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.

Jewelry gift balloon

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!!

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!

Personalise your Balloons

Personalised balloons are another trend that is not going to go away.

Going back just a few years, a personalised balloon involved actually writing on to the balloon with specialised pens or glue and glitter.

But now balloon professionals like me have invested in all the right equipment, to help make the job as easy as possible. And now we use cutting machines and vinyl to personalise your balloons. Which is so much easier!!

There are lots of reasons & celebrations to personalise your balloons.

Here are my top 7:

Birthdays

Whatever age you are a personalised birthday balloon is a perfect gift.

Or you may chose to have them as part of your party decor around the room.

Retirements

Add a message to your work colleague’s retirement balloon and either put it on their work desk or take it to their leaving party.

Christenings or Communions

Add your child’s name and the special date.

Get a cute photo of them with their personalised balloons for your memories.

Weddings

The list is endless for wedding days.

Personalised messages to your other half on the morning of the day.

A special message to the bride form all the bridesmaids.

From just Mr & Mrs, to both your names and dates or the best day ever

 Add table numbers or names onto your table balloons.

Gender reveals

Personalised balloons are perfect for this, you can add your family name involve other children or have the message just bespoke to you and your other half.

Then just pop them to see what colour balloons fall out.

Company events/promotions/parties

Having an open day an in-store promotion, doing an exhibition stand or having a party – personalised balloons with your logo on always looks great.

Just because

I love doing these balloons – random message balloons – the perfect way to let someone know you are thinking about them, whatever the reason. Or to tell them something specific.

As you can see from the images, I mainly do personalise you balloons, by using bubbles, foils and large latex balloons. This is because they are longer lasting balloons and you would get even less float time with a standard sized latex balloon, having said that, I can do latex balloons as long as you only need them for the day.

I hope you enjoyed looking at all these different reasons and it has given you some thoughts on who you could give a personalised balloon to.
