My Story

Welcome! My name is Gloria Zarate, I am the owner of Joyful Vibe Balloons (formerly Yummy Pie Babies). I am so glad you're visiting our website and hope we can be of service. 


My small business has experienced many changes in just a few short years. Originally, I started a mini dessert service for catered events. We were chugging along slowly growing our event lists and even picking up some 'regular' events. But when the 2020 pandemic struck, it changed everything. 

One day, purely by accident, as I searched drive-by party ideas I came across a YouTube video giving balloon decor tips so I began searching for additional ideas to use for the party. The more I researched the more I became excited about all the beautiful and fun ways balloons can help you celebrate your most important life events. As the saying goes, "When one door closes..."


I am blessed to have had the opportunity to virtually train with some of the best in the field and business open up again, I continue to train in person (woohoo!) so that I may be current with the latest techniques and offerings to create beautiful balloon decor for your special and important celebrations. 

I look forward to your call. Have a beautiful day.
