New Balloon Decorations Video For Parties and Events – Before and After

Posted by Michael on November 10, 2010

We set up this banquet party room with balloon decorations a week ago Saturday.  It is amazing how balloons can instantly transform a room’s decor into an event.  We hope you enjoy the transformation as much as we enjoy making it happen.

Decorate Your Party Or Event With Large Letter Balloons

Posted by Michael on October 24, 2010

We set up these balloon decorations for Daniella’s party celebration for her Bat Mitzvah a few weeks ago in Lake Zurich. One part of the party decorations had her name spelled out in large letter balloons.

Notice what a dramatically change the party balloon decorations made to the room. Guests’ focus of attention was literally on her name as they entered the banquet room and all throughout the evening’s festivities.

A Brief Video Showing a Two Name Letter Balloon Arch

Posted by Michael on December 20, 2009

We uploaded this YouTube video. I think it shows the impact a beautiful arch can make to a party or event as a focal point. It was our first double name balloon arch in letter balloons.

I really didn’t know how it would work out or whether it would look good. The ceiling in the party room was exceptionally high. We inflated the balloons and assembly the arch in the kitchen hallway. I admit I had some trepidation when the fishing line got tangled going through the doorway. But Mikey sure made it work!

Da Chicago Bears Football Theme Bar Mitzvah Party Buffalo Grove

Posted by Michael on October 6, 2009

This past weekend we had the privilege of setting up the centerpiece and balloon decorations for Daniel’s Bar Mitzvah party in Buffalo Grove, IL.  The theme was da Chicago Bears’ football!   The party participants were greeted at the place card table with this “name” centerpiece.

Two different sized Chicago Bears football themed centerpieces decorated the tables, along with matching balloons.  There were one level centerpieces with a picture of one of Daniel’s favorite players.

Posted by Michael on July 26, 2009

Our newest YouTube video shows how we use acrylic paint to decorate and highlight a hockey player sports cut out.  After painting, glitter paint is added  to make the details “sparkle.”  The hockey player cut out can be put onto one of our budget “Just Add Sand” centerpiece bases.  Use two pieces of onion grass to highlight.

Add balloons and table name cards with coordinated place cards to make an economical budget Hockey theme for your Bat Mitzvah, Bar Mitzvah, wedding, special event or party!

So You Do Not Need a Day of Event Coordinator? or Horror Story #1

Posted by Michael on December 5, 2008

We still remember all too well one day in Northbrook, Illinois. We were setting up centerpieces and balloons for a party in one room when a frantic hotel hostess came in to talk with us. The centerpiece company failed to show up for the party in the next room.

What could we do to help out the situation?

It was sheer luck we had balloons, ribbon (matching the color theme) and enough helium left in our tank to fill the balloons. We used balloons filled with water as weights, tied some colored napkins with ribbon around the water balloons, inflated and tied down the balloons, and the party went on! The appreciative parents came back to use us for their next event. And we got a second party after that!
