MILWAUKEE — Nilsa Arce-Masso has been fascinated by balloons throughout her life.
“This is one of the [my mom] Will get us – so many balloons and a small gift. It’s been with us all the time, and for me, I love it,” Arce Marceau said.
That’s why she started a balloon company called Masso Balloons Decor, named after her mother. Fueled by her brother, the business has also come to life.
“He asked me to give him a baby shower in April and we did it and people were like, ‘You should start a business. You should do it more often. You should try it out, you’re really talented ,” Arce Marceau said.
Now, the South Milwaukee Company is using balloons to bring joy to those celebrating life milestones.
It started in April but quickly caught on. Arce-Masso said they were fully booked in September.
“It’s been an emotional roller coaster of being able to do so much in such a short period of time and grow along the way. I feel like every event is something new, we try new things, and we just keep growing,” Arce-Masso said.
So far, they have used balloons to decorate birthdays, weddings and anniversaries. She said she enjoyed every minute.
Arce-Masso said she believes balloons allow her to unleash her creativity.
“Sometimes my clients say, ‘I want browns and blues and oranges.’ Another person told me to create what I thought would be best for my event and to be able to go in and decorate something that I thought would fit and let it Being something they absolutely fell in love with was one of the best feelings because they gave me the creative freedom to do what I felt I knew how to do best,” Arce-Masso said.
