Forever Training ? Always learning something new  !!

Cardiff Balloons Are Forever Training

Here at Cardiff Balloons we are forever training. We believe no matter what you know about a subject and no matter how experienced you are there is always something you can learn.

With that in mind we attend as many training courses and workshops within our industry as we can. Most of them only last the day but some do last a bit longer.

Our most recent course was to do with balloons, we picked up some fantastic new ideas and techniques, and of course will put them to good use in due course.

One of the designs we learned on the latest course was to make a monster out of balloons. Maybe great for Halloween but not so much for everyday use. With that in mind we changed the design slightly and came us with this.

In all fairness, we think he is pretty cool. This in one of the many reasons we think that you can never just let your business stand still.

You have to evolve, you have to learn what is new and what is in trend at the moment. Here at Cardiff Balloons we try to do just that.

So whatever your requirements in balloon decoration or gifts, please do not hesitate to contact us and speak to one of our fully and recently trained balloon professionals.

St Dwynwen’s Day

 Balloon News, Our Blog  Comments Off on St Dwynwen’s Day
Jan 242014

Happy St Dwynwen's DaySt Dwynwen’s Day is celebrated on the 25th January every year. St Dwynwen is the Welsh Patron Saint of love and friendship.

Whilst no where near as popular as the more famous St Valentines Day, St Dwynwen’s day is slowly becoming more popular. Now you can buy cards and gifts centered around this historic Welsh festival.

Here in Cardiff St Dwynwen’s day is barely heard off however if you were to venture to some of the more rural parts of Wales you would surely find that this day is wildly celebrated. Some towns hold very lavish celebrations holding concerts and festivals to mark the Welsh Patron Saint of Love.

The story goes that Dwynwen fell in love with Maelon Dafodrill, but unfortunately her father had already arranged that she should marry someone else. In her grief Dwynwen fled to the woods, where she begged God to make her forget Maelon. After falling asleep, Dwynwen was visited by an angel, who appeared carrying a sweet potion designed to erase all memory of Maelon and turn him into a block of ice. God then gave three wishes to Dwynwen. First she wished that Maelon be thawed, second that God meet the hopes and dreams of true lovers and third that she should never marry. All three were fulfilled, and as a mark of her thanks, Dwynwen devoted herself to God’s service for the rest of her life.

St Dwynwens Day BalloonHere at Cardiff Balloons we would like to help you celebrate St Dwynwens Day so we have decided to hand glitter write on some traditional red foil heart balloons. If you would like one of our special balloons give us a call now they are only £3.99.
