Do you remember Ling from LingsCars? She went on Dragons Den to get investment for her car leasing business. The business itself may not ring any bells but we wouldn’t be surprised if her surprising roadside advertising did. She was offered a deal by Duncan Bannatyne and Richard Farleigh but turned them both down. Well more »

Last week we got a step closer to introducing our Personalised balloon caricatures by showcasing one of comedian Russell Kane on Twitter…. ……and then taking it down to wait for him in his dressing room at The Palace Theatre, Westcliff to see what sort of reaction it got. In a word – amazing! Russell Kane more »
Even though we are tucked up and warm, apart from our treks out to the local Sorting Office, the snow and icy conditions must be on our minds more than we thought because we created a little Penguin cutie this week. Watch out for him on the site in the New Year
Decided to make a cute little Balloon Girl with a ponytail today – here she is.
Our gorgeous little ‘Stunt Cat’ Growler had a fall at the weekend and is staying at the vet’s tonight We thought that whilst she was poorly we would ask for some virtual hugs for her in return for a 10% cashback on our Kitty Kat balloon at www.balloonbaboon.co.uk.

I love Valentine’s Day to bits and always have. When I was at University my room looked out over the entrance to the campus reception and I would spend as much time as possible sitting on the windowsill on 14th Feb watching all the bouquets of roses arriving. It was bliss. The person who came more »

They haven’t banned deliveries of balloon flowers though which gives us the perfect excuse to add more varieties to our collection. It has nothing to do with the fact that more »
