Who doesn’t love a balloon? Children’s parties, NYE, New Baby, Granny’s birthday – you can literally find one for all occasions.

We chatted to local independent business owner Kirsty from Balloon Box; a gift shop in the heart of the pretty village of Collingham – specialising in Balloons.

We’ve used Kirsty A LOT for various occasions and love her little gift shop, most recently we sought her advice for Easter. With a 2 year old that doesn’t really get the whole Easter Egg Hunt thing (apart from the chocolate!) we picked up a number of balloons and hid an egg under each one, this made it super easy to spot the treats without any reading involved!

Kirsty took over Balloon Box 2 years ago making lots of positive changes however the business is well established and has actually been in Collingham for over 30 years!

Having managed retail stores for over 10 years I decided it was time to take the plunge and do it for myself – so far it’s been the best decision I have made. I love having the freedom to be creative with new ideas, products and projects – we’re just starting to also venture into baby and children’s clothing”

There surely must be a most popular balloon no?!

We found it difficult to choose looking at the selection but Kirsty’s fave and the balloon for 2019 seems to be the year of the rainbow – which can also be personalised too! It’s an ever changing market – of course numbers, animals and orbs will always be up there as top sellers!

We are thrilled that Kirsty is offering our This Mummy Loves Tribe XXXXX
