Hi, I'm Jessica,

owner of The Cheerful Balloon, and that one quote is my company's entire reason for existing. Here's our story...

The Cheerful Balloon is my pandemic baby, born out of a need to keep my two human babies entertained and smiling during a really crappy time.

It all started with a YouTube video and a pack of 260s (twisting balloons...). I made basic balloon animals one afternoon for my two girls, then ages 1 and 4. The youngest didn't care much, but the oldest kept demanding more and more intricate designs. Think that scene from Wedding Crashers, "Make me a bicycle, clown!"

After that, I started decorating the house with balloon garlands just to surprise them when they woke up. I even put a few garlands out in the wild with a message thanking all those on the front line pandemic. (Swipe for a picture. It's sad looking, but well meaning).

The next chapter was my Balloon Buddy program. Through the program, over 120 people from 7 different states donated enough for materials to make 233 balloon bears for the residents of Asbury Senior Living. These sweet people had been quarantined for months without the chance to see their loved ones. With the bears, we were able to send them love and a smile!

It was after then that I decided to make #balloonsmiles full time!!

Each garland, bouquet, arrangement, and #ballooncaricature is made with love and joy and with absolute confidence that it will bring a smile to your face.

Because I dare you *not* to smile when you're holding a balloon.
