Our friends recommended Jen to us, and she exceeded expectations! Our twins were thrilled that "Elsa" came to their 4 year old birthday party. Jen kept around 15 children occupied with magic, face painting, balloon twisting and of course, many Frozen songs! The twins were so happy that they have asked for "Anna" to come their birthday next year...
She was patient with the children and even little babies...very fast and friendly...we will definitely refer her to everyone we know...
Very glad that I found this site and hired Marshall Magoon!!! The children enjoyed his show and the adults, too!!! Very punctual, well-prepared and lots of magic!!! Thank you for making may daughter's birthday party a memorable one!!!!
Ashley was great. She arrived early, was flexible with her service, and delivered exactly what I had hoped for. I'm sure she tied more than 75 balloons for adults and children alike. Thank you Ashley!
Jennifer is highly professional, friendly and extremely talented. She did a fantastic job painting the faces of almost 30 children in under 3hrs, as well as offering glitter tattoo's. All the children loved it and many parents commented on her great work. I would highly recommend Jennifer!
She was great. Very good with the the kids AND the adults. Even stayed through the rain. Very cool.
The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Police Department's 2nd Annual Halloween Trunk or Treat was another huge success with thanks to so many people. The department showed up in full force to provide a safe, fun, and positive Halloween event for the communities near the South Hayward and Coliseum stations. Thank you so much to everyone who provided donations and also to those who attended the event with their families. Everyone’s participation was appreciated and contributed to the success of Trunk or Treat. At our South Hayward BART station, we were lucky enough to have two special guests: The Hayward Fire Department, Station #7 and the most incredible artist and face painter: Sarah Joy of Joyful Expressions. From the time Sarah Joy arrived, there was a long line of excited children waiting to have their faces painted. While they patiently waited, Sarah Joy provided pictures of her designs for the children to choose. She brought smiles to faces of the children and their parents as they watched sons transformed into batman and pirates or daughter into butterflies or Dia de Los Muertos. Sarah worked quickly and was able to accommodate a continuous line of children for 2 hours without any break. She was the highlight of our 2017 Trunk or Treat. We would highly recommend Sarah Joy and Joyful Expressions to other police agencies, community groups or families looking for a dependable, professional and creative face painter to add to your events.
Shannon was an absolute pleasure to work with - a perfect blend of warm & professional. She was on time, efficient, accommodating, and friendly. Her artwork is outstanding, and the children and families were thrilled. We couldn't have asked for a better face painter, and we will both use her services again and happily recommend her. 5 stars, for sure.
Manya was great! We hired her for a 2 hour event May 1st 2016, she had a child in her seat the entire 2 hours and she always had a smile on her face, she was always kind to the children. The kids loved her designs. We will hire Manya again for sure!
I hired Celia for face painting at my daughter's 1st birthday party. Celia is a very nice young lady who is very good with children. The quality of her paint and the art that she draw on the children's faces were beautiful. My party had more than 150 people and about 1/3 were children. Celia managed to turn around many cute faces without sacrificing any quality!
Marcela was amazing. Quick and easy I just told her we want her there she was on time and even early. Not only she worked on the kids she did the adults too. Highly recommended.
For my daughter’s 12th birthday, Amulya did henna tattoos for the kids and adult guests. Everyone was fascinated on how fast Amulya worked in creating different designs for everyone. Thanks for making our first henna tattoo experience a delightful one!
Kimby was incredibly professional and probably one of the best entertainers we've had at our children's birthday parties. She captivates her young audience and the kids are so into it. She's also a very talented face painter and just a wonderful down to earth person as well. We'd definitely recommend her to friends.
I have known Danny for more than 10 years and have attended many events hosted by him such as birthdays, housewarming and weddings. He has been a very outstanding host at these parties and is well liked by the children . He organised games and keeps them entertained the whole time.
Shobi H November 27, 2016 Dublin, Ca It was our One year old & Five year old grand daughter's birthday celebration!! And we got everything we hoped for to make this event special! It couldn't have been more beautiful! You made all The Difference in our grand babies birthday celebration! Thank you! Both, children and adults enjoyed your one full hour's interactive magic show and we wished we could have more. My 5 year old grand baby hasn't stopped talking about you and how much fun she had!! She says it was the best birthday party ever!! Mark Kronar is very professional, timely and highly dependable. He is very friendly and has awesome tricks to deliver. Value for the money!!
What a wonderful experience. Fun had by all, adults and children alike.
Alan did a fantastic job! Both the adults & kids had a great time. Thanks for making my father-in-laws 80th Bday such a memorable night
We had an excellent experience with Lisa from Pacific Face Painters. She was very personable, and did an amazing job working with over 20 children (and a few adults). The quality of her work was very detailed. Both children and parents were impressed by her artwork. I won't hesitate to hire Lisa for any future events. Thank you, Lisa. You are a rock star!
All Star Showgrams was amazing to work with! They were quick, very professional, and made the process of booking very easy. We were SO THRILLED when Batman (Tom) came to our twins' superhero birthday party. Not only was he not scary in his Batman costume for an audience that ranged from infant to 9 yr old, but he was super friendly and entertaining. His costume, attitude, voice were all on point and I'd highly recommend him and this company to any family that needs a character...especially Tom for Batman. He entertained a rowdy group of 14 kids (mainly preschool age) for over 2 hours!!! Money well spent!!!
I had a Marvel Black Panther theme birthday party and what she had never done that facial design before. However a couple days before the event she had found a design showed it to me and on the day of the party the kids loved it. I loved it the parents loved it she did an awesome job. She was a very nice always smiling very professional I'm extremely happy that I hired her for my son's 5th birthday party. Though all of the children decided to get black panther she did do a couple other the designs that came out wonderfully as well. Her prices are also super reasonable. If you need a face painter that does arm designs and glitter tattoos and all that fun stuff I would definitely recommend her. I'm sure she'll probably beat this design so I just want to say thank you again so very much. Signed very happy mom.
Inder was so great with the kids and adults! She was a hit at our company picnic!. Her work is amazing, and she is very accommodating. We will definitely hire her again next year and maybe for upcoming birthday parties! I highly recommend her. :)
