Spotlight Artists: Eve Antonello, CBA & Silvia Santos, CBA

“We have a special consideration for the Air Force 4 Inflator. Our most reliable helper, we use ours in our everyday work and teach with it in our classes. It’s a must have!”

A Brazilian native, Eve Antonello graduated with a degree in Business Administration in 1998 and immediately started her career in balloons by opening her store Eve Balões. In 2002, Eve began teaching balloon decorating classes throughout Brazil and quickly started to be noticed as a pioneer in the Brazlian balloon community. Eve continued to gain more experience through seminars she attended in Brazil, USA, Europe and Asia. Eve’s fascination of the “balloon universe”, which is how she likes to refer to it, continues to ignite her creativity and drives her to invent more efficient techniques to teach to her students.

Silvia Santos began working with balloons in 2003 in Philadelphia under the company So Festas. Since then Silvia has honed her craft and in 2008 united with Eve where they went into business together and created the company Party Planet; a party supply store based out of Brazil and has since moved to Pompano Beach, Florida. Their success was recognized in 2010 when they received the prestigious Brazilian Executive Award. Their status in the community quickly skyrocketed and earned them recognition in the Brazilian and Hispanic balloon communities worldwide.

Together they have received the honor of being highlighted in Qualatex’s yearly calendar, featured in Qualatex’s catalogs worldwide and the publication “Images” in both USA and Europe.

With a combined experience of 16 years in the balloon industry along with their vivacious personalities, they are on balloon decorators “must attend” lists when teaching at any convention. Their ability to speak Portuguese (their native language), English and Spanish has only opened the gate way for their expertise and knowledge to be shared with designers around the world.

See a list of all their accomplishments below.
