616 is our area code in West Michigan. We are specifically in Grand Rapids, a beautiful, exciting, growing and creative city.
We. Love. Balloons. Brightly colored latex or foil balloons in every size and shape! We are excited about everything from special event decorations with classic arches, centerpieces and columns to specialty sculptures, party balloon decorations of any size or theme. We of course offer balloon delivery in and around Grand Rapids MI.
We love the process of making your party extra special! When you hire us, you get more than party place balloons. You get real artists as passionate about the material we design with, as we are about thrilling your guests with the incredible experience our balloon art will create.
“…Yes, we can do that!” All you do is accept the compliments!
Not much compares (as a job) with walking into a place with a giant balloon sculpture. Seeing wide eyed stares turn into Huge grins and hearing “Oh WOW! That is Sooo Coool!” THEN!…the phones come out and the pictures start. We love it! Just think of all the kudos you will get for being smart enough to find & hire the coolest balloon art available! Honestly, in the last ten plus years, I remember less than 10 people who don’t like balloons. That is an Amazing statistic!, everyone else is always all smiles and compliments.
If you can think of a reason to celebrate and show your guests how much they matter to you, we will make that moment extra special!
Call us passionate, obsessed or addicted to Balloon Art. Each is a description we won’t deny! The ability to use our love of Balloon Art to make your event or gift giving Amazing is a blessing we are grateful for!
As always sharing our work on your social media channels is important and greatly appreciated. Links and tagging us is very important too!
Balloons Are Eco-friendly and Sustainable!
Latex balloons are not just a bright and beautiful decor option or art medium that makes people happy. They are also a natural, biodegradable and sustainable product you can feel good about using to make your event truly special.
As proud members of Balloon HQ, the home of the Best balloon artists in the world, we maintain the highest possible standards in our work and art. We use smart and responsible practices in all of our work. Latex balloons are biodegradable and decompose at about the same rate as an oak leaf. The process to remove the sap from the rubber tree is the same as harvesting maple sap from maple trees for syrup. The trees can be harvested for as long as 40 years. This helps prevent deforestation in the rain forests they grow in. Balloon art is a responsible choice for your decor and gift giving needs.
We follow The Balloon Council’s Smart Balloon Practices to uphold the integrity of the professional balloon community—and ensure everyone can fully appreciate the joy balloons bring to life’s occasions!
We also make the most innovative Lazy Susan turntables available today. Visit 616art.com to see them! On the heavier side of our favourite material for Art list is wood, every size, shape and color. Metal, from I-beams to wire, steel to copper, we love it all. We create large to small functional wood and metal sculpture. We prefer to use recycled materials whenever possible. You can see available sculpture and more at our store 616 Art here 616art.com! If you want a beautiful sculpture for your garden, foyer, as a gift or corporate head quarters. A Lazy Susan for a wheelchair user or your own art studio. We look forward to making that happen for you.
We Are Blessed with Great Family, Friends, Collaborators and Clients. Every cool thing you see from us is because of them. We are more grateful than we can say.
An about us page would be incomplete without mentioning our “supervisors”. AKA, The Dogs…Emma & Hiroshi. Never a dull moment with these two! They have a board on Pinterest, see it here.
Emma was first and because of her we met some of our best friends. Ron Watson and Apryl Lea of Pawsitive Vybe were our first Professors of Dog Stuff. Not only did they teach us the truth about “dog stuff”, but Apryl is an amazing metal artist. Apryl created the copper petals for our 1st ArtPrize Sculpture. We have collaborated on a few Disc Dog Trophies and always look forward to time with them.
Apryl introduced us to our friends at Paws With A Cause and the Fly By Night Flyball Team. If you haven’t seen dogs run Flyball, you are missing out! Great people, Great dogs and Great times. Many Thanks to whoever dumped Emma in our yard.
