My name is Stacey Trombley and I'm an author of novels for teens and preteens, a wife and a soon to be mother. Balloons have always played a large part of my life so it was a natural progression for me to get into balloon decorations by using my creative eye and experience with balloons to start my own business.

I grew up with balloons, and I mean that literally. My father started out as a machinist but had a love of entertaining with magic during youth events which drove him to start his own business as a magician/balloon man.
He still does magic regularly (I guarantee you'll have a fifty cent piece behind your ear 24/7 if you're around him) but he's mostly known for his amazing balloon creations. So since the age of six balloons have played a large part in my life. I still get the occational comment "Oh! You're the balloon man's daughter!"
Yes, yes I am.
He's done many things with balloons, small balloon animals for hundreds of kids at parties, elaborate balloon sculptures, balloon decorations for wedding and business grand openings (and yes, I've helped him with anything and everything). He's now stepped away from the decoration part of his business to focus on his non profit (which is pretty incredible) but since that was always my favorite part of the buis, it's what I've decided to step into.
