Please note that ordering inflated balloons and balloon arrangements can only be done through our store in Newcastle, NSW. Due to the nature of transporting helium there is no option to order inflated balloons through our online store. All balloons purchased online are shipped flat and uninflated. Please contact us if you would like any further information or would like to organise inflated balloons and arragnements to be picked up from our Newcastle store.
Since 2003 Shindigs has been helping Novacastrians decorate their parties and functions with balloons and balloon decorations! From smaller air-filled centrepieces, to helium-filled table and floor height arrangements, archways and more! Our friendly staff will help you throughout the whole process - from choosing the right colours and design all the way to the day that your creations get delivered or picked up. We even show you how to do them yourselves!
If you are wanting to inflate the balloons yourself click here for more information.

We love balloons and love talking about balloons. We love inflating and arranging balloons for our customers and can create some amazing effects with balloons. We have been inflating, arranging & delivering balloons across Newcastle for the last 15 years. Most of the time balloons are pure fun, but please be aware of the following ....
..... By their very nature, balloons are extremely fragile. Very occasionally, they will fail due to their fragile nature. This is not something we can foresee or predict. This is not something we like. This is something we hate. We work really hard to make sure our customers are happy 100% of the time!
..... Balloons are very easily damaged – sometimes by touching them onto things. We cannot be held responsible if this happens.
...... Balloons are affected by temperature – both the heat and the cold affect what happens to their size and their float time. We go to great lengths to educate our customers on how best to care for balloons, in terms of their storage and transportation. Once balloons leave our store, however, we cannot be held responsible for what happens to them.
......To keep failures to an absolute minimum, we use only the highest quality balloons – Decrotex, Qualatex, Anagram are just a few of the leading global balloon brands that we use. Within the “balloon world” these are considered the best quality balloons available.
..... Wherever possible, we inflate balloons with sufficient lead time, so that any fault in the balloon would become apparent to our staff before the balloon leaves the store. It would then be replaced at that time.
...... Treating a clear balloon with Hifloat (to prolong its life) can make a clear balloon look cloudy. We do not advise treating clear balloons with Hifloat. Extreme heat can also make a clear balloon look cloudy. We always inflate clear balloons as late as possible, but on a super hot day, we cannot be held responsible if clear balloons do go slightly cloudy.
..... Each week, we inflate and arrange thousands of balloons. The failure rate of balloons we use is less than 1%. When we are delivering balloons for customers, we always carry spares and will fix and replace any balloon that fails during the delivery process, up until the time the driver has handed over the balloons. If anything happens beyond that time, we require the customer to bring the faulty balloon back to Shindigs and we’ll investigate the issue and respond appropriately.
...... Where customers collect and transport inflated balloons themselves (or helium tanks), regardless of the distance (short or far), or regardless of the lack of time a customer might have to come back to Shindigs, our warranty remains that it is the customer’s responsibility to return them to Shindigs in the event of a problem. When the balloons are returned we’ll then investigate the issue and respond appropriately. We cannot travel from Shindigs to your location in the unlikely event that a balloon has a fault that is only evident after you have left the store.
..... If a customer is unable (due to lack of time or distance) to return the balloon on the day, we request that a customer supplies a date and time stamped photograph which clearly shows the problem or fault that will allow us to respond to that issue accordingly.
..... We are happy to inflate balloons for customers that have not been purchased from Shindigs. We accept no responsibility for the failure of any balloon not purchased at Shindigs, whether this is evident whilst the balloon is in our store, or after it has left.
..... Enjoy your balloons. Fill your parties with balloons, but remember ...... a balloon is just a balloon, and like all of us, sometimes a balloon isn’t perfect.
