Kelly MonacoThe Kelly Monaco Fan Club loves sending balloons to the star of ABC’s General Hospital. The fan club provided our Los Angeles partner AMAZING BALLOONS BY GEE with 100 custom printed balloons for a recent delivery. Upon arriving at ABC Studios they learned that Monaco was not scheduled to be on the set until the following week. After consulting with the fan club, Claudia and Dennis Gee, owners of the company, arranged for a redelivery using a unique solution. They returned the balloons to their studio and stored them in plastic bags for a week. On the revised delivery day they untied each balloon, refilled them with helium, and delivered them like new to an appreciative Monaco.

Untying the balloons was possible because each had been tied around its ribbon tether — the same technique used when tying balloons to a line of monofilament for a string of pearl arch. A simple tug on the ribbons pulled the knots open.

Kudos to Claudia and Dennis for their AMAZING customer service, and for hanging around long enough to take this photo. What a great effort — one that was appreciated by many people.
