Bespoke Elephant, for a very special Birthday, its all about Delivering the best for your customers

When the call came through for an Elephant for a Birthday Party I was surprised, not many people are willing to go so big, it turns out this party was more that meets the eye, all the family had come in to Melbourne from all corners of the globe, this was a very loved and wanted  Grand and Great Grand Child.

 

Something Amazing happened, To Further make this Bespoke, all the family started signing the elephant, I had white pens and they were writing so many missives of love for that little guy it really was a super special event, all circus theme with balloon twisting, and even a carousel this family knows how to party.

At the end of the party we took high quality pictures of the elephant with all the letters of love on it.

I loved making this piece because I know that this Elephant will be in the the family album for the rest of the little fella’s life, so many photos in front of the Elephant for all the family,

It was a Joy to be a part of this day

Hot air ballooning 😆

There is a lot in the air at the moment about Gift Balloons and hot air balloons

These gift delivery balloons I am making at the moment are going crazy

they are extremely bespoke, down to what colour you want the clouds, red/white or bubbly, if you want chocolates with them

I have been asked about doing different styles, EG halloween, what do you think? would anyone be interested in a hot air eyeball or witch?

also, what would I put in the basket? gummy worms and things like that?

Let me know what you think would someone would like to get

Cheers

3ft (90cm) Balloons as Decorations

Hi there, i’ve been wondering what balloon has the most impact on an event and is also the most versatile, after much discussion with peers I think the 3ft (90cm balloons) are arguably the most versatile balloon, These have been a big winner for everyone, they create amazing atmosphere and we can make them into anything.

They come In every colour, we can create custom colours with double stuffing,  plus clear and even marble swirls,

In the hands of a Professional, 3ft Balloons  can be anything you can imagine, from the belly of an enormous Easter Bunny to the topper for a huge column, you can fill clear ones with confetti or smaller balloons to explode for a gender reveal or even a mini balloon drop (see the just married picture).

3ft balloons can make an enormous flower centre,  they are big enough to write anything you want on them in Vinyl so you can have them  personalised,  and, Elegant enough for any occasion from a Wedding or Christening to Corporate promotions and even a make an outstanding and inspiring gift delivery to someone’s door (or make everyone else envious when it arrives at their desk at work)

Massive balloon decorations

Some days you just love what you do so much.

Being a Balloon artist I am part of a quite small but skilled community, I love that we pull together for events like this, a couple of fellow balloonatics got married so we all converged on Noosa Leisure Center and built an Enchanted Balloon Forest, it was so much fun

I ran lead on the wedding cake, it was Fabulous

5meters (14ft) tall it took two artists and 6 or more helpers two days to create

Stay tuned for more amazing photographs from #ozballoonwedding @noosaleisurecentre

Because Miss Donna and Mr Jay got married

Unicorn party – games and set up

There are just so many ways to theme up a party, and play around with what you can do

Depending on their ages, there are so many things that could work for this style of party

I recently did an 8yo Unicorn party, it was Fabulous, here are some of  the games we played

The most important thing is to engage their imagination, and for this, you don’t really need much, just a dash of silliness and some coloured material

First step is, decide with the kids (I have had them tell me it’s a fart/tinkle noise)  what noise a unicorn makes and that is the sound to start and finish games

Have pockets of glitter and make the unicorn sound and throw glitter in the air

  1. tell a story together, this is done with a lot of engagement from the children, we tell a story of a little unicorn (children name and age the unicorn) you start the adventure with this unicorn sleeping and have the children be asleep.  then make up a story with the kids input (remember the input because you retell it backwards as the unicorn goes out for an adventure then finds it’s way back home.  The children absolutely love this game, because it engages them in all forms, they get to create a character and take it on an adventure that is all their own

2. Team games, make two hobby horse unicorns out of balloons and have the two teams race once around the table/chair/clothesline and then hand the hobby horse (they mush ride it like its a horse)  over to the next one in line, the team done first starts neighing loudly

3. balancing games with a parachute – kids in the centre are wearing the unicorn horn (balloon horn perhaps) and then you can wash them in the huge unicorn  washing machine (everyone runs around the circle with the edge of the parachute, it twists up and the unicorn in the centre needs to keep their balance

more parachute games here

Running games – blow up a balloon if they can (most cant) assist with your balloon pump and tie off  then they have races frontways backways sideways all together around the yard

2 teams

Jelly bean / Marshmallow run – spoon in mouth,(everyone has their own spoon) picking it up from one bowl and putting it in another

Unicorn tails (snakes or rainbow straps) pegged on a string and have an eating competition

Make unicorn Gel – clear aloe vera Gel plus a drop of glycerine plus loads of super fine glitter can be used for skin or cheeks or lips (always avoid eyes) This is an excellent one for older kids, get them to decorate the pots you put it all in after they have made their magical glitter Gel

Make glitter slime, I have been making slime for years with kids, however there is now an issue with borax so we don’t use it any more, here is a slime recipe that I have been using and adding glitter too so it’s all squishy and lovely

  • 1.5 cups  of white glue
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Baking Soda
  • 2 tablespoons of  saline solution (make it yourself with water and salt)

Mix it, add some shaving foam to make it fluffy, then add food colouring and glitter, loads of glitter, it’s a gooey slimey mess

Aaany way, I had heaps of fun at the party, so did my little friends, happy Unicorning

 

Peace and love

Mel

Arches and decorations setting the scene for your event 

When you plan an event what feeling are you getting across? Is it a convention or a birthday party or product launch? When you decide the atmosphere you want the guests/delegates to feel, balloons set the scene and are gorgeous so you can get your attendees to hashtag #yourevent, set selfie prizes on Instagram and across all your social media, balloons and our outstanding high impact decor share well, look amazing and will keep people talking

Choosing the pieces you want for your event is all about the venue, sometimes less is more, an entry arch  or two columns as the guests are coming in set the scene, perhaps lights or multiple floor decorations giving a “red carpet” feel,  table centerpieces and another gorgeous backdrop for photos, or even, a photoframe are quite on trend now

Retail decorations 

Sometimes it’s to celebrate a season or a sports team, sometimes it’s for fun, sometimes it’s to highlight an area of the store, but every now and then, a little fancy, a little changeing it up with some colour makes the world of difference to the way the staff feel and therefore the customers feel too, a breath of fresh air in the form of  colour and movement

Nothing says winter in Australia like Citrus and we are all a flutter with the yummyness 

I was asked yesterday to install something cool for Citrus and this is a nice little display I’m kinda proud of, it’s a little odd but I like that 😊 the 3ft balloon that’s an orange makes me very happy
