Welcome to Above the Rest Hello Church Event Planner! Thank you for ALL you do to plan special events for your church. If you are like many other church staff members or volunteers, you probably have numerous other responsibilities to handle in addition to planning special events.

Call or email us to tell us about your special event. 2. Let us design decor to match your theme and budget. 3. Sit back and let us do the installation so you can enjoy. We are experts in creating fun, colorful, exciting, and welcoming event decor. We are THE Balloon team who can make some pretty awesome event decorations with a simple balloon or create elegance with our luxury fabrics. Let us take the decorating tasks and stress off your already busy plate and spend your time with other important event details to make your planning job much easier! Inside this catalog are photos of various church events we have decorated and will guide you in ordering the perfect decor for your event.
