The Party’s Here is a family owned and operated business that opened in 2004 in a small shop in Panania. We’ve grown our client base, product range and services so much over the nine years in Panania that we made the decision to relocate to a larger premises in Padstow in 2013. During our now 12 years in business, we’ve become active members of the local community, supporting businesses, schools and fundraising events where we can, including RSPCA Cupcake Day, Panania Festival, Padstow on Parade, St Christopher’s School Fetes, Picnic Point Bowling Club to name a few. We supply balloon decorations for many venues throughout Sydney, including Bankstown Sports Club, Club Central Menai & Hurstville, Bankstown Trotting Club and Dooley’s venues.
Achievements & Education
Achieving both winner and finalist results in the True Local Business Awards and the Torch Local Business Awards from 2007- 2009 for Gift/Specialty Store and Specialised Business.
After attending the first ever World Balloon Convention (WBC) in Dallas, Texas USA in 2010, we decided to focus on the balloon side of the business and we are now active members in the balloon industry. We are dedicated members for the NSW and VIC Balloon Artists and Suppliers Association (BASA), the Sydney Chapter of the Qualatex Balloon Network (QBN) and the Pro Environment Balloon Alliance (PEBA). We regularly attend meetings, training days and conventions both locally, interstate and internationally with other balloon professionals to learn from each other and maintain a high standard of design and customer service in our industry.
Also in 2010, our manger, Claire Geldard, received her internationally recognised qualification of Certified Balloon Artist after undertaking both written and practical exams in NSW and QLD. In 2011, Claire also received her accreditation from BASA, showing that she has a good knowledge of the balloon industry and its’ practices, including environmental concerns.
We have attended the World Balloon Convention in 2012 in Dallas, Texas USA and again in Denver, Colorado USA in 2014. In 2016, Claire was one of few to be awarded the Treb Heining Pioneer Visionary Scholarship to attend the World Balloon Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana. In 2018, we represented Australia yet again at the World Balloon Convention held in San Diego.
In 2013 & 2015 we attended the Australasian Balloon Convention in QLD, learning and sharing experiences and designs with balloon professionals from all over Australia and New Zealand. In 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 we were also involved with Ozjam, a balloon event focusing on balloon twisting in Melbourne & Sydney. Claire was selected as a NSW Ambassador for the 2014, 2015 & 2018 Ozjam event held in Sydney. Claire has also made her teaching debut in 2016 at Balloon Camp in Creswick, Victoria and has continued to share her knowledge and experience in the balloon industry in both Sydney & Adelaide in March, 2017 at balloon education called Q-Tour.
We’re now looking forward to many more educational events to come and are excited about the future for the balloon industry.

There was free snacks and barefoot bowls, raffles and give aways, live entertainment, balloon twisting, face painting & glitter tattoos, vintage cars on display, balloon fashion, cake tasting and a photo booth.
