This time usually brings the chance to look back over my favourite designs of the previous year, but wow what a year 2020 was!
I want to start with a thank you to everyone who has supported Balloon Base Essex this year. Every like, comment or repost on social media, each purchase, and every time you recommend us is appreciated much more than I can say.
The blog has been quiet over the year as I have not known what to write. The stories of postponed weddings, cancelled baby showers, and uncelebrated milestone birthdays have been heartbreaking. Personally, my daughter left primary school with no celebration and no way of saying goodbye to everyone she had spent so many years with. These may not be the worst things faced by many in 2020 but can make coping day to day that bit more difficult. I hope that our balloons have helped bring some light to your special days this year, no matter how small the celebration.
Looking to the year ahead brings hope which was in short supply in 2020. I look forward to seeing you celebrate your birthdays, new babies, and special days again!
Wishing you a very happy New Year.
