How to Make Balloon Animals | Ladybug Balloon Tutorial

Hi, there!

So you like balloon twisting?

I made a video you can watch on YouTube about How to Make Balloon Animals and learn a fun ladybug balloon design.

Not too difficult to twist, this ladybug is fun and impressive. It uses 6 balloons and you could make the eyes with one white round balloon instead of using two.

Friends will love this. Try it out and let me know how it turned out. :)

Cheers,
Elaine

How to Make Balloon Animals | Puppy balloon tutorial

Hi, there!

Today's post is for the balloon twister in you. :)

I was inspired by a photo I saw on Pinterest of a super cute puppy balloon animals so I got to work trying to figure out how it was put together.

It uses 4 balloons and a scrap. In this design I used 350q balloons rather than the standard 260q.

In case you're wondering about the numbers... the 3 in 350 refers to the diameter of the balloon. The 50 refers to the length in inches.

I love this design!

It's BIG.

Kids love puppies and this will be adorbs for them!

Wear it on your wrist or on a hairband.

When it comes to balloon animals for parties this puppy balloon is too cute not to be a hit!

Have a fabulous weekend... :)

DIY Unicorn Balloon Table Top Decoration

Hi, there,

Today I want to share with you my new YouTube video (just uploaded!) about doing your own unicorn balloon table top decor.

Unicorns are awesome!

They're super fun and girls love them along with rainbows and lots of other cool stuff. Since Unicorns are all the rage right now, I wanted to show you how to put together this do-it-yourself balloon decor.

I do include a few twisted balloon elements, but you can always leave those off and still have a cool design. These look great on any table.

The design is big and impressive. It will definitely get the WOW factor you want for your party.

Check out the video and let me know your thoughts.

Here's the link to my YouTube channel Hooray Balloons Kids Entertainment YouTube Channel.

Cheers,

Love Is in the Air!

Hi, there,

February is the month of love. Not only is it special because it is a time we can give small gifts showing our love and appreciation for our partners, children and our friends, but February is a time to think about what you love doing.

What excites you?

What do you have an interest in and want to share with others?

I absolutely love entertaining children with face painting. Kids get so excited to figure out what they want to be. They jockey for position in line and then when it's their turn to get into the chair they feel super special.

All children should be made to feel special. Face painting gives me the opportunity to do this. You should find out what makes you happy and do what you love.

I have been building this website based around my balloon twisting and face painting interests. I want to share with you the fun I have at the parties where I'm invited to entertain. This website helps me share my interests and I enjoy how a non-techie like myself can do this.

Find what you love and definitely do it.

Cheers,
Elaine

A Unicorn Princess Party

Hi, there!

The weekend was busy with birthday party fun! I enjoyed the privilege of face painting at a princess party, a unicorn party and a My Little Pony party.

What fun!

The kids had a great time and as a local Vallejo face painter, I really enjoy the opportunity to paint locally. The moms and their guests are so gracious and kind. It was absolute fun and my daughter joined me offering glitter tattoos for the kids. They loved it!!

If you're looking for a Bay Area balloon twister or face painter, I can help. Drop me a note and I'll get in touch!

Have a great day!

Is it goodbye to balloon hand pumps?

Hi, there,

If you've been using balloon hand pumps for inflating balloons at parties or events, you may find your hands, wrists and arms get tired after a bit.

One of the upgrades I made to my balloon twisting business was purchasing a Mini Mac light balloon floor pump.

It works like a charm!

I enjoy how smooth and easily it inflates my 260 balloons. It handles all sizes including 160q balloons which is a time saver. No more switching between a 260 pump and a 160 pump.

Kids absolutely love seeing balloons inflate and shoot straight up from the pump. This alone makes the Mini Mac light balloon floor pump a lot of fun to use.

I still bring balloon hand pumps with me on all my gigs, but using the Mini Mac pump has been a real time saver.

Check out my video on YouTube and let me know what you think!

Cheers,
Elaine

Where to Buy and How to Make Balloon Arches

Wondering how to make balloon arches? In this tutorial I show you how to make a rainbow balloon arch using a balloon arch kit I bought from Amazon.

It's all pretty easy to do with a simple set up and easy breakdown. All balloons are inflated to 11 inches, but ordinarily should be undersized to allow the balloons to expand if needed due to temperatures.

The above tutorial and others will be posted every Thursday to my YouTube channel @hoorayballoonsentertainment.

Thanks for watching!
