School dances, school fundraisers, and many other events are perfect opportunities to DRESS UP THE PLACE. Why not use balloons? Balloons are a cost effective way to fill large spaces and create the atmosphere of your choice.
The weather is cooling down here in Las Vegas, thankfully. School has started and students will be involved in all kinds of different after school activities and sports. Sin City Balloons has participated in decorating for the opening day of South Summerlin Little League for the past couple of years. We love decorating for the kids! Check out our latest work on our Facebook page for Sin City Balloons.
It's summertime here in Las Vegas and our temperatures have been triple digits for weeks now.
All balloon artists know that balloon decorating in the outdoors can be very challenging even under the best of conditions, but with our Las Vegas valley temps, extra precautions need to be taken. For instance, when decorating with balloon columns or balloon arches to be used outdoors, it's best to use larger balloons and size down considerably.
Also, dark colors attract the heat and light colors detract from the heat so just like you don't want to wear black clothing outdoors in the heat, you don't want to use dark colored balloons in the heat.
Another hazard of the heat are helium filled foil balloons.
Foil balloons filled with helium do not work in the heat, period! Helium expands with the heat and can cause your foil balloons to just burst. Nothing is so discouraging as hearing that POP! sound after you've gotten in the car after just purchasing a bunch of foil balloons for your event.
Sin City Balloon's professionals take all the precautions necessary to make your outdoor event as successful as possible.
One of the nice things about hiring a balloon professional is that we do all the work and you get to relax and enjoy the party!
Since my personal commitment has always been to grow and improve myself, of course that commitment would extend to my business, Sin City Balloons, as well.
When I heard that the West Coast Balloon Arts Convention (WCBA) was coming to town, and was being held in my own back yard at the M Resort, how could I pass up the opportunity to once again, participate and learn some new advanced skills? Of course, my motivation was to add to my repertoire of service offerings that can benefit my customers as well as myself.
I focused most of my classes on foam cutting, personalizing balloons, and making balloon decor that stands out, above the rest.
Do you know how much fun balloons can be? I had a blast playing with balloons this month!
Thank you to all the talented teachers at WCBA, this year!
Earlier this year, I gave myself the opportunity to participate as a full delegate at Float, The Convention 2015, in St. Louis, MO for five days. What a fabulous experience I had learning new techniques, meeting old friends, making new friends, and surrounding myself with the wondrous art of balloons and extremely gifted balloon artists. I got to stay with my old friend, Mona, who had recently moved from Las Vegas to St. Louis and she graciously taxied me to and from the convention. Mona and I worked together at Pulte Homes as Customer Relations Managers and both of us had eventually gotten laid off during the Great Recession and Housing Crash. Scrambling to find our way back to a place of security and safety, we went separate ways but maintained our friendship through it all.
I remember back in 1998, while I was still working as a table games dealer at Caesars Palace, here in Las Vegas I was introduced to the business of balloons by a neighbor. I recall how stunned I was to discover that balloons could be a profitable business and that they were so much more than "just a balloon on a ribbon". Today, after many years of practice and educational opportunities that God provided for and guided me to, I can create interesting and fascinating balloon decorations, balloon gifts and arrangements, and twist balloons into fun animals and hats! Everyone gives me so much accolades for what I do, but the truth is, if it hadn't been for that neighbor and all the many gracious, generous, fun loving balloon pros out there who taught me, I wouldn't be where I am today.
I'm so lucky to have discovered balloons!
