BAH-LOON-A-TICS AKA BALLOONATIC & CO.
Who are we? Just two gals from Saskatoon, with a seriously weird amount of know-how when it comes to balloon wrangling and event handling (are we at the zoo? Not the animal kind). We’ve sliced and diced enough tissue paper to cover Saskatoon with it, blown up so many balloons that if you combined them, you’d definitely float to the moon (or mars), and stuffed an inappropriate amount of latex into the smallest of vehicles. We’ve also recently become Balloonatic & Co., a pairing of Balloons + Events to serve not only Saskatoon, but as far as a 3FT balloon can float (it’s far, trust me).
JEN KORNEY – CREATIVE OWNER & FOUNDER
Back in January 2013, Jen was sitting with her face glued to Instagram (sad, but true). She came across a gal in LA who invented the fancy balloon and was stunned. Why, in 10 years of Event Coordinating experience, had she not seen ANYTHING like this…so in went some time, some sweat, some research, some trying, some failing, and then succeeding in become Saskatoon’s balloon gal.
In the past two and half years, she has created and fancied up events for some of Saskatoon’s top established and sincerely local businesses. While she’s not becoming light-headed from all that helium, she focuses her daytime efforts on the local digital scene, as a Product Owner at her favorite local business, zu.
CRYSTAL BRODEUR – OPERATING OWNER & GO-TO BALLOON GAL
When it came time for Jen to shift her free-time back to her love and little humans at home, Crystal was it. She was the “one” who could take Balloonatic & Co. to the next level. Why you ask? Well Crystal knows how to work the clock to her advantage, manipulates a Kate Spade dayplanner like no other, has the keenest eye for pretty details, plans weddings for a living (that alone would be enough), and has the most amazing, creative personality to channel into all of Balloonatic & Co.’s clients and events. Crystal owns Love + Lace Event Design along with working alongside professional event planners at On Purpose Leadership and events.
