Why hire a Balloon Twister for my event

A balloon twister, dressed in a festive outfit, is captured preparing for a performance at an event. He stands behind a table filled with various colorful balloons and tools. His outfit features a purple shirt with a vibrant, diamond-patterned tie and matching suspenders, which add a lively touch to his ensemble. His pants mirror the same diamond pattern, creating a cohesive and eye-catching look. On his head, he wears a whimsical hat adorned with balloons in various shapes and colors.

We make balloon animals but can also provide so much more with our entertainment packages, balloon décor options, and entertainment choices. Let us bring a smile to your face as we engineer smiles for your guests throughout the Greater Tampa Bay area.

We want your event to be memorable, exciting, colorful, and fun so that your friends and loved ones will remember it and compliment you on such an awesome event for years to come. They will have experiences, photos, and memories. With all of that, pure joy and happiness!

We have three different types of balloon twisters for your event. We have the standard, advanced, and master balloon artist. They each vary a little in what they do, how fast they can twist, how much they can entertain, and how long they have been twisting at events. We recognize that not everyone needs the master balloon artist, but we also know that some want to make sure they are providing top of the line entertainment for their guests too. So, we have choices for any scenario.

Premier Master Balloon Artists (approximately 14+ sculptures/hour)

This entertainer can create themed characters or shapes for your guests. Our balloon artists use a complete line of the most superb balloon product, allowing them to make more detailed and intricate shapes not found with your average Tampa balloon guy.

As they have been twisting for the longest, they can handle almost any type of entertainment situation and can entertain while they do it. A master balloon artist is also great for adult events too as they are much more seasoned and capable of handling a completely older crowd.

They are often hired at birthday parties for the children and are requested to stay longer so that the adults can receive balloons too! If you are looking for wow, you’ve found it!

Advanced Balloon Artists (approximately 18+ sculptures/hour)

The Advanced artist is still very skilled and capable of making nearly any balloon shape requested. They can usually make smaller versions of princesses and smaller versions of the motorcycles, helicopters, and dinosaurs that the master balloon artist would blow people away with. This is a great middle of the road choice for those looking for a little bit of wow with a little less cost. They are still better than most entertainers in the Tampa area and you are sure to get someone to make you happy. This artist is great for nearly any event as they are equally fast and talented. They are family friendly and great when then are adults and children to entertain.

Standard Balloon Artist from Tampa (approximately 16+ sculptures/hour)

She loves making balloon animals in Tampa Festivals and events

Balloon Artists are great indoors or outdoors at any event where you want to make a visually stunning impression on those attending. This package is focused on speed and simplicity. Though the standard artist is often slower than one of the more seasoned entertainers above, they create more simple shapes and can get to more children as the event continues.

Most of their shapes are 1-3 balloons each and we say they “don’t make famous balloons” because they tend to make monkeys instead of Curious George, robots instead of R2D2, and princesses instead of Cinderella. They are best suited for entertaining children. If you have a larger number of guests you would like to reach during your event, you can have an advanced balloon artist make simpler shapes and they can get to even more party guests!
