St. Petersburg Balloon Artist for Birthday Parties and Other Special Events Just Has That Look

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

“Thank you!!!! For an amazing party today! The kids as always loved you!!!”
-Nicole Santana

Sometimes when I (Tony the Balloon Guy) ask a youngster what they’d like made of balloons, they say they want ME made of balloons.

That’s just weird.

A lot of times I’ll try to steer them toward something they’d enjoy more, but sometimes THIS happens.

By the way, more than a thousand families like yours have invited our family business to celebrate birthdays with them. We are also a favorite at school, church, company and corporate events, including fairs, festivals, holiday parties and grand openings.

So how do people get entertainment for parties and special events?

  • You can pay an agent, party/event planner, total entertainment company, or other middleman a commission on each entertainer they hire for you. Even if they refer to “our face painters” or “our balloon artists,” they are charging you to hire someone. Sometimes even the person answering the phone is getting a cut, and only being paid if you book the party or event! Of course, in this modern Internet Age, you could hire entertainers yourself and NOT pay commissions. Wouldn’t it be funny if a middleman hired US for you, when you could have booked us yourself without paying a commission? It happens!!!
  • You can spend time hiring entertainers yourself. By cutting out the middleman, you save the commissions. But you still pay full price for each entertainer if you’re hiring more than one, such as a balloon artist AND a face painter.
  • We can provide your event entertainment, and give you a DISCOUNT for combining entertainers. You save money because WE’RE the professional entertainers. And you can read our testimonials and/or see us in action at one of our weekly open-to-the-public appearances (click here for days, times and locations) to check out the quality of our entertainment!

Orlando Balloon Twister at Birthday Party Meets Three Generations of Princesses

“Thank you!!!! For an amazing party today! The kids as always loved you!!!”
-Nicole Santana

One of the best things about doing balloon entertainment for a birthday party for a little girl who is turning 70 years old is that she is old enough to have a daughter who is old enough to have her OWN daughter, and then I (Tony the Balloon Guy) can make balloon hats for three generations!!!

Kids Magic for Tampa Birthday Parties (Orlando, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Too) With No Bunnies Injured!!!

Sunday, September 23rd, 2012

One the junior partners in our family business was helping me (Tony the Balloon Guy) pack for a magic show at a birthday party.

Knowing we had somewhere we had to be later in the day, he asked, “Are we bringing the rabbit back after?”

He had to ask three times before I stopped hearing, “Are we bringing the rabbit compactor?”

Oh, the horrible image that flashed through my mind!!!

Marshall! (Tony the Balloon Guy, a Tampa Bay area – Clermont-Riverview-Pinellas Park-Lakeland – balloon artist/twister for special event and birthday party entertainment, makes a party dad out of balloons for a party mom in Zephyrhills while Face Painter Phyllis paints faces in Orlando)

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

Today while Face Painter Phyllis was at a birthday party in Orlando, I (Tony the Balloon Guy) was doing balloon entertainment at a carnival-themed birthday party in Pasco County, Florida.

Toward the end of the party, I made a few things for the “big kids” (aka grown-ups).

“Anyone else?” I asked.

The birthday mom said we should make something for one of the other moms to take home to Marshall, but they couldn’t decide what it should be.

“How old is Marshall?” I asked.

They all laughed. “About 40.”

“Does Marshall have a favorite animal?” I asked.

“Yes,” someone said. “Marshall’s favorite animal is Marshall.”

So I offered to make Marshall out of balloons. I asked what Marshall looked like.

“Like a grown-up Opie (from The Andy Griffith Show),” Marshall’s wife said.

This is what I came up with:

Marshall’s wife fell instantly in love.

I hope Real Marshall liked Balloon Marshall, too!

Have a fun day!

Girls Love Insects (Tony the Balloon Guy, a Tampa Bay area – Crystal Springs-Wimauma-Ruskin-Clearwater – balloon artist/balloon twister for special event and birthday party entertainment, bugs the ladies)

Saturday, October 1st, 2011

These ladies had dined at Anthony’s Italian Restaurant before, but on this night, they were just picking up something to go.

But that doesn’t mean they didn’t want balloon animals, or rather, balloon bugs – a caterpillar, bumble bee, ladybug and dragonfly – from Tony the Balloon Guy.

Have a fun day!
