Its been quite a week here in balloon land. The balloon crew got to work at 3:00am last Saturday to decorate the Campus of Howard University. This was the traditional “Welcome” to the incoming Freshmen and “Welcome Back” to the returning students who live in the dorms. This is the first year that every dorm received balloons. We also put up arches along Georgia avenue and in front of the dorms. We even made a “WELCOME BACK” arch in front of the Macklin Towers, two sky-scraper sized buildings. You can see this arch at www.ballroomballoons.com/gallery.html. Its in category number 19.
Monday, we were off to Montgomery College in Rockville for their first day of school. There we arrived at a slightly more reasonable 7:00am to decorate some of the campus buildings and the grounds with bouquets of balloons. Thank goodness we got off to an early start because a regular Client called for balloons for the same day which we quickly took care of; and, then we got a very big request: A production company in town from Arizona wanted us to travel almost all the way to Ocean City to set up a couple of balloon drops!
With the talented help from Ed and Steve of Nash Balloons, (www.nashballoons.com) we were able to inflate over 1000 balloons, put them in nets, and rig them to the 22-foot high ceiling. It was an awesome set with a pirate theme, full of ships and buried treasure, and even giant sails. The balloon drops were set up for the finale of the show. Everything went well; and, I didn’t even hit any traffic during my six hours on the road…..If only I could have spared a day or two and continued on just a few more miles to the beach!
