Dapa Balloons began as a partnership between Dawn Kubler and Pat O'connor back in 1980. It was born out of a garage in Queens, New York primarily as a balloon delivery business to service the bank where both partners were employed. The name "DAPA" was derived from the two first initials of each partner's name. The delivery business in time grew into a part-time balloon decorating service with wedding receptions as the primary focus of their decorating business and still continued as a well-established balloon delivery business. In 1989, the bank where both partners were employed in management positions made a business decision to move the bank to Delaware.

At that time, the partners made decisions to go in two separate directions. Pat O'Connor went to work for a rival credit card processor in Jacksonville, Florida and Dawn Kubler opted to relocate with the Bank to Delaware. At that time the partnership was dissolved and each went in their separate directions. Once settled in Delaware, Dawn Kubler decided to revive the decorating business on a part-time basis and take in a new partner. John Spina joined the business in early 1990 and they both decided to keep the name, which had been established in New York. The business started off slowly in Delaware and soon, through hard work and dedication to the art of balloon decorating, Dapa Balloons quickly became a very established and respected business in Delaware. Dapa Balloons continued as a part-time business until early 1992 at which time Dawn Kubler ended her 20 year career with Chemical Bank and dedicated her time and efforts 100% to the fine art of Balloon Decorating.

In 1995, Dawn completed a comprehensive certification program and earned her Certified Balloon Artist recognition. This earned her the title of being the First Balloon Decorator in Delaware to become certified through the Worldwide Qualatex Balloon Network. In 1996 as the business continued to prosper, the partners made a decision to Incorporate and the corporate name became Dapa Associates, Inc., doing business as "Dapa Balloons". The business continues to stay on the cutting edge of Balloon Artistry through continual educational classes and conventions around the country, as well as industry videos and a strong network association with other Balloon Artists throughout the United States. The main focus of the business has always been and continues to be Quality State of the Art Balloon Decorating with a strong emphasis on Customer Service, Dependability and Professionalism under all circumstances. The company employs approximately 9 fully trained, part-time employees that also focus on the same work ethics as the owners.

The company's clients are mainly comprised of major corporations based in Delaware and the tri-State area, with a second strong background in private events such as wedding receptions, bar & bat mitzvahs, as well as being a leader in balloon deliveries throughout New Castle County. They treat each customer with the respect that each and every client deserves regardless of the size of the event.
