Quite a Workout

Monday, February 28th, 2011

If you made it to the grand opening of LA Fitness in St. Petersburg Saturday, you saw the balloon columns, balloon arches, balloon bouquets, and giant outdoor helium balloons we (Tony the Balloon Guy and Face Painter Phyllis ) provided for the festivities.

*Whew*

Have a fun day!

Can You Blame Her?

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

I explained to the 3-year-old that I would make her a super-giant birthday hat of balloons, then make something for her friends, and create more things for her along the way, since it was her special day.

She was horrified.

“NO! NOTHING FOR MY FRIENDS!!!”

At Least She Knows WHICH Cow It Is

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

I (Tony the Balloon Guy) am making a balloon animal for a little girl.

The little girl points at a mascot who is dancing nearby.  She asks, “Why is the Chick-Fil-A cow here?”

Uh, that’s because we’re at Chick-Fil-A.

By the way, I’m at that Chick-Fil-A now every Tuesday, 5:30-7:30pm, in  Citrus Park Mall.

Have a fun day!

Say Cheese! (Tampa Bay area – St. Petersburg-Clearwater-Brandon-Lakeland-Tampa – balloon artist/balloon twister makes a cheesey balloon hat for a Packer backer)

Friday, February 4th, 2011

Here’s a quick Packer-backer hat I (Tony the Balloon Guy) cranked out in a restaurant.  Dad was a good sport, and let his daughter take a picture, which got back to me, and now you have it!  I have made a couple fancier green-and-gold hats the last few days, too.

The Pack Is Back!

To be fair, I’ve made a few Steelers hats lately, too.  We can all be friends, and let the teams settle it Sunday on the field, right?

Have a fun day!
