Founder and Certified Balloon Artist, Dori Saypol flew across the pond to participate in her fourth Big Balloon Build. This build was her first international build. She was the Team Leader for the Gnome Village area of the build. She oversaw her team of 4 balloon artists and the picture above is what they made.
Overall, the entire build used 125,000 biodegradable balloons to make the City of London, the bunny slope, Reindeer barn, 15-foot Christmas Tree, Santa on his sleigh with his reindeer among other designs.
80 balloon artists (picture below) came from around the world to help with this project. Local children’s charities benefitted from the display. It was another amazing experience!
