NC woman's balloon business is taking off!
Check out these cool balloon decorations.
It's a trend that is popping up everywhere balloons, life sized installations that include hundreds or even thousands of balloons. Balloon installations are an amazing way to lean into a party theme. They're a great way to enhance a color palette and to create a great backdrop. North Carolina's Amber Ford Open balloon blueprint two years ago after struggling with a kit she bought for her daughter's birthday and it was a headache to put together and figure out. And then, in the end, it still didn't look anything like I wanted. After some training, Ford launched her own business, joining the ranks of professional party planners who make elaborate displays for any occasion, including the birthday of a Facebook famous dog. It is hard for people to realize the value that Aaron balloons mosaics are becoming a big part of Ford's business. I hand make every single shape, every single design, so I draw them out. I cut them out, I hear them together and then I fill them with all sizes of balloons. Even with the proper tools and technique, Ford says it could take 8 to 10 hours to create one of her designs. There's a lot of sweaty work. But it's fun. Experts say it's not impossible for a diehard do it yourselfer to tackle a simple arch for Garland themselves. Don't overthink the size of the balloons or your color skiing too much. What you want to do is have fun with it and go with the flow. And the fun doesn't have to end after the event is over. Balloon installations can last for months if you don't pop them dance. Gentlemen, NBC News.
