We are a unique balloon boutique specializing in "deco-twisting". This type of balloon artistry combines twisted balloons with classic balloon decor. Our unique style of balloons allows us to create memorable and special balloons that fit your event's theme and needs.
The owners, Elizabeth Peterson and Robbie Furman, have been working with balloons for many years. Robbie started in 1990 and Elizabeth in 2009. They both have created original designs and techniques that have become the mainstay of balloon decorators and artists all across the world.
Prior to opening Happiness is a Balloon, Elizabeth owned and operated an entertainment company for over 12 years, Tip Top Entertainers!
She is a skilled balloon twister, a talented face painter, a henna artist, as well as a glitter and airbrush tattoo artist!
Robbie's start in the balloon world came from teaching himself balloons and using them for charity during his time serving in the Domestic Peace Corps (Americorps). In 2002, he opened a store in New Jersey decorating for 1000's of clients throughout New Jersey and New York. Some of his balloons have been seen on ABC's All My Children, One Life to Live, Live with Regis and Kelly, The View, Ugly Betty, Sesame Street, and Good Morning America. Balloons have also taken Robbie around the world teaching his techniques and designs in over 25 countries on 5 continents..
