It’s been a long time since I’ve updated this blog (isn’t that always the case?) so I’m going to give you the highlights since last time I posted and then we’ll be all up to date. Sound good?
- I did a beautiful and very fancy first/third birthday party at the Four Seasons Boston.
- I learned how to make a balloon Hello Kitty and my daughter was very pleased.
- Not balloon related: I had a baby! He turned 1 and wore a balloon hat.
Now I’m all up to date and hope to keep it that way!
I love a good trade. When no money has to exchange and both people get something they want, it’s a good deal in my book. So I was super excited to participate in my first balloon gig barter for Sylvia’s birthday party. I had contacted Heather Mansfield of Music Together to see if she would be available to do a little sing-along for Sylvia’s 2nd birthday party this year. Unfortunately, the date I picked was also the weekend of her son’s Ian’s birthday party. Bummer, right? Heather was actually looking for some birthday party entertainment for Ian’s party and when I joked that maybe he’d like balloons, she said, “Actually, that’s a great idea!”
Heather and I coordinated the parties so that I could come do Ian’s Train-Themed-But-Eventually-Became-Pirate-Themed party on Saturday and then she would come do Sylvia’s Music-Themed party on Sunday. A perfect trade!
Here are some fun pictures from both parties. It was a great weekend of birthday fun for everyone!
