Mission Impossible

OK this is not as bad as it sounds but its going to be tight. 100 bouquets on 3 x 12″ latex, all with a double side print, delivery to Ricoh Arena Coventry today, 7th October at 5.30pm. It’s in the Jaguar Arena, Conference finishes at 5.30pm and they all have to be on the tables by 6.15pm. It’s a lot of walking backwards and forwards but should be fun

4.15pm, 100 bouquets loaded into the van

5.30pm At Ricoh waiting for the tables to be dropped

Mission Impossible SOLVED, Im off the the pub for a beer


About matthewlewisdisplays

We are a small balloon company based in Coventry. We specialize in balloon decoration and balloon printing. We have our own balloon printing machines & print on Qualatex latex balloons from 9" to 36" as well as 4ft & 5.5ft Chloroprenes in single colour and foils balloons from 18" , 20" and 36" in multi colour. We also have a full digital print arm to the company supplying business stationary and balloon race labels. As for me I'm self motivated, love my job and private life. Im married to Traci, have two children Joshua (Josh) and Harriet (Harribo) and two dogs, Midnight is a black Labrador and Zara is a black shaggy coated Labradoodle. My main hobby is fishing which I find very relaxing and I can be found with a rod in my hand most Sundays (Weather permitting). I also run a quiz every Monday evening in the pub I live next door to raising money for SANDS My balloon decorating career started many moons ago in 1989. I was introduced to Qualatex balloons just after that, passed my CBA in 1994 and have never looked back since. My work has taken me length and breath of England and into Europe working on large scale decor at Euro Disney in Paris and as well as Alacante in Spain and more recently appearing on the hit TV show "Idiot Abroad" staring Karl Pilkington & Warwick Davis on location in Macedonia for the 3rd and final series. My passion for balloons and balloon decoration continues to grow and I am a great believer that to be the best you need to use the best so Qualatex are my first and only balloon I use for large scale WOW factor decor. Their education and training are second to none and their vast array of products tick all the right boxes in the creative juices department.

  1. Hi Ballooning Fantastic
    Luckly the balloons did not tangle, only managed to get 95 in the van so had to put the others in the cab with me. Good think about large venues like Ricoh is I can drive right to the tables so no wind to battle with

    Hi Matthew
    Just curious to know if the balloons tangled on you when they were in the van ? I get pegs and peg them done to the weight and black bag each bouquet, takes a bit of time but saves time in the end.
