I love my birthday (which falls in October) and I’m really feeling for the March and April-borns who are celebrating turning a year older in isolation.
If you still want to spoil your bestie from afar, Boujee Balloons has you covered.
If you read my last post, you would have seen my callout to readers with small businesses.
That’s when I heard from, Boujee Balloons.
A small business ran by my primary school buddy, Hong, Boujee Balloons is one of the hundreds of businesses across Sydney looking to adapt to the current climate and think outside the box.
Usually elevating events with giant arches, entryways and backdrops (like the beautiful display from my bridal shower back in November) Hong has had to scale back and is here to bring the party to you.
When I asked Hong how Covid-19 has impacted her business, she told me, “To be honest, it’s halted my balloon business altogether.”
Thanks to social distancing laws, she advised “no one can have a normal party, anymore.”
Normally working on two-three parties a week, Hong knew she had to adapt to survive, and took inspiration from the hospitality business.
“I saw so many businesses in the food industry doing contactless deliveries with meals, [so I thought] the same could be done with balloons”
So the idea of offering balloon bouquets with contactless delivery right to your doorstep was born.
Forget flowers this year, send your pal a bunch of balloons with tailored colours and styles to help them celebrate in style.
Hong informed me the best way you can support small businesses, like Boujee Balloons, is to simply keep working with them.
For more information, or to send a friend a balloon bouquet, contact Boujee Balloons and check out Hong’s amazing work here.
If you, or someone you knows, runs a small business and is trying to adapt like Hong, please hit me up! I’d love to help in anyway I can.
Happy Easter everyone!
