Testimonials 

Hello Rick,

Sharlene and I did not want to let another day pass without expressing our appreciation for all the work you did to help Bryn celebrate "Under the Big Top". Though we know we took you down a different, helium free path, you really delivered the effect we were looking for. With all of our conversations and meetings, you were patient as we worked down the creative path together. Our desire to create an elegant, non-campy circus feeling was met head on. Nancy's creative talents really paid off as well. The place card table and welcome sign were more than we expected.

Thanks again for a lovely job. As soon as we get some of the photos back, we will make sure to share them so you can see how it all came together with lighting and people.

Best regards,

Gregg & Sharlene Caren

Thank you so much.  Everything was gorgeous!!!!  We couldn’t have been happier.   

A friend of mine, Audrey Younger, who attended the bat mitzvah is planning her boys bnai mitzvah and she loved the centerpieces.  I’m sure she will be calling you soon!

Thanks again!

 

Rick,
Pleased is not the half of it! I'm planning on writing a 5 star yelp review for the kind and accommodating customer service and top-notch décor we received!
Appreciate your helping us at the last minute, and doing a great job at that! We'll think of you for our next event (and definitely plan ahead :)
Take care!

Hey Rick,
 Excellent customer service! Thanks for checking in to see if we were happy. Absolutely. Everyone raved about the balloons and the perfect touch that they added. I really appreciate you taking care of us at the last minute. I will certainly keep Balloon Celebrations in mind for future events.

Hey Rick

 You guys did an AMAZING job everyone loved the arch but even more were the pom-poms - I must have already sent your name and contact information to 3 people asking about the pom-poms! 

I think the funniest part was at the end of our tailgate we decided to hold on to the arch and put it into the foyer of one of our buildings - thinking it would be safe over night since the kids were not on campus this weekend (it was fall break) and then we could re-use the arch at the one event on Sunday 

Well I got to campus on Sunday morning around 8am and the arch was gone (after our reunion parties we encouraged all our attendees to go to the local restaurant/bar to continue their night of partying -- the restaurant/bar is located right across from the building that arch was in)  The only thing I could think that might have happened is that a few our alumni decided to take the arch . . . . I just wish we had camera that would of caught a picture of people trying to walk down city ave with this huge arch of balloons it must have been hysterical! 

Thanks again and you will be hearing from me in the future!!

Rick,
We were simply stunned at how nice the room looked when we walked in! You did a great job the center pieces they came out great and we loved the balloon arch and the sign in board as well. The little lights on it added a nice touch! Hope you took some pictures of your work at the mansion so you can put it on your web site!
Thanks Agian,

Rick customized decorations for our son's bar mitzvah this past October, and we were wowed by his work! Not only we were impressed, but so were our guests, and the owners of the catering hall who took pictures of the set-up so they could share ideas with their future customers. When we entered each room, Rick's work was the focal point, and he really was on target, keeping to the whole event's theme.

Keeping to the "chef" theme, he created 11 different table centerpieces, 5 signs for the food stations, decorations for the cocktail room and a giant balloon arch to the ballroom entrance (which included giant forks with spaghetti-style balloons jetting out). Each table centerpiece made of foam board was on a stand approximately 4 feet high, with large individualized large pictures to match the cooking theme. The food station signs had a sturdy wood base and steel pole (covered with balloons and ribbons to match the event colors) to support the giant food station signs, detailing the food served.

Rick was very flexible and accommodating in scheduling time to discuss event planning, and paid attention to the details of what we were looking for. He took our vision of what we wanted, and made it even better! He worked well with the catering hall, having everything delivered timely and placed in the correct spot.

This was actually the second bar mitzvah that we worked with Rick on. Three years ago he provided table centerpieces for our older son's "baseball" theme party, which was also a very professional presentation. We did not hesitate in engaging him again, but he really stepped it up a notch at this event!

We would certainly use Balloon Celebrations again for future events!

Balloon Celebrations is the absolute BEST OF THE BEST in the Tri-State area. I am a celebrity Event Planner whose jobs span from LA to Baltimore with a heavy concentration in the NY/NJ/Philly areas. I have been using Balloon Celebrations, solely, for almost 20 years. Rick, the owner, is incredibly dependable (my reputation rests on him so he'd better be!) He and his team are EXTREMELY creative, innovative, far in front of the curve, and very fairly and competitively priced. They work within your budget to get you the biggest bang for your buck. They can see the whole picture when sometimes it's just too overwhelming for you. Their years of diverse experience in the business enable them to do that. Their design team blows their competitors out of the water. Fun, colorful, imaginative! Balloon Celebrations will work closely with you through every single detail beforehand, so that when set up time comes around, you can rest easy that EXACTLY what you imagined will come to fruition! No surprises, no worries. Relax, Rick's got it! And you will be blown away with the final product, guaranteed, like I have been over and over again throughout the years! I use this company for my personal parties as well as my business events, which is quite a testament as to the quality operation that they are. Being in the event industry, people expect my personal parties to be "perfect" and Rick has NEVER EVER disappointed. He makes me look good by consistently delivering.
On a personal note, working with Rick over many years, I can tell you he is a really good, honest, down to earth, caring man who is invested in making your event look spectacular. Do not hesitate to use Balloon Celebrations. I cannot recommend them highly enough! A++++
ONE OF A KIND CARE AND CUSTOMER SERVICE...WAY BEYOND EXPECTACTIONS!

Rick is one of the nicest people to work with. He understood exactly what I wanted and worked with our budget. Amazing work!

Thank You for the opportunity Danielle. It was my pleasure to work for you.

Rick,
I just wanted to reach out and thank you and your staff for doing such a wonderful job with the centerpieces, right down to the delivery.
I was beyond pleased and the centerpieces were the talk of the party. The cube was so much more than I expected in size and just beautifully done.

Although I reached out to you only a short while before our event, you were nothing but responsive and helpful.

I really hope to be able to use your company again in the future and I will be recommending you to family and friends.

I can’t thank you enough!!

Sincerely,
Tracy Henry

Rick and his team did a fantastic job decorating for our son's bar mitzvah on very short notice (like 10 days pre-party!) after another provider flaked on me. His suggestions were excellent and added so much to the party decor - and matched our colors perfectly. Conscientious, easy to work with, and did exactly what they promised. Thanks so much!

Rick and his staff were a delight to work with. Nothing we asked was too much of him. From our very first meeting Rick understood our theme and concept entirely and easily put together everything we asked of him. He has a very calm manner which was exactly what we needed as we were completely overwhelmed planning our event. In the end Rick created an amazing Broadway themed Bat Mitzvah for us! We were completely thrilled with the decorations including centerpieces, Balloon Arch, light up sign with our daughters picture. All was perfect! We would definitely recommend using Balloon Celebrations for your next event or party!

This is my first review of anything or any company ever. Rick and his staff delivered nothing but excellence in every capacity for my husband's surprise 40th birthday!! Rick sat with me in our first meeting for about an hour, he was legitimately interested in every detail that mattered to me, he made himself available at all times and he and his staff maintained their professionalism in every contact we had right up until the day of the party!!! Rick's recommendations for centerpieces with pictures of my husband, balloon arches and the seating chart were all spot on and made the room look fabulous!! I could not ask for more and my guests were gushing over the decorations!! It wasn't just working with a business concerned about it's payday; it was working with people...friendly, caring people. This is exactly what you need when you are in a full blown panic over a 125-guests surprise party for your husband that you are planning alone...lol!! I'm so glad I went with them!!
