Don’t Panic Missis!

About what you might ask?

Unfortunately there is a worldwide helium shortage at the moment and decorators like me have been dealt a double whammy.

Not only have our supplies been severely restricted prices have almost doubled at the same time.

However, don’t worry if you have your event booked with the Ultimate balloon Company. I have enough helium to serve my current customers and I should be able to help future enquiries.

The price you booked your balloons at will be honoured but if you haven’t booked them yet then I’m afraid there will be a slight price increase as I haven’t increased my prices in last 4 years.

The is that as a internationally qualified balloon artist I can create some amazing wedding,party and corporate event designs using air!

The skills required to pass the demanding exams and over 18 years experience mean that your event is in safe hands. If you would like to find out more or if I can help you with your special event please call me on 01709 789333 or email me

Look out for my next post showcasing some air filled designs.

Christening Balloons

Christenings are a joyous occasion, welcoming a new baby to the family.

Ultimate Balloons are often asked to create some long lasting designs that add the extra sparkle to a special day.

In pink or blue or even lemon, christening balloons come in different styles & sizes.

The most popular design chosen for a christening is a balloon inside a balloon attached to beautiful tulle. These designs last around 2 weeks and are a show stopper.

There are also latex balloons printed with baby boy or girl or for a small extra charge we can print your babies name and birth date on if you like.

We have lots of ideas to make the day extra special and with prices from just £7.50 per arrangement why not get in touch on 01709 789333 or

Your Name in Lights

Well Almost!

How about your name spelt out in great big 4ft silver or gold letters.

They are very popular at the moment and make a great talking point at a wedding, birthday or other special event.

You can announce the new Mr & Mrs at a wedding reception even.

Here’s what we did at the Burntwood Court Hotel

I had a lovely email from the Bride thanking me for our efforts this is what she said:

Hi Jacqui,
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for the balloons at our wedding on 14 July, they were absolutely amazing.  You wouldn’t believe how many comments we received about the Mr and Mrs Copley balloons everyone loved them. 
Thanks again
