The many shades and simple shapes of these hot air balloon garlands add a whole lot of colour and  happiness to baby showers and children's birthday parties, and after the party they are perfect to decorate your baby's nursery or children's play-room. In even the slightest breeze the balloons spin to reveal their beautiful colours. They also look fantastic in a cluster.

This listing is for a SINGLE STRING, as shown in the last image. It measures just under 4 feet long and features 6 hot air balloons made from 3 inch layered circles, with puffy white clouds in between.

These look fantastic in clusters - and are available in a value pack of either 6, 9 or 12 garlands here - http://etsy.me/1OzvqTm .

You can choose any colour combination from the drop-down menu, or customise the colours to your needs (see 'Colours' below)

● PRODUCT DETAILS ●

○ 6 balloons & 6 clouds per string
○ Each balloon is made from 3 layers of coloured paper
○ Each balloon measures 7.5cm (3 inches) wide
○ Sewn together with clear thread
○ Garland is approximately 110cm (43 inches) long
○ Hand-made with love in Cape Town, South Africa

● COLOURS ●

If you would like the garlands in the colours you see in the photos, choose 'pastels' from the drop-down menu. Alternatively you can choose any of the colour combinations used in my hot air balloon mobiles. (See those colours here - http://etsy.me/1EIAvp8)

If you would like your colours customised please choose CUSTOM COLOURS from the dropdown menu, and specify the colours you require in the message to seller (at checkout). I charge a nominal fee of $4.00 for custom colours, because of the additional time this takes.

● FINISH ●

Choose between the following two finishes at the top of the garland:

LOOP OF SATIN RIBBON
Best for low ceilings, where the garland can hang right below the ceiling.

METRE OF THREAD
Better for higher ceilings, where you want some space between the ceiling and the top of the garland. The thread can always be cut or tied in a loop if a metre is too long for your purposes. All you need is a tiny hook in the ceiling, or for short-term decorating, strong masking tape will do the trick - the garlands are very lightweight.

● RELATED PRODUCTS ●

All my hot air balloon garlands are also available as mobiles, single balloons, and party packs of several garlands at a discounted rate. Please see my shop sections for all available options. If you don't see what you're after, please drop me a line.

● SHIPPING ●

Shipping from South Africa takes 10 -15 working days minimum. Australian customers should expect a longer wait as parcels go through a strict customs clearance, so please allow about 30 days.

Please note that orders can be delayed due to circumstances that are entirely beyond my control, and I allow up to 40 working days from shipping to delivery. Please do get in touch with me directly should you be concerned regarding your order.

If you need your order to arrive sooner, there is an option to expedite your shipping. All expedited international parcels are shipped via DHL and take 2-4 working days to reach you. Just choose expedited shipping at checkout.

Shipping within South Africa is done via overnight courier, to your door.

Please remember that shipping around any holiday can be very unpredictable, so it's best to order your items in advance to avoid disappointment.

● POLICIES ●

If, for whatever reason, you are not entirely happy with your purchase, please let me know as soon as possible, and I will make every effort to rectify the situation.

Before purchasing please take a moment to read the Shipping and Policies tab in this listing, and if you are in any doubt, please message me directly.

Frequently asked questions about youngheartslove

Yes. I can create custom colorways for many of the mobiles. You can select "Custom Colours' from the drop-down menu on most items. Just contact me to discuss if needed, I will do my best to make something that you absolutely love! Custom mobiles are not eligible for discounts or promotions.
A metre of fishing line is included with each mobile, so they can be easily hung from a small hook in the ceiling. (Please note that the hook is NOT included with the mobiles, but can be purchased at any hardware store and some supermarkets.)

My mobiles are not toys for children and are intended for decoration only. If you are going to hang one of my mobiles in a child’s room it should be hung well out of arms reach and as the child learns to stand you should adjust the mobile again.
