Wonder Can Be Found In The Most Unexpected Places!

Hi, all!

Wednesday night I was at home, watching TV with Ole Hubbins when I got a weird text from my daughter. She was with her hubby at IHop to meet their gaming group as they do on most weeks. Except this time, something awesome was happening at the restaurant - the IHop was being visited by the folks from BensBalloons.

From their website. Is she not adorable?!?!

In an awesome marketing ploy, they were making balloon art of anything the kids and grownups made requests for for free!

Here's the first picture she sent me of what they were doing there:

Dr Who will be so jealous if you have one of these! Hee!

Then they got to ask for something - so they did. And even though the balloon artist had never heard of it, his buddy looked it up in the internet and this is what they did:

Showing your Cthulhu Pride!

Here are some more cool pictures of their awesome art from their website:

And even more amazing, they do a lot more than just balloons! They entertain with juggling, magic, uni-cycling, face painting, concessions, training classes and more! So very, very cool. (Now I just need an excuse for a party to hire them! Heh heh)


  1. lol - Just have a party because - celebrate the release of your book or a "re-launch" party. To me, I don't see any reason not to have a "just because" party. Maybe an end of the summer party or back to school party - there are tons of ways to go with that and those balloon things are pretty awesome. Thanks for sharing with us - E :)

  2. These are so neat. It is amazing what they can do with balloons. A party sounds like fun. The more balloons the merrier.

  3. How cool! I've only ever seen balloon poodles so that was pretty eye-opening. Wonder if they let you ship them like flowers?
