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.

busy with balloonsCardiff balloons have been very busy with balloons over the past few weeks and that is just how we like it. The adrenaline that we feel when we have a lot of orders on is amazing as each job is just as important as the last. We take great care and attention to make sure each design we do is just how it should be.

We completed a range of weddings and birthdays and christenings over the past weekend so busy with balloonsno two jobs were the same. As well as the balloons we also provided a sweet cart hire for one of our customers at their wedding party.

Both Saturday and Sunday were busy this weekend and without a strong team the work we busy with balloonscompleted would not have been possible.

Saturday was busy with both balloon orders and customers coming into the shop to order items, with a wedding and sweet cart to complete, and birthday balloons to deliver we were on the go all day which is great. Sunday was a little different as we are not normally open so it was mainly just balloon deliveries to be completed, our first was a delivery to Sainsburys in Newport for 9am, so an early start on Sunday for us although we do not mind as long as the customer has gotten the service they busy with balloonswant.

We appreciate all the support and custom from our regular customers and from our new ones who help keep us running on a day to day basis. Without you there would be no Cardiff Balloons so we sincerely thank you and hope you keep us just as busy over the coming weeks.

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.
