Eid

4.30am – 20 Arches Complete. This years EID celebration required 20 balloon arches to decorate Small Heath Park in Birmingham. I worked on this event in 2014 but this years task required more planning because of the quantity of balloons and last minute access....

Roundhouse

Roundhouse 10th Birthday Celebrations image © John Williams Before installing the Google drop last December I worked closely with The Roundhouse in Camden to match their strict safety standards. They must have been please as they called me back to help celebrate their...

MBNA

MBNA Clipper ran a one day promotion to launch their contactless card readers. Clipper is a taxi service that runs up and down the Thames, transporting busy commuters and tourists with spectacular views of the London skyline. I was asked to fill their 6 waiting rooms...

43 Arches

This sounds like a challenge, build 43 arches across the UK in 1 day. It seemed daunting when faced with a spreadsheet listing addresses and postcodes. Looking at a list it’s difficult to digest how close each location is, so I posted them onto a Google map...

HMV

For a 6 week promotion in 2 HMV stores Disney required 2 arches to be placed over their “Buy One Get One Free” retail displays. As the duration of 6 weeks was a long time for latex balloons we replaced them at 2 week intervals. The 2 stores were based in...

Liberty

NYE 2015

For the last 3 years I’ve been decorating a large restaurant in Mayfair early AM before it opens. The venue is made up of several smaller restaurants each serving different styles of food. Previously they’ve ordered 5 large drops and it’s been a tight turnaround to...

Google Party

This balloon drop at The Roundhouse in Camden was a little different because Google wanted big balloons. When we drop smaller 11″ they get jumped on and burst but when BIGGER balloons fall everybody wants to bop them back up into the air and punch them around...

Selco

We’ve been installing arches for Selco at various of their store openings. These are a 1 day promotion so we put the arch in at 6am and return at 6pm to take it down. This included 2 arches in Southampton & Weybridge on the 30th November when storm Clodagh...

Red Bull

For this ceiling fill I was given the dimensions of the required space: 5 Metres x 15 meters = 16ft x 50ft = 800 Square Feet If a 12” balloon is 1 square foot we needed 800 to fill the space, so I suggested 1000 to allow for slight overlap. Once this was confirmed I...
