Not just dogs and swords!

Stretch Clendennen, better known as Stretch the Balloon Dude, has been twisting balloons into animals, hats, and more since he first bought a book on balloon twisting in 1989. He is a master balloon artist and can create just about anything out of balloons. Of course, he can make balloon dogs and swords, but he can also make vehicles, characters, crazy hats, and so much more. If you need more than one balloon artist, or if Stretch isn’t available, don’t worry, we have a network of entertainers that we trust to work our events if we need them.




Dress up your venue!

Balloons are great for adding pizazz, color, and fun accents to party and event venues. Balloon columns, arches, swags, table decorations, and large display balloon sculptures can not only make a room look colorful and bright, they also let people know that they’re in the right place for a fun party or event. Decor is priced according to size and complexity, so Stretch will need to discuss your ideas and needs to determine what your needs are and how we can work with your budget to make things work best.




Personalized and fun!

Flowers and chocolates are cool, but think how much more fun it would be to send someone a custom made balloon sculpture. Stretch can create a special balloon sculpture and deliver it in person or even through the mail (continental US only). You can wish someone “Happy  Birthday;  congratulate them for a promotion or graduation, or just let them know you’re thinking about them. Whatever the reason, a balloon delivery is a unique, fun, and special way to brighten up someone’s day.

Party in a Bag

A bag full of fun!

Your party is close and you forgot to book a balloon artist, or perhaps Stretch is already booked for the time and date of your party. Whatever the reason, there’s no need to worry because Stretch can make a bunch of super fun balloon animals, or other designs. The balloons can either be delivered in advance, or you can pick them up yourself. This is a great way to have fun balloons to hand out as party favors as kids leave your event. Contact Stretch to find out how you can set up a “Party in a Bag” to make your party or event more fun and special.

Check our calendar for availability, then contact us today to add a balloon artist, face painter, temporary airbrush or glitter tattoo artist, or a photographer  from Stretch & company to your event today!
