How is a Bouncy House Made?
Ever wonder how a bounce house is made? Look no further! We will tell you everything you need to know about making bounce houses. Bouncehouses, obstacle courses, and giant slides. They key is choosing high quality materials to ensure a high quality end result.
What is high quality vinyl?
When choosing an inflatable to buy or rent, be sure to ensure that the inflatable is made from phthalate free 18 oz Vinyl PVC. This ensures that your inflatable was not manufactured using any nasty chemicals and that it is heavy duty enough to handle big kid bouncers (adults). Here at 3E we always purchase inflatables made of high quality vinyl to ensure durability and that the customer gets the best quality of inflatable available on the market.
Sewing Up Seams
Before any inflatable is produced, a 3D model is made using computerized imaging software that allows the designer to see what the inflatable will look like before it is sewn together. The software also tells the designer what the physical constraints are (i.e. how tall the inflatable can be and still stay inflated etc.). The next stage involves cutting the vinyl pieces. The average bouncehouse has over 50 separate pieces of vinyl. Once the pieces are cut they head over to the sewing machines where they are sewn together using high gauge coated vinyl thread. Once the pieces are sewn together, the inflatable is inflated and tested to ensure there are no leaks. Now the inflatable is ready for FUN!

A big part of what we do at Executive Events & Entertainment is consumer advocacy. In essence we review the party packages being offered by our competitors and ensure that the deals you, the customer, are receiving are up to snuff. In other words if you find a deal at a bouncer company we cant beat than it might be too good to be true. This week we found such an instance being offered by a photobooth rental company in Solon.
Bait & Switch
We received a call from a client (who will remain nameless) regarding a groupon being offered for a 3 hour photobooth rental for only $295.00. Seems like a great deal right? Think again! Upon further investigation we discovered that this deal is certainly too good to be true. When attempting to redeem the groupon for a photobooth rental we discerned that this company was indeed offering a photo station (open air photo taking equipment) not a photobooth! Further, delivery, staff, and props were all at an extra cost.
So, let's compare their package with the one offered here at Executive Events & Entertainment. For sake of ease lets say it is a 3 hour event and you want some funky props and an attendant with the booth. What would the cost be?
So it would seem that when the numbers are added up our photobooth rental beats them all. So, whereas we are sure that groupon itself offers great deals; dont be fooled by the bait and switch technique. Some companies will put up any price that will get you to call.
Have you ever wondered how sno cones are made? Well you are in luck! This article covers how to make the perfect sno cone. Upon reading this you will be able to beat the heat with a delicious sno cone.
Step 1: Rent a Sno Cone Machine
There are two options when it comes to sno cone machines, you can either buy one or rent one. We personally recommend renting one but if you are dead set on owning your own high quality sno cone machine they can be found HERE. But!, if you want a hassle free sno cone machine (one you don't have to clean yourself *wink wink*), you can rent one form Executive Events and Entertainment. Click Here to Rent a Sno Cone Machine. Once you have your sno cone machine ready its time to add some ice and get your sno cone cups ready!
Step 2: Grind the Ice
Lift the handle on the top of your sno cone machine. scoop ice into the chute until it is full. Push the red button on the machine while simultaneously pushing, with even pressure, the chute lid back down. Be sure to keep your fingers and ice scoop out of the ice chute. Once the chute lid is all the way back down all of your ice has been ground and the chute is ready for a new scoop of ice. Be sure to fill the machine with at least five scoops worth of ice shavings before trying to make a sno cone. The more ice shavings in the machine, the colder the machine will be thus the longer the ice shavings will last.
Step 3: Make the Perfect Sno Cone!
Your sno cone should have (whether you rented one or bought one) a scoop with a long handle that kind of looks like a soup ladle. First, take the aforementioned ladle looking device and scoop some ice shavings into the bottom of your cone shaped . If you are not using cone shaped cups then it is not really a sno cone is it? We might cover that next week. Once you have a good base of shavings in your sno cone cup it is time to form the dome and by its own right the most signature part of a sno cone! Take a scoop of ice shavings and flip the ladle device full of ice shavings onto your sno cone cup. before removing the ladle be sure to twist it while gently pressing down. This is what forms the dome of the sno cone. Then just add some flavored syrup and ENJOY!

Scrub a dub dub!
You may have asked yourself, (if you haven't you most certainly should have!), "is the bouncer im renting clean?" If you rented your bouncehouse from Executive Events & Entertainment you can rest assured that that bouncer has been cleaned rigorously! Our inflatables are cleaned and disinfected by hand after every rental.
The Cleaning Process
The cleaning process is simple. First we start cleaning our bouncer rentals by blowing the bouncehouse up. Once the bouncehouse is inflated we attack the dirt with mild dish-washing liquid soap and water. Each inflatable is scrubbed inside and out. Once the initial cleaning phase is done we move on to the disinfection stage.
Once the initial cleaning stage is done our bouncers are disinfected using Spray Nine spray cleaner. Spray Nine kills 99% of infectious bacteria and viruses including Ebola! Once the bouncer has been disinfected it is secured in a storage bag and placed on the shelf ready for the next party rental!
So you may be asking, "why so much guff about having a clean bouncer?" Everyone, from little ones up to adults want to have fun in a safe environment. Here at 3E, we ensure your bouncing environment is clean and ready to go! In essence, we offer worry free fun for your party goers.
