I have different customs to choose from and really love what I do. I can twist the simple to the detailed. Along with twisting balloons I can also be a storyteller using balloons as the props, such as the 3 little pigs. Each event that I do starts with learning your theme, this gives me a base for making balloons that has to do with your theme and so that I can also bring a detailed balloon for the guest of honor. If for a larger event that is serving dinner, then I can make detailed hats for the waiters to add to the event. Along with any decor that is needed.
She was amazing! Everyone loved her talent, if I have another party. I will book again. Thank You! Highly recommended!!
Response from Korkie Balloons:
Thank you so much! I had such a great time at your party.
Every year, I organise a carnival to begin the children's summer reading club at my library. The carnival lasts for 2 hours and we often see 500 children and adults.
This year, at very short notice, Korkie joined the performer roster as a balloon artist. I had tried to contact and hire balloon artists for our carnival in the past without success and was encouraged by her prompt response to my inquiry on Gig Salad. Her rates were extremely reasonable for the volume of foot traffic we expected at our carnival and she was willing to work with us on designs specs for her creations, thus ensuring that all the kids would be able to get their own balloon creation. I can't stress how important both these factors are to me - many performers provided quotes with time limits, balloon limits or even a limit of how many people they could see in an hour. Korkie, however, is a consummate professional and her dedication both to the kids and the client is amazing.
On the date of the carnival, the weather got the better of our library and we had to move what is usually an outdoor affair indoors. It also happened to be the most well-attended carnival since I became youth services manager, so our little library was packed with over 600 carnival-goers and other patrons. Korkie was unphased - she adjusted to the changes with aplomb and grace. The kids loved her - each was greeted with a huge smile and kind words. Moreover, Korkie treated them with great respect and patience - she created instant rapport with a variety of ages and dispositions. A rare talent indeed!
Korkie made sure that every child got a balloon creation before the end of the carnival and each was very well-executed - her range and technical proficiency are top-notch.
If you need a balloon artist who can work with a crowd of 30 or a crowd of 600, who will treat your guests as welcome friends and who has the mien and talent to do all this expertly, you must hire Korkie.
Korkie Balloons is so talented and creative!! Book her for your next party or other event. Everyone will be so glad you did. Her creations are one of a kind.
Korkie was a great addition to our son's 3rd birthday party. Everyone, including the adults, had a great time watching her twist and the balloons made great party favors! Thank you Korkie for being a part of our celebration!
The kids loved it. I was very appreciative that you were so patient with the kids and you were able to make any thing they requested. Even the adults enjoyed the balloons and I loved the way you were dressed. Will definitely be doing this for my other granddaughters party.
Korkie Balloons was fun for for everyone at my party. My son loved all his balloons!
Very professional. Great with the kids and parents, they loved her. Cute costume. She did awesome work. We would absolutely recommend her and use her again. Thanks Kourtnie!
We had a WONDERFUL experience with Korkie Balloons. Kourtnie arrived on time and dressed in a fun circus/clown themed costume. She was an instant hit with the children. This was my son's first birthday and she was the highlight of the party. Every child received a balloon sword, hat, animal. She even made a balloon goldfish and fishing rod and hello kitty. Thank you Kourtnie for being so professional and patient with all the kids' requests! We would definitely recommend her for your event and would contract her services again in the future!
Korke arrived on time, worked very hard for 1-1/2 hours making balloon animals and had a smile on her face from beginning to end. She even stayed a few extra minutes to make sure all the kids got a balloon. She was very professional when communicating before the event, very prompt and nice. I would hire her again for sure for any upcoming party!
We hired Korkie Balloons for my daughter's 6th birthday. Kourtnie was a huge hit. I thought the kids were going to trample her when she first arrived but she calmly and happily began twisting balloons to their utter delight. She arrived on time and dressed in very cute and appropriate party attire. I would highly recommend her for your next event. We will definately be using her again.
Kourtnie did a great job at my daughter's 6th birthday party! The theme was "Hello Kitty" and Kourtnie even made a "Hello Kitty" balloon animal!! It was awesome. Kourtnie has the patience of a saint. I cannot thank her enough. I would definitely hire her again! ~Joy

What to Expect
I'm very friendly and love to talk, as I twist I will tell a story or ask the one i'm twisting for different questions about the balloon i'm making for them. I also explain how I am twisting the balloon. A lot of balloon parties for 1st grade and up i'll teach them how to make a dog or another balloon and so its not just me twisting but also the kids.
I twist balloons for all kinds of events, mostly wearing professional attire or as a human clown. I can also dress in over 25 different costumes. I am currently working on other outfits so if you have a suggestion or want, I am willing to find an outfit that matches your event. I have been twisting since May 2010 and love every min of it. I just moved back to TX and can twisting balloons in Cleburne and surrounding areas. I have worked with Birthday Parties, Town Festivals, Pageants, Church Events, Country Clubs, City Events, Daycare's, CiCi's Pizza, School Events, Pizza Inn, Corporate Christmas Parties, First Communion after parties, and more.
I have other costumes as well so please ask
