BALLOON LADY’S BIRTHDAY PARTY TIP: Always GIVE guests PARKING INSTRUCTIONS or helpful hints, perhaps on the invitation, if parking is not conveniently located directly at the party venue. (I have many bookings for private & corporate events in Chicago and always ask my client for exact details. However, all too often I have witnessed GUESTS arriving late and harried because they didn’t realize the venue had no direct parking–have fun driving around the block, oh, for 20 minutes until something opens up!–or didn’t realize there was a pay lot that didn’t accept credit cards–and they didn’t have the cash on them!)

Be Proactive! BE UNPOPPABLE!
