Balloon Drops

dropsNothing is more spectacular and effective as a classic balloon drop. We specialise in balloon drop installation large or small. We have never failed to rig a drop anywhere – no matter how low or high the ceiling area.

Our drop nets are cut to size to fit your venue and we inflate all balloons on site, rig the net and place the pull string where required. We also make sure the pull string is in a secure area away from the public.

We use a chain stitch to seal the long open side of the net. This is a tried and tested method which produces no friction when pulling. It also means the net can be dropped from anywhere on location, not just in a direct straight line view of the drop.
The nets are tube shaped rather than a flat square. We support them using 500lb nylon line and a thinner 50lb dacron for the pull cord.

On 22nd July 2015 we dropped 7000 balloons over the Liverpool One shopping mall. This involved 5 crew working overnight inflating and rigging. We inserted 3500 vouchers into the balloons which included 500 winning prizes. The marketing team at the shopping mall launched an online viral campaign and their Facebook video hit 30,000 views in the first 24 hours.

3ft Balloon Drop

If you’re looking for something different we can drop larger 3ft balloons. The principle is the same and the total weight of the installed net is no different. 3ft Latex are usually knocked back into the air so beware of broken bottles and glasses if your venue is not conference style.

Here’s some of our recent drops:

bibas

bibas

Following last years fun in Blackpool we were back again this year with a repeat order at The Bibas 2016. I took an extra crew member this time (there were 3 of us) because of the large table centres. I wanted more help at that difficult moment when the net rises and...

Here's our second shopping mall drop for Liberty Shopping Centre in Romford. This one was to celebrate Valentines day and 200 of the 1000 balloons had vouchers stuffed inside. At this venue there was no balcony available so we filled the net at ground level and chain...

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

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 the...

9 Spellbinding Years

9 Spellbinding Years

Dundee Drop

Dundee Drop

This all Gold drop was to mark the opening of a new wing at Dundee University. As we're based in The Midlands there was a fair amount of travelling involved but we like an adventure. We had to cost in 2 days travelling and hotel accommodation but the final results...

The Savoy

The Savoy

500 Balloon drop installed in The Savoy Hotel for a charity fundraising ball, the balloons were released when the charity total hit £1 million raised. The tech guys at the hotel prepared two ceiling hooks for us at 20ft apart. This sounds straight forward but when we...
