You may know me previously as Createaparty UK or Cherish Wedding Services. In 2015 Cherish Wedding Services came top 5 in the Great Northern Wedding Awards but in 2016 I decided to concentrate on just one part of the business to give it my all and to perfect that area to the best of my ability.
From this and support from NABAS the balloon and party association that I'm a member of I knew I had to push the business further. I took a NABAS level 1 balloon basics course in 2011, followed shortly by level 2 but have became a member of the Qualatex Balloon Network since then and have heavily invested in my education in balloons from instructors around the world.
Yes there is such a thing as a balloon association!
In 2018 I became a committee member of NABAS the UK's biggest independent balloon and party association run by the members for the members, so that I can help and support other balloon artists giving back some of my knowledge and experience.
What did 2019 bring?
In 2019 Create and Cherish Events opened a balloon shop called the Balloon Bar, which has seen business go from strength to strength. With not only myself working in the shop but also members of the family.
2019 also saw me help organise (that's me on the right) and attend the UK's biggest balloon convention with teachers from around the world October followed by a huge enchanted forrest, which lead to garden with Santa's grotto in November 2019 with over 800,000 balloons built by 43 balloon artists again from around the world.
Why buy from the Balloon Bar??
The Balloon Bar don't just inflate balloons, we are artists and look to bring stunning displays to all events.
