Creative Air-Filled Valentine's Day Inspiration 2021

Firstly, I would like to wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year! I hope that 2021 proves to be a successful year for you and your balloon business.  Even though for many, business is not exactly operating as usual and will not be back to pre-COVID times for sometime yet,  remember that people still love to celebrate and acknowledge important celebrations! 

So, with that in mind, it is time to start working on your Valentine's marketing, and planning the designs that you are going to sell!  Valentine's has always been one of the balloon industries biggest selling opportunities for balloon gifts and deliveries, so it is important that you are ready! What we need to remember is that Valentine's means different things to different people; maybe a person has been in a long-term relationship and the word 'love' is a familiar saying, however, there are those whose relationships are nowhere near using that word (LOVE) and they certainly don't want to send or give anything that is remotely soppy!

Over the next few weeks, I will be posting a few Valentine's posts packed with ideas and inspiration! 

I would like to start by letting you know that on Thursday the 7th of January (this week) I will be teaching a selection of air-filled Valentine's Designs - Expressions of Love as part of the Qualatex Online Education. I will be demonstrating a wide-range of designs from fun and appealing characters to trendy creative air-filled balloon gifts. All these designs will highlight your love and affection for your loved ones! Using Qualatex® The Very Best™ balloons, these air-filled creations are designed for easy delivery or pickup!

Some Hearts Just Belong Together
"Here’s a piece chock full of love!"

This is a great way to create a simple Mosaic style frame. You could use a large box lid or make a simple box frame using foam board!

Be My Love Now and Always

"An elegant gift to say I love you on any occasion."

I love this design by Cam Woody! Containers are a great way to make a beautiful balloon gift! Cam has combined the 22" Red Hearts & Filigree Bubble, with the 14" Red Kissey Lips shape and 11" Red & White SuperAgates that have been under-inflated to sit neatly into this design.
