Two moms and former colleagues, Kim and Jen, connected as friends after losing their jobs in the hospitality industry due to COVID and quickly discovered their shared passion for decorating. After discussing how much perfectly good decor is thrown away after a single celebration they recognized a gap in the marketplace. The biggest trend in celebratory decor is the balloon garland so they began to recreate them with paper honeycomb balls and the "paper balloon garland" was born as Pop of Paper co's signature offering. The garlands mimic their latex counterparts in beauty and the best part is they are installed for an event, removed when the event is over. The honeycomb balls are reused until they've reached the end of their life span and then recycled.
Did you know that latex balloons can take anywhere from 6 months to 4 years to decompose wrecking havoc on marine life in the process? With the environment at the forefront of everyone's mind, they are proud to offer products that Mother Nature would approve and still look beautiful.
In addition to paper balloon garlands, Pop of Paper co offers a wide variety of paper decor for any celebration and even seasonal home decor.
Further inspired by their two young daughters that love to help them decorate for the holidays, Kim and Jen then came up with a secondary line to the business: subscription seasonal kid decor boxes. POP Boxes include everything to help kids create and decorate the spaces around them tied to a seasonal holiday or occasion. To their delight, POP Boxes have been a huge hit for little crafters and decorators everywhere. All items in the box are recyclable and mostly made from paper. Some pieces can even be used year after year.
