NetworkIn backdrop

NetworkIn Festive Shindig

We worked with NetworkIn‘s corporate colours of teal, white and orange to decorate our backdrop with their logo and wrap it in a matching balloon garland for the festive party. We can customise this backdrop with logos or a message, have a look at our hire items section.

The table centrepieces were simple but elegant with large white balloons with luxury teal and orange ribbon trimmings.

40th and 50th Elegant Swirls Bouquets

Joint 40th & 50th Birthday Party

We were at the North Stafford Hotel in Stoke On Trent bright and early to setup for this joint 40th and 50th birthday party for an aunt and niece duo.

We decorated the tables with balloon bouquets using the Qualatex Elegant Swirls range in black and silver – each bouquet had a numbered foil balloon and two coordinating latex.

We also delivered matching pairs of silver numbers – a 40 and 50.

The team at Amy Louise

Amy Louise Beauty salon’s 4th Anniversary

There was a sleepless night worrying about what to do for Amy Louise Beauty salon’s 4th anniversary celebrations. The salon area is light, bright, very tidy, organised and minimalist and we didn’t want the balloons to clutter that space up.

In the end we suggested to Amy to go with helium filled Anagram Balloons satin star bouquets on the end of each of the beauty stations which kept the light and airy feel but still hi-lighted the celebrations.

We added an organic demi arch from the shared reception area with Blonde all in the coordinating Sempertex violet and silver colour-scheme.

For the reception desk for the salon’s 4th anniversary we personalised a helium filled bubble balloon with silver vinyl and added the mini violet balloons inside.

Balloon Arch Finish Lines

I’m delighted to be working with three local charities on the balloon arch finish lines for their festive fun runs. I specialise in making each arch different and the great thing about these events is you don’t have to run; dress up, run, jog or walk while being sponsored to help these great causes.

First up is the Alpha Omega Merry Mile for Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity on 30th November in Queen’s Park Crewe.

Shortly followed just over a week later by Santa Dash 2019 for Alice Charity in Hanley Park on 8th December.

And finally we have Hope House & Tŷ Gobaith and the Nantwich Santa Dash on 15th December in the town centre.

Churches Mansion

Baby Shower at Churche’s Mansion

The stunningly beautiful Churches Mansion in Nantwich was the setting for Alex’s prosecco and afternoon tea Baby Shower.

The colour scheme was rose gold and confetti. We delivered two bubble balloons to go either side of the fire place with rose gold, confetti and pearl white latex floor standing bouquets to dress the space.

We also delivered table bouquets in the same arrangements.

The Little Paper Shop

The Little Paper Shop

The Little Paper Shop in Nantwich commissioned us to decorate the front of their new premises for their invited guests preview evening to be followed by their grand opening the next day.

We built an organic demi arch in pearl white and embellished it with flowers and smaller balloons to match their teal, fuchsia pink and grey colour scheme.

It made a real statement on Hospital Street in Nantwich with many people stopping to admire it.

Balloon Arch

Ball Balloon Arch

A balloon arch works so well to draw people in to your event plus it makes a great spot for photographs too.

This star point arch was used at the entrance to a ball room leading people in down the red carpet to the drinks reception and dining hall. It’s elegant and tied in with the night’s colour scheme in dark and silvery colours.

Ambiance Salon's balloon scissors

Ambiance Salon’s 4th Birthday

Ambiance wanted something special to celebrate their 4th birthday and I suggested some balloon scissors for their window in Hartshill, Stoke on Trent.

 

They were built in chrome silver and rose gold balloons for a stunning impact in the salon window immediately drawing interest.

 

The response on social media was huge!

Matt's 40th

Party bomb!

We party bombed Matt’s desk at KFH Network to celebrate his 40th birthday!

A giant silver 40, lots of ribbons and balloons attached to the ceiling and a garland of balloons along the cubicle divider, it made a real impact!

I turn up with these fully prepared and they take about half an hour to install with banners, confetti and lots of balloons. Get in touch and let me know who and when you want to #partybomb and we will make them smile!

Love Letters

Balloon Filled Love Letters

Today has been filled with so much information learning how to make these LOVE letters on a training course in Manchester. I’m about to start assembling my own so look out for some more pictures and information coming soon.

The great thing with these is they’re light weight so you could have members of your party holding them, move them around for different photo setups and have a lot of fun with them.

They will be available on a hire basis with added balloon garlands to match your colour scheme. Get in touch to discuss your plans or to commission your name in balloons!

Organic Balloon Arch

NetworkIn Summer Ball

Backdrop and Balloon Garland
Photo Backdrop

All dressed up for the NetworkIn Summer Ball. A creative, unconstrained arch behind the podium in the logo colours of teal, white and a touch of orange.

A customised backdrop for photos wrapped in a garland of balloons in the same colours.

The room has a low ceiling so centrepieces have been kept simple with bubble balloons wrapped in a string of lights.

Pretty and effective.

2020 Celebrations

In a previous chapter in my life I ran a pub and in July one year I was asked if we were doing Christmas Day lunch so now we are in July I’m posting this.

People do plan really far ahead so if you’ve got the end of the year in mind why not consider a stunning photo frame like this for your guests and visitors?  Great for a party at home or in a venue.

Get in touch for more information.

Bride

Wedding celebrations

Sam and Terry got married on Saturday and we did the balloons!

A great setup with a bride and groom sculpture, a single pearl arch with customised heart centrepiece over the top table and then bouquets as table centrepieces in the silver and royal blue theme.

The photos were snapped while the venue was still being setup!

What was even more amazing was when I went back the following day the bride balloon was in almost perfect condition.

Organics Training Day

Balloon decor is generally classified as ‘classic’ or ‘organic’. Classic finds all the balloons a uniform size where as organic has varying sizes and today I’ve been on a course in Leeds working on some organic designs.

All of these things can be replicated to suit your colours or themes for your occasion. Such a fun course and so inspiring!

Berries Beans & Beer #bbbCrewe

I had a great time doing the balloons for Berries Beans & Beer #bbbCrewe #Crewe.
Along with the photo frame I made a flat pack arch, letters for the stage and decor for each bar. It really brightened the place!

Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year

It is #ChineseNewYear and #YearOfThePig. From chinesenewyear.net, people born in the year of the pig think logically and are able to fix whatever problem they’re in. They aren’t good communicators, but they’re kind and able to provide for the family. Most of them are wealthy. Their only obvious fault is that they lose their temper easily.⁣

Santa arch

Nantwich Santa Dash

The Santa Dash in Nantwich has happened for a few years now raising funds for the Merry Mile. I’ve been delighted to be asked to do an arch for the finish line.

With a Snowman on one side and Santa on the other and then a classic arch in green and white joining the two sections it was very festive.

(Edit: I’ve returned to this on 12/08/2019 and I can see so much room for improvement and the 2019 one will be awesome!).

The finish line for the Santa Dash is done, one snowman and one Santa (although the snowman’s nose gives him an uncanny resemblance to a penguin!).#balloonarch #christmasballoon #nantwich #hopehouse #santadash #5km #msballoons

Santa Visit

It’s been a great opportunity to make this Santa for the village school in Wybunbury. We smuggled him into the head teacher’s office before he is added to their Christmas display tomorrow in preparation for a visit from actual Santa 

I left some of my cards with the school office if you’re looking for any kind of balloon decorations or gifts – get in touch and we can have a chat about what you’re looking for.
