Our Story

Jessica Garda founded The Cheerful Balloon with the belief that every moment is worth celebrating. She started the business in her home in 2020 during the height of COVID lockdown when many people (including her own little kids) needed a little more joy in their lives. Balloons turned out to be the perfect medium for her to channel her creativity, passion for events, and desire to spread cheer.

After sharing her work on Facebook, the business quickly started to “blow up” and in July of 2022, The Cheerful Balloon found its permanent home on Main Street in Washington, PA.
