Alexandra from DC Face Painting was awesome! She was very punctual and quickly engaged the children when she arrived. We live in Fairfax county, VA and booked her for 2 hours. About 10 mothers came up to me during the party and asked me where I had found her because they were so impressed with her art work and how fast she worked. The children in our group ranged in ages from 1-6 years and we had LOTs of kids at the party (about 50 kids). She quickly worked on each child and the results were fantastic!! The photos on the website do not do justice to the art work when you see it in person....she did an amazing job and great designs on the children. She also made balloon animals, etc. and kept the childrent excited. Her prices are also extremely reasonable!! We will definitely book her again for our next party!! She deserves the 5 stars!!

We hired Sam C. for face painting and balloon artistry services for our Community Fall Festival. The artists were both professional, kind to all the children, and created fantastic face paint designs. The balloon artist designs were so unique and often looked complicated. Absolutely what we were hoping for! We will definitely hire them again. Only suggestion would be for them to arrive and start set up 15 minutes prior to the event.

Brenda did my daughters circus themed bat mitzvah this past weekend. It was a high end affair with other performers such as stilt walkers and she fit right in. Her balloon headbands, hats and everything else are of amazing quality. Her balloons were a huge hit and loved by the teens and little ones and even the adults. She was super sweet and patient with all the kids. I would recommend her for any affair.

Two days before our daughter's 10th Carnival Birthday Party, I reached out to Thumbtack for a Magician to entertain our guests. Mr. Michael Chamberlin promptly responded to the request within a couple of hours. His bio, resume and prior performances and experiences were very impressive. We hired Michael to perform a Magic Show for her party held on 10/13/13. The party consisted of about 30 children and 25 Adults. Michael presented an excellent Magic Show engaging both the children and adults. The birthday girl really enjoyed it as well as everyone present. The children and adults were still talking about the show long after Michael had left. He was very professional, cordial, and entertaining. I am so glad that he responded to my Thumbtack Magician Request. Michael truly is a great Magician and an excellent entertainer who was capable of capturing, engaging and drawing in his entire audience from start to finish. His Magic Show was amazingly top notch. It was energizing from beginning to end. We laughed a lot and were amazed by his magical talents. We all loved his show. Thanks Again! R/Hope Fenstermacher

We had an event with hundreds of people and they were fantastic. Each face was painted quickly and efficiently, while providing art that the children loved. Both artists were very accommodating to us and the patrons. We couldn't have had a better experience and we can't wait to work with them again!

Face painting was great. The kids loved it at our client appreciation pumpkin fest event. Only disappointment was we had scheduled 2 entertainers to provide both face painting and caricatures. One got sick and couldn't come.

Captain Allstar was a fantastic magician and entertainer for my daughter's 5th birthday party! He's super friendly and fun. He was really great at engaging all the kids and keeping them active and involved. My friends and I joked that Captain Allstar would be a great elementary school teacher and we'd love to have our kids in his class! :-) The kids ranged in age from under 1 yr to 11yrs (the majority were 4-6yrs), and Captain Allstar was remarkable at keeping them all interested and entertained during his entire 45-minute show. They laughed at his antics and tricks and had a great time. He even had a "dance break" to get the kids up and moving at one point, which was great for the young kids who need to be busy and bouncing! I was also impressed by how well he remembered the kids' names as he incorporated them all into his show! He tried to give all of the kids a chance to participate or help in some way, which was awesome. My daughter the Birthday Girl was his special "assistant" the entire show and she loved it! He did a great job of making her feel special on her special day. We were super happy with his entire show!

James is incredible! I can't even remember how many times guess asked "where did you find this guy? He's awesome!" His work is above and beyond other balloon artists I've seen. He's a little more expensive than others but so worth it! I'll definitely be using James again in the future. Thanks again!

Royal Entertainment is the best One Stop party shop around. They offer a variety of event services. Their staff is very professional. They were on time and are reasonably priced. The Mascots really bring out the party. The parents and kids had a really good time. I highly recommend them for your event needs.

We ended up with Dan when our first magician called out on us on Thursday for the party Saturday. They say things happen for a reason. This magician DAN was the MAN of the hour. He was GREAT!! Even the adults had fun. I would recommend him for any party, wedding, office or what ever your gig. I didnt mind lossing out on another well rated magician, this one was TOPS! I will be using him again at our next event!!
