Balloon Walls Transform a Room

Are you looking for a creative way to showcase an event, product or brand?  Take look at another couple of balloon walls we created this weekend.

The first was for an under the sea themed event.

Under the sea

We created a wave effect wall and then embellished it with under the sea themed foil balloons.

Once you add stage lighting look at the difference.

For this event we also hung giant Octopi from the ceiling.

The same venue then had another function the following day for a Rock Festival.  For this event we went with a simple black balloon wall with the Qualatex Silver Chrome balloons to create the word Rock.

A Long Night For a Royal Wedding

A Long Night For a Royal Wedding

A couple of weeks before Harry and Megan were to tie the not we received an e-mail from a client asking us to create either a union jack split in half or 2 union jacks to go either side of a screen where they would be showing the Royal Wedding Live.

The catch was the client was a top attraction in London!  Not a problem for us – the West Coast Main line train means that we are only ever 2 and half hours from London.

Mike headed down to London for a site meeting with the client a week before the wedding to discuss the best options and confirm the measurements.  The order was placed and all the stock was ordered and shipped to site.

There was another obstacle.  The attraction closes to the public at 4pm, but as it was the night before the Royal Wedding they had a private event on so we could not get into the show space until Midnight.  This meant a long night was ahead of us.  Also due to the event on the evening it meant we had to inflate one floor above the space and then carry it all down.

We arrived on site on the Friday night and started inflating with 2 crew at 7pm.  We inflated the last balloon at midnight.  Then it was time to transfer the design down to the show floor in 48 pieces.  The construction and rigging took until 4:30am but the client was very impressed and the attraction was ready to open at 9:00am on the Saturday morning ready for the Royal Wedding.

Oh I haven’t said what the attraction was have I!  Our brief was to cover The Voice attraction in the one and only Madame Tussauds Wax Works to make it ready for the Royal Wedding.

Here are a few pictures of the decor in progress and the finished item.

It was a fantastic night.  Hard work but a great job for a lovely client.  One thing I will say is walking around Madame Tussauds at night with all those eyes watching you is a bit strange but we had plenty of famous company!

It’s All About Number Balloons!

It’s All About Number Balloons!

We are doing more and more milestone birthdays and anniversaries at the moment which is absolutely fantastic.  We are getting requests for decor incorporating the foil number balloons on a daily basis.  We wanted to show you a snippet of what can be achieved using those numbers rather than just having them inflated and put on a weight.

One of our bestselling designs is the ‘Fab & Funky Number’ displays with both the supersize numbers and the mini numbers.  The supersize numbers currently are available in silver, pink, blue and black so there is something to suit everyone and each one of those colours can be combined with other colours to compliment your event.  The mini numbers are currently readily available in silver but other colours are available to pre-order.

We can also create characters from Number balloons – again both big and small and also themed pieces which can personalised to suit your theme.

Another variety of displays is using a pole and display – both large numbers and mini numbers can create stunning decor pieces.

Another popular decor piece with the numbers is freestanding columns.  Again these can be done in colours to suit your event and they stand approximately 5ft tall.  This is one of my favourite colour combinations that we did recently.

Moving onwards from there – we can provide you with framed number sculptures.  Yet again they are available in any colours with or without lights!  They are very, very pretty.

And finally for today, one more idea – a completely frameless, freestanding 5ft balloon number sculpture available in numerous colours!  Very simple and very pretty balloon decor.

The possibilities are endless and we have just given you a few ideas to set your imagination running!  If you have an idea or a theme – just pop in and have a chat and we will discuss your requirements in more detail and work towards an affordable but stunning solution.

Remember, we are not just about balloons on a string!

 

Queen’s 90th Birthday Balloon Decor

Queen’s 90th Birthday Balloon Decor

So, just in case you missed it (not sure how though!) our beloved Queen celebrated her 90th Birthday on April 21st 2016  and the celebrations continue throughout May and June.  We know that a lot of places across the UK are planning street parties or other celebrations to mark the occasion, so we thought we would give you some ideas on how to spruce up your very own Royal Celebration with your very own Queen’s 90th Birthday Balloon Decor.

 

Happy Birthday
Happy 90th Birthday Your Majesty!

 

Your celebration decor doesn’t have to even mention the Queen’s actual birthday.  You can celebrate using the United Kingdom colours of red, white and blue.  Nothing is more eye-catching than these colours being used together.

If you’re a business you can celebrate too.  Nothing attracts attention to a shop or business premises like a balloon arch or display.  Balloons signify that something special is happening and people are naturally curious to find out what it is and so they will come and have a look.  An easy way to attract new custom.

For the Queen’s Jubilee a few years back, in conjunction with the White Rose Centre in Rhyl, we did a stunning display.  We inflated the balloons and constructed the pieces in full view of the public.  The attention it attracted was brilliant and people were coming back throughout the day to see how we were progressing.  Now Mike and I can both talk for Britain so it took us a lot longer than it should have done but nevertheless, it attracted attention which was the whole point.  Here’s what we built in the White Rose Centre.
