A Great Place to Work!

Imagine walking into your office and seeing this on a Monday morning. You would feel pretty special. This is what happened to a group of people, two weeks ago, in Sydney's north.

Amgen is a client of mine and they have used balloons for celebrations a few times in the last 12 mobths. This time they were celebrating being awarded as one of the Best Places to Work in Australia. I think they came in 15th. The awards were conducted by Business Review Weekly, so it is serious stuff.

To mark the occasion we installed 250 balloons in their foyer (ready by 6.45am on a freeeeezing morning), so that as their staff arrived they got a big surprise.Proof that Amgen is 'officially' a great place to work.

...I wonder if they have any job vacancies...

Funky Dancing Men

No these are not three wise monkeys. They are the new "Funky Dancing Men"...not the ugly bloke in the middle, but the two handsome devils on either side.

A new edition to the brand new MAD Balloons website, you can see that they complement loose balloons on the ceiling very nicely. If you check out the website you will see a range of other uses for these studs! We also make them different sizes for the vertically challenged....

So you need never be without a partner again. Everyone can be part of a 'couple'. Be careful though. As you can see these hunks like to get friendly with the ladies... It's OK Wendy. We won't tell your boyfriend.

New Restaurant Opening....

Welcome to the new Hooters Restaurant Penrith, in Sydney's west. They had their general opening on Saturday, just past. however they called us in to do the decor for their VIP opening. You know you are a Hooters VIP when you can park your Ferrari in fron of the store....

Anyway, we created lots of garland at the entry and the balcony area of the store. This had street frontage so was able to focus the attention of all the passing traffic onto the new restaurant.

Did you know that every hooters in America has a palm tree inside (this is what I am told). We had to get some of these iconic creations in there. Floor space was at a premium so instead of creating a life sized palm tree (from balloons) we modified our feather fantasy table centres to be palm tree centres. cool huh?

As well as the VIP guests, you need your top Hooters girls on hand for the opening. Miss Hooters Australia 2011 (the very lovely Mallory) was on hand and loved MY balloon work so much that she insisted on having her photo taken with me......that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Work, work, work. My life is constant work.
