If you said Antoinette Young was full of hot air, chances are she wouldn't get mad at you. That's because it's all part of her dream to make your celebration "pop!"

Her friends saw how creative she was at decorating with balloons encouraged her to expand, make it official, and take her show on the road.

A year ago, she made Net's Balloons for all occasions official. Since then, she's been building frames that support her creations. The toughest one so far was a request for an elephant. She says it took 400 balloons.

She's now decorated wedding venues, graduation parties, prom sendoffs, bridal and baby showers, Bar Mitzvahs and more.

Even though there is a lot of fear involved with starting your own business, the Albany woman says it's worth it to see her dreams "blow-up!"

See some of her amazing balloon creations by watching the video of Elaine Houston's story.
