This Labor Day we’re celebrating our now 164 stores coast-to-coast with a Summer Sendoff Celebration. I hope you’ll stop by any of our stores for yummy treats and family-friendly activities, but if you can’t make it in, you can join in on the fun from your home!

My friend Dan is a major balloon buff—seriously he can make anything out of balloons (we’re talking tigers, mermaids, leprechauns!) And this year he’s teaching us a couple of the tricks he’s got up his sleeve. Follow along with the videos below and join in on the balloon fun!

Balloon Dog

This one is great for beginners! Grab a balloon and have a blast recreating your favorite four-legged friend!

Balloon Monkey

This one has a few more steps than the balloon dog but is still fairly simple. Follow along to make a cute and mischievous monkey!

Balloon Chair

This one’s my favorite for obvious reasons. It takes several balloons so is a little higher on the difficulty scale, but super fun for your other balloon friends to sit on!

Pick your favorite, or try all three! Take a picture of your beautiful balloon creations and tag @MyBobs on social media. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!


I consider myself the luckiest spokespuppet ever because I get to talk about the thing I love the most everyday – furniture! Tufted headboards, rustic finishes, the difference between a sofa and a couch (yes, there is a difference)… I could go on and on. Oh, I just love furniture and I’m SO excited that I have this blog to share my passion with you! It may take me a little longer to create posts – have you ever tried typing with clay hands – but I look forward to talking furniture with you!
