Want to up your party game? Community News is reporting that there’s a new balloon business in Mercer County that you should definitely check out.
It’s called Balloons with a Flair and is located in the former Graycar Travel building on Nottingham Way, in the heart of Hamilton Square.
I saw the sign turning onto Nottingham Way from Whitehorse Hamilton Square Road…it’s right in front of you, you can’t miss it.
The owner is local, Jerry Deblasio Jr. He’s worked as a bartender and server in the area since he was a teenager (he’s 33 now). When the pandemic hit in 2020, he knew he needed a new life plan… and after a quick Facebook post, his balloon business was born.
Let’s go back for a minute. Jerry loved to decorate with balloons. He always designed large balloons at family parties and other social occasions. His family and friends loved his designs and always told him he should start a balloon business. He always made fun of them, the article says.
During the pandemic, when he was out of a job in the restaurant business, Jerry decided to post on Facebook that he was considering starting a balloon decorating business. A few hours later, it received over 200 comments from people who wanted to book it. Wow.
Deblasio ran the business from his home in Hamilton until recently, but his success led him to find a display case for more space to fill his many orders and allow customers to see samples of his balloon art.
Keep Jerry in mind for your next party or special occasion. It will work with you regardless of your budget.
It doesn’t use helium, by the way. All of his balloon creations are filled with air. He said in the article that helium is expensive and the balloons don’t last as long as those filled with air.
