After much love, tears, meltdowns, lockdowns, wondering, worrying, sailor jerry-led conversations, last-minute cancellations and never-ending postponements, I’ve realised that installations no longer take my fancy.
I’ve done some epic work over the past 3.5 years, and I’m so thankful for every opportunity a client has given me to get creative in balloon form. I’ve worked on some epic jobs for epic brands and epic people. I’ve also worked on some shit jobs, for shit brands and shit people.
But, at the end of the day, all I want is for my kiddies to look at me, working in my element, in a place that fulfills me creatively. So, from now, installations are kaput; cancelled (like our UberEats reliance – mostly, kinda, okay, maybe one day -, but, seriously wtf’s with those service fees, Uber?)
Hold your unicorns, though. We – the fancy brand you know and love – are not going anywhere.
... saying that, i've still got a soft spot for sweethearts...
I’ll continue installing exclusively for some stylists, clients and couples.

THE DIRTY DETAILS
Installations start at $1000+ GST
You: “Whoa, what the f*ck, guys?”
Us: *Nods* Yep, we get it. We aren’t cheap, and we aren’t for everyone. But before you freak out, we’re going to explain why we’re worth every penny.
Trends are fun, but originality is better. Which is why we’ll spend a silly amount of time carefully conjuring a custom concept that uniquely fits your vision, celebration, space and style.
We’ll visit your site (you’ve got great taste, by the way), get a lay of the land, then return to Fancy Schmancy HQ to sketch and strategise.
Your unique vision and event brief will be thoughtfully analysed. Then, we’ll pair it with our penchant for artistic and mind-blowing balloon designs to create a custom concept we’re 110% sure you’ll not only lose your socks over, but that’ll also give your event the kind of atmosphere, mood and fancy style that *they’ll* be raving about for years to come.
Hi! *Waves* I’m Kady. I’m a mum, wife, friend, designer, creative and artist. I design, create, manage and install every single Fancy Schmancy balloon installation. Balloons are my artistic medium and my unapologetic happy place.
But even though I juggle my multiple roles (with varying levels of success, sorry, Ace, my gorgeous daughter), I’m only one human. And as cool as it’d be to have that superpower, I sadly can’t be in multiple places at the one time.
Which means your event will get my exclusive attention and energy.
(Yikes. Not even my husband gets that.)
It’s me - Kady - again. I wanted to mention that I might be lazily laissez-faire about matching my socks (meh, washing), but I’m unapologetically pedantic about perfecting my balloon installations. So you can bet your butt that I’ll be harnessing all my juicy experience and expertise to craft a bespoke balloon installation that perfectly matches your vision and branding.
I’ll tirelessly cover every single possibility to get the exact RIGHT colour for your installation and then painstakingly plot the best placement, positioning and structure for maximum impact and ‘OMG’ factor.
It’s the type of anal perfectionism that gives me premature stress wrinkles but ensures your event installation is ah-may-zing from every angle.
We’re gonna be real with you: Fancy Schmancy style takes time. And we don’t rush genius. Which is why we’ll be on site bright and early (with caffeine clutched in our arty hands) to devote our full love, care, attention and skill to your amazing event.
It starts with sourcing and colour-creation coating your installation in a shine treatment. Seriously. Every balloon. Even if there are 1,000 of ‘em. This guarantees your balloons last longer (phwoar) and won’t oxidize as soon as we arrive on site. Which would be gross. You deserve better.
For this price, you’ll get up to 8m worth of balloon garland to transform your space. If you’re not math-minded, let us reassure you that it’s a lot.
If your space is any smaller than that, then we’re confident our DIY garland kits will fulfil your balloon-y fantasies. Speaking of which …
Want us to make an exception foR you?
Ooh yeah, look at you givin’ those installations a saucy up-and-down appraisal.
