Welcome to Above the Rest! Hello Teachers, Principals, and Parents! I could write pages about how much I appreciate what you do for today's children! Having been a school teacher and PTA president, I KNOW what it takes to make education fun, raise money, and balance full plates that swirl about madly in the air throughout each school year. Instead of writing so much, here is a very simple and indequate "THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!" When I taught and led Student Council, the workload of planning special events added much to my already fullplate. I wish there had been someone that could have helped me decorate events, which is one reason why I started Above the Rest Balloons--to make it easier for schools to have fun decorations at their events without staff members or parents having to do all of the work. Some people love to decorate and others find it overwhelming. Sometimes those who love to, simply don't have time to handle decorating details. In either case, this is exactly how our team at Above the Rest Balloon & Event Designs can serve you best. We make decorating a snap in 3 simple steps: 1. 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 most experienced balloon design team in Knoxville, and we make awesome school event decorations. Inside this catalog are photos of school events for elementary-high school levels. It will guide you in ordering the perfect decor for your event. We can, of course, create far more than what you see here--just ask! Excited to be serving you to make your next event look Above the Rest! With joy & gratitude, Dianna Glandon, President, CBA

Early morning and late night service is Premium Service, resulting in higher service fee. Optional pick up at our studio is available for smaller decor items.
