We generally tend to associate balloons with our childhood these days, some of my most memorable events growing up – birthdays, prom, christmas parties – they all had one decor item in common – balloons.
For a while now though we haven’t seen this helium filled spheres of fun as a stylish way to decorate our weddings but it seems they may just be coming back in to fashion! Several balloon suppliers are cropping up on the wedding styling boards and groups and quite a few recent events and weddings I have attended have had balloons present if not as a feature on the day, but what is so different now than back then??
Our balloon making friends are becoming more creative that’s what the difference is. Gone are the days of simple coloured balloons being attached to a paperweight and put on the centre of a table. They now come filled with petals and feathers, they have decorated garlands, they come in every colour under the sun, even the completely see through ones are something to behold and yes they really do look beautiful.
These images are from a recent shoot with Grapefruit Balloons, Rina wanted some new images for her website so I employed the help of Ellene from Stylenvy to help beautify the venue. I think I can speak for both of us when I say how surprised we were at how beautiful these balloons were and they certainly drew lots of admiring comments from all of the clients when they started arriving at the venue.
