Far more than dogs and swords!
I focus on more advanced designs that will impress and entertain children at your event AND their parents. Combined with a sense of humor that suits the young and old alike, you're going to get far more value than a corny clown making bad puns and one-balloon animals (that all look like dogs).
Not just kid's parties! My work is fit for many other occasions:
-Company picnics, block parties, weddings, etc.
-Keep customers coming back to your restaurant or bar.
-Custom sculpture deliveries.
Please note due to potential choking hazard, I CANNOT give balloons to children under 3 years of age or any that seem likely to put the balloons in their mouth.
On time, creative, and kids were mesmerized!
James is very creative and did a great job in extremely hot weather outside keeping the kiddos entertained. Very pleased and very professional to work with.
Very creative! does great work!
We hired James for an in-office holiday event for our employees' children. James was professional and great with the children. His balloon art is fun for children and adults alike!
James Creel is the most fun guy around! He is an awesome balloon twister and has great rapport with little and big kids alike! I don't think he moved more than a few feet from the moment he arrived until he left. He was constantly surrounded by children staring at him while he created the most amazing balloons. Aside from the talent, James is an engaging individual. He has a compelling persona, a way-out look and a kind and gracious style. The kids loved him and everyone who attended agreed he was the best thing about the event! Book him for your event! You will love him!
He was fantastic and fabulous and kept the kids and adults amazed with his creative
I booked James Creel for a community Halloween party. He was great. The best balloon artist I have ever seen.
James was hired for my daughter's 1st birthday party. We had about 70 people including children. He got to work immediately without any direction moving to different parts of the room and around to different tables as needed. Every kid received at least one balloon creation and many adults wanted one too. James was very professional throughout the booking process and party. He's extremely talented and I received many inquiries about him. Our guests were so impressed! We would love to use James again in the future, and I highly recommend him to any and everyone.
We hired James for our son's first birthday party. We had a good amount of kids (of all ages) at the party and some adults too, who were very excited for all that James had to offer. James was professional, and able to manage all of the kids and adults in a fun yet orderly way. He kept the party engaged and joked around with the kids while he created pretty much anything they requested. We loved him, and if we ever need another balloon artist, James will be our go-to guy! We've already recommended him to a few of our friends.
We recently had James Creel at our fall festival. He was on time and ready to go. He made amazing balloon art that every kid enjoyed. He was a great success and will be booked for our future events.
James is fantastic!!! We are so glad that James was available to celebrate our son's 4th birthday with us. He seriously made the party. His creations are fun and fanciful. He can work wonders with balloons, and our guests loved his silliness.
James provided top-notch service at my daughter's birthday party. Kids and grown-ups alike were impressed with his balloon creations, which made a really fun atmosphere. My daughter got a head-band, a necklace, and a hello kitty corsage. I highly recommend his service!
We had very pleasant experience with James,kids loved the ballon that he made.He was in time,very friendly and professional.
We were excited about James coming to entertain at our son's 4th birthday party, and we had high expectations. He did a WONDERFUL job! His balloons were quite extraordinary, and he seemed to be able to make anything the kids threw at him. We had about 17 kids, James stayed for 90 minutes twisting balloons the entire time. We had a great time, the kids had a great time, and we got lots of compliments from the other parents. If you're looking a balloon artist, I can highly recommend James Creel.
Mr Creel did an amazing job at my 6 year olds birthday party. Not only is he extremely talented with balloon twisting, he is very entertaining. Both the kids and adults loved him.
Your money will be well spent!
James was terrific! The kids squealed in delight from the moment he arrived (exactly on time) in his catchy outfit and hair. He had about 10 kids swarming around him for 2 hours straight and continued to make the most detailed balloon designs. He even started making creations to be awarded to the first to guess what they would become. My daughter's friends' parents were duly impressed and wanted him at their parties. Energetic, punctual, professional, very skilled and terrific with the kids--I highly recommend James.
Came on time. Very polite. Made sure I was happy and satisfied with his skills and creation. The children loved all the balloons (even the adults who I didn't know they wanted them too) Stayed longer when needed. Everyone was amazed with his creations.
James made balloon sculptures at my 4-year old's birthday party. He was a huge hit: children and adults alike received clever, cute and interesting balloon sculptures. At one point a group of kids was grouped around him, squealing with glee as he worked -- what better entertainment could you have at a birthday party? James was very focused and diligent the entire time. I was very impressed! This event was a child's birthday party, but after seeing his work, I think he would also be a great asset at an adult party.
While most of the reviews here are for kid parties - we had James at our slightly non-traditional backyard wedding. He made amazing creations for both the kids in attendance as well as the adults (and there were many more adults with balloons than kids)! He had a line the whole night - people kept going back for more. Lots of fun balloon hats, octopi, mermaids, everything. He is wonderfully entertaining for both adults and children.
I was searching for a balloon twister for my daughter's 5th birthday party and Jame's portfolio draws me immediate attention. Unlike others, James's twisting combines extraordinary creativity, skills and vibrant colors and shapes. On the day of the event, James showed up earlier and made fancy twisting for all the kids and stayed overtime. We are very impressed and pleased his artwork and service.
James is outstanding! He works fast and is incredibly creative. We hired him for my three year old daughter's birthday party. He kept all 15 kids entertained and very happy. Parents were also impressed with his skills. Truly an artist. I strongly recommend him for your party.
We hired James Creel and His Ballonery for our son’s 1st birthday party and he was incredible! James’ is a true artist - his creativity is unlike any balloon twister anyone has ever come across. He left a smile on the faces of all the children (and adults).
James is super friendly, courteous, punctual and highly recommended! A must hire for any event.
We recently hired James for my daughter's 3rd birthday party. James was very responsive to my emails, and he arrived at my house a few minutes early the day of the party. My wife and I (and all of the other parents) were extremely impressed with James's work, and the kids were very happy as well. The balloons really were little works of art, and James had a wide range of balloons he could make for both girls and boys. He also made a special Hello Kitty balloon for my daughter and a Minion balloon for my son (per their request), which went over very well. Bottom line is that I would hire James again and I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends. Thanks for a great job!
Just booked James for a 3rd time because he is so great. The first was for a big birthday party and he did such a great job that the kids were totally riveted for the entire time he was there, which is a great accomplishment for 3-5 year olds. He was not stumped by any of their requests, which bordered on the traditional (fairy wands and guitars) and to the downright bizarre (drain pipes!) The special balloon he made for the birthday boy was nothing short of spectacular, he was so excited when he saw it that he fell down out of pure joy. James is very low key and low maintenance and knows just how to speak to the kids. Highly recommended.
James was professional, prompt and, most importantly, thrilled all the kids and adults. For two hours without a break, he created amazing balloon art and had everyone awed and happy. I can't recommend him enough.
Words cannot explain how gifted and talented James is. He was born to do this! I was truly amazed at his Balloon Twisting skills with such amazing detail. The children absolutely loved him and the parents want him at their next birthday event. I must be honest I though all Balloon Twisters were the same and James proved me wrong. The Minions he made the twins were EPIC and are for display only!! James you are THE MAN!!!
I've seen a many Balloon Artist....But NEVER have I witnessed the of artistry of a Balloonist as I did at my twins birthday party today in James Creel! He made lady bugs, turtles, giraffes, rainbows, hello kitty, dinosaurs, umbrellas,you name it HE MADE IT!!!! He is AWESOME!!! He created such a delightful energy the children and parents were blown AWAY! Then to top it off he made two of the most incredible Minions for Izzy & Bella so cute they are forbidden to handle!
A Job well done!

Hi there. I take balloons, blow them up, then twist, bend, and fold them into amazing shapes. Want one? People seem to think I'm pretty good.
I provide in-person balloon twist for any occasion, as well as balloon decoration, centerpieces, deliveries (Mother's Day, birthdays, Get Well Soon), and Cup-O-Grams (cups with candy and a balloon sculpture). Businesses can draw attention to their booth at trade shows or street festivals. Wherever I make my balloons, there's always a crowd.
Sometime in mid-2010, I picked up a pack of cheap balloons with a cheap pump at a CVS on a whim. I figured it'd be a nice parlor trick to know. After a few pops, I had a fantastically lop-sided dog. I went online and learned how to make some more animals. When I ran out of balloons, I ordered more. I realized I was good at it and more so, thought it was incredibly fun. Everything I know after that first dog I learned from YouTube or thought myself. Balloons rescued me from the desk job life, providing a new career that I love and never would have imagined. I'm doing something I truly love and try to never forget how lucky I am.
