Christmas balloon centerpieces also make great gifts!
While creating centerpieces to set for a corporate Christmas party it made me think of all the times I have used this same type of piece as a Marketing item. It’s the time of year for many Winter Holiday’s and perfect season for your Balloon Business to give a gift to your Current Clients, or leave an unexpected gift for a Target Client you are wanting to make an impression on!
Based on the Holiday’s you or your target client observe choose balloons with Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays or no message at all, just a lovely design. Other times of the year I enjoy using a smile face, Thank you or other sentiment. You can create in any theme year round.
The best thing about this type of air filled foil design is it can honestly last for YEARS for people to keep you in mind when they need decor.
Start by looking in your inventory of what 9 inch foils you already have in stock, or check out your favorite distributors website for what is in stock. Then screen shot the images or take a photo of your stock so that you have it on your phone while out shopping for containers. You can purchase containers from several distributors but if you don’t find what you are looking for local stores have great selections of mugs, boxes, vases and tins during the Christmas season to select from.
If you don’t have a 9 inch foil you can substitute an 11 inch latex underinflated or create flowers out of 5 inch or a twisted design.
Make sure to have a cute card to put with the piece, you can use a Florist Pick and put a note and your business card coming out of the arrangement when making it for a marketing piece. Or use a hole punch and tie the card to arrangement with a ribbon. Plus put a sticker or business card taped to the bottom so down the road they remember who you are.
If creating the items as a centerpiece for an event having your label or card on the bottom is a great when a client gives the centerpieces away as a gift at the end of the night, people will see your information on the bottom and may contact you in the future for your services.
