Happy almost fall, friends! We hope you decide to stop in soon, as we have more local brands than ever before. We’ve also been working on growing our selection of party goods to compliment all our balloons, so we wanted to share some photos of our cute current offerings. We have Meri Meri plates & napkins, candles, party banners, little party hats, piñatas, & more. Here’s a fun little sampling, but you’ll have to stop in soon to see the rest!
We recently celebrated National Ice Cream Day with a little help from our friends at Jeni's and some awesome Charleston creatives and influencers!
Jeni's provided us with 2 boxes packed full of an assortment of their awesome flavors. We tried a BUNCH of them, and they were all super delicious!
Everyone got to pick their favorite flavor and add plenty of toppings to make very Instagram-worthy creations!
We had all ages joining in on the fun:
It was a day full of lots of picture taking and great times. We provided plenty of balloons for the occasion, of course!

Come by soon if you haven't been in yet, we can't wait to have you in for a photo in front of our balloon wall!

Valentine's Day will be here before we know it, but coming up before that is a special holiday we love just as much- Galentine's Day! We love Leslie Knope's (from Parks & Recreation) explanation of Galentine's Day: "Oh it's only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas."
If want to celebrate your gal pals on February 13, go all out with this balloon Galentine created by Cannonborough Collective co-owner The Tiny Tassel. You'll need:
This is one DIY that's super simple and pretty self-explanatory. Just download this pdf, print on card stock, cut them out along the pink border, then use your favorite washi tape to adhere your balloons.

I had my first jewelry show at my house when I was 12 years old! I incorporate my grandmother's jewelry into my pieces, and always stop in antique stores when I travel to find old jewls to incorporate into new.

I have a girl crush on Erin from Sunwoven. Her color palettes and attention to detail are gorgeous.
What's your favorite song to jam out to while you're making?
I binge watch tv shows while I'm making! In the past several months I've watched from start to finish: Friends, The Gilmore Girls, New Girl, and am working on Scandal as we speak.
Tell us about your favorite product right now and the inspiration behind it:
My favorite products are my various freshwater pearl necklaces on chain (either sterling or gold-filled). They are great for everyday but also a nice dressier piece & are available on my website.
