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,

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.
