Can you ship balloons?

Unfortunately, no! Because we have not mastered the art of flying balloons directly to your house (yet), we can only provide balloon orders to DC, Maryland, and Virginia.


How far ahead should I place my custom order?

We ask that you place your custom order 10 days before your event date. All of our orders are handmade especially for you, so we require ample time in order to provide the best products possible.


What is the process for a custom order?

First, you’ll fill out our custom order form. On this form, you’ll be asked the event type, event date, product selection, and additional details to make sure we know how to best replicate your vision. Next, you’ll receive a confirmation email letting you know that we have received your order. During this period, please feel free to contact us with any modifications to your order or additional information that you might have forgotten.


What does “custom” mean?

Custom can be whatever you want it to be! Whether you want a monogrammed canvas, all red dinosaurs, or a whole party backdrop, we’ve got you covered. Just specify your in your order what you’d like from us, and we’ll make sure it comes true!


How do you calculate shipping?

Shipping is currently a flat rate of $5 per order, until we figure out the most cost effective way to send all of these party animals. If you would like your order expressed to you, please send a message to molly@thepetitepartyanimal.com and we can work something out so that your goodies arrive quickly!


Can little babies and children play with these cute painted animals?

Unfortunately not. These animals, both the ones on canvas and the ones that are sold individually (coming soon!), are very tempting for tiny, inquisitive fingers. My own daughter has tried to grab them on more than one occasion. But these are meant for decor purposes only. They are painted with non-toxic paint, so not to worry, but please refrain from letting the little ones play with these cute pieces of art.
