February 14. Valentine’s Day!  For those in the balloon, floristry, gift or restaurant industry it’s a one day affair that takes a full 6 (or more!) months of planning to make sure all the best laid romantic plans go off without a hitch.

Taking the most modern style trends – including Organic Balloons, Tassels, Florals and Giant Balloons – to make our gift selection for Valentines Day 2017 our best yet (… even if we do say so ourselves). Spoil your lady with a gorgeous balloon Designer Bouquet that will take her breath away.  Surprise (and embarrass!) your man with a huge balloon arrangement that will have his whole office talking!

The past few months our Balloon Crew have been hard at work in the balloon lab channeling all the whimsy, joy, smiles and passion of romance and breathing life into gifts with our signature spectacular balloon spin.  We’ve listened to your feedback and requests for even more creativity and beauty – and yes we’ve also heard your requests for the Sublime Embarrassment Factor in your balloon gift haha.  

Whether you are in the honeymoon period of a new relationship, keeping things fresh in your 20th anniversary year, or showing your group of BFFs that they are the loves of your life, don’t forget to show your Valentine they are the bees knees.  Or as Ralph Wiggum so affectionately says “It says Choo-Choo AND It’s got a picture of a train”

Confetti Balloons

Balloons and Confetti go together like cheese and fine wine!  

We have been incorporating confetti into our designs for a decade, as a finishing touch to our Balloon-in-a-Box, in poppable balloons for Gender Reveals and Confetti Cannons that have been synonymous with New Years events.  Demand has now become so high we’re buying every colour of confetti by the truckload and using confetti designs as the focal feature of our balloon décor.

Our confetti colours!:

We use the worlds best quality Qualatex Diamond Clear balloons to showcase the lovely array of confetti colours.  These balloons are available in Giant 3ft round (90cm) or Large oval 16” (40cm) size. Customers can pick their own mix of colours to combine.  You can choose to have it loose to shake around or alternatively treated with hi-float resin to cling all over (and also a bonus which extends the float life of the balloons by 2-5 days).  Add on a spritz of Balloon Shine for even more sparkle!

Rainbow confetti with a rainbow mix of Qualatex Jewel tone (crystal) balloons. Sure to brighten up this birthday party!:

These beautiful confetti balloons bring lightness, brightness and further dimension to block colours.  As the light shines through them and catches glints of colour they provide a massive impact – perfect when decorating small or large venues. Choose tones of pink for girliness, Gold and Silver metallic for the glitz and glamour of a Gatsby themed birthday, or just include the full rainbow for something bright, fun and smile inducing.

Gold and Caribbean Blue (Aqua/turquoise) themed - 3fts with confetti and tassel, interspersed with large 16" (40cm) balloons. I love this look!:

Baby blue balloons with the big 16" clear filled with blue and silver confetti. Perfect for this amazing baby shower!:

One of the most frequent questions we get asked (aside from if we’re sucking on helium all day long haha) is how we get the confetti into the balloons. We can’t reveal all our trade secrets but can give you a glimpse into some experimenting in our Balloon Lab in this short little video.

Below you will see confetti incorporated with other very on trend adornments – in our durable Bubble balloons with custom printing for an extra special gift, with bespoke hand made tassels and wrapped in lovely light bridal tulle.  Keep track of more of our ground breaking designs on Instagram or our Pinterest page.  Or just give us a call or drop us a line via email – we’re a very friendly bunch here at Balloons.net.au!

Olympics Fever!

It’s that time again! When the best of the best in world sport will be competing, all the diehard sports nuts will go two weeks straight without sleep, and everyone else has a collective ‘a-ha’ moment while finally figuring out what exactly the decathlon is*.

That’s right – it’s less than two weeks until the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics begins!

I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly getting excited. There is no better excuse than the Olympics to go mad with colour. One of the great things about designing balloon decorations in Australia, is that we have so many cultures, every colour has a team! Green and Gold for Australia – add a little blue for Brazil, drop the green for Sweden and don’t forget the Orange if you’re barracking for the Dutch.

One of the best ways to do this is with our classic helium floor or table arrangements. With any number of latex balloons, you can really show your team spirit. Keep it simple with them all the one size, or go a little further and top the arrangement with one of our 16” latex to really make it stand out.

Or, you can go even further and show your passion for the games with an Olympic torch like the one our stylist Lindsay created for our shop window in Annandale. Combine it with letters like we did, or have it standing alone amongst your team colours.

One my favourite ideas is to go all out with our gold and silver Megaloons to spell out ‘RIO 2016’ with coloured weights.

Or why not go for a more subtle look to show your love for the Olympic Values of Friendship, Respect and Excellence and include throw up a string of pearls one of our arches in the same colours? Blue, Yellow, Black, Green and Red. Five colours chosen representing the colours of all national flags at the time of it’s creation, meant to symbolise the unity of all five inhabited continents. Or let us put together some columns for you in the same colours with an Australian flag or Kangaroo on top!

Kangaroo decoration

Know someone who lives and breathes the Olympics? Send them a bouquet to show you understand why they won’t be contactable until the Closing Ceremony is done and dusted!. Try our new Kangaroo walking pet and an Australian flag foil with some green and gold latex for a patriotic feel. Or, if it’s a Kiwi you want to impress, choose black and white to compliment an All Blacks jersey for when they inevitably win the Rugby 7’s.
