  • FAQ | Soirée

    What type of parties and events do you provide services for? Everything! Seriously. We provide event design services for birthday parties, grand openings, bridal showers, baby showers, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, corporate events, holiday celebrations, pool parties and more. Our nationally certified florists and planners have decades of experience in wedding celebrations. We also have an arsenal of balloons and rentals for just about any theme you can think of. Throwing a stylish boho cocktail party? We have some beautiful table settings and rattan chairs. Need something for a Superbowl party? We have football decor to get excited about. How much do you charge for certain services? While every event is very unique try to list as many direct prices as we can. Our FAQ includes details about balloon costs. Many of our rentals have the prices listed on their individual rental pages. For everything else, check out our Packages pages. We're more than happy to make adjustments to a package for your event and it can be used as a great starting point. How much does a balloon arch cost? TLDR: Anywhere from $25-$60 per foot Like any highly customized service, the cost of a balloon arch is dependent on many different factors: Size, length and complexity of the garland Variation of individual balloon colors and sizes Quality of the balloons Use of special material latex balloons (like chrome, pearl, printed, agate, etc.) Seasonal price changes (some balloons are harder to find and more expensive to order, like orange and black balloons in October) Any addons, like faux flowers or mylar balloons With all that in mind, balloon arches can cost anywhere from $200 to $2,000+. But don't worry about the list above. A seasoned balloon artist will work with you and your budget so that you feel excited about both your new garland and the price without the headache! We can make anything beautiful with what matters most to you. I bought my own balloons, can you help me set them up? Unfortunately, no. At Soirée, we use professional premium balloons that we know can withstand the strains that a balloon installation demands. That being said, if you have specially ordered balloons that you just need helium for in addition to other event work, we can definitely help with that! How long do balloon arches last? We use professional quality balloons. If cared for indoors, balloon arches will last months. I have some set up in my house that still look good-as-new two months later. Balloons exposed to the elements, however, may only last a few days since the latex will degrade more quickly. How far in advance should I order a balloon installation? Our fast teams can work around your busy schedule but Weekend availability books fast. We recommend booking a few months in advance to make sure there is an open spot for your day. How far in advance should I book a florist? Most florists are booked within 6-8 months in advance of a wedding, but it's never too late to ask! Our team of professionals are exceptional in an emergency. Who makes balloon arches? We do! Our team is composed of professional and talented balloon artists that can make elegant balloon arches just for you.

  • What is the best way to do party rentals?

    When you're planning an event for a lot of people, you tend to need a lot of furniture. Or maybe you have a fun theme in mind and want to rent some fun extra things for a day. There could be tables to consider, chair rentals, table settings, decor, and more. It can be a lot and there are a lot of rental companies out there that all do things a little differently. Whether you're new to big events, or a seasoned veteran, you might be thinking, "okay. Now what is the best possible way I can setup this event?" This is important. And this isn't me trying to sell you on us. DEFINITELY hire a company that sets up parties for you. Seriously. Setting up an event can be draining (or even infeasible depending on the scale) and leave you sweaty when you should be getting ready! The chance of injury is not worth it at all either. Hiring some extra hands has plenty of perks as well. Being drunk and tired at the end of the day, having to clean up all the rentals and figure out how you're going to return them sounds like pure pain. Some companies even offer design consultation as well, so that you have all the help you need picking the right table rentals, bounce house rentals and more for your specially themed event. Okay, that time I was selling you on us. We're a team of designers. We also have rentals. We also do setup and teardown. We work with other nearby rental companies as well and manage all of the sourcing and headache for you. It's a lot of work. Work that you don't have to do! If you can afford it and even if you don't end up going with us, or we're unavailable, PLEASE save yourself the trouble. By the time you're halfway setting up the chairs and you pull something, it might be too late. Healing injuries is unfortunately a service we do not provide.

  • Champagne Inspired Fête

    We just got our photos back from our absolutely stunning wedding reception at Cross + Main. As I'm sure you can guess from the photos, we did the floral thing... like a lot. The satin blue table linens looked fabulous between the abundant greenery and opulent blush flowers. The blue glass demijohns really nailed the bride's dream wedding as well. Overall, the guests were blown away. It really felt like you stepped into a vineyard dreamland. Included in the table settings were ornate chargers, beautiful custom menus and personalized place cards to show the guests how much their presence was appreciated. Everyone felt special that day. The tables were decorated with tall lofted floral pieces with more of that lush greenery, blush florals and matching blue detail flowers as well. We really went ham with the flowers. You should have seen the table runner florals with gorgeous vintage tapered candles and votives scattered about. Throw in some matching blue napkins with silver flatware and you've got a seamless, breathtaking reception space. Oh. My. God. The dessert table. We brought the Pittsburgh cookie table to a new level. There were so many delicious options, all of them gone by the end of the night. My favorite were the macaroons the bride was generous to share with us. I still dream of that table. The sweetheart table was something else too. Soft velvet grey chairs and etherial bud vases behind a row of florals made for such a gorgeous scene. And yes, the bride cried when she saw it. Custom welcome signs, stunning floral chandeliers and a bouquet to make friends jealous. What more could you want? We only wish we could do it all again... and maybe we will! Thanks again to the bride and groom. We love you all!

  • Whimsical Purple Wedding Reception

    It was a beautiful Saturday evening at Leslie-Alford-Mims House when our wonderful friends celebrated their union with family from all over the globe. With ornate table settings and a welcoming violet color palette, guests were ready to dine and party until the sun went down. We couldn't imagine a more perfect picture. The vibrant flowers and lively entertainment made for a truly energetic night. The adult sized white bounce house with a slide, Anna, was a huge hit as well. It certainly gave the parents a chance to relax. But I would be lying if I said that it was only kids having fun in the bounce house. Even the bride and groom couldn't resist jumping around! It truly was a magical night. Thanks again Leslie-Alford-Mims House! We'll be back real soon.
