More and more funerals are becoming a celebration of a person’s life and as a final gesture many modern funeral services are concluded with a balloon release, either at the graveside or outside a crematorium. With children in particular it is a memorable and final way of either saying goodbye or sending a message to a loved one as they watch their balloon ascend into the sky. It also helps to give comfort, and depending on your faith, helps to symbolise the soul or spirit rising toward the sky and the letting go of the physical presence of a relative or friend. Written messages can be rolled up and inserted into the balloon prior to inflation or a message can be written on the outside of the balloon prior to release.
Only latex balloons without ribbon or plastic balloon valves attached can be released into the atmosphere. Latex balloons are made of 100% natural, biodegradable latex and under normal conditions will degrade in the same time as a leaf from an oak tree, no damage to the environment. We can both inflate and deliver balloons to a site or we can supply the balloons and balloon gas for you to do it yourself.
