Happy New Year 2021 everyone hopefully this year will be better for everyone than last year? Covid will be under control and we can get back to some form of normal life again. We still need to be careful and look after others at the moment in these trying times.
This year for us after a serious accident in 2019 we have had a huge learning curve and the business has adapted to help our customers. There is nothing better than flowers to cheer someone up and be a final tribute to represent someones life. The balloons which we can personalize also help to make a birthday really special in these difficult times. Weddings we feel for all the couples that have had to cancel their special time so many times, hopefully this year will be better.
Ballooning Buds and Bows has also grown from starting on a kitchen table, garage, and studio. We have finally found a shop that suits are needs as we have outgrown the house. It is perfect having a consultation room, stock room, parking outside and we are now able to support other local suppliers creating a little gift shop. This enables customers to buy a present, card and wrapping in one place and park outside. (One stop shop) We now stock all sorts of goodies from candles, soaps, jewellery, honey, jam and chutney, recycled goods, fused glass. It is nice being able to support local craft suppliers. We have some wonderful crafters working with us.
We are also working towards being environment friendly the vases we use are recycled and come in stunning colours. Wrapping paper is kraft, our latex balloons are biodegradable, we are making changes all the time so we can help support our planet.
Sorry, for such a long blog but just felt it was important and if we can help with flowers,balloons or gifts to help make someone’s day we would be happy to help. Nothing better than seeing someone smile.
