Celebration Creations’ Stephanie Cofield-Mixon Set to Bring Balloon Creativity and Expertise to Indiana Charity Event

Stephanie Cofield-Mixon, the owner and balloon artist behind Celebration Creations, has been selected to join a team of the world’s top balloon artists for an extraordinary event in Northern Indiana. Out of hundreds of applicants, only 80 were chosen to create an immersive balloon wonderland using more than 150,000 biodegradable balloons, with all proceeds benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Michiana.

The Big Balloon Build: A Massive Balloon Extravaganza

The Big Balloon Build is an international balloon event that promises to transform the Northern Indiana Event Center into a larger-than-life, fully immersive balloon carnival. From April 22nd to 25th, Stephanie and her fellow artists will work tirelessly to construct a whimsical world of balloon creations, including tightrope walkers, a giant Ferris wheel, and playful clowns – all crafted entirely out of balloons.

“We are thrilled to have Stephanie be a part of the team, helping us create this massive event and raising important funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Michiana,” said Stuart Davies, director of the Big Balloon Build.

Stephanie’s Passion for Balloon Artistry and Giving Back

For Stephanie, this opportunity is a chance to combine her love for balloon artistry with her commitment to giving back to the community. As the owner of Celebration Creations, a balloon decorating company established in 1989, she has been bringing joy and wonder to events for over three decades.

Originally based in Northern New Jersey, Stephanie later relocated to Ocean County, where she has operated the Balloon Boutique in Manahawkin for the past 25 years. Throughout her career, she has embraced opportunities to contribute to charitable causes, and this is her second time being selected to participate in the Big Balloon Build.
