Funky Swirl Balloon Arch

The Task

So we had a booking recently for a basic swirl balloon arch.  Nothing too technical.  It had to go outside for a Pub refurbishment.  It was to look something like this.

The stock was ordered.  Ready for the job, it was a last minute job and thats where the problem started.  Due to problems beyond our control the stock which was ordered in time never arrived leaving us with only half the balloons for the project.

The Re-design

So what do you do when your stock has not arrived and you have to set up for the customer at 7:30am on a Saturday morning and it is 5:00pm on Friday night and you only have half the required stock?

You put your thinking caps on and get creative.  We looked at what stock we had and decided to incorporate some Quick-links and 160q’s.

The Funky Swirl Balloon Arch was born

We put the following design together.

The customer loved the finished design.  This just goes to show how versatile we at For Every Occasion Balloon Artists Ltd can be.


Wedding Fun in a Marquee

This Sunday we had the pleasure of decorating a wedding for a lovely couple Louise & Chris.

The venue was the Faenol Fawr Hotel in Bodelwyddan.  We had been asked to highlight 4 key areas at the wedding, the entrance, the cake table, the top table and the dance floor.

By the door. we went for a simple champagne bottle pillar, personalised with a message chosen by the Bride & Groom.

For the Cake Table, we created a very simple string of pearl arch and accented it with our very popular Lootle Bride and Groom characters.

The top table, being one of the main focal points of the wedding day, was decorated using our stunning heart frame.  The use of an ivory heart surrounding a purple heart in the centre and a clear heart around the outside works as a perfect backdrop for the bride and groom whilst sat at the top table.

For the dance floor, the couple wanted a wow factor that was also elegantly stunning and classy.  We surrounded the dance floor with 4 of our elegant pillars.  These were then linked to the centre point of the dance floor to create a beautiful canopy.  In the centre of the canopy we suspended a 3ft exploding balloon that, when remotely detonated by the DJ, showered the happy couple with 100 balloons, perfect for any wedding day.

The Bride & Groom were absolutely delighted with what we had created and couldn’t believe how our balloons transformed the marquee and gave that ‘WOW’ factor which we all seek to create. Great result for us.
