You and Me

INSTALLATIONS ARE OUR JAM

INSTALLATIONS ARE OUR JAM

If you have been a friend of Poppies for a while now, you will know that balloon art and installations are our jam. It was the natural progression from being a party store for many, many years, that our love of colour and play would burst out into the world in this way. Did you know that last week our little team had the joy of being involved in five separate installs? Ranging from a beautiful balloon wall for a sweet 1st birthday, to a 15 metre wide streamer art piece, to a balloon garland for a luncheon. It is all joy to us.

And then did you see our HUGE balloon wall we did for our friends at EMG Events? 15 meters wide, 3 meters high and glorious! Over 5000 balloons were used, including the magnificent 165 cm balloons that are bigger that Lani! When the install was complete the client was so delighted they were a little misty eyed. We will never take for granted that we are welcomed into people’s lives to be a part of special events and celebrate their special days. And when it touches the heart of our clients and contributes to their events in a way that brings joy and beauty - well, that is just the bees knees.

UNICORN PARTY

UNICORN PARTY

I know we are not meant to have favourites, but by gosh the Unicorn range fills me with joy. I don't know if it is the sweet mix of colours with a dash of silver or that it is called Unicorn (because who doesn't love a mythical creature that is celebrated for its grace and majesty!) - but something about it is so sublime. 

We have JUST re-released our glorious Unicorn Jumbo Confetti Balloon - and she is magnificent! And did you know we have cups, plates, straws, pops, streamers, and jumbo and fringes all available in Unicorn? But even more fun, a Pin the Tail on the Unicorn and Unicorn Puppets! Party decorations and party craft sorted!

FAVOURITE PARTY

FAVOURITE PARTY

We are often asked about our favourite party that we have been involved in. And we have had the extraordinary privilege of working with some lovely and wonderful people. But our favourites are always our own children's birthday's. Always. 

We are like every other busy mum out there: slightly sleep deprived, scrambling at the last minute, late night, online, present shopping, fingers crossed it arrives in time!! But every birthday of our little one’s is a joy and a favourite. 

It is from this place that many of our products are born: keeping it real and keeping it easy. Poppies decorations are easy to install: we are all about stress free!! It doesn't have to be perfect- it just have to be something you love. Our newest products bring the joy and stress-free goodness that we love. Linking Balloons Sets and Fancy Balloon Garlands are all kinds of easy party fun.

CLOUDS AND THINGS

CLOUDS AND THINGS

I have a confession to make. I love cold weather: Autumn and Winter are my favourite seasons. I know all my fellow Aussies are shaking their heads in protest! But as soon as the calendar ticks over to December I am counting down the days till we say 'goodbye Summer' and 'hello Autumn'. I love the trees showing off their wild reds and oranges. I love cold, clear mornings followed by bright blue skies. Toasty toes in slippers and hands wrapped around mugs of tea - bliss. 

We affectionally called the balloon art below a rain cloud. It is no wonder it was my favourite. 

If you need that 'blowing in the breeze' effect in your life, we've got you covered.

EASTER CRAFT FUN

EASTER CRAFT FUN

We are so pleased to have Jacinta here! We are such fans of her Instagram account. It is full of super fun and easy crafts, that are also smart and engaging. Go check it out: you won't be disappointed! 

I am so excited to be a guest blogger for “Poppies for Grace!” Thank you for including me. My name is Jacinta and I am an Australian based Scientist and Mum of three, hoping to inspire creative kids and fun mums, families and educators. I post really easy and fun learning projects on my Instagram page @cintaandco. It’s called Cinta & Co. as my family and friends call me Cinta – short for Jacinta, and my kids are my co. – you will often see their little hands hard at work in the photos that I post. Today, I would like to share a really simple and fun Easter bunny basket that you can make at home in just a couple of minutes.

What you will need:

6 x 6 inch squares of coloured paper. We used origami squares, but any square paper will do.

Scissors

Double sided tape

White paper

Black marker pen

Mini confetti

Stick confetti

How to make the Easter bunny baskets:

1. Fold your square of paper into thirds. Open up the folds and refold the square across the opposite axis, so that your paper is divided into 9 even squares.

2. Cut along the two middle folds on each side of the paper and add some double-sided tape to the edges of the middle paper sections.

3. Attach the end sections to the tape to form your basket. Cut a strip of paper and attach it to your basket to form the handle.

4. Decorate your baskets with a cute bunny face. To make the bunny face, cut out the bunny head from white paper, glue down some mini confetti checks and use your maker pen to draw eyes and a mouth.

5. Fill your baskets with confetti (and maybe some chocolate)!

Happy Easter everyone!
