A Look Back: May 2017

Published by Balloons by Tommy on

Our favorite decor from May 2017

Every month we highlight a few of our favorite and most noteworthy events from the past month.

Kentucky Derby Weekend

The horses were ready, and so were we! Celebrating the Derby in Chicago calls for balloon roses, a horseshoe sculpture, and (of course) racing horses! Three large horseshoes were made in black and gold balloons for two separate location installs. A total of about 200 red balloon roses were made to decorate the events. A large number of those roses were added to the ends of our “wiggle fireworks”. Others were suspended from the ceilings with an attached green spiral stem. Large 5 petal flowers were also created to add to the decor. Several horse shaped mylar balloons hung from the ceiling in a manner that made them look to be racing each other. Overall, the look definitely said, “It’s derby time!”.

Rainbow Birthday Celebrations

Rainbow decor is so much fun because of all the color! We really enjoyed setting up these two separate birthday parties.  Peyton was having a “Rainbow Glitter Unicorn” party at her home, we think we nailed the theme. The second birthday party featured two rainbow balloon walls in their event space, Sole2Soul.

Memorial Day

This year we were a part of the Itasca, IL Memorial Day parade and had a great time! Our “float” was a huge hit with our balloon flag and balloon USA letters. This was the first year for us in this parade and look forward to more in the Itasca community!
