Bubblegum Balloons is run by three friends with a shared passion for creativity and beautiful things!
We use them frequently at Corinthia Hotel London, as they are one of our preferred suppliers and they always come up tops. They often get asked when setting up balloons at weddings, parties and events: How did you end up in the balloon business? So as they approach their first birthday, they thought they should put the story out there for everyone to read. Here’s what they had to say…
On the rather crazy day we launched in April 2013 we had a range of seventeen 20-inch confetti-filled balloons with handmade tails including a get well balloon, a good luck balloon, a balloon of peace, and of course a birthday balloon. We sent each of them out to a range of press, bloggers, and wedding planners and we haven’t looked back since.
Our first year has been an amazing experience; we have been honoured to work with some incredible clients including Givenchy, Revlon, TOWIE, Hello Magazine, and L’Oreal, as well as some wonderful brides, bloggers and photographers. We’ve loved all of it – especially growing our Social Media networks, which we did organically and with a real passion and pride for what we are doing.
The balloons have taken us far further than we ever imagined they would. We have been inspired and driven by unusual and wonderful requests and we haven’t stopped growing, developing, using new techniques and adding new products. Also, on our anniversary we are launching a new product to celebrate…………watch this space!
Personally we feel our backgrounds led us to this. We have all been keen crafters and sewers for a long time – we even have a Home Economics & Textiles GCSE between us! That and a business degree, management experience, and a range of craft skills, keen eyes for design and a bit of experience in running a business has given us the skill set to drive Bubblegum Balloons forward.
Bubblegum Balloons is so much more than a business to us. We are spilling over with new ideas, so much so that we can hardly keep up with ourselves! There aren’t quite enough hours in the day…
We are also passionate about customer service and nothing makes us happier or prouder than a client who is in love with our creations.
As well as running Bubblegum Balloons the three of us are also all Mums, with a brood of five children between us. We spend a lot of time together at playdates, dinners and visits to our favourite local. We are truly the best of friends.
We create a range of stunning wedding balloons, including giant three foot balloons with handmade tassel tails and delicate clear confetti filled balloons – or even feather-filled balloons to decorate your venue and to use as table centres.
We have a great range of colours to choose from, from the more traditional wedding colours of blush, ivory and pale pink to the brights of red, purple, citrine yellow and just about everything in between. We even have a diamond clear one which we fill with confetti or feathers.
Each balloon for your wedding is handmade by us to ensure that they are bespoke, original and unique and are sure to add some real ‘WOW’ factor to your day. The impact they have in a room or marquee can be quite breath-taking. The balloons also make a great addition to photos for some really fun and unique wedding shots.
We would love to help make your wedding day be even more perfect!
With love from Corinthia London,
