Halloween Balloon Garland Class

October 26, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Create your very own 6 foot organic balloon garland for Halloween! Instructor will provide all materials.

Instructor Bio: After earning a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Washington, Shannon started out her professional career in property management with a real estate development company and worked as a victim/witness advocate for the prosecutor’s office. That career path was cut short when she met her husband, who is a Marine, and they received orders to California. While in California, Shannon earned her nail technician license, personal trainer certification and health coaching certification.

In 2016, Shannon and her family moved to Colorado Springs where she began working as a real estate agent. After working in Real Estate for 2 years, she really missed using her creative side so she tossed around the idea of starting a staging company. In the midst of all of her research on what it would take to run a staging business, she stumbled upon an instagram post of the most gorgeous balloon display she had ever seen. A couple of days later, still thinking about balloons, she was sitting on her couch and had this overwhelming feeling to go and grab her stash of balloons and just see what she could do. “It was like I had no control over my own hands and I just started creating.” Shannon began offering to do balloons for friends and local businesses that she frequented. She was officially on a roll and then the world shut down due to Covid. Unsure of how she was going to continue doing what she had grown to love, she had to start pivoting! “I started offering contact free “You’ve Been Ballooned” displays that I could install outside of people’s homes. The local news station Fox 21 did a story about Hello Sunshine Creatives and we quickly “blew up.” “With balloons, I am able to use my creativity to create gorgeous displays that bring so much joy to our clients and to us. There is nothing better than seeing the smiles on our clients’ faces when we pull up in our balloon van “Sunny” and start carrying out all of their balloons. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I’m working because I truly love what I do and it never feels like “work!”
