QUINCY (WBZNewsRadio) – When her daughter had a baby shower in 2020, Briuna Shoulders stepped in to help make the party festive with a display of balloons and soon’Balloons by Bre‘ was born.
At first, she didn’t charge for her services, but her family and friends convinced her to turn her hobby into a business. Now this business is booming.
Shoulders is now known as “The Balloon Girl of the South Shore” and has provided the backdrop for everything from funerals to corporate events, fundraisers and birthday parties.
“I love what I do, I love it. I love making people happy,” she told WBZ’s Kim Tunnicliffe.
When Shoulders launched her business during the height of the lockdown phase of the pandemic, she adapted the business to offer curbside balloon decorations.
“I would inflate the balloons, I would make 5ft long garlands, I would give them what they needed to hang the garlands. They would create their own setup,” she said.
Balloons By Bre offers everything from balloon decorations and garlands, flower arrangements, stuffed balloon bouquets, letter balloons, balloon walls and even balloon column arches.
