I was unsuccessful at locating a balloon twister for my event so I decided to learn how to twist balloon animals. I was also able to find some amazing YouTube channels to learn from and my kids had tons of suggestions. After hours of practicing, I was ready for my first event!
Music and a Movie was a huge success. Amongst the Live Music, Movie Screening, and Bubble Machines, the Balloon Twisting was a hit! The kids kept coming back for more balloons and soon I ran out completely! We were able to raise a ton of support for The Helping Center, a local food bank!
After that event I kept my balloon twisting a secret, only making balloons for special occasions. My kids kept coming up with new ideas and soon I had countless balloon designs memorized. Occasionally I would show up to events, such as Eeyores Birthday Party, and give away balloon art.
One day, while chatting about hidden talents with a co-worker, we discovered we had a matching talent: Balloon Twisting! I teamed up with him and his wife and their company: Austin Kids Parties
Unfortunately the COVID-19 pandemic arrived and I had to re-think my balloon services. This is when Balloon.Services was born! During the pandemic I offered balloon delivery services to bring pre-twisted balloons to my customers! Now that the pandemic has lifted, I am back to offering in-person balloon twisting services!
