About us

Smiles are our aim…

Balloon Art is our game

We specialise in Bespoke Balloon Creations, something magical you just won’t find in your standard balloon shop. 

What happens when your main occupation is making children smile week-in week-out, and the world nearly stops? You figure out a way to deliver smiles anyway!

The Balloon Hive is powered by the Mandy May team! Mandy May is a world recognised face painter based in Sydney and started Mandy May Face Painting & Balloon Twisting back in 2017. Growing quickly, she gained popularity with children and parents alike… often asked to paint at some of the largest and most beautiful events. Mandy received many callbacks and regular clients requested her services so she was able to get to know many of the children and their friends.

Mandy’s husband soon joined in the fun helping her create amazing balloon characters, and as a team they were able to create joy, laughter and add a splash of colour to every single birthday and event they attended.

2020 may have thrown a curveball on events, but now Mandy May and her team have created The Balloon Hive. That means amazing, custom, colourful & bespoke balloon bouquets to your door. Delivering smiles like never before!
