‘Cardelium’ was founded in 2012 by mum of 2, Anthea Orchard.
The business operated from the family home in the early days. But the popularity of the business meant that Cardelium was able to expand into it’s first ever shop back in September 2014.
By early 2018, it was apparent that the shop wasn’t big enough for the business that it had become. As such, we moved premises into a bigger, brighter and cleaner unit, just down the road from our old shop.
Based on the outskirts of Halifax, the shop is home to one of the largest selections of balloons in the area. It also has a large selection of greeting cards, gift wrap and party goods, as well as the odd gift for that special person.
Anthea believes that professionalism is everything. Cardelium is a member of BAPIA, The Balloon and Party Industry Alliance, and as such also has full public liability insurance (copy certificate available on request).
Back in November 2016, Anthea qualified as a Certified Balloon Artist (CBA), the most respected and comprehensive certification in the balloon industry. The CBA designation recognises dedicated individuals who have achieved the highest levels of skill and demonstrated their ability in balloon gifts, bouquets and decorating.
From the outset we made a very big decision that makes a very bold statement about Cardelium and the balloons that we sell to you; We decided that under no circumstances would we ever sell a standard latex balloon. As such, we pre treat ALL our latex balloons with a substance that extends their floating time beyond the standard 8-12 hours, AND we don’t charge any extra for it. We cannot guarantee how long they will last, but it has been known in some environments for them to float for a few weeks!
We work closely with our suppliers to make sure you are spoilt for choice each and every time you visit the shop. In the unlikely event that you do not see what you’re looking for, please do ask; We will work with you to find exactly what you want, whether it be balloons, party goods, or both!
