We hope you enjoy the journey of discovering how fabulous your child’s party can be with us.
After all, we are about creating beautiful memories that will stay with you for life…
Once upon a time…
there was a child celebrating a special occasion. They dreamed of a party filled with family and friends. Where for one magical day, they could be a pirate or a fairy, a superhero or princess, or party with magical unicorns and teddy bears – or be that little girl who found wonderland at the bottom of a rabbit hole…
Pop the Balloon! burst onto the party scene on the Central Coast of NSW in January 2016 with a party mumma who had a vision to share her passion for creating the ultimate children’s parties with as many children as possible.
Whether it be your child’s birthday, a milestone celebration, baby shower, children’s religious ceremony or naming day, or even your school vacation care entertainment – we are dedicated to helping our clients create successful programs of entertainment where happy and engaged children are at the heart of all that we do.
With Pop the Balloon! we begin with a simple philosophy… if you can dream it, we will create it – and we will work with you to deliver unparalleled attention to detail which we believe will create your next memory for life.
Rochelle is a highly imaginative party stylist and event planner who’s flair for party styling can be most likened to that of a storyteller. You will get so much more than glass jars filled with lollies when you hire Rochelle as your party stylist!
Rochelle is also a business professional with over 20 years experience in corporate Australia. Throughout her busy career, Rochelle has coordinated and delivered a number of events from budget dinners to conferences, gala dinners, workshops and road shows to name a few.
It is the professionalism and sophistication demanded in these fast paced environments that enables her to bring your special event to life with minimal effort on your part.
Complimenting her corporate life was her creative and artistic endeavours as a dancer and dance teacher who was privileged to work with some of the best entertainment organisations in the business. This included her unforgettable experiences working with Disney Australia. It was her exposure to the world of Disney that inspires her most to bring more than just ‘party plates and hats’ to your next event – it is also about bringing the ‘magic’; capturing the hearts and imaginations of every guest and ensuring that your child’s party will linger in their minds long past their special day.
Having swapped the corporate world for the excitement of creating magical lands filled with pirates, superheros, fairies, and other childhood superstars; Rochelle is no less busy, raising her three young children with her amazing husband – right here on the Central Coast of NSW.
Rochelle is also a New South Wales Justice of the Peace and has a current working with children check.
