We design and create balloon displays and personalised balloons for any kind of occasion. We supply balloons of every description, personalised, children’s themes and so much more. We offer all party ware, table covers, banners, badges, candles … the list is endless.
Customers can buy by coming into the shop or by visiting the website. They will find a huge variety of items and options, as well as having the option for bespoke items.
We give a personal touch to make every one of our customer’s parties, weddings, or events unique to them as well working for corporate organisations and outside events.
We are a party shop with a difference and if our customers have a vision for their party or wedding, we will bring it to life!
The business was started in 2013 and moved to Bishops Tortford in 2018 where it has grown from strength to strength. Following the global pandemic, people are taking celebrations to the next level!
