Meet Sherry Shokoohi of OC Balloon Bar

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sherry Shokoohi.

Sherry, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
After having my second child, I decided I was just not ready to leave her at the end of my maternity leave, and since my husband was doing well in his full-time role, I could stay home with the kids.

Of course, being in corporate America sales for 20+ years, I started to feel a little stir crazy after a few months and didn’t want to lose my hustle… Hence, OC Balloon Bar was born. I launched the business Valentine’s Day 2018 after realizing that I love being creative, love social media and love to make people smile, all the ingredients needed to be in this business!

In just under one year, we were able to work with client’s such as Kathy, Nicky and Paris Hilton, Jessica Alba, Miss Tina Knowles Lawson, Kyle Richards and many more! Needless to say, we’ve been blessed with some amazing opportunities so far…

Has it been a smooth road?
There were definitely struggles along the way, given it was the first time I was putting all my efforts and energy into something I can call my own. This initially started as a hobby for fun and something that I could do on the side but once I started, I had to reach each goal I set, and it started to consume me more than my corporate role.

It was also difficult learning to keep my emotions out of business as I have always been passionate, but when it’s something that is yours, it’s close to your heart, so competition and realizing that there is more than enough to go around was something that took a little time to accept.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
We are known for our custom creations with balloons from garlands, to arches, custom clusters, jumbo balloons and more!!

I’m most proud of the client’s we’ve been able to reach and the names we’ve been able to work with since we started. I take pride in knowing that our reputation gained loyalty from some amazing client’s and allowed us to expand into the A-list community in Hollywood and Beverly Hills.

I believe what sets us apart is the quality of our work, the products we use, and the network of amazing friend’s we have in the industry!!

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Absolutely! Everyone can be cheered with a balloon, and there’s plenty of parties to go around!!!
