View Personal Bio
Balloon Magic is a purveyor of comedy, balloon art and caffeine, which all comes together in one place. This mom and pop business at the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and Richmond Street in Appleton has one main mission: to make people smile.
It is internationally recognized for its balloon art — from birthday and baby bouquets to yard signs and event decorating.
In addition, this shop is home to King Kong Espresso and Coffees. As a local pioneer in the cold-brewed coffee method, it is one of the longest-running coffee shops in the Valley.
The Gorilla was the original character that started delivering balloons and fun telegrams to homes, offices and restaurants. His popularity led to the creation of more characters like the Grim Reaper, Beulah the Nurse, Valentino the Romantic, Santa and Balloon Twisters.
