How to Pick Which Balloon Animal to Create for an Event

Learn how to pick which balloon animals to create for specific events from magician Jonas Cain in this Howcast video.


Hi, I'm Jonas Cain and I'm here at the Veritas Theatre at the beautiful Elms College in Chicopee, Massachusetts. I am a magician and a balloon sculptor having performed and provided entertainment solutions for many, many years. Visit my website at And today I'm going to be talking about making balloon animals. A safe bet is the flower. The balloon flower is a great way to win over the heart. You can make a whole bouquet of flowers, you can make a whole bunch of them and put them together. So that is definitely a great one to do. Another thing to do is, also, just like the kids' parties, you don't what personal interests are. Maybe they really like horses? You know, so a good thing is to get interacting with them, find out what they really like. Maybe even before the party you could find out what they're really into. And even if you don't know how to make that balloon, like, maybe someone really likes princesses, you can learn how to make a crown and like a princess wand. Or, you can learn how to make a balloon that looks like a queen or something. So a good thing to do is to find out beforehand what they like, what they're into. Do a little research and practice, and you can show up and really wow them. A good way to find work making balloon sculptures at bachelorette parties: you can go to bridle expos, pass out your cards, flyers at these places. Another way is to actually get a booth at a bridal expo. That's a great way to not only get making balloon sculptures at bachelorette parties, but even at weddings in general. At the receptions, a lot of times they have kids, they want to keep them entertained. So those are great ways to find work in that field.
