We had the good fortune of connecting with Esmeralda M Perez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Esmeralda M, every day, we about how much execution matters, but we think ideas matter as well. How did you come up with the idea for your business?
I came up with the idea to use balloons as a medium for creativity when I became a Mom 8years ago. I realized I had a passion for creating beautiful birthday spaces for my children and the entire event planning process was super satisfying to me. If you would ask my husband he’d say I have a problem. lol But nonetheless there was a huge desire to learn and expand my knowledge in events to make their birthdays extra special every year, specifically balloon decor. There’s just something about balloons in my opinion that takes parties to the next level. I began creating for my family and friends and to my surprise, requests to do balloon-decor started flowing in through word of mouth.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’d like to say that when you hire me for your balloon decor needs, you will be receiving a beautiful end result bottom line. I put a lot of energy and passion into my balloon designs wether it be a Beautiful Full Organic Balloon Garland or one of our Balloon Bouquets. It’s all about the details for me. The planning, sketching, purchasing, fabricating, delivering and installing process is fun and can be challenging, but nothing beats the beautiful final end result for me. It truly is satisfying. I am very proud of where we are in our business and super excited to keep growing and expanding my services to meet my clients needs. Bringing their vision to life is the goal.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Houston has amazing places to visit and a huge variety of restaurants to try. I’d start at brunch at Cucharas then take a walk around Buffalo bayou park or Discovery Green. I’d for sure go to the Houston Museum District or The Johnson Space center and Dinner at the Kemah Boardwalk.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Im so blessed to say that my family and friends have 100% encouraged me to pursue my balloon decor business. I’m honestly surrounded my amazing humans. We have had so many wonderful conversations about our interests and dreams and their feedback has truly been inspiring and therefore, I’d like to dedicate this shoutout to them.
