Bumblebee Balloons

Muddy says: Pssst, we’ve stolen all the balloons from the kids because we’re having them at OUR party. And we don’t want just a few either, we want them all.

No self-respecting celeb is seen without a huge glittery balloon-letter or two on her insta-feed nowadays; they’re the cool, colourful way to make a big statement, fast. And lettering is just the start. Balloons have expanded from a few spheres on strings at kids parties – to super-sized installations at weddings, anniversaries and big birthdays.

Ex-gossip columnist Hannah Jago is a whizz at adding colour and pizazz to your do, magically weaving them into giant 3-D installations, to zing the ceiling with a cloud of colour, or make a rainbow entrance around a church archway. Want wow factor for the sit-down? How about a giant shimmering orb floating mesmerically at each table-centre. Want to send your guests a message? Try metallic lettering taller than the pageboy.

Hannah’s your party go-to, able to source the exact colour to match your bridesmaids, in pastel, bold, metallics or numbers, hung with tassels, lit with fairy lights or filled with confetti. Or how about this for a cute idea, balloons within balloons for a bubble effect. And you heard it first from Muddy – Hannah’s tip for the next big thing is balloons combined with blooms for ultimate wedding lift-off.
