Depending on the size of your order you can expect a team of one to four event specialist. Based on the size and design of your decoration, it can take about an hour to 4 hours for our team to build and set up your decorations.

If you are booking your event less than 2 weeks from the scheduled date, payment in full is required. Payments can be made by PayPal, or cash. Late payments may result in late fees or forfeiture of your reservation. Deposits and other payments will not be refunded.
I have purchased balloons and other party supplies on my own. Can Madeline’s Room set them up and offer a reduced service fee?
To ensure the consistency and quality of our balloon designs, we do not allow our clients to substitute our latex or foil balloon products. We do not extend price reductions or other discounts to clients who prefer to use their own paper/party products. Favors, paper designs and other supplies that are not purchased exclusively by Madeline’s Room may be used but will incur a service charge depending on the scope of what is needed.

We offer our decorating services to clients in Dutchess County, Westchester, New York City, New Jersey, Long Island, and some parts Connecticut. Long distance service can be arranged.
Can I make changes to my decoration plan?
Yes, changes may be made up to 2 weeks prior to your scheduled event date. Changes that are requested less than 2 weeks prior, may be accommodated but will incur additional service charges.
What if I need to cancel?
Confirmed orders may not be cancelled but may be rescheduled up to one (1) time with a minimum of 7 days notice prior to the event date. Clients who do not honor our 7 day cancellation policy may be subject to total forfeiture of services. All deposits and payments made on confirmed orders are non-refundable.
I had to cancel my event due to inclement weather or other natural disaster. How does this affect my service order?
In the event of inclement weather conditions, terrorist attacks, natural disasters, or other circumstances beyond our control, we reserve the right to reschedule services. Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate confirmed services for the soonest available date.
How long will my balloon décor last?
The lifespan of our decorations depends on environmental conditions and if the décor is air-filled, or helium filled. A regular 11″ helium balloon has a lifespan of about 18 hours. We can extend the float time by using a special treatment to pre-seal the balloons prior to inflation. This can increase the float time by several days. Air-filled décor can last for days or even weeks under the right conditions.
I don't know what I want, can you help me figure it out?
Of course we can!!! We pride ourselves on working closely with our clients no matter what stage of event development they may be in. When you speak with one of our consultants, he/she will ask questions to gather information about your event to help you develop a decorating plan; which focuses your guests' attention on one focal point, or that helps create an overall ambiance throughout your event! If you have already determined your estimated budget, our designers can help by suggesting packages and décor arrangements that match your goals with your specific budget in mind.
