HOw to choose a balloon artist

Here are some great tips on how to choose a balloon twister for your event. 

How to choose a balloon Artist

When booking any performer, you want to consider the method of agreement.  A professional balloon artist will use a contract and possibly require a deposit.  He or she will arrive to your event early to get set up, and start at the agreed-upon time. 

It’s wise to choose a balloon artist with a website that shows his or her work.  It may also be in your best interest to speak with references.  Circus Kaput has numerous pictures of our balloons on our website, and we provide testimonial videos.   

Space Requirements
Most balloon twisters bring at least two pieces of equipment – an organized bag of professional quality balloons, and a pump or multiple pumps.  They will need table space or a chair to set down their equipment.  The artist will need room to blow up long balloons and work with them.  Traditionally a ten foot by ten foot area is sufficient.  The place where the balloon artist will stand or sit should not be a walkway where people are moving through.  They should not be placed so they will be blocking a food table or trash can.  Balloon twisting will be more successful if the artist has enough room to entertain and amaze without being in the way of other activities.

Managing the Line
Consider the number of guests you will have at your event.  Will a line form for balloons?  If so, please plan to have enough room for people to get in line and watch the balloon twister work.  If you have a large number of guests, you may want to have a second or third balloon artist at the event.  If a line does form, and it’s mostly children, it may be beneficial to have an adult guide the cueing.  

Balloons for Adults
Everyone knows children love balloon sculptures, but you may be surprised to hear balloons are great fun for grown ups too.  Circus Kaput does several fun, sophisticated hats and “wands” for adults at parties.  Receiving a balloon and walking around with it is an amazing ice-breaker.  It lightens the mood and adds to the celebratory atmosphere.  Ask us for a reference who will tell you how balloon twisting went at an event with mostly adults.  Imagine your guests walking around with cool balloon hats with feathers or a colorful twisted balloon wand with a heart at the top!  You will be congratulated by everyone for your brilliant unique party idea.
