MIDLAND, Texas (KOSA) – Cody Williams, owner of Cody’s Red Balloon, has always dreamed of opening his own balloon shop.
Today, nearly six years after starting his business, his shop is ready to open.
Williams has been creating balloon designs for over 20 years now.
He is a Certified Balloon Artist and Master Florist from Texas.
Her shop will include not only balloons, but also flowers, stuffed animals and a mini bakery.
Williams says he got into balloons at a young age and now he even teaches people how to do the great designs he does.
“I learned on my own, then I started going to conventions and workshops and learning more in-depth stuff from professionals, and now I’m an instructor myself,” Williams said.
Cody’s Red Balloon has its own DIY station to create your own balloon design, and with that, it comes with over 40 color combinations and instructions on how to put them together.
This way, anyone who enters can learn how to make these designs.
Cody’s carries out large projects for events such as weddings, corporate parties and many other events.
They also recently designed the ball for the annual meetings of the Midland Chamber of Commerce.
Williams says the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed back her plans to open her boutique.
“It took a while because I looked all over different malls, and I went back there a couple of times, and it was the ignorance of what was really going on in the world, and where we’re going to stand. and when is it going to stop or is it going to go on for years,” Williams said.
Williams has been working from home since 2016 and now says he has one store, he plans to open more stores in West Texas and possibly the United States.
Williams says the community has been very supportive of her choice to start her own store, but says her store is not a party store.
“It’s more of an experience and choose your chocolates and gifts and what we do, most of our stuff is tailored to what you’re looking for, even from events to a simple birthday bouquet,” Williams said.
His shop officially opens on October 11.
