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.

  • 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.
