This holiday season one party store can provide you with everything you need to make your festivities go with a bang!

Designer Balloons sells a large variety of balloons in all the colours of the rainbow, and can also provide decorating and arrangement services.

Whether it’s a children’s birthday party or your own special milestone celebrations, the Paget store has all the themed designs and products to mark the occasion.

From latex and nylon to mylar and foil, the store can create customized balloon decorations, including arches and centerpieces.

Best selection

Barbara Spence, who owns Designer Balloons with husband Anthony, said: “We specialize in balloons, so if someone wants an arch or other design, we can create this for you.

“We can provide specialist décor for a particular event, and can also create floral centerpieces.

“We can also make up decorated balloons with something inside on request, such as gumballs, for example.

“We also have all the regular birthday balloons at package prices, such as $2.99 for 12 latex, or $5.95 for a foil balloon.

“We have the best selection of balloons in Bermuda.

“Singing balloons, custom-printed balloons, balloon bouquets, and more.

“With almost every colour, shape and message, we can help you find the right balloons for any occasion.”

Designer Balloons also has all the décor, tableware and party invites for special themed events.

This could be a Batman or Spiderman-themed boys’ birthday party, or a Disney princess or fairy theme for a birthday girl.

As for grown-ups, the store’s balloon and décor specialists can also fit out your party venue along your chosen theme.

“We’ve been around as a party store for eight years now and can cater to both adults and children’s parties,” said Mrs Spence, a professional balloon decorator.

“We carry table covers, napkins, cups, plates and cutlery in various colours and themes.

“We also have party favours, candles and confetti, birthday banners and ‘danglers’, to celebrate different ages.

“We can do personalized banners and also have a cup cake line.”

The designers can also create gift baskets for special occasions, such as birthdays, Valentine’s Day,  Mother’s Day and other celebrations.

Another popular party attraction is Designer Balloons’ Teddy Bear Stuffers.

Children love the chance to create their own teddy bear and to dress him/her up in fancy shoes and outfits.

Mrs Spence said: “It’s like ‘Build-A-Bear’ and is a lot of fun.

“People can bring up the children to the store, or we go out to private parties.

“The bear stuffing machine is a popular attraction at Christmas parties.

“Corporate companies like to hire it out for their staff children’s parties. The child just comes along, chooses a teddy bear and then stuffs it.”

The bears cost $21.95, the outfits $18.95 and shoes, $12.95.

“It’s very popular among youngsters,” said Mrs Spence.

“We’ve got lots of different kinds of bears, plus cats and dogs, in various colours.


“We carry the island’s best selection of teddy bears and other furry creatures, including rabbits, koalas, unicorns and more.

“Choose the one that’s right for you and make your new friend right in our store.

“The outfits are also very pretty, ranging from skirts to jeans — whatever they want to dress them up with.

“Boys and girls alike will find the fashions, shoes and accessories to dress their new friends and take them home in style.”

No appointment is necessary to visit the store to create a teddy bear for someone special.
