I recently sat down with owner, Meg Johnson, a fellow member of the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce, to chat about her creative business and it’s 32-year history.
Within moments of meeting Meg and her partner Eric and I was immediately impressed with their level of organization. You’d never imagine that every week, they are constructing large pillar balloon sculptures, creating dozens of centerpieces or preparing the elements for a massive balloon arch. This attention to detail quickly speaks to the type of service and quality you can expect when working with them.
Meg has always worked in the event space, originally starting out with her own catering business. Over time, clients began to ask her if she could provide some small decorating elements as well as the food for the events. Meg seized this opportunity to try something new and in 1996 she became Connecticut’s first certified balloon artist. At a time when catering businesses began saturating the market, shifting gears to decorating made sense and felt like perfect timing.
Later, with when her husband Eric was able to join the business full time, his carpentry skills naturally aided his creativity, giving him the ability to imagine possibilities and bring them to life.
As a married couple of 16 years and business partners, Meg thinks they make a good team: “I think in the box and he thinks out of the box so between the two of us, it’s a really great combination.”
One of Meg’s favorite things is showing her clients how balloons can also be elegant as well as fun. They can also be more affordable than you might think because balloons quickly transform a room adding excitement and a variety of color.
Combining her education and years of experience, Meg is able to help bridge the gap between Pinterest fantasy and budget reality, while also delivering event décor that leaves a lasting impression.
