This week, we’re highlighting Poptastic. Poptastic is a new Ridge balloon and gift business with the motto: “In a crazy world, why not sparkle and pop.” Poptastic will stuff balloons with confetti or gifts, and design vibrant color-themed balloon arches for sports and other events. Poptastic’s balloon designs for any occasion include business promotions—getting the word out about openings and adding sparkle and pop to business décor. Have a special question you want to ask someone? They make “Pop the Question” boxes for any occasion you can imagine. Items from a stuffed animal to beverage bottles can be enclosed inside a balloon and personalized. Call (530) 413-3983 or visit Poptastic online in’s business directory.
