PSA: Balloon Saloon

Sometimes I think there’s a place you’ve just got to know about and my Public Service Announcements (PSAs) will give you the full skinny.


Balloon Saloon is basically a mashup of Party City and Economy Candy.  They’ve got all the balloons you would ever want from a party store – in fact, they’ve got way more.  For $125, for instance, you could get a huge mylar muscle man themed balloon bouquet that comes with a giant balloon mustache, an inflatable dumbbell, and several strong man balloons.  If you can imagine a balloon version of something, they’ve probably got it.

While balloons are their bread and butter, this is also a great spot to find old school toys and games.  There was a whole section of fake poop, I spied some great [dusty] old board games, children’s books, and lots of party hats.

We popped into the store to pick up things for an office baby shower.  Other than balloons, they only have a little of everything so you have to get creative.  Outside of one banner, they didn’t have a ton of baby-centric party items, so we improvised and spread a bunch of children’s books (they have a surprisingly robust section) along the table as functional decoration.  Though there’s not a ton of any one thing, this is still THE party spot.
