A Weekend of Princeton Reunions!

At this time of year the shop gets busy with lots of orange and black themed balloon decor and floral arrangements. Princeton Reunions and Graduation creates a whirlwind of activity here at the shop from decorating Hotel lobbies like these balloon decorations below.... To University events like the Varsity Club banquet that had us decorating 85 tables plus a huge stage!  With lots of colorful designs being created as I type this blog like these centerpieces below... The weekend between May and June is always a fun, festive and hectic time in our shop but what's not to love, right? We get to help people celebrate an important milestone in their life with festive balloons and beautiful blooms.  Congratulations Princeton University Class of 2015!!  

Balloons and a Bank

This past week a brand new bank opened up in the Yardley area and we were lucky enough to be hired to decorate the branch to greet the customers during the grand opening. We've actually decorated many First Choice Bank events and they always end up looking so festive. These 2 balloon columns greeting customers at the door.  The teller windows each had a centerpiece of balloons - wow, they look so good they should have these all the time.   Such a simple and affordable way to kick off a new First Choice Branch in Yardley PA.  To see these and other balloon decorations visit our event website at www.mondaymorningballoons.com 

Before and After

What I love most about Balloon Decorations  is how visual they are for a relatively low cost. Take this event for example ~ this room at Green Acres Country Club is lovely but a bit plain. Now enter a "Global ~ Earth" themed event for the YMCA this past week, add a few well placed balloons and you have....  This! Simple, single balloon centerpieces - using a "Bubble Earth Balloon" attached onto a basic balloon weight. The smaller tables had just the balloon centerpieces while the larger tables had a 12" wide and low cylinder vase filled with glass gems, under water lights (green and blue, of course) and 5 floating candles. Imagine how magical this will look when the sun goes down and the lights really begin to show.    The extra floating candles really add a glow - I can only imagine what they looked like when they were lit!    Taking our inspiration from the invitation (which looked similar to these favors below) we went full on with the Earthly t

Balloons and the Environment

BALLOONS AND THEIR BIO-DEGRADABLE NATURE Have you ever wonder if latex balloons are good for the environment and the answer is yes! There are two types of balloons in wide general use - latex and mylar. This distinction is important because each type requires different handling. Latex balloons are easily identified by their elastic character and are composed of natural rubber sap and small amounts of non-toxic coagulants and pigments. They are 100% bio-degradable. When exposed to outdoor elements they are completely consumed by soil or water micro-organisms at a rate quicker than that experienced by an oak leaf under identical conditions. In much the same way maple syrup is harvested from the maple tree, the production of latex balloons contributes positively to the preservation of tropical rain forests.

It's All About Balloons

What's more fun that festive balloons at a party? Did you know that Monday Morning Flower and Balloon Co inflates over 40,000 balloons each year? Now that's a lot of hot air - or helium to be exact. Balloons are so much fun for all kinds of events like Bar and Bat Mitzvah, Sweet 16 parties, showers, anniversary and birthday parties. Take this Sweet 16 held at KatManDu in Trenton, NJ http://www.katmandutrenton.com/ with only three balloons in each bouquet, yet so visual. To see more of our balloon design work, visit our event website at http://www.mondaymorningballoons.com/ . We hope the next time you throw a party, you might consider decorating with balloons!

Shout it Out!

How fun are these Jumbo letters? Perfect to spell out names for sweet 16's and Mitzvahs, names of businesses or schools or even anniversary years. We sells tons of these over sized letter and at only $25 per letter, you can't ask for more "bang for your buck" than that!

Just a Few Balloon Arches to Celebrate the Season!

It's definitely balloon season!! How cool is this big balloon arch that Kevin created this morning for First Choice Bank. The perfect way to kick off a grand opening! Not many retail florists in our area can get this arch set up and ready to go by 7:45 am! We love flowers but we love balloons too! How did this client find out about our services? Apparently the American Heart Association referred us. We love referrals and our business depends on them. Just this past weekend we created 2 spiral arches (just like this one) and 3 column arches for the Heart Walk over at Mercer County Park. That set up took a team of 4 working from 5 AM to about 8 AM to finish before the walkers showed up! People often ask if we do balloons - um, hello -Monday Morning Flower and Balloon Co. Balloons are in our company name and in our blood! On Saturday AM we once again created two large spiral arches in Palmer Square for Princeton Boro's JazzFeast. I love the lime green and black combo on this one

Smiles All Around

What's a party without balloons? I especially love these smiley face mylars because they are not only happy but they are colorful. Balloon centerpieces are a great way to make festive any boring banquet room or outdoor tent. These balloons were for a big birthday party and both the adults and kids loved them! Not only are the very showy and fun but they are affordable. Switch the colors from fun to elegant and the look changes completely for events such as a 50th anniversary or a more formal gala.
