The staffers at Special Occasions Party Supply weave art out of air. Their balloon decorations spiral into multicolored columns, bend into archways, and form hanging hearts to garnish events ranging from birthday celebrations to bridal and baby showers. The family-owned business also outfits reception areas with tulle and matching tableware, sprucing up the setting to befit any celebration.
Decorating services are only one facet of their job, however. When they aren't prepping dance halls, they guide independent party planners through the shelves of their two supply stores. Batman- and Disney-princess-themed favors are on hand to charm children, Halloween costumes can conceal identities, and more than 38 solid colors of plates and napkins set attractive schemes. The bouquets of high-grade helium balloons are guaranteed to hover for at least five days. Patrons can also rent helium tanks with do-it-yourself balloon kits, which come with ribbons for each balloon and instructions for knitting sky-size safety nets.
