Back to NYC!!! This time My husband and I were taking our boys for a long weekend in the city to experience New York at Christmas. The flights were booked and our daily activities planned. I received another message from Darcy Miller. Darcy knew I lived in Florida, and she was looking for some guidance for balloons. She was working with the Martha Stewart team for a Facebook live promoting her book, Celebrate Everything and New Years Eve. Darcy knew the large Confetti balloons would be perfect for New Year Eve. Low and behold, I was already scheduled to be in the city the date of the filming!!!! Why YES, could personally deliver the confetti balloons to the Martha Stewart Studios.
I was in ahhh over the amount of time and planning that went into a social media post. Pay attention fellow balloon owners. The production crew treated this as if it was for a prime time show, super organized and beautifully planned. The Facebook live was promoted ahead of time. All the party props and ideas were pre made. I decided I would have a local party shop inflate the balloons, I called ahead of time to discuss delivery. It was my understanding I could pay for delivery and ride with the delivery driver. Apparently I missed understood the owner, they don’t use a delivery vehicle. The owner told me to get a Taxi and meet his delivery guy, Oliver at MS Studios. Oliver would either jump on a subway or walk the balloons to the final destination. I did not want to leave the balloons, so after I little debating I decided I would walk 45 minutes across the city with Oliver to deliver the balloons.
Oliver was so helpful and I was so glad he was with me to navigate through the city, we walked straight there and didn’t get lost.
The studio was amazing and I was over the moon Happy when Darcy took me on a tour. Darcy even interrupted Martha’s meeting so we could have a quick chat about the balloons. Thank you Darcy for trusting I HEART BALLOONS!!!!
