There are times when certain celebrations revolve around numbers. It can be a celebration for reaching certain goals or just a number representing the age of somebody who has their birthday. Balloon decorations can be done by using standard yard numbers which are usually six-eight feet tall. These are generally built on a moveable weighted base and can stay up for hours. However, if you request, we can even help you to decorate your outdoor space with giant yard numbers which can be up to ten feet tall!
