    I've used Celebrations many times for various festivities I've hosted over the years. From birthdays to graduations, themed parties from Casino Night to Back Yard Olympics, Kim has always set the tone with wonderful balloon creations. She is experienced, a pleasure to work with, and brings many creative ideas to the party. I look forward to working with Celebrations again in the future!

About Celebrations

Kim Durfee, along with her husband Dan, opened Celebrations Party Store in Saratoga Springs, NY in 1996.  Immediately upon opening, customers started asking Kim to create centerpieces, arches, columns and much more for their events.  She quickly fell in love with everything balloon related especially being able to chime into her creative side with the event décor.  By 1998 they decided to close the retail store so that they could completely devote Celebrations to balloons.  After establishing a large client base, Kim was able to raise her three children while being able to completely rely on repeat customers and word of mouth.  Now that the kids are getting older, Kim is delighted to devote herself full time again to bringing the joy of balloons to many more clients throughout the Saratoga, Lake George and Capital District Area.  The possibilities are endless when it comes to balloons making education in the industry so important.  Kim is a long time member of the Qualatex Balloon Network and thoroughly enjoyed attending the 2016 World Balloon Convention in New Orleans (along with 900 other delegates from all over the world.) She was thrilled to bring all of that new knowledge back to her staff and clients.

Frequently Asked Questions

We love to use balloons outside, and they do make an impressive visual impact. We do everything possible to ensure the endurance of balloons for an outdoor event; however, we cannot guarantee their longevity as weather greatly impacts how balloons fair outside. Due to their light weight, wind can cause damage to them, and moving dust and debris may cause the balloons to pop. Also, exposure to summertime heat conditions forces balloons to expand, and they may pop.

Helium is environmentally safe, non-toxic and non flammable. Helium should not be inhaled, as it displaces the oxygen in your lungs, causing serious lung injuries. Do not inhale helium from a balloon or a helium tank under any circumstances.

Latex balloons are made from 100% natural latex — not plastic. Our latex balloons are biodegradable, and decompose as fast as an oak leaf in your backyard!

Most standard size (11”) latex balloons will float 10-18 hours.  The bigger the balloon the longer it will float.  Balloons can be treated with a substance known as Hi-Float that coats the inside of the balloon so that the helium does not escape as quickly.  Once the balloon is treated it can last for days under normal circumstances.  Mylar balloons will last much longer.
