Welcome to Balloons By Sharon J.! Our lead designer and owner, Sharon Jenkins, started Balloons by Sharon J. back in the early 90s after realizing her talents with balloons from volunteering at her children’s fall festivals at their school. She loved the smiles it put on their faces and began teaching her children how to make balloon animals. She worked as a floral department manager at Publix Supermarkets for many years before deciding to start her own business. Sharon is truly gifted in the art of balloon and floral design and execution.
