This month I had the pleasure of twisting a bouquet of balloon roses for a very young client. Ayana is 3 years old and her heart and imagination have been captured by the royal visit to her hometown, Christchurch.
The bouquet was a gift for Princess Catherine who, along with her handsome prince, met the locals on a walkabout in Latimer Square.
The princess lived up to her reputation of being both beautiful and gracious, and on receiving the slightly unusual gift, said, "Are those for me? Thank you! They're very cool balloons."
Her small royal subject now loves and admires her all the more!
