The Unique Twist
The Unique Twist
The Unique Twist was started in 1995, by Doug, as a simple but
Entertaining Way to Amuse and Amaze Both Family and Friends.

Starting with only one book and one bag of balloons, the first couple of
months were quite entertaining, as the same dozen or so, balloon animals
were made over, over, and over.

Both family and friends grew tired of dogs and such, and encouraged more
creations, which led to more creativity by Doug, to keep them satisfied.  More
training with books, Vhs instructional tapes and Cd's resulted in many more
different balloon creations leading to more satisfied customers and opening
many more doors.

Not long afterwards, family and friends grew to include more and more people
and companies wanting balloon creations, and thus , the business expanded
to include private parties, small events, and private picnics.

After many successful " Kids Festivals",  The Unique Twist
expanded again to take on new clients, new events: including craft shows,
school carnivals, church events, restaurants, trade shows, fun fairs, and all
types of festivals both indoors and outside.

Word of mouth from these events quickly resulted in even more work requiring
more artists, yet that was still down the road. New artists have been being
trained and added since 2008.

Yet even as the business " ballooned", the focus remained the same.

To bring happiness and smiles to people of all ages through unusual and
unique balloon creations.
Thus the name----
 The Unique Twist, now The Unique Twist &
Twisting Crew.

We have had many talented and professional artists working with us and
always continue to seek more talented individuals to our team.

In 2009 the name changed to The Unique Twist & Twisting Crew to reflect the
fact that even more artists were working to make events special with balloon
entertainment.
