Classroom TBD

Cost - $60.00 before January 15, 2019

Despite being an iconic element of the balloon world now almost since it’s beginning, balloon drops are the still the number one thing many decorators refuse to touch. But with countless venues on New Year’s Eve alone wanting them, you’re passing up a gold mine if you pass them by. 

 

Anthony Cooper has become a leader in this element of balloon decor, actually having gone on tour with such musical acts as Taylor Swift and Maroon 5, coordinating their fabulous concert balloon drops. Over the course of four hours, you’ll work side by side with Anthony prepping several balloon drops that you’ll be able to use photos of for your portfolios since you helped prepare them! And he’s even got some special surprises up his sleeve that you won’t want to miss.
