It was one of the best weekends I have ever had, I worked hard, I put faces to names, I laughed, I made new friends and customers and it was all down to Qualatex for hosting the 2011 Qualatex Event at Haythrop Park Hotel, Oxfordshire England.
This event is held every 5 or 6 years at a considerable cost to Qualatex (Pioneer Balloon Company) but no matter what the cost the event is a 110% successful and strengthens the bond between the Qualatex brand and balloon professional from all over the world.
I am only a small part of this event offering a unique print service on the these Qualatex balloons, both foil and latex but I am still made to feel part of the amazing family. Every member on the Qualatex team ether staff of instructors makes this event so memorable and each adds their own personal touch.
For those of you who took part in the sculpture competition , WELL DONE. The standards and the attention to detail very high. For those of you whom I had the pleasure of meeting I hope I made you laugh and for those of you who know me know I have a wacky sense of humour and don’t I just love Champagne, either mine or someone else.
For those of you who are reading this blog and are not involved in the balloon industry and are finding it hard to understand my passion for this then the pictures below should explain everything, enjoy…..
The Saturday night fancy dress party was a huge success and I can assure all you ladies I have had strong words with Captain Jack Sparrow and can tell you he has been reprimanded. (Who does he think he is, would not catch me acting like that). The Gala Ball on the Sunday night was a black tie affair and I only think it correct to apologise now to all the guests on table 11 as I can assure you all I did not mean to knock over the bottles of red and white wine, break champagne flutes and smash coffee cups and can only think that Mr Sparrow had rubbed of on me. (He’s a bad lad)
