About this pro
Balloon Creations has always produced outstanding work no matter what the event required. From small pieces to large outstanding productions for large events, Balloon Creations has never disappointed any of my clients. I always enjoyed the surprises for the fresh ideas, blending of colors and ideas that were sometimes out of this world.Jan 15, 2017
I have used Gail Putnam and Balloon Creations to provide balloon decorations for three different events in the last six years. In each case Gail was easy to work with, ready to make suggestions about the decor we wanted, and completely responsive to any changes or modifications we requested. For two different graduation parties, she helped decorate our backyard tent with both centerpieces and balloon arches, along with balloons at the front of the house. In both cases, I gave her a color scheme, some basic ideas, and she created the perfect balloons. For my daughter's sweet sixteen party, we had a tropical beach theme and she made balloon clusters with tropical beach colors and palm tree weights to hold them down. She also created 8-foot palm trees made out of balloons to line the dance floor! It was spectacular! Gail Putnam and Balloon Creations has been consistently excellent, always reliable, and remarkably reasonable with pricing. I would not hesitate to recommend Balloon Creations to anyone and I will absolutely hire them in the future if I'm fortunate enough to have a special event to celebrate.Aug 2, 2016

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The first thing I do is "listen" to my client. I will offer what I can to give them exactly what they have in mind. If they ask for options ... I usually have way too many and we end up talking about the pros and cons of each for their particular space. I'll sketch designs, bring color samples, put together a power point that I may email, giving my client the ability to take their time, look over different designs, share them with family and friends, and narrow down choices that work for them. It's a process, but it's worked for over 30 years.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?From the start, I've attended any class, seminar, and convention I could. There's nothing like learning new designs to get pumped up about getting into the shop and "playing" with new designs for my clients.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?When my youngest daughter had her 2nd birthday, I decorated the back patio with balloon bouquets. From there, the rest is history ...
