Why Celebrate with us?

Balloons are what we do

BPB is not a party store. We do what we know we're best at, and we're balloon gurus! We boast an inventory with hundreds of foil balloon choices, over 60 latex balloon varieties, and unlimited options for designs. Come into the shop to look through our sample books and talk to a balloon pro. We always offer a free 15 minute consultation.

Current Hours: Due to COVID-19 we are not open regular hours to assist customers in store. However, we are offering delivery gifts and arrangments. Our business has is facing challenges during this time, but we know everyone is, so we are committed to providing joy through balloons as long as we are allowed. Check our our E-store for single arrangement Deliveries.

About Us

  • Milford Connecticut:
    572 Boston Post Rd. Milford, CT 06460

    Beach Party Balloons opened April 2016 in Milford, in Walnut Beach (hence the name "Beach Party"). After only a year the store was moved to Bridgeport Ave. where the store has more visibility and space for inventory & décor building.

  • How it all started...

  • Beach Party Balloons was started by artist, Melissa Bertrand. Ms. Bertrand holds a BFA in Illustration from Maryland Institute College of Art (2005). Melissa started BPB's sister company, Painted You - Creative Entertainment, in 2004. Painted You has been providing fun, family friendly entertainment solutions like face painting and balloon twisting services for corporate events and private parties since then. In 2013, Melissa discovered balloon decor and began her training and earning her CBA (Certified Balloon Artist)credentials in 2015 at the World Balloon Convention.
