Having set the scene for more than 150 proposals, 400 bridesmaid requests and 1,000 baby showers – and signed over 250 NDAs – it’s safe to say the trio behind Bubblegum Balloons have been involved in some very special occasions over the years. With handmade tassels, tails, confetti and the occasional dash of glitter, even the team’s simplest balloons can be transformed into a show-stopping party piece. Its collections include garlands, confetti, ribbon backdrops and chair backs, and children’s party packs, alongside an impressive selection of balloons, which can be used alone or together to create beautiful party centre-pieces.
Best of all? All of the company’s balloons are made from high-quality natural latex which is created from the sap of rubber trees and an organic material that’s fully biodegradable. As such, the balloons can be disposed of in landfill because they take care of themselves. Inspired? Here’s what the team can do to transform your own parties.
Your wedding day is – hopefully – the one time you’ll get to throw a huge party that’s all about you. And these days, plenty of couples are injecting personality into their big day by eschewing masses of flowers for brighter pops of colour via balloons. These versatile accessories can be moved around to dress the church aisle, as props for photos and as the backdrop to the dancefloor – they’ll be the hardest-working decoration at your celebration. For something a little more dramatic, balloon installations can really bring a venue to life. From entrance arches and photo walls to window spills and climbing garlands, the team can create an inflatable design to fit in with your vision and venue. Couples can shop the range by colour to match their theme, if they have one, and can also purchase matching confetti for that all-important newlywed shot.
Hen dos are where bold balloons really come into their own. From individual balloons adorned with messages such as ‘Last fling before the ring’ and ‘From Miss to Mrs’ to themed balloon packs, they’re an affordable way to dress a hen house and use as props throughout the weekend. We like the idea of installing 3ft balloons filled with confetti outdoors, or creating a vibrant entrance installation in every shade of pink. For something simpler, there are themed packs: ‘Loved Up’ features fun inflatable L plates, diamond rings and hearts, while ‘Flamingo Coral’ offers inflatable flamingos, pineapples and lips for an overseas feel.
The Bubblegum Balloons team has lots of tricks up its sleeve when it comes to inventive baby shower installations. From traditional pink and blue colour schemes to tasteful neutral hues such as rose gold, the company’s balloons can be used to craft table runners, archways, suspended balloon ceilings and even hot air balloon sculptures. The perfect way to make an impact over an afternoon tea or family gathering.
This is where the team’s vast range of coloured balloons comes together to create the brightest celebratory installations. From door arches decorated with numbered balloons to match the child’s age to Thomas The Tank Engine and The Very Hungry Caterpillar balloon sculptures, the team can craft really eye-catching centre-pieces for kids’ parties. Parents can choose to go as subtle or unsubtle as they like: if full theming isn’t for you, opt for unicorn-shaped inflatables, balloons painted with animal spots and stripes, or pre-selected balloon packs which span pirates to princesses.
Make like the SheerLuxe team and ask Bubblegum Balloons to create a floor-to-ceiling balloon wall for your next work do – perfect for that all-important Instagram shot. Away from inflatables, the team can also provide bunting, glitter balls, tropical party packs, fun paper straws and themed table accessories. You can also opt to add real flowers and foliage to your balloon installation – ideal for setting the scene for a summer party.
Whether you’re throwing a Christmas drinks party or want to go all-out with your Christmas Day decorations, Bubblegum Balloons offers a huge selection of themed accessories for festive entertaining. We like the look of the snowflake, candy cane and Christmas jumper inflatables for a fun touch for parties, and the gold and silver cloud selection or black and gold balloon bunting for a tasteful table-side centre-piece on Christmas Day itself.
