After day to prepare for the class and clearing out the space.

All the hard work paid off.
The class was all day but still everyone had a great time. The students learn many new things and had hands on practice in the class.
It’s it Valentine’s day already? It sure feels like it after doing this booth for Aerial Bouquet.
The HEB grocery store chains were having their annual trade show the George Brown convention center in Houston.
After many weeks of phones calls and planning, I designed a booth shapes that was 30 x30. That was supposed to look like this.
Well I had my suspicion about a trade show booth that was 30 x 30. I asked over and over to everyone that was in change “are you sure this is not an island booth?”
Well, surprise, surprise, surprise!!! When we got there guess what we found? That’s right a 30 x 30 Island not only was it an island it was first booth you saw when you entered! It was a great location and everyone would see it first think when they entered the show, BUT….. hello….. There was no way I could put a 30 x 10 solid balloon wall up. It would totally block the sight-line of all the other booths.
So after weeks of planning and 2 day of prepping we were back at square one!
I had spent 2 days assembling all the balloons. Taping balloon panels together to make the wall and cable tying and the curve balloons for the overlay. So now I had to think fast and make it work with the products we had.
After a few conversions with the show manager on what I could and could not do, I had Plan B. That idea soon morphed into plan C. We decided on making giant 3d columns to put in the back of each corner. This would give us the visual impact we were looking for without blocking all the other venders. We could also new use the new I “heart” U foil balloon on the top.
We also made short and tall pedestals out of silver panels.
Check out the new Valentines Day foil designs.
Melissa Vinson MelRhea Balloon Creations brings home the Gold and Silver from this year’s Twist & Shout Balloon Convention.Wins big at Twist & Shout
My “Sweet Melissa” that is what I love to call her. There is one other thing that I love about Melissa. I Love to IKEA her!!!! Now get your minds out of the gutters when I say “ I love to IKEA Melissa” It is nothing naughty or nasty, for me it is the highest complement I can give to any designer.
So I need to explain while I have your attention. I love the store IKEA. The way they use color and space, their clean designs and my favorite thing is the way they take ideas that are already exist in the market and make them their own. Some may call it copying or knocking-off but I think IKEA is brilliant for not trying to reinvent the wheel. They just find one they like and make it their own.
Melissa Vinson is my favorite balloon artist to IKEA. The reason why is always the same. Her designs are clean, cool and oh so clever. Something I can look at and immediately connect to and understand. The most important thing for me is I can reproduce it (IKEA).
I should say, almost always able to reproduce. When Melissa goes into competition mode it’s a whole new game. I have watched her work under pressure with crazy conditions and never give up until she is happy with the piece she is creating. She is always learning new techniques searching out new skills.
That is why this year at Twist & Shout. She won 3 times!
