Very nice Rob :)  The cardboard glasses look really realistic I even looked close up to see if they are real!  The brides dress and hair is very pretty :)  Great job :) x

I use the Silhouette cameo extensively for all our personalised balloons.  You download the software on your computer and make your designs there before sending to cut.  You can create pretty much anything you would like :) x

This is another character from Dora The Explorer. An interesting head design using 5" rounds - looks great from the front but possibly a little odd from the rear. The body design is quick and easy and can be used for lots of different characters. Some nice elements to learn from here.

I only do decor work Kenny :) Unfortunately I was blessed with the charisma and entertaining abilities of a limp cabbage lol so when I discovered balloons 4 years ago I started making balloon gifts which then just sorta somehow turned into a full time deco twisting business :) I do all the twisting for all the jobs myself :) I bought an air conditioning unit so as long as I bag them I can start prepping 3-4 days a head. I probably could prep them earlier but I tend to stick to that so I know they will be fine for the event and for the customer to enjoy for a good while after :) x

Thanks Kenny :)

all designs had some element of twisting although the tweedles were only heads and the base of the toadstool was rounds on a column. It's hard to answer the time limit bit because last weekend we did also did a huge casino themed school prom,  this party,  another simpler Spider-Man party as well as smaller order customer collections so we start prepping various parts of each order starting on the Tuesday/Wednesday depending on what will last the longest. We tend to use larger balloons where possible as we can prep them earlier in the week bag them and they will still be good for the weekend. I would say if I was to add it all up probably 1.5-2 full days to prep this lot and then the arch was prepped on site with pre twisted characters and flowers added  :) x

Think it's Thelma that does a really wicked cd trick if you want something less bulky? I have saved it to try myself at some point :) But as I do decor we just go with the cluster :) x

If you are using distortion add a couple of raisins (tie points) in between your internal inflation balloons where the ears would go and possibly one on the back so you have points other than the neck to tie into. Other than that use double sided sticky tape and stick inflated balloons to the head. I personally prefer not to use sticky tape but may be quicker and less fiddler than raisins???

Really really like this dress design Graham :)  - might pinch this picture for inspiration to upgrade my princesses. Is the bodice 350s? It is so hard to tell scale from pictures. Looking at the 160 swirls I am guessing she is fairly tall? Do you have a round balloon in the skirt with the 160 swirls? You have got my brain ticking with this one :) x
