INTRODUCING ALISSA TADIC OF TWEE PARTEES
GENEVA–Twee Partees, created by Alissa Tadic, was one of the winners of Geneva Commons’
inaugural Uncommon Collective, a contest for small businesses to win a free pop-up storefront or restaurant space. Each winner was awarded a free location at Geneva Commons, as well as a cash prize to be used toward the design and build-out of their dream pop-up.
Twee-A Balloon Boutique also known as Twee Partees brings fun and unique party goods and balloons to the Tri-Cities, making every event extra special. From bridal parties to baby showers, residents can wow their guests with this curated selection of specialty, colorful balloons and party packages. Twee Partees officially opened at Geneva Commons on June 4.
We caught up with the owner, Alissa Tadic, and here’s what she shared:
WHAT IS YOUR SHOP’S MISSION:
We believe balloons are always appropriate and there is always a reason to PARTEE! We strive to bring fun and unique party goods and balloons to the tri-cities – we’ll make your event EXTRA special! Not only do we want to put a smile on your face, but also WOW your guests with some of the biggest and most colorful balloons you have ever seen. We can’t wait to deliver on your expectations and make your event the best ever!
Air-filled organic garlands and bouquets available for pick-up or on-site installation, helium-filled balloons, paper party goods, greeting cards, gifting items and more.
WHO INSPIRED YOU ALONG THE WAY:
Every single customer! Twee is unique because our business started in May of 2020, a time where the world was in need of BIG, Bright, balloons! From every order, every like, comment, or share on social media, to the tears that have been shed when we would arrive with balloons for a drive-by celebration- it is all so meaningful. Still to this day, it is our customers who inspire me. Every new theme, color scheme, and vision becomes the inspiration to exceed what they want.
WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO ACHIEVE WHILE IN BUSINESS AT THIS LOCATION:
Other than brand awareness and to increase my sales and achieve my goals, I want people to come into the shop and feel happy, I want them to take a picture with the balloons and I would love for them to tell their friends!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BUSINESS QUOTE:
“If your dreams don’t scare you, they're too small.”
WHAT LOCAL WOMEN BUSINESS OWNERS INSPIRE YOU & WHY:
Oh gosh, there are so many! Jane Pabon from Jane Pabon Boutique has always inspired me. I actually worked for her years ago. What inspires me is that no matter what, she stays true to herself and her vision. That is what makes her shop so unique.
WHERE DO YOU HOPE TO BE 2 YEARS FROM NOW:
I hope to be in the process of franchising TWEE!
Alissa shared that “being on this journey has truly been a dream come true!” Congratulations to this local entrepreneur. Wishing her all the best in this exciting business endeavor!
