Behind the Scenes with Geronimo Balloons

• 04 June 2012


A couple days ago, my friend Jihan Zencirli (creator of the wildly gorgeous Geronimo Balloons), pulled into Seattle for a whirlwind business trip.  I thought it would be fun to snap a few pictures of her setting up out on the street as she prepped for a pop up shop at Seattle's Object (more on this fabulous boutique in a couple of days).  Plus, the little outing gave me an excuse to don a pair of heels mid-afternoon...can't remember the last time I did that!  Since the whole process was such a visual treat, I wanted to share a handful of snippets of the chief balloon trooper creating the magic she is now known for~


I've been so impressed with how Jihan has built her business--she's worked so hard to make this happen and I've enjoyed every minute of her success.  Watching anyone, especially a friend, make their dreams happen is absolutely wonderful.  I think this is particularly inspiring and uplifting when it's a creative endeavor.  Here's to making your dreams happen too!  


Oh, and if you're wondering who Jihan's handsome friend is, his name is Andy and he is the creator behind Seattle-based Whitcomb & Company--a handcrafted furniture line with a warm, industrial spirit.



The making of a Geronimo balloon certainly turned a few heads on the street.  We could use a little more cheeriness out and about lately here in Seattle and what better way than with these helium head turners!



More colorful, fancy, make-you-happy-in-a-second frill and a mini balloon trooper in the making.


And then it was time to pick up the older kids at school...back to real life! :)
