Balloons With a Twist, the premier full-service entertainment and party planning company in the Las Vegas Valley for both small and large-scale events, has launched new services and products for hosting social distancing parties and special events. In celebration, they are honoring deserving individuals throughout the community with a special “Party to Your Door” social media contest beginning Monday, June 22.
Due to the pandemic, Balloons With a Twist has added creative services to their offerings including custom balloon arches, car décor, lawn displays, Air Hug balloons and specialty balloon bouquets. Air Hug balloons were created as a way to express love and bring cheer to people while practicing safe social distancing. The company also implemented new policies and procedures to ensure the safety of their employees and clientele including contactless deliveries, social distancing for employees and customers, and increased sanitization. Additional services now available include décor for celebration parades, balloon artists, caricature artists, magicians, princesses, stilt walkers, jugglers, mimes, photographers, photo booth rentals and DJs.
“Amid the pandemic, people are stuck inside celebrating important achievements and life milestones, so we knew we had to come up with new ways to put a smile on people’s faces,” said Michele Rothstein, CEO and founder of Balloons With a Twist. “Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, retirement, Father’s Day or just your average Friday, we can create safe, custom décor to fit your needs,” she continued.
To honor the Southern Nevada community, Balloons With a Twist is launching a “Party to Your Door” social media contest in which people can nominate deserving locals throughout Las Vegas and Southern Nevada to receive a surprise package containing everything they need for a socially distanced party at their home. The package will contain bags of fresh gourmet popcorn from Popcorn Girl Las Vegas, flowers from Flora Couture, cupcakes from Rolling in Dough Bakery, pizza from Grimaldi’s Pizzeria and frozen banana pops from Lea Lana’s Bananas.
Celebrate a healthcare hero, essential worker, frontline worker, graduate, teacher, or anyone who would appreciate a special surprise by nominating them on Balloons With A Twist’s social media channels – Facebook or Instagram. To make a nomination, follow @balloonswithatwist and all vendors involved, share the contest post from Balloons With A Twist to a story or feed and tag them, and nominate someone deserving in the comments and tell them why they deserve a “Party To Your Door.” One winner will be chosen weekly beginning Monday, June 22 with winners receiving a prize package valued at $275. The contest will end on Friday, July 31.
During the duration of the contest, Balloon’s With a Twist will be donating 50 percent of proceeds from Air Hug balloons to Serving Our Kids Foundation, an organization dedicated to feeding and serving the needs of children in Clark County.
Rothstein is an active member of the Las Vegas community who supports several local nonprofits and organizations, including Here for Good LV, a newly launched t-shirt fundraising campaign benefiting small businesses and charities throughout the valley who are struggling during the current economic crisis. With each t-shirt purchase, the organization sends ten dollars to a small business or nonprofit of choice.
