Los Angeles and Beyond ...

Hard to believe that the month of January is almost over already, feels like it was just Christmas. Could be because I have been doing a lot of traveling and will only be home about 13 days out of the month.  Part of my job is traveling to teach and speak to other balloon and event professionals across the country. 

So where have I been just in January?

How to Decorate your Car Showroom with Balloons

Every Car Commercial on TV has them . . . Balloons! So why doesn't your showroom?
Have you been thinking about adding balloons to your showroom?
Not really sure who to call or if it can be done?
Well, you've come to the right place!  This blog will give you some examples and what to consider  when choosing to add balloons decor your showroom floor.

Things to consider when hiring an outside company to decorate your showroom:

  • Is the staff dressed in professional corporate attire?
  • Do they arrive on time and act in a professional manner? 
  • Are they insured and able to produce a COI? W-9? Business License?
  • Do they have a professional website and portfolio of their work? Are they able to provide references?
  • Is the company a member of any professional organization? Chamber of Commerce, Business Association, etc.
  • Do they come fully prepared with their own ladders, equipment, scissors, etc? 
  • Do they install during non-peak hours, so as not to disrupt your sales floor?
Car Sales and Balloons are like Peanut Butter and Jelly, they naturally go together!

 

  • How high is the ceiling in your showroom? As a courtesy we will measure this for you and suggest options that will look best, based on your ceiling height.
  • What is the temperature where the balloons will be installed? Will the balloons be exposed to full sun? We bring a thermal temperature gauge to insure where your balloons will be installed will last the longest possible time.  
  • Foil or Latex? They both have pros and cons. Foil balloons can be costly,  are limited in colors and are affected by temperature changes; however, they offer many seasonal design choices. Latex balloons will oxidize (turn velvety looking), are the most economical and have many colors to choose from. Both choices can be personalized with your logo or text.
  • What is your ceiling made of? If you ceiling is a typical drop ceiling or has exposed steal beams, then we can use our Magnetic Installation System, which requires no ladders or lifts (up to 29ft)
There are endless options and prices when choosing to decorate your showroom with professional balloon decor.

Halloween is in the Air!

Trick or Treat...Smell my Feet...well you know the rest!

How cool is it that Halloween is on a Saturday this year?!

I for one, am super excited!!!! WHY?  Beacuse Halloweene is one of my favorite holidays. You can say I sort of have an additction. You know that one house in the neighborhood? The one that the kids are in awe over and the adults are like for real? Yup, that is us (or as my husband and kids would say) it is all me. We (I) started with a grave yard for a front yard, complete with fog machines, haunted sound and special FX, as you entet the parolor (aka our living room), animated characters tell a story as you wander from room to room, toward the rear of the house where you exit into the backyard hay maze to finish the night with a family friendly outdoor movie, complete with popcorn and treats!

Yes, I told you I have a slight obsession…so ifyou are in the area, I hope you willstop on by for a spell!

Oh and if you wante to Scare-Up an awesome party – I am your ghoul…

Happy Haunting,

Jill
