Happy Graduations and Time to Decorate the Library!

Hello, all!

This week, I had a couple of graduation deliveries to make and took advantage of a free Saturday morning to assemble a cow themed string of pearl arch for my portfolio (see pictures below). Red Robin and Friendly's were a ton of fun as well!

Come on out and join the fun this week..

Tuesday - Red Robin, Exeter from 5:30PM - 7:00PM
Wednesday - Friendly's on Shoemaker Rd. in Pottstown 5:00PM - 7:00PM

This coming week, I will also be decorating the Boyertown Library, Children's section for the summer "water" theme. I will add sculptures to the ceiling throughout the week. : ) I am looking forward to this!

Have a wonderful weekend and week ahead everyone!

Graduation Bouquet Available - Only 2 More left!!

Hello, all!

I ordered a handful of graduation balloons to play around with and I have one particular balloon that is SUPER COOL and amazing! Placed in a bouquet with my, always favorite, Qualatex Balloon Bubbles and it creates a balloon bouquet that is jaw dropping huge and completely unique! Yes, I allowed my daughter permission to sit on the table for the picture above. : )

The design is from Qualatex as is most of the description below... the base is a Miss Balloon Heart creation.

When a graduate's future plans are up in the air, let this "Spin for Success" bouquet make the "tough" decisions for them. A giant 34" foil, star-shaped balloon presents several options like "sleep," "travel," and "get a real job" as well as a back-side that says "Fabulous Graduate." This creative balloon also features an arrow that really spins to select items! My daughter LOVES it!

Two big, clear, see-through bubble balloons spotted with caps, diplomas, and balloons are adorned with a cluster of four smaller balloons at the neck to complete the bouquet. The whole arrangement is anchored to a balloon base made to look like a graduation cap - tassel and all! You may chose which base you want (round balloons or twisted cap) and a specific twisted cap color may be requested. Time to celebrate!

The best part of all is that this bouquet will last WEEKS!!!!

Ready to Order?
I have only a few of these amazing balloons in stock and they are on a first-come, first serve basis. The complete super-sized bouquet is $95.10 which includes tax and local delivery (Douglassville, Boyertown, Pottstown, Exeter), and a balloon care card with your personal message.

Below are close-up pictures of the bouquet for reference.

A Wonderful Wild West Party

I had a BLAST working Steven's 3rd birthday party this past weekend! Not only did his family invite me to twist balloons at his party but they also asked for some super fun decor as well. Here is what I call the "balloon petting zoo" with, yes, of course, my daughter for size reference. : ) For more pictures of the decor and close-ups of these animals, click here. Have a GREAT day, everyone!

Six Month Booking Hiatus begins.

Hello, all!

I have decided to take an official hiatus on bookings during the next six months. My husband begins his six months of chemotherapy next week and in order to keep things as smooth and peaceful at home as possible I have decided to not take bookings for the entire time of his chemotherapy. I WILL take bookings for 2011 now. I may possibly be able to do events the last few weeks in December but I am going to wait a few months to see how some of his chemo rounds go before deciding on that for sure.

I WILL be working at Friendly's and Red Robin during this time, so do not hesitate to come on out and visit me there! Check my website calendar for current dates and times.

Now, all this being said, things may change, I may find that I AM able to work here and there, and if that happens you will be one of the first to know if you are reading this! So, yes, stay on my email lists and or Facebook Fan page for updates on the few remaining events I have and to see what fun stuff I'm working on and learning. I will also have balloon challenge requests periodically - there is one in the works on my Facebook Fan page.

I appreciate everyone's support TREMENDOUSLY. I look forward to being able to attend all of your events in 2011!

Abundant blessings to all of you!
