Miss Balloon Heart Joins Red Robin Exeter's Kid's Nights and a Booking Update.


Yes, that is correct, beginning Tuesday, May 4th, 2010, Miss Balloon Heart will be joining Red Robin, Exeter's Kid's Nights. Miss Balloon Heart will be twisting balloons table-side from 5:30PM - 7:00PM! The planning for my appearances there has been in the works for quite some time. Both Red Robin and I are THRILLED to be able to announce it "officially!"

Every Tuesday night at Red Robin is Kid's Night! Kids receive...
  • FREE tokens to play the games in the game area
  • A FREE sundae to finish off your meal
  • A visit from Red - he makes periodic appearances throughout the evening

In addition, beginning May 4th, if you join the fun between 5:30 PM and 7:00 PM, children aged *9-years-old and under will have the opportunity to have Miss Balloon Heart visit their table to create them a special balloon!

*Guests older than 9-years-old may receive balloons, if time permits.

========================================

On another note, to update everyone on my booking status. My husband's surgery recovery has been going phenomenally. We DID find out that he needs six months of chemo in order to knock out any potential microscopic cancer cells that may be in his system. Once we get a handle on his chemo treatment schedule, I will be able to accept new future bookings. It is entirely possible that I may only work a couple of weekends a month and more than likely will post on my calendar days that I WILL BE available.

I did have a few things in the works which have had to be put on hold (summer library show & deliveries). The deliveries, I had hoped to start by May, for Mother's Day but that may not become a reality for this year. My restaurant and event work may be all I have time for this summer in the grand scheme of things. Thank you all for your patience and your support!

Thank you for your patience and other ramblings

Hello, all!

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I enjoy posting updates here when I am able.

Most of you are aware that my husband was diagnosed with colon cancer last month. This week was his surgery to remove the tumor and a portion of his colon. It went extremely well and with no complications. He even arrived home a day earlier than expected from the hospital!!! Woo hoo!!! We will find out the stage of his cancer by the end of this week and that will let us know what the next stage of treatments will be. All this being said, this is why I am not currently taking bookings. I AM working events that I had booked prior to his diagnosis which is wonderful... as I have a few each month already on the books to look forward to doing.

Yes, my primary concentration right now is to be here for my husband in his recovery and of course, caring for and schooling our daughter. I know you all understand and I appreciate your patience with me during this time. I hope to know by the end of the month when I will have the time to begin taking bookings once again. I need to know I have the time to do the contracts, emails and follow-up phone calls required for bookings.

One of the events I had booked prior to his diagnosis was for this completely fun 40th Anniversary Party on Saturday. While my husband was in the hospital recovering from his surgery, I escaped to this party (yes, he WANTED me to be there). Hubby had his parents, sister and my parents watching over him during the day for me and providing me with continual updates - family is WONDERFUL!!!

I was able to take a few pics from the party.

I made the Bride and Groom Lootles for the head table.

A balloon loop to loop arch for the gift table. I fixed some balloons after taking this but never went back to take a new picture - I had to start twisting balloons! : )

This lovely lady was the very first adult to stand in line for a balloon. She was so very happy to do so and loved her "friendly" spider. Isn't she adorable? Great personality too!
I did take a few other pictures of guests with their balloon creations. Click here to view them all.

********
Easter Sunday was lovely for our family. We were able to visit my brother in New Jersey where my family all met for the afternoon. I had a little time in the morning to create this Easter Lily for my mother (an excuse to practice my fantasy flowers).


Thank you all for your support, prayers, positive thoughts and for your time in reading this blog. May you be blessed abundantly this week and I look forward to working your future events!

Please vote daily in April for Encore Theater Company!

Hello, all!

Most of you know that I am a proud supporter of Encore Theater Company, located in Douglassville, Pennsylvania. This organization is one that is for children in K-12th grade and allows them the opportunity to perform in full-scale musical productions. My daughter and many other children have been tremendously blessed by this organization and I am kindly asking you all to take a few seconds each day to go on out there and vote to help Encore win a $25,000 Grant. This will relieve some financial burdens on the member families as well as give Encore the ability to have its own space. Thanks all and have a VERY HAPPY EASTER WEEKEND!
