Why book a balloon artist through Airtasker?

Balloon artistry isn’t just for parties. You can hire a Tasker to create a unique balloon design for special milestones in your adult life, such as promotions, proposals, and pregnancies. A balloon design may convey the message even better and even look better in photos!

Top Balloon Artist related questions

Yes, this is possible. Taskers may gladly accommodate your requests if you can send them in advance. Each balloon shape or arrangement takes time to learn, so asking for a complicated balloon art might not be doable. You can also ask for a list of shapes that your Tasker can do before the party. This sets expectations properly and avoids miscommunication.

It’s best to communicate with your Tasker and ask how many types of balloon shapes and arrangements they can make. Likewise, let them know if there’s a number of balloons needed. More experienced Taskers already have a set performance and are fully equipped with backup balloons if one pops or has a hole. They can gladly add more to this if you ask beforehand.

Communicating with the balloon artist, even before hiring them, is possible through the secured messaging feature here on our platform. You can opt to send your requests or ask them for photos of previous work. If your child or the recipient of the arrangement has any special requests, be sure to inform the Tasker beforehand.

Yes, a lot of people can learn balloon art on their own. However, take note that professionals have lots of experience and practice in creating shapes and arrangements. If you are learning this for a birthday party, it might get frustrating not to get the design right away and it will also take so much of your time. It’s always best to hire a professional balloon artist for children’s parties and other occasions.

Balloons are commonly made from rubber, latex, or nylon fabric. Some balloons are made too thin when filled with air. They’re great for some decors, but they might pop when twisted and knotted. Choose one with thicker material. They can be more expensive but are safer when handling.

Balloon art would mostly last for 48 hours. Factors like the quality of the material, the amount of air inside the balloon, the complexity of the arrangement or shape, and the environment in the storage can make this shorter or longer. A big arc made of thinner latex left under the sun will pop and deflate sooner than a simple balloon art stored in your child’s room.

What do balloon artist services include?

Balloons can instantly make a celebration feel more special. It’s a good thing that getting beautiful arrangements and impressive shapes isn’t as difficult as before. Airtasker is an ideal place to look for skilled balloon artists. Here are some instances where it would be great to have balloon art:

Kiddie party entertainment

Having a balloon artist as entertainment for a child’s birthday party is a classic experience for kids. Even with technological advancements, getting a balloon dog from an artist will still be impressive. Your young guests will clap and cheer while watching a Tasker turn a piece of rubber balloon into their favourite animals. That’s a party activity that you would want to capture forever!

Event decor

Aside from performing at a birthday party, a balloon artist can also create arcs and other balloon decors. You can ask for balloon shapes and arrangements for giveaways, backdrops, table centrepieces, photo booth props, and so many more. That’s the great thing about balloons. They’re so customisable and easy to personalise. As long as you work with a professional, you can practically have a balloon twisted and bent into any design! 

Surprise gifts

This isn’t just for kids. A balloon artist can design a special arrangement for your adult loved ones to celebrate important milestones in their lives. Have a balloon bouquet made for your wife for your anniversary or have a balloon letter art spelling out "Congratulations!" set up for your friend who just graduated. Some Taskers can also handle giant balloons filled with confetti and a high-value gift inside. Don’t be surprised if the recipient will be excited to pop the balloon! Some Taskers also offer both balloon art and cakes fit for the occasion!

School activities

If you want to take learning to a whole new level, put away the flashcards and invite a Tasker to create balloon animals for a school activity. You can have the balloons delivered to the gym or classroom as a visual aid for the teacher, or a Tasker can perform during school fairs and educational activities. As another excellent activity for kids, a balloon artist can also teach them simple shapes and arrangements. 

Whatever kind of balloon art you need, Taskers can gladly make the experience more memorable, one balloon twist at a time!
