A SHROPSHIRE business owner whose work grew out of the pandemic-enforced lockdown says she is delighted to have moved into a pop-up shop.

Jayne Hill has opened up Lyla-Pop’s Balloon Bar in Market Street, an extension of her company Aria-June Events, named after her daughter.

Jayne, a mum to four including Aria-June, who the business is named after, is hoping to provide a space for people to come and arrange bespoke luxury parties.


She said: “I’m a mum of three amazing boys and one little girl, and a nanny to my beautiful baby grandson Loui.

“There were four generations at the launch of my little shop Lyla-Pop’s and of course my niece Lyla who the shop is named after. 

“The journey began when I started as balloon stylist in 2021 during lockdown, and named my business after my newborn baby daughter Aria-June.

“A year later in 2022 I launched my first pastel coloured bouncy castles and a beautiful white toddler bounce house, which was the first of their kind in the UK.

“Since then I have increased my collection to include white and pastel coloured soft play, a huge white ball pit with double lane slides and we even have two of the first Bubble houses to reach Shropshire.

“What sets me apart from others is that I offer the luxury styling alongside the equipment hire.

“We are a full party service.”

Jayne added that, for her, the ‘best part is that I have a strong female team behind me’ and has close to links to her mum as one of four girls.

She added: “My sisters and friends are with me on all of my set-ups and they work so hard to bring this dream to life with me. 

“I’m  working so hard to deliver the message to my daughter and niece that no matter how big their dreams are, or whatever gets in their way, they can achieve anything they want to in life if they’re prepared to work hard. 

It hasn’t been easy, I have struggled through almost losing all of it In 2022 and early 2023 during the cost of living crisis.

“I had to adapt to this and keep focused on the end result.
