Oh Happy Day turned 10 Years old this year! Technically our birthday is in May but we were moving into a new studio at the time so we had to postpone the celebration. I wanted to take the time to throw a little party before the year ended so about six weeks ago we started planning two events: “a little cocktail party” and ” a staff dinner.” I keep laughing at how fast they both turned into crazy epic parties. They were supposed to be pretty simple and then we kept saying “what if we did this…, what if we added that…” until we were throwing the biggest party I’ve ever thrown. I wanted to share some aspects of the party here this week. First up is this EPIC balloon installation by
Jihan led the team and we had about 10 people working for a day and a half to make this. We had people pulling spiderman moves to secure it and after a long morning it was finished and ready for our party. One thing I love about Jihan’s installations is she only makes them in public spaces so the community can interact with it. It was really beautiful to see everyone stop and take pictures and be blown away by the balloons. Everyone was so happy! It was like a gift to our neighborhood. I feel super lucky Jihan was willing to do this to celebrate Oh Happy Day’s 10th birthday! Below are some photos and a time lapse of our installation.
