Event Journey

5 Types Of People Balloon Artist Meet

Dear readers,

Have you ever encountered customers who ask questions which you do not know how to answer?

Because balloon artists do encounter. Sometimes is ask about our well being but sometimes they ask…..a lot.


5 Types Of People Balloon Artist Meet

1) The Ask A Lot

Firstly, they ask about doing a balloon sculpture for their kids, then they proceed to ask about how you learn, how you started this balloon business. You may be thinking they want to hire your balloon sculpting service for future next time already but they continue to ask about your family, whether you have boyfriend/girlfriend and so on and so forth.

2) The Ask For A Lot

It is totally different from the 1st point because these people are asking for the impossible. They will ask for a balloon bus, a balloon train, a balloon house, a balloon LV bag and other things which are not possible to make within the time frame.

3) The Mind Changer

They ask for a dog for their son, then change their mind within 5 secs, ask for a sword then change again and it continues until they are satisfied.

4) Anything Also Can

I love these people! Some people may see you working so hard for your career and they know that you are knocking off because you are done for the event. They will ask you to make anything for their children just so as their kids will have something to play only.

5) The Take For Everyone

They like to share with everyone so they ask for their son, daughter, grand-daughters, grand-sons, nephew, niece, neighbours, neighbour’s son, neighbour’s daughter. Yes, basically, everyone they know.


My best buddy in entertainment made a video 2 years ago for “Types Of People Balloon Artists Meet”. View the video below for better illustration!

A Youtuber teaches how to make a balloon couple

Hi all!

I was finding some balloon tutorial for my own knowledge and i came across this young lady who teaches on youtube on how to make a balloon couple and she actually did it quite well despite she is not a professional balloon artist. I have seen the videos in her youtube and she is actually a normal Youtuber who introduces about hair, skin, face and some singing but pretty amazing that she does balloons very well!

Her name is Kelly Hongle


Do check out her tutorial if you want to know how to make a balloon couple to give your friends on their wedding day.

Republic Polytechnic Open House 2017

It had been 2 weeks after Polytechnic Open House 2017. The Balloon Thing once again did a customised balloon backdrop for DIOM. It has been 3 consecutive years that Republic Polytechnic DIOM hired The Balloon Thing to decorate their booth with balloons. Balloon decoration is mainly to attract the crowd and for photo taking session.

Let us go back to the past 2/3 years to reminisce The Balloon Thing’s amazing balloon decoration 🙂


2015

I went with the colour theme of Republic Polytechnic and i wanted to try out something different so i did this balloon arch tree. Although it has nothing related to DIOM except for the colours, i was glad that facilitators and students like them. A number of pictures were taken in their Facebook page.


2016

In 2016, this type of balloon photo booth was one of my favourite and i always propose this type of decoration to my clients because it looks grand and stunning. It looks exactly similar to a photo booth or a photo frame. This balloon photo frame can allow your creativity to go wild. It can be decorated with a lot of designs and it will stand out among the rest of the decoration.


2017

This was the latest balloon backdrop i did for DIOM this year. Finally i was abled to follow the theme and trust me, thinking of the tools to make and follow the theme was difficult but we made it. We made balloon ruler, balloon exponential chart, balloon pencil and balloon aeroplane. The theme for this year is mainly on SEG so it can be anything related to SEG, not only restricted to DIOM course. I felt satisfied of the balloon backdrop because it looked awesome isn’t it? 

Below are some pictures of students taking photo with the balloon backdrop.

All the pictures were taken from DIOM Facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/rpdiom/


I hope that i can continue to decorate DIOM’s booth every year. View my other balloon decoration below 🙂

Teaching you how to make a Christmas Balloon Tree!

Christmas is around the corner and i was browsing some videos on christmas trees so i thought, why not teach you how to make a christmas tree using balloons so that you can decorate in your house or give away to the children? Christmas balloon tree is actually quite easy and it only needs round balloons to form up the tree.

Never mind if you do not have the star foil as we used this star foils professionally during our balloon decoration. You can substitute with balloon flowers as well. 

A few days ago, DBS hired The Balloon Thing to set up a balloon christmas tree for their office. It look something like this.

This is a 2.2m tall christmas tree!


Thank so much for watching this tutorial i hope you had learn something from this video. I will make some balloon teaching videos as well for you! Stay tuned!

I found something interesting online when i was searching for balloon sculpting tutorial and i found out a girl on youtube, she likes anime a lot and in her channel, there are a lot of things talking about anime but, she is also a balloon lover like me! I saw some balloon twisting tutorials in her channel and is quite amazing because she is not a professional balloon artist but she has top notch standard of balloon skills.

She made a Cryaotic anime balloon sculpture and teaches in her video. It looked simple but it was incredible. She does not know the exact names when she was introducing the types of balloon but i admired her love for balloon sculpting. She also did some balloon sculptures that required difficult techniques.

A Mother’s Birthday Gift

Just 2 weeks ago, i did an interesting balloon backdrop decoration for my friend’s mother surprise birthday party. The discussion went well and i find that the decoration was interestingly unique. I personally have not done this kind of balloon decoration before so i was quite excited too.

Below was the finished product. Basically is a surprise for her mother. The balloon backdrop covered the whole entrance and the letter ‘J’ was her name which is Jenny. I called her Auntie Jenny 🙂 She had to burst the letter ‘J’ and the 2 sides of balloon columns will open for her and taa dah! all the guest, family and friends will sing birthday song suddenly! Such a heartwarming day for Auntie Jenny i would said.

The night before was extremely tiring and exhausted. Leyeon from Balloon Ranger and i set up the whole restaurant from 10pm to 2am. We helped my friend to set up the other balloons too.

Auntie Jenny complimented me on Facebook 🙂 Glad that the surprise went well smoothly.

balloon-party-surprise-testimonial

This was my friend’s huge compliment to me. As an entertainer, i was quite elated that people do appreciate the hard work that we balloonist put up. Yes, 6 years ago, i was their magician and balloonist.

balloon-decoration-testimonial

And….that was me 6 years ago performing for their family…time flies..

After this surprise birthday party, i found out that the older you grow, the more you realise that mother is your best friend you can ever have. During rebellious days in secondary school, you might think that parents are the most annoying in this world, but you will tend to appreciate them more when you grew up 🙂

Always love your mother because you will never get another.

Balloon artist also like to use pinterest to upload our artwork and for people to re-pin and save. It was a good platform to share as a social media other than Facebook and Instagram. The Balloon Thing do have pinterest account as well and i usually update it whenever i have a new balloon decoration done.

Let me show you some of the Pinterest worthy balloon decoration i have found online.


blue-helium-balloons

This is one of the balloon backdrop i found in pinterest and it gathers 19k re-pins! very amazing results and it looks really really nice. The balloon backdrop is made up of helium balloons and stacked in a bunch. I hope i will be able to do a balloon decoration like this in Singapore.

Oh ya, some of the designs i found in pinterest are in a pattern. Mostly people will re-pin and save because there is a theme like cartoon, elegant, princess. These are the usual that users will re-pin.


pink-balloon-backdrop

This balloon backdrop is more like a princess theme backdrop that consists of big and small balloons. It looks fantastic accompany with the dessert table set up in front. It gathers 16.4k pins!


diy-clock-balloons

When i first saw these helium balloons, i cannot believe this was so brilliant. A simple yet eye-catching balloon decoration. The clock concept was so intelligent! It really deserves the 12.6K pins!


21st-birthday-balloon-champagne

This champagne balloon decoration is really nice. Perfect for a 21st birthday party! It looks simple but actually the balloons need to stick on the wall nicely and proportionally so that it looks like the champagne that really pours out wine. This idea is brilliant and amazing i would say. Well deserved 59.2k pins!

Needless to say, this was from me, The Balloon Thing 🙂 When the first time i created Pinterest, i never expect this hello kitty balloon photo frame will gathers 487 pins!
