What initially began as “Air-Magination” in Columbia, MO has evolved into the brand known today as Social Balloon Bar. Destiny & Dalton McKnight embarked on this venture amidst the global pandemic in 2020 when they saw a need for beautiful balloon decorations in Columbia, Missouri. Remarkably, the business experienced rapid growth within a short span of time prompting the need for additional support as they currently endeavor to expand the brand beyond Columbia.
While Social Balloon Bar remains committed to its growth within the Mizzou community, it eagerly anticipates venturing into new markets and establishing affiliates (franchises) in the years to come.
Meet Your Balloon Team
Destiny - a spirited Texas woman with a vibrant personality, has a strong penchant for unleashing her creative energies. She thrives as a businesswoman, constantly seeking new horizons and nurturing their growth. Transitioning into the balloon industry was an obvious choice for Destiny and her family, recognizing the untapped potential across various markets where innovative ideas could flourish, provided the right team and expertise.
Destiny harbors ambitious aspirations for the SBB brand, steadfastly committed to guiding both her teams and clients towards the realization of unforgettable memories through the medium of balloon art. When she isn't immersed in the world of balloons, using them as a whimsical escape from reality, Destiny can be found cherishing precious moments with her family and indulging in well-deserved rest.

His quiet but impactful presence, coupled with his keen analytical mind, sets him apart as a formidable force.
