FLOWERS NEVER LAST BUT THE IMPRESSION DOES

What’s Poppin’ With Balloon Bouquets?

Balloons – a concept that was first introduced back in 1824 by professor Michael Faraday, utilised them in his experiments. From then on, balloons have come a long way, no longer confined to the walls of experimental use. It is commonly referred to as the ‘go-to decoration’ for a range of celebratory events. However, as one would know, people nowadays long for more than just plain ol’ balloons. Thus, new concepts have come to life. Tied together with the increase in flower delivery, this is where the highly popular balloon bouquet comes into place.

In a survey conducted on a social media poll, 16 respondents aged 18 to 38 were asked if they would be interested in buying or receiving a balloon bouquet on special occasions. 11 out of the 16 (68.8%) were in favour of giving or receiving one, citing reasons such as the aesthetic appeal, customisability and relevance of the bouquets to graduations and weddings. As one of the respondents mentioned,

“It is a straightforward gift that looks presentable and comes with a soft toy to keep as memorabilia, I don’t see why not.”

In the upcoming paragraphs, we will dive right into the reasons for the recent hype and surge in popularity of the balloon bouquet.

The importance of graduation in Singapore

In Singapore, it is without a doubt that there is a strong emphasis on our education. Naturally, there is a lot of importance placed on graduation, which is a significant marker of the end of a student’s life. Graduation from institutions like a university signals the transition from a young, budding student into a mature adult, ready to take on heavier responsibilities such as earning a living.

To celebrate an event that holds so much meaning, it might be hard to find an appropriate gift. Not too informal like a store-bought card, and not too formal or extravagant – scouring for a middleground is no easy feat. This is why many people have opted for a graduation balloon bouquet, among all gifts.

Another selling point is the symbolism of the flowers in the balloon bouquet. In the particular bouquet above, the sunflower signifies unwavering faith, while the red daisy symbolises new beginnings and hope, which is especially relevant in a graduation event. As someone who looks for meaningful gifts, this is surely not one to be missed, as the balloon bouquet conveys a congratulatory message perfectly.

There is a variety of options to choose from, with very competitively prices to cater for difference budgets, so that you can choose the one most suited to your needs.

Trending Around The World

Worldwide trends seem to change faster as time progresses. With that being said, one trend that has managed to remain relevant across the globe since the 1960s is minimalism. The simplistic design of balloon bouquets is well-liked globally, receiving the universal stamp of approval. A crystal clear balloon with a red rose and baby’s-breaths encapsulated within it is shockingly uncomplicated, and is all it takes to sweep your partner off their feet.

In the aforementioned survey, respondents brought up the fact that balloon bouquets are appropriate for an array of events, be it a wedding or a significant other’s birthday. Birthday balloon bouquet exudes a vibe of playfulness and exuberance, one that is unmatched with its more formal counterparts such as a rose bouquet.

One respondent brought up that the bouquet can be taken apart and be used for decor purposes, which is another way to utilise the bouquet after receiving it.

A few other respondents think that the pastel colours of the bouquet were attractive to them. It is worth mentioning that the pastel palette gained popularity in recent years. This is due to the fact that more and more people agree that highly saturated colours tend to strip away the natural beauty of raw colours. Thus, the sudden increase in popularity of pastel colours is a large contributor to the trend of balloon bouquets.

On the flip side, as contradictory as it sounds, the balloon bouquet strays away from the mainstream bouquets of flowers. Being new and unconventional, these balloon bouquets have definitely garnered a lot of attention due to it being a concept people have never seen before. With a balanced combination of formal looking flowers and light-hearted balloons, it is no wonder people are attracted to the bouquet’s duality.

Tailored To Your Every Need

In a regular bouquet of flowers, apart from the colours and types of flowers, there is a limit to how you can personalized your message. Although it is an option to include a card in the bouquet, not a lot can compare to seeing your name plastered across a balloon, which makes the bouquet undeniably yours.

Customisable gifts are extremely important for events such as weddings due to the importance placed on the two people getting married, thus the flexibility of the balloon bouquet is something people would look out for during wedding planning, and is sure to attract a large audience. As for anniversaries and birthdays, the uniqueness of a bouquet like the one above will without a doubt leave a pleasant lasting memory. It isn’t everyday that one gets to see a bouquet like that.

The popularity of the balloon bouquet is definitely justified with a multitude of reasons. From its unique concept and look to the symbolism of the flowers that accompany the balloons, it is hard to argue against the hype that it has gotten. Although it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, it is important to realise that not everyone has the same likes and preferences, despite there being a large crowd of people who see the beauty of the bouquet and are willing to spend their money on it.
