Chic Spotlight: Balloon Bombed
Missing friends and family and want to show them how much you care? Tell them they’re the bomb with this creative local company.
Cincy Chic: What is Balloon Bombed?
Chrissie Blatt, Founder of Balloon Bombed & CBC Event Planning: The Balloon Bombed mission is all about spreading joy! You can send a Balloon Bomb to a friend, family member or colleague for a special occasion or just to remind them that they are awesome! You can send it anonymously and the Balloon Bombed team will keep your secret! Imagine arriving home or waking up to a burst of colorful balloons on your doorstep or even covering part of your house! Balloon Bombs can also be custom designed for virtual event backdrops, retail window displays, galas, events and much more! The Balloon Bombed way is big, bright, and happy. Balloon Bombs are filled with air so they last longer and you can enjoy them for an extended period of time or even pass them on!
Cincy Chic: What’s the inspiration behind Balloon Bombed?
Baltt: Sigh. The world is a tough place to live in right now and we believe that doing things for other people can help brighten the day of not only the recipient but the giver as well. Now is the time to give back, tell people that you appreciate them and do your part to spread a little bit of love. Sure… they are just balloons but the smiles that they create are contagious. Also, we are all looking for ways to celebrate safely and uniquely during the pandemic – we think that Balloon Bombs do just that!
Cincy Chic: Who’s behind the business?
Blatt: In the midst of the pandemic Balloon Bombed I recognized that the large events I had on the calendar for 2020 and 2021 were cancelling or moving to a later date, leaving quite a gap in my work life! I have a true love of balloons, working with people, spreading joy, and building something beautiful, all of which created the perfect recipe for Balloon Bombed. Balloon bombing is art! The mixing of colors, shapes and sizes as well as the juxtaposition of the balloons against a structure gives the Balloon Bombed Team the creative outlet they were looking for. And the best part? Getting pictures and messages from clients with their happy reviews! It is a true feel good kind of business.
Cincy Chic: How does balloon bombing work?
Blatt: You can place an order by sending our team a message through Facebook or Instagram! All we need is a delivery date, photo of where you would like it to be installed, area of town to be delivered, colors or theme and budget. Once we know the details we can design something perfect for you! We can install Balloon Bombs inside or outside and they can be as big as you can imagine (the bigger the better we say)! Balloon Bombs are 100% custom and start at $125. We currently serve NE Cincinnati and prefer at least 2 weeks notice to account for design and ordering.
Cincy Chic: What makes Balloon Bombed unique?
Blatt: What we do is customized for you! Balloon bombs are created with the recipient in mind. Love pink? We can mix the perfect pinks, sizes and shapes of balloons to make a custom “bomb” that is “pinkalicious.” Is tie-dye your thing? Let us create a funky colorful “bomb” with lots of swirly marbled balloons to fit your vibe. There are so many wonderful ways for us to celebrate each-other and we think the Balloon Bombs are a great way to mix it up from the traditional gifts!
