ouquets bur t on the scene Slark got the idea to begin a business like Balloon Bouquet from his sister who owned and operated a similar store in Lubbock. "The funny thing is that now he has a shop in Lub- oock, too, in competition with his sisterj' she added. Clark had a shop in Albany, too, and the clowns delivered their unique bouquets just about everywhere ,n the Abilene area, Edith said. The bouquets were available in large and small sizes. The large arrangement had 18 balloons, and the small bouquet included 12 balloons. One of the most oopular arrangements was a Bust-a-Gram, which in- :luded eight balloons, with a message inside the largest bouquets. Grace Dewberry, instructor of business at ACU, received a bouquet from her fiance while she was teaching an economics class. "I kind of knew it was coming, but I was still really embarrassedf, she said. "The bouquet was huge, and I let class out early so I could carry it down the hallwayf' Deneane delivered bouquets to children's birthday parties as well as parties for adults. "The children were usually responsive, but there were a few who would burst into tears when they saw me," Deneane said. "They were actually scared of melu oalloon. The clowns, mainly women, bould sing, dance and give a kiss for :he price of the Jouquet. Deneane said the clowns nust be unin- nibited, and she Jsually was asked Lo sing to or kiss Lhe honoree on the :heek or whatever was requested - 'within reason, of :ourse." From birthdays to bosses, Bozo-li ke bearers bring bright baables - Balloon Bouquets j Delivering bou- quets to sick people or the hospital pro- vided the most en- joyable trips for Deneane. "One day I was delivering a bouquet at the hospital," she explained wand as I was leaving, an old lady who saw me all dressed, called out to me from her bed. "I asked how she was and if I could do anything for her. For one delivery Deneane had to go to a party at the Veterans Club. She was told to sign in at the door Jefore she delivered the bouquet to the 50-year-old recipient. "I was a little nervous about that because there was a lot of drinking and dancing going on inside,', she said with a laugh. My first thought was of me getting kicked out of schoollv But she delivered the balloons and escaped without a scratch. Parties weren't the only places clowns took balloon And she told me she was so excited to see me and that sheld like a balloon, toof, So the next day Deneane took her some individual balloons. She continued taking balloons almost every- day to the 80-year-old woman until she was released from the hospital. nIt's a great service for me to be able to make people smile when I take the balloons because it's a way of do- ing something for others," she said. "And in the world today there just aren't enough smiles to go around." - Barbie Shelton Balloon Bouquet 197
