It’s going to be an exciting moment for Foam Party Hats when they make their pitch on tonight’s episode of Shark Tank.

Grace and Manuel Rojas will have to put on their thinking hats on, and find a way to convince the sharks to invest in their business.

The mother/son duo creates and sells festive party hats for every occasion and they have over 10 years of experience in the business.

Where it all started

The business started years ago in their home country of Venezuela, when Grace created a hat for her daughter’s Hora Loca, which means “crazy hour.”

It is a Latin-American wedding tradition in which a siren goes off during the wedding reception, signaling the start of the crazy hour.

Guests then take to the dance floor boastings quirky items such as feather boas, glue sticks, pool noodles, masquerade ball masks, and crazy hats.

It was during her daughter’s Hora Loca where Grace created a variety of interesting hats and by the end of the event, she was taking orders for more.

 Foam Party Hats LLC

In 2010, Grace and her son Manuel left Venezuela and settled in Houston, Texas.

Manuel started college and Grace continued to create unique hats.

Her business grew through word-of-mouth and soon the items became known locally and internationally.

When Manuel graduated college, he joined his mother in the business and Foam Party Hats LLC was founded.
