I’ve been on holiday but now I’m back

It’s been a few weeks since we last spoke but don’t worry because I’m back. I have had 2 week annual leave in on the beautiful Island of Fuerteventura, had a fantastic time but now it’s back to reality. Before heading of to sunnier climbs I had the pleasure of one again decorating the “Jude Brady Foundation” summer ball on Friday 3rd June 2011 at the De Vere Dunston Hall Hotel in Suffolk. The day starts with a golf tournament at 11am and the gala dinner at 7pm followed by the auction at 9.30pm. A great event and in total £21000 was raised for a great cause. Well done everyone.

Staying cool under pressure

 Whilst away on leave the lads back at the office were swamped with orders for print and decorating. Poor Danny clocked up over 90hrs in the first week  and things did not get much better for him in the second week either so whilst in Fuerteventura I managed to ease the stress a little and on 3 days handled all the emails and queries with the help of my Blackberry, don’t you just love modern technology. Danny even undertook a large decoration job for Capitol One in Nottingham installing over 100 bouquets of printed foils throughout the building and 6 giant arches again made from foils. Some of the arches used over 70 foils in each, Well Done Dan.

Stunning entrance decor for the Jude Brady Foundation

Room Decor. 36" foils make fantastic centrepiece


I’m now back and the orders are still flooding in. It’s that busy I have had to postpone the delivery of my new automatic balloon printing machine till next week as we just cannot afford to stop for 1 day

There’s lots more to report on but you are all going to have to wait till my next Blog.

Back soon


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.
