Happy Birthday to us, Happy Birthday to us…

For he’s a jolly good fellow, for he’s a jolly good fellow…

Well, in case you hadn’t already noticed from the singing, the big sale on the website, numerous blog posts or the constant Facebook and Twitter updates – RedBalloon is turning ten this week!!

In the style of any ten year old, we even had a party (or two…)! On Friday night we took over Sydney Tower for our French-themed birthday party with all the trimmings. You see, the name RedBalloon was inspired by a 1956 French film of the same name, in which a boy is followed around Paris by his crimson inflatible friend and together they go on a number of adventures. There were berets, stripes and neck scarves galore, red balloons adorning the walls, a DJ mixing French-inspired tunes, a photo booth complete with wacky props (see the evidence below), and a birthday cake, err croquembouche, made by one of our suppliers - Mr Adriano Zumbo! Oh, and did I mention the all-you-can-eat lolly bar? It was, by all accounts, a pretty shabby affair…

For the rest of the week, we’ll be gorging ourselves on sweets and enjoying a whole host of fun and frivolous activities! All RedBallooners get the chance to take time out during the day to enjoy one of many memorable experiences, including running away to join the circus for the day, harnessing their inner Captain Jack Sparrow with a jaunt sailing the high seas of Sydney Harbour, displaying  their pre-school finger painting prowess or for the bravest of the brave,  flinging themselves out of a plane!

Stay tuned for updates of our birthday week exploits.

…and so say all of us.
