Ashley is amazing! We hired Ashley for face painting and balloon art for our son's 5th birthday party. We had over 30 preschool-aged kids at the party. Those that had their face painted or held a balloon creation had huge smiles on their faces and were absolutely delighted. Thanks Ashley for making our son's birthday party a wonderful experience for all!

Jennifer did and incredible job for our daughter's 3rd birthday party. She is so great with kids and really helped even the shy ones give it a try. A lot of the adults got in on the fun, too! Her work is so beautiful. I have never seen someone do such intricate work on such little kids. Everyone agreed it was the best face painting experience they had ever had! I highly recommend her!

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!

Danny is one of the most creative persons I have met. His ideas are always fresh, new, as he contemplates the possibilities for any occasion. You can almost see his brain in action as he lights up with ideas and suggestions. Delightful surprises appear in the results of his presentations. If a problem develops on the event day, he confidently and quickly figures out a solution and puts it to work. He has his clients interests at heart and is friendly and reliable in all that he does. It is obvious, he loves his work! Bobbi Hennessey

Alan is so great. He will talk with you to get an idea of his audience so that he can prepare the best possible event for you beforehand. He's full of energy and jokes. You're in for a treat. My friends and the birthday boy of the party (who dabbles in magic himself) were all blown away by Alan's skill. We're still not sure how he did some of these tricks! Alan's very charming and a welcome guest to any event you have planned, not just for his magic skills, but for the incredible energy he brings. His rate is outstandingly reasonable for the service he will give you.

Daniel did a great job at our son's 16th birthday party. With 20+ teenagers and parents, he was able to make some amazing balloon creations. The large, wearable unicorn and giraffe animals were incredible. They were over 5' long, and wrapped around one's body. The motorcycle that wrapped around the waiste was fun; it even had a flashing headlight! We have had balloon artists from his family at numerous events over the years. They are all fantastic.

WE had two person team come for our daughter's Elmo themed 2nd birthday party. One was a party leader and the other was dressed up in Elmo contume. The elmo was somewhat handicap by his costume and was mostly immobile. The kids has a good time and the party leader kept then engaged with magic tricks and balloon art. In short, Elmo was average and the party leader was great. All in all we are happy with our decision to go with All Star Showgrams.

    Dave is our all around hands down Bay area DJ that we always go to and refer our family and friends to when it comes to them asking for a DJ referral. His style is always current and he always has the line up of music. Looking forward to him at our daughter's 13th birthday party with her friends!

    Jeanine was wonderful! She was at our party for 90 minutes; she made amazing balloon animals and her face painting was the best I've seen. It was a dolphin-themed birthday (6th) party and she painted some absolutely gorgeous dolphins, etc. She arrived right on time and worked very quickly. She was definitely the key to the success of our party. I highly recommend her artistry and her professionalism!!

    Janice showed up ahead of time to get set up and patiently worked the whole show. She was An absolute delight to work with. She was dressed for the part in a clown like outfit that looked very whimsical and she entertained the adult children and actual children quietly all night while the show swirled on around her. Our event was a sixtieth birthday party for friends and family and Janice helped turn it from an event into a party. We look forward to hiring her again soon.

    Santa John is amazing! He's been coming to our home for the past 3 years for our Santa themed party. It's no surprise that he's the star. He is so good with all the kids (and we have about 30 of them of mixed ages from toddlers to grade schoolers). He makes everyone believe in Santa - even the parents and puts you in the Christmas spirit. He's also incredibly easy to work with to customize your event.

      We first saw Cassie’s Work at the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival where she painted my daughter’s face. It was so beautiful that I knew we had to have her come to paint faces at my daughter’s 4th birthday party. Cassie did a wonderful job getting the children to warm up to her and relax, and her designs were just wonderful! The theme of the party was Hello Kitty, and Cassie painted so many half-face Hello Kitty masks that she probably could see them in her sleep! I can’t say enough good things about Cassie...professional communication, punctual and such a joy to be around. 5-stars!

      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.

      I hired Estrella as a face painter for a special event for Amazon and she has even filled in for me at Facebook when I was unavailable. She is so sweet with the kids and families too. She is definitely an artist that will go above and beyond to make you happy. She also has an awesome open-air photobooth service. I hired her for my daughter's 5th birthday party. It's great to have space to add more to the picture and it also helps that the booth manager is sweet and engaging as well. I always receive great feedback from guests that she has worked with and I highly recommend her for any type of event.
