Today is GCSE RESULTS DAY 2018, where thousands of teenagers go to collect the results of the last 2 years work. Whilst some will be over joyed that they have gained the results they need to go to college or 6th form, others may not have got what they want.

Sometimes the pressure these youngsters put them selves under is not so healthy, today there will be plenty of teenagers out there who do not know where to turn from here. They will think that they have failed, have let people down and have let themselves down.

We would just like to remind these students that if you did not attain the results you needed, please do not despair. TomorrowGCSE RESULTS DAY 2018 is another day, there will be further chances, further opportunities and more importantly second, third or fourth chances.

I myself did not get the results I wanted at GCSE.  Back then some of the opportunities of today did not exist. So I left school and found work.

However today there are plenty of options open to you. Speak to you school advisers and teachers. They are there to help, and will be happy to explain further options to you. Maybe you would like another chance as you feel you could do better, maybe academia is not your strong point so something more “hands on” maybe where your strengths lie.

If you did get the results you required “Well Done You”. Hope your future is bright whatever you choose to do. If you did not then your future is just as bright, you are young , adaptable and will capitalize on your new opportunities.

Whatever your results today. Remember tomorrow can be a fresh start !!

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.

What do you think ??Minion Balloon From Cardiff Balloons

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.

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.
