Valentine’s 2017. Beauty in design

 

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”

Here Comes the Bride…

Wedding planning instantly conjurs up a flurry of ideas – the dress, venue, flowers – but wedding decor can be taken to a whole new level with the addition of balloons.  When brides, grooms and their stylists come to us, they are firmly in two camps – either with a clear vision of balloons to complete their styling or, looking for suggestions and inspiration on current trends.  It’s hard not to get caught up in the excitement as we help to complete their vision as seamlessly as possible on such a momentous occasion.

Before my “balloon life” started in 2010, I had been to 46 (yes 46!) weddings.  In the past six years I’ve managed to bump that up to around 200 – purely as a Balloon Decorator though!  From the ultra luxe thousand guest extravaganza to the most intimate reception, from the 80s themed dance party to the luscious clifftop wedding, Balloons Online has found the perfect balloon match to every wedding theme thrown at us.

 The classic and most popular look has been our giant, white 3ft round balloons.  I have seen this utilised in so many elegant and very cute ways – for the flower girl and ring bearer to walk down the aisle with, table toppers in a grand outdoor marquee, as props for the wedding shoot, or with embellishments such as bridal tulle, flowers or ivy (or all three!).  It is an affordable and versatile way to style a wedding.

There has been a marked rise in bespoke, boutique wedding stylings in the past few years with wonderful application and pops of colour.  Rather than stick with the traditional monochromatic white look, soft pastel tones in Blush, Pink, Wintergreen, Spring Lilac, Ivory and Lemon Chiffon have been favoured.  I love the warm romantic tone they set without being overpowering. Matching the tone of balloons to the flowers or table settings is a fun challenge that brings a coordinated and stylish edge to the event.

One of my favourite styles has been the rustic, organic, earthy feel where we can team balloons with twine attached to jars filled with gorgeous rocks or to lovely garlands of ivy that have worked so well with outdoor weddings.

More whimsical weddings have even incorporated giant Megaloon letters to spell out Love or YAY or the names of the lovely couple.

Ombre has been a massive trend in fashion and hair styling – now see it in balloons! The boldest wedding look of 2016 has been incorporating deep Crimson and Burgundy at the darker end of the ombre palette before moving into Rose, Blush and Ivory.  Can’t you just picture Kendall or Kylie Jenner with this on their wedding day?  The first picture is the inspiration shot we’ve been sent many times and the second is our creation incorporating tassels and flowers.

For our most recent wedding, we created a heavenly, organic cloud structure with warm white lighting built throughout.  I’m calling it now that clouds and lighting will be the next big wedding trend!  So keep an eye out for a more detailed blog on this in the near future 🙂

These are just a few of my  favourite photos, but if you’re feeling inspired check out our Pinterest Wedding Balloons board or Instagram for the latest trends and stylings.
