Naomi, the owner and lead designer at Red Balloon Company, began balloon twisting at age 13 to combat her fear of balloon popping. Many pops later, she twists balloons at all kinds of parties and events, makes personalized sculptures and conducts balloon twisting workshops. She has created personalized sculptures for celebrities such as Al Roker, Kathie Lee, Hoda Kotb, Adam Sandler, Former MA Governor Michael Dukakis, Rachel Platten (“Fight Song”), Susan Olsen (“Cindy Brady” of The Brady Bunch) and Sir Paul McCartney (he called his sculpture “Brilliant!”). Balloon twisting has become a perfect way for Naomi to combine her creativity and her love for hanging out with little kids.
Currently residing in Arlington, Massachusetts with her husband and two children, Naomi enjoys all things red. Her favorite balloon to make is a ladybug.
Naomi was amazing! She made ballooon animals and monsters that I didn’t think were possible! She got along with both the children and adults at our event! We originally booked her for 2 hours but she was such a hit that we asked her to stay another hour. She accommodated this request and was busy the entire time. I would have to say she was the hit of the event! Highly recommend her! Thanks Naomi for making the evening fun for all!

I have now had the pleasure of working with Naomi for two consecutive years on my company’s event, Jumpstart’s Read for the Record. I can honestly say that her balloons are what make the event what it is. Each year children and adults alike have been thrilled by the spectacle that are her massive balloon sculptures, which look to have been taken directly from the pages of the books we are reading. I will never work with anyone else!

Naomi was great with the kids and is incredibly talented. She was able to make them anything and everything they asked for.
