Laura Trott?

This Sunday saw the Skyride come to Birmingham. 18,000 cyclists took to the streets on a circuit of roads closed especially for the occasion. This gave us slight problems with a delivery to The Botanical Gardens for a 50th Anniversary party, but that was a small price to pay as we were also commissioned to provide some balloon decor for the start area at the University. And yes, that’s Olympic gold-medallist Laura signing hi-viz bibs at the event!

Air-filled decor

One of our jobs this weekend was to provide balloon décor at a wedding at The Granary, Shenstone. It’s the first time we have visited this venue, and what a fine venue it is, too.

The décor we provided was unusual in that it was all AIR-FILLED, which, in these times of worldwide helium shortages, is great to achieve. We supplied a balloon Bride and Groom, an Exploder which hung from the ceiling, and a Champagne Bottle Arch.

There are definite problems with helium supply, but we would like to stress to all our booked-in customers that we have sufficient for our needs. It may well be more problematic in the future, but we are a creative team and we know we can design viable alternatives. Indeed, the décor shown on the ‘Highbury’ venue page of our website is all air-filled, as helium-filled décor is not allowed there.

The world of balloon venue décor is undoubtedly changing, but we’re well equipped to adapt and we see ourselves as ‘staying ahead of the game’ thanks to our design capabilities.
