Jacqui's Journey

When the phone rings at 10 O’Clock at night…it’s rarely a good thing. But this call, 28 years ago, REALLY changed my life for the better.

“Jacqui! I’ve had a great idea!”.

She practically yelled down the phone at me. This was my friend, in a rather excited state! When she’d calmed down, she went on to tell me about the amazing balloon decor she’d seen at an event she was attending. 

Knowing me as well as she did, she pointed out that this might just be the perfect career change I was looking for,  which after 15 years, I was beginning to feel that I’d taken my corporate career as far as I could and I craved a new challenge).

To start with I was sceptical. But, intrigued by her enthusiasm, I started to investigate the industry. Soon I found that far from just making balloon animals for children’s parties, a career in balloon decor could really be the change I was looking for. 

I could satisfy my creative side, where my eye for detail would also be really useful and my need to really make people happy would have an outlet too. So I sought out the best balloon artist in the country and went along to learn everything I could.  Shortly, “The Ultimate Balloon Company” was born and I got my very first customers.

Eventually I became a fully qualified balloon artist and the business started to take off (no pun intended!) the rest, as they say, is history.  History that has seen me working with the likes of Coca Cola, Tina Turner and even the Royal family!

Whether it’s a wedding, a party or a corporate event, I never leave a room until it’s as good as I can possibly make it.  Because when you’re organising an event like that, and you need it to be an unrivalled success, you want people around you that take it as seriously as you do

So drop me an email or give me a call to find out how Yorkshire’s premier balloon artist can help make your next celebration a day you and your guests will never forget.
