Paint The City Pink - Arches and More Arches!

This weekend, one of our events was a great community service celebration called Heartfelt Alternatives "Paint the City Pink" Back to School Community Bash held at Chavis Park.  We did arches and columns in hot pink, black and white all over the park!  The purpose of PTCP is to help raise awareness for mental health issues, while simultaneously giving back to the community by providing book bags and school supplies.  How lucky we were to be included in such an amazing event!

Happy 16th Birthday Wilkins - Luau Party

Today is a very important day in the Blooming Balloons family!  Our third generation employee turns 16!  Wil does entertainment twisting for us, as well as helps out on decor jobs and today is his birthday!  He is honestly an amazing young man. Being a family-owned business, you know I had to brag!  But I will tie it back to balloons!  Wil doesn't like a lot of attention and doesn't let me throw birthday parties for him.  But three years ago, he let me and his nana, Judy, throw him a huge bash at the Crabtree Marriott.  We invited his whole 8th grade class.  The theme was luau and we went crazy!  There was a 12ft balloon volcano that had smoke and lit up lava.  There was a name arch with palm trees and a different luau themed centerpiece for every table.  We had ceiling busters and a hanging dance floor, as well as a fun tunnel entryway.  Here are just a few photos from that fun event in celebration of this wonderful day!  Thanks to our clients for letting us celebrate your special days, as well!

Anniversary Party at The Cotton Company

This past weekend, we decorated an Anniversary Party at The Cotton Company in Wake Forest.  What a fun venue!  Downstairs is filled with all sorts of vendor booths featuring amazing home decor, and upstairs was a beautiful party room! 

We made the room more festive with these Double Bubble Cloud centerpieces held to the base with a lovely matching purple sheer ribbon.  Our anniversary couple was celebrating 20 years of marriage!

This job came to us through our website contact form.  Have you checked out our website lately?  It's one click away at!  Please contact us for your next event!

Frozen Themed Birthday Party

Frozen is so popular and this is the first time we've been able to do a birthday party with the Frozen theme.  We made Anna and Elsa centerpieces, as well as some Snowflake centerpieces.  All of these had the most beautiful glittering snowflakes on the balloons.  So pretty!  We also did hanging snowflakes made from linking balloons that were suspended from the ceiling.

What theme can we bring to life for your next event?

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Kick-Off Breakfast

We try to bring something new to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Kick-Off Breakfast each year, so this time we focused on the slogan "Finish The Fight" and spelled it out in 4 ft letters in the front of the room.  We also created a 10ft tall balloon wall backdrop featuring a pink awareness ribbon to go behind the speakers' podium.  To round out the decor, we added fireworks columns along the walls and hanging fireworks and ribbons in the registration area.  Lastly, we hung a the word HOPE over the Survivor's Table.  We are so inspired by the efforts of MSABC and we hope our decor added something special to their important kick-off event!

Two Events for Verizon this week!

We love our corporate clients and this week we had two opportunities to work with Verizon.  The first event, on Wednesday was for a Verizon executive's birthday party held at the Oakz Restaurant on Glenwood.  We did some Blue & White Balloon Trees to match the theme of University of Kentucky.

The second event was the Second Quarter Employee Appreciation Luncheon at the beautiful Capital City Club downtown.  That event was done in Verizon's signature colors of Red & White.  We did more Balloon Trees and some elegant Grecian Columns.

Welcome Little Prince Baby Shower

Another baby shower from this past weekend, but with a fun color scheme and theme that made it a little different!  The colors were Royal Blue and Orange and the theme was Welcome Little Prince.  Of course, the new prince needed a crown, so we made one to go between two baby bottles at the head of the room where the new mom was sitting.  We also did Double Bubble centerpieces with custom printed balloons inside, Party Poles for around the room, and a pacifier buffet piece.  The room was full of beautiful balloons and lots of happy people!

It's A Girl! Baby Shower

It was a baby shower weekend!  Here's the first baby shower we did for a wonderful first time mother and father welcoming a new baby girl at the end of this month.  We did pink baby bottles at the entrance, a baby bottle arch with pacifiers at the "mama couch", a baby in a bassinet for the gift table, and a buffet piece with pacifiers and an"It's A Girl" bow for the food table.

This whole shower was a surprise for the new mom and we had so much fun planning with the very excited daddy!  Best wishes for a healthy baby girl!
