Jen was great. She kept the kids attention for almost 45 min with an adorable puppet show and sing-a-long. She made the birthday girl feel special with a special necklace. But two things. My daughter really wanted to show her a book and I get that wasn't part of the show but she just ignored her. I wish she would have just acknowledged it. And she gave herself a 10 min window to be late and was then ten minutes after that. So it started 20 min after I wanted it to. She did call but I think she was a bit overbooked. All in all it was great and I would do it again in a heartbeat. My daughter loved it and my friends and I thought she was one of the best performers we have seen.

Annie was very friendly and the kids enjoyed her. She has an artists syle to her graphics and the characters were nicely painted. The color on some could be more vivid. I would hire her again. She may want to include in her post that the fastest way to communicate with her is via electronic mail on Thumbtack.

I was very pleased with Angela. Her face painting was excellent and she was great with the kids and very easy to work with. My guests commented positively on her face painting skills and a couple of the moms got her card so they could use her in the future. She would very pleasant to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She also made balloon swords for the kids.

Recently hired Amulya and one of her associates to be henna artists at the Diwali event in my company. Amazed by the quality of service. Amulya is super fast with her work and everyone who got the henna done was really happy with the designs they got. She was punctual, started on time and did not take any break for over 2 hours.. which was helpful since the queue was too long :) Will definitely recommend for henna services.

Connecting with Alan for our kid's first birthday event turned out to be one of the best decision. He has lot of tricks up his sleeve and keeps the guest entertained non stop. He was very accommodative with some of the events running over time. He did a walk around magic tricks and center stage entertainment. Everyone totally loved him. He's also good hearted and a very nice person to interact with.

I had an absolute blast on my wedding. Everyone was gushing about how memorable it is because they saw a live caricaturist at work while she drew the guest in real time. Sharon is so amazing! I booked her a month before my wedding since I decided last minute to have a caricature artist. She told me that I would need to do/have so I had an easy time coordinating with the wedding planner/venue. Very easy to work with and was very clear in our communications so she was one of the vendors I didn't have to worry about. She was very popular and probably never had a break because everyone wanted to have their caricature drawn - she was that good! I originally had her for 2.5 hours and had to extend because she was so popular. She even accommodated my guests crazy requests and my not so prompt guests who sat in last minute. Seriously, I was watching her draw one of my guests and I was in such awe of what she was doing, my husband had to remind me to eat my salad because they were about to bring the main course! She chatted my guests up and made them feel comfortable while she drew them even though we were blasting music on the other side of the room! She drew everyone with a smile! Thank you Sharon for making our wedding day an absolute perfection! We are already thinking of our next big party and the one thing my husband and I decided was to have Sharon entertain our guests with her lively caricatures!!!

My company hired a balloon artist through All Star Showgrams for our holiday party this past weekend. I could not be happier with their service! Our artist was on time, came dressed up! and was very professional. Her work was great and the few kids that attended our party loved her as well as our adult guests! Thank you All Star Showgrams for the fantastic entertainment and thank you Thumbtack for connecting us with them!

Lollie the clown was a great attraction at our Halloween party. She was costumed up and rarely rested for the 2 hours she worked for us. The kids really enjoyed her balloon creations and my kids are still playing with them a whole week later.

Thank you "My Once Upon a Time" for making my daughter's 1st birthday party such a success!! Belle and Superman were absolutely wonderful!! It was such a pleasure and so easy to work with Loni when I contacted them, and they arrived on time and stayed in character the whole time. They were so sweet with the kids, and really kept (all ~35 of them!) entertained and engaged :). Also, we had parents telling us that they were the best looking characters they'd seen!! Kids (and parents) were so happy and excited to have them there. The kids kept entertained with balloons, tattoos, story time and bubbles =). We're are so happy they were part of making our party a success~ we would high recommend them for everyone and look forward to working with them again for our future parties =)

    I was looking for someone to do face painting and balloon twisting services for my daughter's 1st Birthday Party. I found Hooray Balloons Kids Entertainment and a couple other businesses that offered similar services on Yelp. Elaine was the first to quickly respond! She answered all my questions and was able to accommodate my requests. She was also great about checking in prior to the event. Elaine was very professional and you could tell that she loves what she does!! A lot of my guests were very impressed and the kids liked her too! Her face painting artwork was on point and she had cute options for balloon twisting. I would definitely recommend her and will use her services again!!

    She kept a group of 7 year olds very entertained. The balloons she made for them all were adorable. They asked her to make special ones and she did. We would highly recommend her.

    About

    Services offered: - Professional murals - Customized apparel (hats, shoes, purses, etc.) - Balloon art parties - Face painting My name is Lila Louise Gemellos, and I am the artist, designer, and saleswoman (so far) for No Paradigm Designs (NPD). Briefly about my background: I was born and raised in Silicon Valley, California. I've been a student of art for as long as I've been a student of anything. I've been oil painting since the age of 8, and I am still pursuing my passion for art. I started to draw on shoes at my mother's request. A pair of feet on tennis shoes, it sounded like a silly idea at first, but it was the catalyst for NPD. An artist's information sheet will provide a formal style and mission statement. No Paradigm Designs is my creation based on the assumption that art can be anything we say it is - a purse, a pair of shoes, anything. Let's do something new; something that's going to get tongues wagging. NPD personalizes useable pieces of art. Who wants a masterpiece if you can't show it off, right? I like to blend your input, a lot of color, and a little humor with my art. I view each pair as a new canvas. I just want to make you something you're going to love. NPD is a one-woman operation; however, someday it'll be much more. I've been taking orders online via Facebook message or email, but when my site is fully functional, all your ordering desires and questions will be fulfilled here. If you have any other inquiries, please don't hesitate to e-mail or call me.

      I need a DJ that can run the party from the start to finish. Looking for a Chill out style house tunes to start...Gramatik is a good example. Think poolside, something to be able to have cocktails, tap your foot to, but still be able to talk to people. We like hip hop, tech house, dubstep (but not the super heavy kind), prog, electo...We're from Long Beach so any Snoop n Dre always goes over well. We love mash-ups, kaskade, deadmau5...if you're a top 40 guy, I'm not really into that. If you can't beat match, please dont respond to this. I don't want someone just dropping songs where they like, or just playing a playlist. We want a full build up to a dope dance party! Not exactly sure how many hrs...but lets just say 6p to 2a (set-up time included). If you can, give me a per hr rate. I'm not sure what venue yet, and if they have a PA. We will have some people that will want to speak briefly early on...but it'll be short n sweet.
