Jen was right on time dressed in costume and ready to face paint 20+kids. Her magic show was so fun and entertaining. She had a room full of 25+ 7 years olds totally captivated. They loved her. She is great with kids. I would hire her again in a heartbeat for our next party. She helped make my daughter's 7th birthday memorable and magical. Thanks Jen!
We hired Ani for our baby's 1st birthday. Ani was very pleasant and was great with the kids. The kids LOVED her. My daughter is very much into the movie Frozen and asked Ani if she could paint some of the characters from the movie. She had never painted them before but gave it a shot and they came out really good! My older daughter who is 5, begged me to hire her again for her birthday party. Looks like we'll be seeing you again Ani. Thanks for your services :)
Miss Amber came as Wonder Woman to my daughter's superhero 4th birthday party. It was her first time coming as Wonder Woman and she did a great job with her costume. She had 19 superheroes to tend to and she used all her two hours making awesome balloons and facepainting--most of them superhero themed-- for the kids. I had nothing but positive feedback from all the parents. They said she was amazing. Super Amber even went out of her way to make another balloon for one of the kids whose balloon had popped and repainted another girls face(because her father accidentally washed it out). The only reason why I'm giving four and a half stars is that I wish she had done more than her face painting and balloon making. Engaging the kids in a superhero themed activity or short game before her balloon making would've been awesome. I was a little disappointed she didn't do this as we had discussed it over the phone when interviewing her. However, given that she had only two hours and 19 kids under the age of 6, it probably would've been difficult to do. Her hourly rate is very reasonable compared to other entertainers I've checked out online. I would probably add another hour, though, if you have a lot of kids in your party. If she adds more games as part of her package or something to involve the kids in (to maker her character more believable)-in addition to her signature face painting and balloon making, I think she will become more successful. Thanks Miss Amber for making my daughter's superhero birthday party memorable!
The service provider was on time, patient with the kids and did excellent work on face painting, glitter tattoos and costume character ! Highly recommend her service to anyone!! Won't be disappointed !!
Kimby was absolutely stunning as Princess Ariel at my daughter's 4th bday party. Her costume, wig, attitude was all more than I could have ever expected! She was punctual, friendly and totally connected to the kids the entire time. I was concerned she would be overwhelmed by all the kids vying for her attention all at once but she handled it like a champ! She was more than accommodating and patient and fun! I do wish she would've paid more special attention to my daughter (the birthday girl) but the most important thing is that all the kids had a wonderful time and didn't want her to leave! She kept me informed and communicated with me throughout the entire process as well. I will definitely hire her again!
Robin was great to work with us. We had a May The 4th Star Wars party in our office, and Robin sent us four great costumed characters. They mixed and mingled with staffed, posed for lot of photos, and entertained our team. It was a great addition to the day! Thanks Robin!
Terri came early and set up. She worked extremely well with the children and with our adults who also got their faces painted :-) She came in costume (we had a unicorn theme) which thrilled by granddaughter who was the first to point this out. Terri was flexible and did 'arm painting' for those who did not want their faces painted. We truly enjoyed her and would definitely recommend her to others.
She entertained 6 children for an hour. No hassels. The kids had a great time and were impressed with the balloon character and toys.
We got Mickey mouse character & few activities from their list. The character was fun and managed to get attention of all the kids. All kids loved him. The helper who came with Mickey mouse was great too. She was patient and good with kids. Its great that i hired them as they made our party a lot more fun. I would love to hire them back soon.
We had a birthday blast for my daughter last month with Fernando and Malaika from Fiesta Magic. With 19 kids, and instead of getting a jumpy, we decided to try something different this year. Fernando, the magician, had the kids and adults mesmerized with his illusions and card tricks. The best was that he was able to get and keep everybody's attention. Malaika was in a Minnie Mouse costume and she went above and beyond her time. It was hot that day and I knew it was hot for her in that costume. She was a trooper as kids posed with her to take photos. I also got the face painting and different shape balloons, which was a hit for the 13 and under kids. The only downside was that Fernando would not reveal any of his magic trick secrets when asked by the kids. But that's understandable. He said it takes him years of practice. I highly recommend Fiesta Magic to keep the kids engaged and because of the different options that they offer. They arrived on time as promised and that is very important to me. I'll be using them next year and have recommended them to other friends and relatives for their parties and picnics.
Cynnamon is amazing! I'm a DJ in San Francisco and have had her paint my face for multiple events. She is very creative and has great attention to every detail she paints. I especially liked the leopard spots and cat eyes she did for me for my DJ gig on Halloween and received many compliments. Extremely professional and pleasant I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs professional make up, costume face paint, or for any special themed event
Outstanding performances! Elegant costumes, beautiful models/dancers. Must see to believe :)
We had a wonderful experience with Happily Ever Laughter and recommend them to anyone looking for something special for their child's birthday celebration. The entire experience was professional and enjoyable from booking to the big day. Miss Monarch was perfect! She had a magical presence, sang and performed beautifully and delighted all the children (both boys and girls) aged 1-5. We reserved face painting, a magic puppet show and sing-along. The children were all mesmerized by her show and singing and the parents were thrilled to sit back and enjoy as well (and later raved about her as well). She ended the show by gathering everyone together for cake and a sing-a-long of Happy Birthday making it a perfect birthday party from beginning to end. By far my favorite part was when she arrived at our door and surprised my daughter. She was completely enchanted by this beautiful Mermaid who showered her with special attention and began talking with her in character from the very beginning. She never broke character, even in our conversations leading up to the event. Prior to the party we had several questions and the fairies were always prompt and courteous in responding. Miss Monarch as well as the other fairies in the team were very helpful in making recommendations and answering questions to help us prepare. We would happily book them again for a future celebration.
