When you think of balloons or creating balloon art experiences, do you think of supporting an organization that cares for critically ill children and their families from around the world to visit Central Florida to make amazing memories? Stuart and Patti Gutter, Owners of American Balloon Decor are award winning balloon artists and were chosen as part of a talented team of international balloon professionals tasked with creating a gigantic, immersive balloon creation with Qualatex balloons at the Balloon Wonderland event in Orlando, Florida, all in aid of the charity Give Kids the World in Kissimmee, Florida.

Nearly four hundred balloon artists will join at the Hyatt Cypress Regency Hotel in Orlando from July 11th through July 15th, 2022 for Balloon Wonderland. In being part of this event, one of the largest, most unique balloon projects, Stuart and Patti will be using their skill that have developed over the last 25 years to create several fantastical themed areas such as Toyland, the Enchanted Forests and Under the Sea in an area of nearly 30,000 sq. ft. with displays towering as high as 24ft in height.

“What an amazing event Balloon Wonderland is. Patti and Stuart are going to be part of creating many iconic pieces at Give Kids the World Village in a gigantic balloon display, all in support of Give Kids the World. Demonstrating how the joy of balloons can also make a deference in the lives of so many people” Said Stuart Davies, Producer of Balloon Wonderland.

Since 1986, Give Kids the World Village has welcomed more than 177,000 families from all 50 states and 76 countries. Providing week-long, cost free wish vacations to critically ill children and their families from around the world at their 89-acre, not-for-profit resort.

During one transformative week at Give Kids the World, wish families laugh, play and can be together away from the reality of the life- threatening illness and the obstacle course littered with doctor appointments, painful treatments, overwhelming expenses and endless worry. A chance for families to capture precious moments.

It is a magical week of “YES” where wish kids experience the simple joys of childhood. “For over 100 hundred years, Qualatex Balloons has introduced the most innovative products and education to the balloon industry.” Said Susan Dhillon, Marketing Communications Director for Qualatex Balloons. “From the education and experience for balloon artists to the financial impact on the local community, and ultimately the benefiting charity, a win, win win.!”
