Why did we change our name to “Pretty Funny Balloons?”
Well, put simply, we got married! You see, when I began Brian’s Balloons back in college, it was the perfect name for what I did, but then I fell in love with a beautiful, talented balloon artist named Christina. We combined our efforts and started growing the business so we could both entertain full-time with balloons and face painting. We needed a new name to describe our venture, and “Pretty Funny Balloons” seemed perfect. If you haven’t figured it out yet, it’s because she’s pretty and I’m funny. We’ll both still offer Indiana’s premier balloon entertainment and awesome balloon décor. Plus, Christina is a skilled face painter so we’ve added that to our offerings. Christina and I, along with our awesome team of local professionals look forward to serving you for years to come.

Brian got his start ballooning when he was a freshman in college. His sister got him a kit for Christmas and he fell in love with the art form. What started as a hobby soon became a job entertaining at a local restaurant as he worked his way through college. After studying for a Master’s degree, this hobby finally became a career, freeing him up to invest his time and energy to become Indiana’s premier balloon artist.
Over the past 12 years, Brian has made balloons in 14 countries and 35 states and won awards at Twist and Shout, Florida Super Jam and the Fellowship of Christian Magicians International Convention. He was also named the APCA 2014 Novelty Act of the Year. Brian enjoys teaching others how to make balloons, and has lectured at several regional and international balloon conferences. He has published 3 DVDs and is currently planning two more as well as a book. When he isn’t traveling the country or planning huge sculptures, he enjoys relaxing with friends, playing games, landscaping and woodworking.

Christina was introduced to balloon twisting through the Fellowship of Christian Magicians conference, which is where she met Brian. She began attending with her grandfather, a magician, when she was a kid, but was never that interested in magic. As soon as her parents let her, she began attending balloon and face painting classes and eventually became skilled at both. The last few years, as Christina finished up her Early Childhood Education degree, she also invested greatly in her art form, learning new designs and developing her kid-focused style of entertainment. She also really enjoys décor, face painting and deliveries. When she’s not twisting or studying, she enjoys hanging out with friends.
From time to time, when we aren’t personally available or need more entertainers for large events, we work with a trusted network of professional entertainers from around central Indiana. We only send out quality entertainers that we know personally and who do great work. We take our reputation seriously and only want to bring you the best.
