Meet the Team
Balloon Stylist, Recording Artist, Party Enthusiast
Hi, I'm Dani, the owner of Party Up Balloon Co. I moved to Nashville in 2016 to pursue a career in music, releasing my first single and later an EP Grace in 2018. Since then, I have released two singles, toured Southwest America as the opening act for Cirque Musica, and played in the Losers Downtown house band for over a year.
So, starting a balloon business may seem random, but it really has been a perfect fit! For over 35 years, my grandparents owned a prominent party store in my hometown of Reno, Nevada, and every family member worked there at some point. It was actually my first job as a child! For years, I have watched the women in my family excel at creating unique events and silk floral designs, while I have only asked for balloons for my birthday.
When a good friend of mine started her balloon company in Charlotte, I would just admire her work from afar. As I watched her create amazing balloon art, I felt pulled to do the same, eventually doing a mentorship with her. I opened Party Up Balloon Co. in February 2022, and it has been a wild ride since then! I couldn't imagine how quickly business would pick up, and by the end of the year, I had left my full time job as a server.
Now I get to bring the fun to events all over Middle Tennessee, and it has made my little heart so happy. Because if you know me at all, you know I'm all about a party!

Hey y'all, my name is Bailey and I was born and raised right here in Nashville. I am a mother to a beautiful little girl named Blake, and two giant pups named Tex and Stella. I love country music, espresso martinis, and cooking new, yummy recipes for my family. I have a love for traveling and relaxing on warm beaches any chance I get. My love for the sun eventually called me to pack up everything I owned and move 13 hours away to Miami Beach, Florida. After almost three years of soaking up the Florida sunshine, I decided to come back home to the place that will forever hold my heart, Nashville, Tennessee.
Before becoming a mom and then balloonie, I spent many years in the service industry in the Nashville area. Once I left the industry to raise my daughter full-time, I branched out and started my very own small rental business, Nashville Chairs. I've always dreamt to be a part of something that allowed me to put my creative mind to work, so when I met Dani and was given the opportunity to work alongside her, I knew immediately that this would be the position and job for me. In my time working for Party Up Balloon Co., I've learned so much about this side of the event and party industry, and cannot wait for all of the many, beautiful installs that we will provide to Nashville in the years to come!!
Balloonie, Life Saver, Pickleballer
Hello everyone! My name is Elizabeth, and I currently work as an assistant at Party at Balloon Co. Originally from Atlanta, I made the move to Nashville in 2021 with my then fiancé and our two adorable fur children after living in Chicago. When I'm not working, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and spending quality time with my amazing husband. This year, I decided to try something new and fell in love with pickleball. I am currently on a league with my husband and our close friend Hailey.
My friendship with Dani began two years ago when we met at a Bachelor viewing party. I started hanging out and lended a hand with some prep work. One day Dani had a massive installation project and asked if I would assist her for the day, warning that it would be quite demanding. To my surprise, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and that's how I found myself working for her.
READY TO CREATE SOME MAGIC TOGETHER?
