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

This may limit you on how much décor you could have or the size of the décor – for example do you have room for a balloon wall, or would you be better off with an arch?

And do not forget if you are hiring a hall, make sure there is enough time before the party starts to get all the décor you want set up!

Retirement Party

Retirement Blog image

Retirement – Another one of life’s milestones.

Did you know that around 10,000 people reach retirement age every single day!!

That’s a lot of parties.

Having a retirement party is a great way to celebrate leaving work life and enjoying the next part of your life.

Whether you plan on doing lots of travelling or just relaxing. It is a time to celebrate.

Here a few things to think about when planning a retirement party for yourself or for a colleague.

  • Where are you going to hold the party?
  • Are you going to have a theme?
  • What about music you will need a DJ – Think about favourite music
  • Do not forget to invite family & friends not just work colleagues.
  • And what about old colleagues, who have already left.
  • Are you going to do presentations? Are they going to be serious or funny.
  • Do not forget the food.
  • or the cake.
  • Photo booths are a big hit for any age and very on trend right now.
  • You will need decorations – do not forget the balloons!!
  • Old photos – maybe Include achievements
  • Are you going to do Speeches – who is going to do them?

What if you are not going to do a full evening party. That ok, most of these options can be done for a fun last day at work.

Whichever option you decide on, remember it is all about an enjoyable occasion. Creating new memories and remembering the old memories.

Until next time,

Classic Blue

Pantone Colour of the Year –

Classic Blue is Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2020!

The Colour Institute never disappoints and it always matches its annual choice of colour with what the world needs.

Carrying a deep meaning and symbolism, Classic Blue is a beautiful tone that comes just at the right time to convey calmness, stability, and honesty while it marks the world’s transition to a new decade. I simply love this colour.

“PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue is a reassuring presence, instilling calm, confidence, and connection,” says Laurie Pressman, Vice President at the Pantone Colour Institute.

“While technology races ahead, often overwhelming our human ability to process everything around us, it’s only natural that we gravitate toward colours that bring a sense of peace, clarity, and even protection. Suggestive of the sky at dusk, the reassuring qualities of Classic Blue highlights, our desire for a dependable and stable foundation from which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”

Creative Decorations can’t wait to incorporate this calming hue of blue into balloon creations this year. It is a solid, trusted colour that certainly brings excitement and provides a field for experimentation for me and my fellow wedding supplier friends.

I would love to know what you think of the Pantone colour of the year 2020.

Are you planning on using it?

Not sure how to add it to your wedding. Here are a few images to help you and if you need any more inspiration on adding the colour blue into your décor or accessories you can go over to my Pinterest board

Until next time,
