Sheryl - "Miss Ballooniful" in a balloon car

About Us

We have been in the balloon twisting and face painting business since 2001 —

first as Balloonamations (a sole proprietorship), and since then as All Things Balloon, Inc since 2012.

Over that time, we have attended many balloon conventions, learned concepts and techniques from hundreds of balloon training DVD’s and PDF’s, and have participated in “balloon jams” with some of the industry’s most awesome Balloon Artists and most prolific Balloon Decorators. Our current designs come from a variety of sources, and a few of them were  actually created by us!

Sheryl Meade started Balloonamations in early 2001, focusing on table side balloon entertainment in numerous local restaurants. Soon she was performing at kid’s birthday parties and bunches of business/corporate events. Along the way, Sheryl also partnered with a number of fantastic face painters to offer a more complete entertainment package for kid’s birthday parties and other local events.

Ernie Shown, a 17-year USAF veteran, married Sheryl in 2003, and started on his path to become the absolute best balloon artist in San Antonio, TX.  (Click here to see an interview conducted by San Antonio Magazine). We also appeared on KSAT 12’s SA Live TV show a couple of times…click this link to see one of our appearances “SA Live TV spot“!

Birthday parties are a special time to celebrate the life of our most valued possessions: our kids! And what better way to celebrate their exuberant life than at a dynamite party venue? We have curated an eclectic list of LA’s top kids’ birthday party venues, from robots to wizards we have chosen the best and rounded them all up here for you.
