I have been creating balloon animals for over 14 years, after learning the craft during a 5 year stint back in college as a professional magician's assistant. Year's later I continue working to bring an extra spark of fun and creativity to every event I attend. Having worked hundreds of events, I am a seasoned professional with a wealth of experience connecting with guests of all ages. Plus, each birthday child will always receive a special creation, in addition to being my #1 helper throughout the day.


"Our family has grown!  My husband Patrick and I welcomed our second baby, a boy named Jake Michael, in June 2015 and love watching our daughter Juliana Grace enjoy being a big sister. Since I work full time during the week and spend the rest of my free time being Mommy to these sweet babies, my available time for parties and events is limited. Please contact me with plenty of advance notice if you are interested in booking my services for an event and I'll do my best to accommodate your needs!"


In response to popular demand, I took my love of art from canvas to skin over 10 years ago and have been offering face painting ever since. Along with balloon animals, my two additional party-perfect services, face painting and temporary tattoos, make Balloons by Kelly a must for your next event!




Balloon animals and face painting are unique, fun and creative additions to any event. Whether a birthday party, holiday celebration, corporate event, fundraiser or festival, balloon animals and face painting are the perfect touch to make your next event memorable for children and adults alike! Plus, because I operate Balloons by Kelly as a side business, I'm able to focus on great service verses on the bottom dollar. This also makes my services affordable and attainable for any budget.

I look forward to hearing from you about your event, and promise you this; your event will get my best work, my best customer service, and my best price.

  "The look on my daughter's face when Kelly made her a balloon animal was priceless - and she talked about the balloons for weeks! Plus, Kelly's rates were affordable, making it easy to add her to our party."

Partnered with the

Make-a-Wish Foundation


For the past 7 years, I have worked with a very special family at their annual bowl-a-thon to support the Make-a-Wish foundation. Veronica and Frank Johnson's son Dylan was born with some very rare heart complications. After numerous surgeries, Dylan's wish was to meet Mickey Mouse at Disneyland. His wish was granted by the Make a Wish foundation on July 17, 2000. Just 10 short days later, Dylan passed away at the age of 2.


Join me in supporting this amazing cause by attending the Dylan Johnson Annual Bowl-a-Thon every year in October at Cloverleaf Bowl in Fremont, CA.  For more information about this wonderful event and learn how you can participate next year, visit DylanJohnsonbowlathon.com



Note: All balloons used for animals are made from latex, and all paints used for face painting are hypo-allergenic/non-toxic, water-based and easily wash off with warm water and soap.
