How We Began

99 in the Shade Party Supplies Balloons & More began in 1998 that "we built from scratch" after many months of research & without any outside funding.

We take great pride in knowing that we built our business on our own ~ little by little ~ but still was build by us, all on our very own! We did not purchase an existing business.

With over 21 years retail experience, twelve of those from owning her own business, customer service is definately a number one priority. With ongoing balloon training, First Class Service courses, Superhost, etc we have been formally trained to help give you the best customer service we can.

We are Port Alberni's only professional CBA balloon decorators!

For a truly spectacular event, enlist a Certified Balloon Artisit (CBA) for your decor needs.

We are proud to be Port Alberni's "first and only" Certified Balloon Artist!
