Don't say the “p” word to Addi Somekh — “pop” is verboten for one who entertains with whimsical balloons. Somekh wows crowds at bar/bat mitzvahs, corporate events and birthday celebrations for any age with balloon art; he fashions balloons into elaborate headdresses, jazzy jewelry and dazzling decor. A self-taught balloon twister, Somekh has appeared on the “Martha Stewart” TV show and at various high-profile parties, including one for O Magazine. For distinctive decor, deck out an event with Somekh's multicolored daisies, urchin orbs and table centerpieces. For samples and pricing, visit www.newballoonart.com, or call 323/359-5322.
