Beautifully Wonderful Stuffed balloons. How to make your gift stand out.

New to Creative Decorations – Stuffed balloons.

You may be thinking what are stuffed balloons?

Well its a balloon with gifts in it.

Stuffed balloons are perfect for any occasion and are suitable for the young and old.

From teddies, to sweets, to jewelry, they can all be displayed in a stuffed balloon. The recipient then has to POP the balloon to get their gift out.

And yes, I can put alcohol in there too.

Check out this video on my Facebook Page of this birthday gift being popped by the birthday girls daughter.

How does it work

All you need to do is, to bring me your gifts and I do all the rest. Its just a different way of wrapping your presents. There is a size limit on what I can do though, nothing to big, or it wont be able to fit in.

Having said that, I do supply a few different items for these balloons. Personalised teddies and personalised baby items. Who I get from the wonderful Sarah at Little Makes By Me. We have teamed up on a few different items to give you some great package deals. And we are currently chatting about what we can do together for Christmas!!

The above shows a personalised set – A blanket, a bid and a comforter. A perfect gift to take to a baby shower or to give to a new mum.

Stuffed Balloons are also the way that annoying little man can arrive at the beginning of December. These will be available to pre order soon.

Would you like to get the gifts you have bought someone put in a stuffed balloon? Or are you interested in some personalised gifts to put into a balloon?

You can also choose to have your balloons personalised.

A Guide to having a Balloon Hoop at your special occasion.

Balloon hoop / moon gate / wreath

Whichever name your prefer to call them, they are so on trend right now.

The top 5 places to have a balloon hoop is:

  • Weddings
  • Baby showers
  • Birthday Parties
  • Communions
  • Halloween Parties

I offer 2 different sizes of balloon hoops – A large hoop or a small hoop.

My large hoop is a hire item & will need to be collected after your event and the small hoops are your to keep.

Both designs can have the balloons displayed in all different ways from, half designs, to full designs.

Large Hoop Design

If you want to make a feature out of you balloon décor, this is way to go.

Standing at just over 6ft tall a large hoop / moon gate will WOW your guests.

The most popular way is have the hoop as a backdrop for your cake. Either framing the cake or having it as a backdrop, so there is still plenty of room for you to have your photos taken with it too.

Small Hoop Designs

If you looking for something a bit smaller. Maybe for a smaller house party or a birthday gift for someone, a small hoop is perfect for this.

You can hang them, or sit them on a table.

You can have names, letters or words, ages added or themed ones – Take a look below to see the Halloween themed one!

I hope this has given you some different ideas about adding a balloon hoop into your special occasion. Contact me if you want to chat about your event and if you need even more inspiration take a look at my Pinterest board.

Garden Parties

With most venues still being closed and people having to social distance. Garden parties are the way to go this summer for all your celebrations.

Birthday parties, baby showers, anniversaries, retirement parties and anything else you want to celebrate, can be done this way.

Make sure you keep up to date with all the latest guidelines to ensure you are keeping everyone safe and if you do this, you will still be able to have a great party.

Once you have done this and worked out who you can have round to party, you will need to think of your balloon decoration.

Here a few ideas for you –

Balloon Arches

Pink and white balloon arch for garden parties

Do you know What style do you want? There are sooo many!!

An air filled design is much better for outside, so this narrows it down slightly, but then you need to decide if you want a full arch or half an arch, maybe a garland would be better for what space you have.

Then you need to think of colours, do you want it one colour, mixed colours and do you want themed balloons added?

Balloon walls

Perfect for any occasion.

It can hide a space you might not like and provides the perfect backdrop for photos.

Letter balloons

These can be hung on a fence and spell out what ever you would like. Letter balloons come in 2 different sizes, so if there isn’t much room, the smaller balloons will be perfect.

Number Balloons

If you celebrating a birthday, you cant forget those big numbers, why not make them even bigger buy having them made into a display.

Personalised Balloons

So popular right now!!

Just something a bit extra for the person who is celebrating. You can have whatever message you would like added. Or perfect to take as a gift if you have been invited to a garden party.

Gender reveal Balloons

If you planning on telling everyone what the sex the baby is, my giant gender reveal balloons are the perfect way of doing this. And if you don’t fancy hosting a garden party to do it, you will still be able to show everyone while hosting an online party.

I hope this has given you some great ideas balloon wise, for your summer garden parties. If you would like to chat to me about any of these ideas you can contact me here

Balloon Number Displays

Balloon Number displays

Balloon specialists like myself can do so much more with your number balloons.

Why just have a floating single number when you can have a balloon display and make a feature out of the number balloon.

Pink balloon number display

You can have personalisation added, themed balloons added, small numbers or big numbers there so many different options.

small number balloon display

All these designs are air filled too, which makes them longer lasting, so as well as looking so much more impressive, you will be able to enjoy them for longer.

As well as being the perfect item for your birthday party they would make a great surprise for a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary, why wait for one the main significant years, why not just do any year.

A new trend which started last year is balloon mosaics –

Big number balloon display

These are big 5ft letters filled with balloons and make a great addition to any party.

I make all my balloon mosaics to order and yes they are a bit more expensive than your normal number balloons, but you get to take them after the party.

I hope this has given you some thought on what you can do differently for your next birthday.

Which number balloon displays do you prefer?

And if you still do just want your number balloons helium filled, of course i can do that.

As always if you do need more inspiration, head over to my Pinterest board board all about balloon number displays.

Until next time,

Arches of fun!

As a balloon decorator, Balloon arches are such a huge big part of our business. If you are looking for an element to take your next celebration to the next level, whether you’re hosting a birthday party, welcoming a new baby or celebrating a hen party, a balloon arch is just what your party needs and I can create just about anything for you!

Balloon arches are such a wonderful way to set the scene, bringing attention and colour to any event. When used outdoors, they work fabulously well for sporting events, the opening of new shops or businesses, and to indicate where an event is happening to bring in the crowds! Indoors, they are often used for entrance decor, welcoming and greeting guests as they arrive at their event. For theme events and parties, they can create a big statement and are often used as backdrops for photo opportunities.

The great thing about balloon arches is that I can make them in so many different ways to suit your event. Below is a list of ways you can use balloon arches and the impact they make!

Weddings

use a balloon arch for the entrance of your reception area, to go over your dancefloor or over your cake stand. We will match the balloons to your theme and your wedding day colours.

Birthday Parties

use for the entrance to your hall, venue or your home!

Baby Showers

colour coordinate your balloons to the gender or have lovely neutral colours. These look great on a wall over your food, cake or present table!

Fayres and Fetes

Draw the crowds in with our eye-catching displays! Our balloon arches are suitable for outdoor weather and look fantastic against a blue-sky back drop.

Openings

Again, attract the crowds with a balloon arch at your grand opening to create that wow factor! Great for press photos.

Photo Backdrops

put a balloon arch anywhere and there you have a great photo opportunity! Create a perfect photo booth backdrop with an arch.

Festivals

Adding a pop of colour to any outdoor festival entrance or over the stage for performances.

You can use Balloon Arches in so many different ways and they add so much fun and excitement to an event. For competitive quotes for your event, contact me today!

Until next time,

Air filled balloons

No Helium? No Problem!

Air filled balloon heart

Of course, Creative Decorations believe that no party is complete without a balloon. As far as I am concerned one single balloon can create a party and look amazing! Balloons are a staple of every party, but some venues say no to helium balloons!

If your venue has given you a big fat NO, do not fret! I have some awesome alternatives here for you. It turns out, there’s a lot you can do with balloons, even without helium. So here are my favourite air filled balloons for you to ensure your party still looks just as fabulous!

Balloon Arches:

Air filled balloon arches bring the WOW factor to every event I have done them for and are a great addition to any party or wedding. Whether you choose them to be at the entrance or as part of the feature on the cake table. Simply let me know your colour scheme and let me do all the hard work for you.

Balloon Walls:

Air filled balloon wall

What better backdrop for your evening photobooth than a balloon wall! These look fab in different colours and really create a perfect ‘selfie’ moment for your guests.

Balloon Centrepieces:

Air filled letter balloons

These always look really cool. We can create just about anything for you! Balloon topiary tree’s look great and are different to your normal centerpieces. Your guests will be impressed with how lovely these look at your event.

Air filled Hanging Ceiling balloons

Hanging balloons:

There is no reason why you can’t have air filled balloons attached to the ceiling, and this can be done easily without helium and still looks great.

Attach to the walls:

This works great for balloon letters to spell out a name or phrase. Maybe to go behind the new ‘Mr & Mrs’ at your wedding meal, or to spell out ‘Dance’ next to the dancefloor. The possibilities are endless and there are almost no restrictions.

Balloon Garlands:

Balloon garlands are so simple to create and look beautiful. This is a really good way to use balloons, even in an outdoor setting as they won’t blow away!

We hope this shows you that you do not need helium to decorate your venue and create a beautiful looking space for your event. So, for your next event consider one of these air filled balloon decorating ideas! if you need more inspiration, head over to my Pinterest board

Balloon Decorators – Why you need one

Balloon Decorators- Why You Need One

So, you’re planning a special event, maybe a wedding reception or a birthday party, and you want to incorporate balloons in some way. In this blog, we are going to let you know WHY you should hire a professional balloon decorator rather than doing it yourself or getting someone unqualified in to cut costs.

Hiring one of our professionals allows you to completely relax and enjoy every bit of the party, without feeling the pressure. With that said, you may still be having doubts as to whether you need to hire a specialist for your next party, so here are some more reasons to give us a try:

1.You will be too busy dealing with other things on party day

It’s impossible and stressful trying to be sociable with everyone at your party anyway, making sure all your guests are entertained and keeping an eye on the kids/animals/drunk friends to make sure they stay out of trouble, without the added stress of trying to organise balloon arches, and balloon walls! Creative Decorations will take all of that stress away, we’ve got you covered.

2. Disposable canisters never expel the full amount stated

True story! I get lots of last minute calls from people who use disposable canisters and quickly realise it’s not enough for the required number of balloons they need. I’ve also had panicked phone calls from mums and dads who have spent the whole night before their child’s party filling up heaps of balloons, only to find by the morning, the balloons are on the floor!
Hiring a professional means that the set up for parties/weddings/events will be done the night before and your balloons will still be floating by morning. Win!

3.You were just going to ask one of your friends or family to take care of the balloons

Firstly, they’re guests and are probably keen to have fun too. Secondly, are you sure that you want to risk having a potential disaster with the balloons just to save a few quid?

4. Buying cheap balloons online doesn’t always save you money

Especially if you have to end up doing it twice. Cheap foil balloons online don’t always float and small foil balloons are not suitable for helium so will also not float!
We used to offer a balloon filling service but do not anymore. Why? Because of the amount of bad quality balloons we were being asked to fill. Most were not suitable for helium and would never last the duration of an event.

Here’s a few points to remember when hiring us as your balloon decorator:

1. Creative Decorations are fully trained and insured
2. We do the job for you, allowing you more time to get ready for your event

3. Our balloons are QUALITY and will last the duration of your event and beyond!

Remember cheap is not always best

Until next time,

Letter Balloons

 Letter Balloons

Letter balloons are becoming increasingly popular bringing that ‘WOW’ factor and talking point to any event. These letter balloons are all over our Pinterest and Instagram feeds right now, and we’re not complaining! This trend is so fun and perfect for all occasions.

They are perfect for everything from baby showers and weddings to company events/exhibitions, birthdays and more even school proms! There are  a variety of different colours, even the new on trend Rose gold!

We offer two different sizes of letter balloons;

Hoop with Letter Balloons

Large 34″ which are helium filled and can be put in an arch or on individual weights. These foil balloons will float with helium for several days.


The smaller 16″ are proving to be very popular also. They can only be air filled and need to be hung up as they cannot float, adding them to a hoop just adds something a bit different.

Here are some cool ways you can use our funky letter balloons to spell it out

Engagement Letter Balloons

1. Birthdays! Rather than having the number 1, spell out ONE for your little darling or have their names up in helium!


2. Engagements! LOVE in huge letters is always a hit, or simply ENGAGED is bound to get everyone at the party talking.

Mr & Mrs Letter Balloons

3. Wedding Day! Mr & Mrs looks fab, you can even have balloons above the cake or as a backdrop to the dance floor.

Baby Letter Balloons


4. Baby showers! The words BOY or GIRL looks great, or even BABY. Someone recently had BORN TO BE WILD! Get creative!

So next time you’re looking for a fun and unique addition to your party or event, why not consider our letter balloons?

Until next time,

Helen
