Jennifer did an amazing job at our children's birthday party. She arrived early and was very professional. She had a great manner with the kids and made everyone happy. She carefully painted over 20 faces in the jungle theme we requested and everyone looked adorable! She was a hit!!

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!

Andy was awesome! I hired Andy for my son's 9th birthday party and not only were the kids all stunned, the adults were as well. He performed a kid friendly show with some good humor for all ages. Andy met us at our house, right on schedule, and performed right on schedule....for a good, almost hour which was just the right amount of time for the audience to be amazed but still wondering! Andy was very professional but very down to earth and super easy to work with. I don't think I would change anything, honestly, we had a great time and my son will definitely be talking about this for the next months! =)

The artist we booked really made the whole party. He came dressed as a ninja, delighted the kids with ninja skills, magic, balloons and so on. He happily stayed an extra 30 minutes to finish balloons for every child. He was polite, talented and fun. What more could you want for a kids party.

Alan is great! Easy to work with and very reasonably priced. We hired him for our 25th wedding anniversary party. It was a small group - 22 people - and he entertained everyone while people were arriving and mingling and then after lunch put on a great show for everyone. He was funny and talented.

Henna Pub was a huge success at my daughters 13th birthday party. The girls Loved it. Henna Pub was very professional, kind and amazing with her talent. I was so impressed with how quickly she did her artwork on each girl and had no problem working through 17 or so tattoos in a 2 hour period. Beautiful work. I highly recommend Henna Pub!

We had Fantastic Fred perform at my daughter's 1st birthday party (lunch event). We hired him or 1 hour. He did balloons for the kids and majic for the adults. His wow-ed the adult crowd (including myself) with his majic and the kids (age 2-7) enjoyed the balloons. The only reason why I am giving 4 stars (instead of 5) is because we had 8 tables and ~ 3 tables did not get to see him perform (I asked a couple of my friends if they liked the majic and they said the magician did not come to their table). I left it up to Fred to decide whether he wanted to do table side majic or perform center stage (since Dan, owner, said they are professionals and would know what was best for the group/event). To be fair, I think one of my tables "hogged" up Fred's time from the other tables. We hired Fred for one hour and he did stay a little over to do magic for one of the tables and make an extra balloon for one of my guests. Maybe I should've hired him for longer? For the tables that got to experience Fred tableside, they were very, very, very impressed with Fred. I would definitely hire Fred again for my event. Since my daughter's first birthday was mostly adults (50 adults) my goal was to make sure they enjoyed their time as well (I didn't want them to get bored at a "kiddy" birthday party). The only thing I would change was that I wish Fred performed "center stage" in front of everyone. He mentioned to the group in the beginning that he does not like to perform while ppl are eating, but in hindsight I wish he performed in front of everyone (while they were eating lunch) for 15 mins, so everyone would've got to enjoy him. I would definitely hire

We hired Natasia for face painting this last weekend and she was a hit! The girls loved her designs and she even had matching stick on gems! She was able to move quickly through the line of girls and finished about 25+ in 2 hours. I am very happy with the Party Artists and would book them again!

About

Entertaining children is an art and not a lot of people are gifted with the talent of capturing their attention for hours and leaving them entertained and happy. I devote time and effort to make sure that the kids get the party they want and deserve and the parents or the party planners get value for the money they spend. I love working with kids!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
