We had the good fortune of connecting with Elizabeth Morales-Nune and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Elizabeth, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
For years I’ve always found a passion to celebrate others and planning parties, whether it was big or small. I knew that eventually I wanted to start a party business with balloons and Party planning but just like everyone else, I didn’t know how to, so I would politely dismiss those thoughts of starting a business. The crazy thing is that God kept opening doors for me to start but I kept closing it. It wasn’t until Easter Week of 2020 that I felt God opening the door again during COVID. After being stuck at home with my thoughts and Party vision I decided to go for it. Especially during covid, I wanted to bring joy to children, families, moms, etc.

Mothers Day 2020 was when Blush Pop Balloons was Born. I was extremely excited to get started. When God opens that door for you, you better go for it because if it for you, it’s for you!

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Blush Pop Balloons is a dream come true! It provides balloon garlands, party planning and party styling. I understand that planning a party can be stressful, especially trying to find different items and vendors. That is why we offer balloons and party planning. I want your party to be stress free and full of joy!

What sets us apart is no matter what service my clients request, big or small, you will be taken care of. I truly care about my clients and if something is not right I will make it right. I put so much into my work.

Something I’m proud of is my current clients that I’ve built a relationship with and the clients that I continue to get blessed with. It’s a great feeling when some of your new clients say their friend or family referred me to you.

Was it easy?
No. There’s been sweat, and tears that occur when chasing your passion.
When I first started I didn’t have clients so I had to offer some of my services for free and ended up meeting amazing people along the way. Yes, I spent money, but I knew it would be worth it. I knew I needed to show my work and have pictures for potential clients. To add to this, starting a business and being a mom of an active toddler has been challenging as well. As many moms knows a toddler requires a lot of attention and they think everything is a toy, including balloons and decorations.

Something that I’ve learned along the way is to celebrate the Little wins in your business. You may not be where you want to be but still celebrate! Keep yourself motivated and believe in your dream and vision. Lastly, don’t give up, that challenge or issue your have can be your open door.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Wow this is a hard question because Houston is known for FOOD and we love food and being outdoors!

We would start our morning with coffee from Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee & Bakery. Afterwards, I would take them to Memorial Hermann Park to enjoy the scene , bike ride and feed the ducks and squirrels.

For lunch we would go to Sonoma Houston and enjoy the Beautiful patio scene with wine and some good pizza!
After lunch I would take them to city center to walk around and grab dessert from Fellini Gelato & Caffe.

As we make our way through the night, I would finish off with some good Margaritas and Mexican food from Ambriza Town Lake.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’m thankful and grateful for my little family. My husband has been so supportive during this new season of starting a business. He’s been so encouraging and my biggest fan and of course my little toddler, whose always testing the supplies.
Lastly, I was so blessed with Lhyntenia Smith, she is an entrepreneur. I reached out to her to give me advise to start a business and she gave me that extra push! There are so many people out there who are good and truly want you to succeed.
