    Karrine is fantastic artist and extremely professional. She should up early and was ready to go by the time the party started. I would definitely hire her again for another birthday party.

    Karrinne was great to work with. Prompt communication. Her balloon artist, Stephanie, was very friendly and a pleasure to have at our school event. 5 stars for overall rating.

    Tea in Tiara's was great to work with. Karrinne was quick to respond and the Balloon Artist that entertained at our event was wonderfully colorful, engaging, and made some of the most adorable balloons ever.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Our clients like to book our costumed characters because they are all professional actors and actresses that sing and dance and are all great children's entertainers. We also book a lot of face painters and balloon twisters as we have some of the best in the tri-counties. Our specialty is theme parties and we host a lot of custom theme parties that fit our clients needs and budgets!

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. Princess Costumed character appearances with games, face painting with games and mermaid costumed character appearance with singing and games!

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. Parents should already know the date and time of their event. They should know how many children they anticipate will come. They should make sure that the party is either inside or outside depending on what the season's weather usually is. And mostly their maximum budget for the entertainment.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. Tea in Tiaras takes pride in offering quality costumed characters and services. We pay attention to detail. We provide a wide array of services and rentals. We are a mobile business, however we also have the use of a party room that is exclusively available to Tea in Tiaras clients. We make every client a priority and treat all the children as our own. We provide fun parties that entertain the children and the parents get to enjoy the party with their child. We have a passion for what we do and we always strive at excellence!

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. Me and my staff love interacting with the people. I love watching their reactions. Children just want to be played with and made to feel special and all of our staff always make an effort to pay attention to every child. Me and my staff love the connections we make with the parents and children. Our staff loves to make a positive impression on the children we entertain. Our costumed characters are able to touch all children in a special way that no one can really touch children. Making magical memories that last a lifetime is what we are all about.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. Can you do this special theme party for my child?
The answer is always yes! We offer custom parties for girls and boys. We even offer services for teenagers and adults!

Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?

A. My most memorable client had a little girl who needed a kidney transplant. We made this special connection with this family. And did this fabulous Princess Tea Party for them. Things were looking bleak with no kidney donors. Just 7 months ago they found a donor. She had her transplant. Her body is accepting it wonderfully. Recently the little girl drew a picture. It was of her and this lady... the lady was the owner who dresses up as a Fairy Godmother. After that moment I knew that Tea in Tiaras DOES make a difference and an impact on our children! I saw her at a Fairy Tea Party the other day. The mother and the little girl and I hugged and spent time talking. It was a beautiful moment!

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. That the prices we quote include rehearsal time, getting into costume time and performance time. What people are paying for is professional performers. So, our prices reflect all of these things to give each client the best possible performance for their celebration!
