Anne McGovern, CBA

Elegant Balloons

Pearl River, New York, USA


After spending 20 years in the corporate events and meeting industry with Goldman Sachs and Avon Products, Anne McGovern decided to take time off to raise her children.  She started a home – based event planning business in 2005, and after exposure to the world of balloon decorating realized this was where her skills and passion lay. 


Anne opened Elegant Balloons in 2007, focusing on high-quality, accessible balloon décor.  Her first convention was FLOAT 2009, where she earned her CBA.  Since then, Anne has attended many educational seminars, including FLOAT where she has won numerous awards and the World Balloon Convention.  She has been an instructor at FLOAT, WBC and BASA along with many one day classes sponsored by Qualatex.   Her work has been featured in Images magazine along with other publications. 


She loves creating and sharing her ideas for sellable, creative balloon décor with pizzazz and twisted accents.  Today, Anne operates a successful home – based business in the New York/New Jersey area and is known throughout the industry for creating breathtaking centerpiece displays.
