I have balloons for every occasion. I specialize in entertainment and balloon decor. Balloon Shows are what set me apart from other local entertainers. I have performed Shows hundreds of times in restaurants, backyards, parks, homes, banquet halls, festivals, carnivals, schools, corporate events, nightclubs, bars, arcades, ice cream shops, and shopping malls. I'm mostly hired for children's shows, but often the adults are the most entertained. Shows can be very formal or informal. I've done formal shows that were as short as 15 minutes and as long as 75 minutes. If your party has already seen a 20 minute show, I have more than enough gimmicks, gags and gaffaws to fill another completely different show.
I am a Certified Balloon Artist, CBA. This certification is given by the largest balloon company in the world, Pioneer. To be a CBA means that I passed a series of tests about balloon decor knowledge and skill. The last and most difficult tests were 'hands on' in front of other Pioneer CBA's. In addition to the knowledge, skills and confidence, as a CBA, I also now have access to all of the networks and resources that Pioneer has to offer.
The majority of what I do at events is to take requests. I enjoy making every interaction special and personalized. I use the highest quality and most vibrantly colored balloons by Pioneer and Betalic. I always arrive with over 40 colors, 7+ sizes and 5+ shapes. To inflate balloons, I'm currently using the newest, most reliable, battery-operated pump, The Lagenda 321. For tricks and gimmicks I can mouth inflate modeling balloons. Most people cannot do 1, I can inflate 2 or 3 at once.
At private parties, I use a ticket system that does not require guests to stand in long lines. I generally am paid by the hour, but if I give you a ticket, I pledge to make you a balloon, even if I have to work overtime.
At public events, I use the tickets to end the line on time, or slightly over. When I am ending the line, the last person in line with a ticket is the end of the line. Anyone who tried to get in line will either see my CLOSED sign or I will personally tell them that I cannot make them a balloon today. For taking requests at events where the lines are long, I expedite the line with picture menu boards. These are great because even the tiniest guest can point to what they want.
At small, private parties, if time is plentiful, I break out magazines to help give guests ideas about designs I can make of more medium complexity. Commonly, the typical birthday party attendee chooses from the menu board and the birthday girl/boy chooses from the magazine's or I make them something a bit nicer ahead of time and give it to them ahead of time.
