Latex Balloon Policy
No arrangements or bouquets that contain latex balloons will be accepted. Because the latex proteins become airborne when one of these balloons pops, it could predispose anyone in the vicinity to a potentially dangerous allergic reaction; for this reason, we will no longer allow latex in our facilities.
