If you’re wondering why pastel-colored balloon are saturating the building above Mi Ranchito Produce on Mission Street, wonder no more. It’s all a part of Oh Happy Day’s tenth anniversary. The party-centric site, headquartered at Mission and 21st, went all out for their birthday.
Hoodline has the full story:
For last night's anniversary bash, Oh Happy Day founder Jordan Ferney commissioned her friend Jihan Zencirli to create the balloon installation. Zencirli, an L.A.-based artist, is the founder of Geronimo Balloons, which has erected similar installations all over the country, from the Giants' dugout at AT&T Park to Los Angeles' Standard Hotel. Later this year, she'll bring them to France and Morocco as well.
The balloons, for the record, are all made with biodegradable and compostable latex.
What’s more, Martha Stewart took note of the balloon-strewn fun and posted a pic to her Instagram. Delightful.
Here are some festive shots of the 5,000-plus balloon installation.
I never would have dreamed that this little ol' blog I started 10 years ago would grow into a career, a shop, and a team of wonderful people. I'm feeling so grateful tonight as we celebrate our 10 year anniversary. Special thanks to my awesome team, @geronimoballoons for this crazy installation, and @alisonpiepmeyer and @paulferney for sticking it out with me. And THANK YOU for following along. I've always felt very loyal to our readers and followers. Here's to the next 10! #ohhappydaybirthdayparty
