Stephanie Cofield, Certified Balloon Artist


Stephanie Cofield, CBA, is owner and founder of Celebration Creations, Balloons and Event Decorating Services. She discovered her love for balloons as a child and that love was rekindled by happy coincidence while employed as an Operations Manager for an international furniture and design gallery. Responsible for managing all bookkeeping, Stephanie was often asked to plan company parties and events – managing everything from budgeting and planning to hiring vendors and decorating. It was there she initially discovered her passion for serving people within the Special Events industry.
In 1988, together with her sister, Stephanie co-founded Affair Dynamics, Wedding and Party Planning Service; however that was just the tip of the iceberg. Seeking to increase their client base, the two by opened a retail party store in Essex County. In no time, Stephanie received numerous requests to supply balloons and decorate for her clients events and it was then that she found her true calling. Stephanie loves playing with balloons and other artforms creating fun centerpieces, elegant room décor, one of kind sculptures, and especially theme-related designs.

In 1989, she founded Celebration Creations, Balloon Decorating Service and quickly became the preferred balloon decorator in her community and the surrounding areas. Challenged to continue to design and create decorations that would dazzle and delight her customers, Stephanie became a member of the National Association of Balloon Artists and began traveling throughout the U.S. attending “creative college” courses. She has had the privilege of learning from some the industry’s top designer and balloon artists. In 2010, Stephanie received her acreditation as a Certified Balloon Artist. She is now recognized as one of less than 2,000 balloon decorators worldwide to receive this designation.
