Mothers day Well Valentines Day has only just passed but already we are thinking of the next occasion, Mothers Day.

We should always show our mothers every day how much they mean to us and how much we love them. Unfortunately life can sometimes get in the way. So Mothers Day can be that push we need sometimes to make sure we make that extra special effort to show our Mothers our appreciation.

What better way to show our Mothers how special they are than with a fantastic Mothers Day balloon gift. Balloons can have the ability to last longer than flowers and are even better for those that are allergic to flowers!

Just like Valentines Day we will be having a special off £9.99 balloon bouquet including 2 foils and 2 latex balloons all mothers dayin a fantastic Mothers Day theme.

We have come amazing balloon gifts starting at just £2.99 for a foil balloon up to some much grander balloon bouquets. We can also make bunches of balloon flower bouquets so the people who cannot have flowers do not feel left out. We can even make our famous bubble man (or woman in this case) in a Mothers day theme. We have balloon gifts to suit every budget including if there are some little ones who would like to spend a little of their pocket money on.

mothers day Please have a look at some of the designs we have provided and pop into our branch in Canton to see some of the new up and coming designs that will be making an appearance.

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.

The website is still taking shape at the moment so please bear with us but it should be fully up and running within the next couple of weeks. There are still pages that you can view to get an idea of the types of decorations that are available to you for your big day so please still have a little look. You will then be able to see the website develop to its completion over the next few weeks.

Keep your eye peeled for new wedding venues that we will be adding to the websites. This website is already Cake Archcompleted for your viewing pleasure so if you are finding it hard to navigate around our new page as it is still under construction there is also a wedding section on here that you can look through.
