Preparing for Valentine's Day can be very challenging. Flowers have to be ordered over a month in advance to secure availability. We order the top quality long-stem roses and plan to have floral bouquets that feature not only roses, but also, lilies, daises (my favorite), carnations, delistars, alstromeria, snapdragons, cremones, spider mums...well you get the picture.
We found some awesome vases that are so diva, I know we will sell out of them.
The balloon sculptures are always so fun planning and putting together new ideas. The ballowers and loodles are super popular every year. And the lifesize balloon men fly out the door as quickly as we can create them!
This year we are adding some fun balloon animals - everyone has their favorite and this little guy who just says, "I moustache you to be my Valentine!" Reserve this one early!
The balloon animals will be a fun addition. We will have horses, monkeys, tigers, zebras, giraffes, and pigs. They will all be WILD about you!
Our gourmet chocolates have always exceeded the floral and balloon sales, so we may have saved the best for last. This is the first year we will have our over-sized truffles. These are amazing - big enough to share but so good, who wants to? So don't forget in addition to Jelly Bellys, popcorn, and cookies, we have the most amazing hand-dipped chocolates in Louisville. Pick your favorites to create the perfect assortment for your sweeties.
There you have it...flowers, balloons and candy - we gotcha covered this Valentines Day! We are already taking orders for delivery in the Louisville and Southern Indiana areas. Candy can be shipped anywhere in the US! 502-583-4933 Happy Valentines Day!

What fun we had decorating the Hard Rock at Fourth Street Live for the annual Pinktober celebration! Since it is always a packed house, we did lots of air-filled sculptures suspended from the ceiling to save precious floor space. One piece was a chandelier complete with white and, of course, pink lights. Things turned out beautiful! Check it out...
Add a balloon drop and a few balloon columns - (save the boobie trees) and the Hard Rock was looking Pretty In Pink!
In sound check, the bands sounded awesome! I am certain it was a rocking night! On to the Belle Birthday decor for Sunday - pirate theme! Thanks for reading! Mimi[ read more ]

We recently partook in Louisville's kids' fair for the first time and had so much fun. We decided that our booth should be farm themed and it was a great success. Our arch represented a barn and had a cute little baby pig sticking out of it.
We started off having kids help us make mini balloon towers that they got to take home with them but our line never seemed to end. They got to pick out 8 small balloons and we helped them pump them up with small hand pumps. Then formed quads and attached their choice of foil balloon or smiley face to the top. A lot of kids just wanted to blow up a few balloons, and I mean who wouldn't want to? It is fun! We do it every day at Ah, Whatta'Bout Mimi (http://www.whattaboutmimi.com). Our mini towers make the perfect centerpiece for a table or display so if you want one just let us know. Our scarecrow man was a HUGE success (pun intended) and kids loved having their picture taken with him and going in between his legs. He watched over our little cow and pig balloon sculptures, little farmer boy, and display table. We modeled him after our giant Frankenstein we did for a Halloween ball, which you can see in a previous post.
We had so much fun walking around with our "My Own Pets" and letting the kids pet them and play with them. They were a huge success. Every kid wanted their own pet to follow them around. They also added a lot more animals to our farm. Getting people into our booth was simple. We had the eye catching balloons which were perfect for parents and grandparents to use as backdrops for their kids pictures. We handed out flyers with our information and hopefully will be getting to do more themed birthday parties! These are always so much fun and give us the opportunity to grow creatively with our design skills and conquer any challenge.
There was so much to see and do at the Kids' Fair and most of the people were really awesome! We love getting to interact and meet new people. Plus one of our main motto is "Recognizing people" making them feel better and more simply put "making lives better by brightening them".
If you like what you see, and want something similar to it for your next party just give us a call at 502-583-4933 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out our website www.whattaboutmimi.com[ read more ]
Here at Ah, Whatta'bout Mimi, we rise to the occasion all the time. This week we were given the challenge to create an 8 foot tidal wave with balloons. This was an interesting challenge and our master balloon artists figured it all out. Now our store looks like Sea World!
So this post is going to be about all the sea creatures we can create for your next event. As you can see above, we created little fishes that are swimming in the wave. These little guys can be any color and we love the challenge of trying to create them to look like different kinds of fish, as we know there are "many fish in the sea".
We also created an octopus for the top of our tidal wave. This guy can be in a few different colors. Making the squiggles for his legs can be lots of fun, because we get to wrap poles to create the curled look with the balloons. It's always a challenge to get the air to go into the balloons like this, but once you get it going it is a breeze.
We pride ourselves in having a wide variety of foil balloons and with sea creatures there are no exceptions. We have everything from whales and sea horses, to crabs, fishes, and turtles. We added a crab to this tidal wave to give it a finished look. Plus everyone knows that there is lots of fun "under the sea". This little guy is cute and can even be the topper for any kind of balloon column or the wave itself.
The actual set up of the event included a lot of balloon bouquets with beach balls on top of 3 color balloons, all filled with helium. This kind of gave it a different beach feeling, but still added to the Under the Sea theme.
The whole wave looked really cool, and guests pictures were taken as they entered the party. In this way, the tidal wave served two purposes. First it was decor for the room, bringing the theme together. AND it doubled as a photo booth for guests to have a keepsake of the event and their time there. As you can see here, Jim went surfing on the wave. The waves were over 8 feet tall and when they went over they were probably closer to 10 feet. It was a really cool adventure to get to create this balloon tidal wave. And we want you to give us our next challenge! So bring your event to us, and let us create your themed decor out of balloons. Your guests will be awed and jealous!
