I started Balloons and Bubbles Party Planning upon my return to South Africa, following 13 years of living in the UK. Having worked as a Business Development Manager in the Financial Services Industry for many years I decided that now was the time to make a change and swap the boring grey suits for a bit of colour, fun and excitement – more in tune with my personality.
In 2014, Balloons & Bubbles was born! Little did I know that I had unleashed a real passion within myself for event planning and decor. As my small party planning business was growing I started taking an interest in professional balloon decor in order to set my parties apart from the competition.
A new passion for balloon decor emerged and I started investing in training and workshops in order to improve these skills. Before long the party planning side of the business diversified into balloon decor for any occasion. Magically the two main elements of my business complimented each other perfectly and we were able to continue to provide top quality kids party and balloon decor services to our ever growing pool personal & corporate clients.
From this point onwards it was my desire to become one of the top balloon decorators in the country by achieving my CBA (Certified Balloon Artist) status in 2017. The CBA certification process establishes industry standards and guidelines for balloon professionals worldwide.
