Twisting balloons and making smiles

Posted: Tuesday, March 23, 2004

There's a new clown in town. Laurie Netschert has moved to the Central Peninsula from Colorado and has brought with her talents for making children from 1 to 101 crack a smile and have some fun.

Netschert is a professional balloon twister and calls her new business T&L Entertainment, specializing in balloons for all occasions. A mild interactive clown Laurie is aware that some clowns can be quite frightening to kids, "I like the kids to relate to more of a person then a full freaky type, clown's can be very intimidating to little ones and some kids can get scared and end up crying, but I want the kids to have fun and my main goal is to put a smile on their face, that's what really matters" said Netschert at last weeks Soldotna Chamber of Commerce luncheon.

Balloon art or balloon dcor is one Laurie's specialties for parties, carnivals, grand openings, or events of all kinds, "It can be very time consuming to make some of the caricatures taking up to a couple of hours to complete, or some times you can twist something up in a few seconds," said Netschert. As an event coordinator Laurie says she can put it all together and save you time, money and make your party a lot more fun, "You get your cake, ice cream, balloon twister, entertainment and all the way around you'll probably be looking at less than $100. We'll do any party for any age anytime." For more information call Laurie Netschert of T&L Entertainment at 262-9090.
