Ariana Villarreal remembers those magical, colourful balloons from her childhood birthdays.
She still smiles when think of those loud vivid colours. She’d dance in a room filled with floating balloons, taking pictures in front of the ballon arch, and feel like the happiest little girl in the world.
Now a mother of two, Villarreal tries to recreate those joyful memories for her kids. While it took her several frustrated trails to realize that managing a balloon wall for a kid’s birthday isn’t the easiest thing in the world.
“I had this (decor) idea in my head, but couldn’t accomplish it. It was an epic fail,” says Villarreal. “But I kept trying and researching, and started to explore this wonderful art of balloon decorating.”
And she didn’t stop exploring. Now five years into balloon venue decorating, Villarreal knows there are many more special occasions for those colourful arches to rise.
“Life is worth celebrating,” says the balloon artist. “When we celebrate, we want to celebrate it loudly.”
Whether it’s an anniversary or the start of something new, there’s room for a balloon bouquet to set the tone. While you could purchase decor packages from BoomBalloon’s website, don’t hesitate to ask for a custom order if you’d really want to spoil a loved one.
For Valentine’s Day, BoomBalloon features a list of romantic ballon decor including the Tic Tac Toe Hearts, Jumbo Flower Bouquet and Maxi Hot Air Balloon. Love truly is in the air!
