Rainbow Balloon Decorations

#HugsForNoah Gala Dinner

At the The Memory Knot Company, we wanted to help support a brave little man, Noah Wall, who was born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. His family and friends campaign tirelessly to raise awareness of his condition so we wanted to help them too! Armathwaite Hall Country House Hotel and Spa held a Gala Dinner for #HugsForNoah to raise money for Noah's ongoing care! We were pleased to buy tickets and offer our services to help an amazing little boy and his family.

 

Hugs For Noah Gala Dinner at Armathwaite Hall on May 24th 2013

In the run up to the Gala Dinner, singer Beverley Knight kindly recorded a video on YouTube to help promote #HugsForNoah and encourage people to buy tickets.

We offered to make and donate rainbow balloon decorations for the function room

Getting prepared... all the materials laid out before all the hard work began to create a rainbow themed balloon arch to fit in with the #HugsForNoah logo

 After a lot of inflating we had a pile of balloons to work our magic with

Almost there... our rainbow spiral balloon columns are starting to take shape

We designed the rainbow balloon columns to spiral opposite to each other

Now for a star on top of the balloon columns to represent the little star that Noah is!

Time to attach the 'NOAH' helium filled letters to the columns to make the balloon arch

Our rainbow themed balloon arch was a great spot for all the guests at #HugsForNoah gala dinner to pose beneath for photos. Here's a great photo of Noah and Them Beatles!

 

 

Everyone at this charity event had a wonderful time and the photobooth kindly provided by BoothPix helped guests to capture special memories.

The photobooth proved more than just a booth that takes photos, it’s great entertainment too!

Guests had such fun choosing items from the dress-up box before jumping into the photobooth... constant giggling to be heard from behind the curtain.

Boothpix put a copy of each hilarious photo strip and a message from each guest into an album to capture the fun for Noah to treasure... what a lovely idea!

Armathwaite Hall Country House Hotel provided a lovely meal, we especially enjoyed this yummy cheesecake along with some of the lovely #HugsForNoah themed cake donated by Judi Bakes

UltimateBabyShower_HugsForNoah

We loved the fabulous mini cracker saucer decorations donated by Ally at The Ultimate Baby Shower and the cookies made by Clare's Cake Creations as favours.

 

Inside the #HugsForNoah brochures on the tables, Shelly thanked everyone that had kindly donated

HugsForNoah_hashtag__auction

So many people got involved, donating items for the raffle and Noah's mum organised a brilliant hashtag auction on Ebay... the first hashtag auction of its kind!

HugsForNoah_TheDinkyButton

Each guest who attended the event received many goody bags, including tie pins for the gents and beautiful bracelets with the #HugsForNoah logo made by The Dinky Button. Jaimie modelled hers the morning after the event, when we took a well earned break to play crazy golf... it was a tie!

Here we are with a very sleepy Noah and his wonderful mum and dad, Shelly and Rob

Noah's mum, friends and family along with The Go Folic Charity campaign tirelessly to raise awareness about the importance of taking folic acid before and during pregnancy to prevent spina bifida and other neural tubular defects.
