Brenda at the Balloon People is one of the most amazing and talented balloon artists in Texas. My background is the party industry (purchasing and merchandising) and based on my experience I have personally accredited the Balloon People.
Balloon People is the only company in the greater Austin, TX area that I researched in early 2012 that does balloon art. Balloon art & sculpting means great and elegant detail in decorating banquet halls, weddings, conferences, adult formal dances (more luxurious than high school proms). If I could post photos I would but I know you can contact her and the team directly, she has photos from a Valentine event I planned. I searched all over the country and called on my contacts trying to locate someone in the central Texas area to produce this type of arrangement for me. Brenda was the only person who was quite capable. I contacted several Balloon service companies in Austin and could not get anyone who talent beyond balloon twisting (kid's party animals) and basic sculptures like those of a persons face (however even they had bad reviews based on their professionalism).
Brenda saved the event because she was the only person/company capable of creating the look and design I desired for the formal valentines dinner and dance in very prominent, high-end neighborhood. She also was able to save the day when she found out the event was only 3 weeks away. She stuck by my side during one of her most busiest seasons.
I would use Balloon People one hundred times over. She is now on my close-knit vendor list which I scrutinize very carefully since I plan multiple events.
They offer a variety of party services besides balloons!
Thank you Balloon People for everything you did!!!!
AND NOW A WORD OR TWO FROM OUR CLIENTS...
I had the pleasure of first working with Balloon People at my baby shower. Brenda made huge baby bottles out of balloons, along with other amazing balloon bouquets. After seeing photos of her equally amazing face painting, I inquired about belly painting for my pregnant belly. Again, she didn't fail to deliver. I've had her do my daughters birthday parties as well, and the balloons, face painting, and glitter tattoos are ALWAYS a hit!
When it comes to any event, I'll recommend Balloon People 100%, and they are the only number I'm going I keep. The professionalism we received through an entertainment company was amazing.
I've been unfortunate enough to work with a few other Austin area party businesses, and have been very disappointed not only in the quality of work I receive, but the lack of professionalism shown. If you read these reviews and go by what you read, look no further, because Balloon People will deliver every time. I've been very happy, and will continue to hire them at any party!
Working with Balloon People has been a great experience. Brenda is a joy to work with. She is so incredibly helpful and kind. We had a few last minute changes to our order adding on more balloons and work for her, but she was gracious and glad to help. She arrived early to set up, did a great job, and was prompt to come back and tear down after our event. Everything went smoothly, and the balloon arch and bouquets looked amazing! We couldn't have asked for better service.
Brenda is an incredibly talented artist and very good with children. Her calm, sweet demeanor added so much to our HOA event and her paintings were the highlight of the event, hence the long lines.
It's unfortunate that someone shared a negative review after receiving a free, beautiful facepainting compliments of the generosity of the HOA, but it is not a reflection on Brenda or her stellar work, just on the popularity of her service at a well attended event.
We will absolutely use Brenda for any and all face painting events - she is unquestionably the best, and extremely sweet and professional.
We have been wowed by the creativity of Balloon People. Brenda has provided decorations for both of my daughters' bat mitzvah parties, and has done an amazing job each time (3 years apart). The quality of her work shows, and her design creativity is amazing. Both parties had two very different themes, and she was able to create balloon arrangements, centerpieces, arches and pillars that worked for each party.
She and her staff work really hard, and set up the balloons on site which is much better than having the vendor bring them already blown up (just in case something happens along the way).
Thank you Brenda for adding such "wow", color and fun to both of our parties.
