Deck the halls...with balloons!

The Christmas season is upon us! What better way to spread holiday cheer but with festive balloon decor from MelRhea Balloon Creations! We recently did just that for Kentucky Oaks Mall's Grand Reopening Celebration. Classic decor graced the stage where the ribbon cutting and entertainment was held. We also did some fun and festive pink zebra print arrangements for the celebrity appearance stage that coordinated with feather decor by Occasions Unlimited. Big, beautiful balloons surrounded CeCe (Bella Thorne) from Disney's Shake It Up while she signed autographs for her eager fans.

Call us at 270-493-1197 and we will make your holiday event unique and spectacular!

MelRhea Balloon Creations's very first blog entry...

Hello everyone! Welcome to the brand spanking new blogspot for MelRhea Balloon Creations! Thanks to the encouragement of my good friend and balloon colleage Joette Giardina, CBA (see her blog at, we've started this blog to tell people a little bit about what we do, where we go, and to show everyone what professional balloon decor can do for your next event! We are in our 11th year of creating magical atmospheres and lasting memories for Paducah, all of Western Kentucky, Southern Illinois, Northwest Tennessee and Southeast Missouri areas. We have also traveled across the United States to win numerous competitions and create fabulous balloon art with some of the industry's top leaders. Add to that some international projects in China and Israel, and you have a highly experienced, creative force ready to transform your corporate, nonprofit, prom, wedding, birthday, or any other special event into a festive party or elegant gala.

For those of you who are current or previous clients, we extend our profound thanks to you and appreciate your support of unique balloon decor and deliveries! For those of you just browsing or considering the possibilities of balloons, we hope you will get inspiration and stand in amazement of what a simple piece of latex can do. Stay tuned for updates in the days, weeks and months to come!
