OK, come on, just admit it. Everyone loves balloons. Kids love them. Adults love them. You love them too, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this article, right? Some people love balloons openly and passionately while others love them deep down, but bring a balloon artist into the picture, hand adults some balloon sculptures, and all of a sudden you have adults talking to their neighbor with their balloon character just like they did when they were eight years old. These little bubbles of joy have a tendency to bring out the kid in you.
It makes sense really. Think back on the parties and events you went to when you were a kid. What do you remember? If you’re like me it’s usually not much. What sticks with us are the things that made that time different, special, or more emotional than the rest of life’s experiences. Balloons were unique, fun, and something you didn’t experience day in and day out. When you did encounter them they were items of wonder and amazement, and they were a blast to play with. Even something as simple as a helium balloon was a prize to be treasured.
A balloon artist does more than just twist fun balloon creations. A balloon artist makes new positive memories that stick and brings back positive emotional associations from the past. That’s why balloon twisting at an event is so special. It’s a memory maker.
Twisted balloons come from fun people! At least they should. It takes a certain type of personality to want to twist balloon art for a living. These people are usually very creative, have a good sense of humor, and make the balloon twisting experience a memorable show in and of itself. They interact very well with both kids and adults and leave a lasting positive impression.
Twisted balloons are special. Kids will take their balloon art home with them and play with it until it either pops from wear or becomes deflated later from sheer age or loss of air. I have had an adult take a large flower sculpture home and keep it in a special place in her house for a month. Yes, it stayed inflated that long. I guarantee she will never forget that balloon.
People put a lot of planning, time, effort, and sometimes money into creating their special event. It is fun at the time but eventually as time goes by details fade and memories blur. People probably won’t remember the cake and they may not remember what games they played, but they will remember the balloons.
