OK, let’s talk business. Tell us about RFJ and what makes your business unique!

We have combined our talents and skills to make a business that allows us to be creative and do what we love! Whether it be for balloon design, floral arrangements, or event planning in general – we just love to get to be a part of making an event special for our clients.

When did you decide to start this business and what’s been the biggest blessing in it all?
– We found our passion while throwing events for our family and friends, and decided to give it a go in 2021!
