them over the years, I have often heard them feeling scared, overwhelmed, confused, depressed and lonely many times. They aren’t
always feeling that way. Other times they express feelings of excitement, elation, and joy. College students have a wide variety of emotions and pressures on them.
Whenever I’ve delivered balloons to a college student, they have always smiled widely and I can see their whole body language lift. One day, I delivered balloons to one of my employees, who was having a particularly rough time. When she received the balloons (she wasn’t there when I delivered them) I immediately received a call telling me how I had “made her day.” This gave me the idea of Balloons from the Heart—offer this service to parents so they could uplift their kids an stay connected during this “letting go” time of life—and so Balloons from the Heart was born.
When speaking with my graphic design company, they said, “Man, this would be so good for senior citizens.” I had a few people tell me that as well. That’s when I added the Senior Parent packages.
I love sending Balloons from the Heart and spreading joy to both these age groups. It’s a blessing for my staff and me to provide this service.

For College Deliveries: What if my student’s birthday falls on a date when school is not in session? Example: Birthday is during Christmas break.
