Hi, Nick was absolutely wonderful by far the best balloon artist I have come across. Not only was he very patient with the kids but he knew how to make just about everything the kids and adults asked for... All the kids and adults just loved the balloons he made and he tried to make each one special. I would hire him for all my upcoming bday parties !! You will not be dissapointed at all. He was a HUGE HIT at my daughters birthday party... And I already have requests to pass his contact info from the guests who were at the party !! Just no words to would do justice to the work he does !!! Simply Outstanding !!! Shailaja

Nick is fantastic! Once he got to the party he got right to work entertaining my guests! EVERYONE absolutely loved him! He was funny and charismatic. He easily juggled twisting balloons and entertaining kids AND adults waiting eagerly in line for a balloon animal, sword, hat... you name it he made it! I highly recommend him as a balloon twisting entertainment person! Many people at my party said they will be using him for their party! I plan to do more business with Nick in the future! Such a great addition to our party! Thanks Nick for making Bella's first birthday special, and entertaining ALL of our guest!

Joe Stephen of Dtanding Ovation DJ is outstanding! His communication while planning our event was prompt and professional. We needed to change our event time the day before and Joe was flexible to that too. His song choices were prefect for our audience, he gladly took requests, and kept the dance floor rocking for us! Book Joe for your next event or party. You won't be disappointed on any level!

We haven't had our event yet as it is in March, but so far, I am so pleased! We are using Joe and Standing Ovations for a Karaoke party at my little boys residential facility for special needs. I can't wait! Joe has been so pleasant to work with and I can not wait for the event. I recommend this company for sure!

Grampy was very professional throughout our communication via email and by phone. Arrived to our party on time. Provided a great show, keeping both the kids and adults entertained. He had many tricks and there were many laughs, ooohs, and aaahs from the crowd. I highly recommend Grampy for your balloon twisting and magic show needs. If you're thinking about it, take it from me and book him right away. Grampy will be the highlight of your party and guests will be raving about him for days just as mine have! A+ show from Grampy!

We used VIP Photo Booth for my Mom's 60th Birthday party. They worked with us to form a package that met our needs and price range. Russ, the owner, worked with me to design the photo strip and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. The attendant at the party was on time, dress appropriately, and extremely friendly. He did a great job making the memory book and reminding people to write a message. Everyone at the party LOVED the props they brought and the whole photo booth experience. I would 100% use VIP Photo Booth again!!

Russ was wonderful! The photo booth and props were perfect for my son's 1st birthday party, he even brought stools for the kids to stand on since it was a kid party.

He is an amazing performer!!! He really knows how to attract children attention. Every kid at our daughter's birthday party was amazed and happy to have a chance to participate in the show. We had many entertainers every year for our little one's birthday but Great Boodini so far was the best one! Definitely we going to hire him again! Very professional, punctual and he responds very quickly for any questions. He offers variety of magical tricks/ shows for small and big kids.

We hired Susan to come and do Henna tattoos at our daughters 12th bday party this past weekend. It was a last minute decision, something we thought the girls may enjoy. Susan was one of the 3 quotes I received through thumbtack. I am thrilled to write that hiring Susan was the best decision we made for that party. Not only was she completely affordable, but her passion, and talent as an artist is amazing! Her henna tattoos were the best by far that I've ever seen. Not only were the girls at the party so happy with there henna tattoos, but the boys and even parents excitingly made there way to Susan to ask for designs too:)) lol! The party was a huge success! I will hire Susan again, every chance I have. Not only for the kids party's, but for all our gatherings, she had such a beautiful personality, and wonderful way about herself.. I received so many compliments from the children, and parents regarding Susan. Thank you so much again!!!:)

Worth every penny ... Had a birthday party for my 10 year old daughter, total of 25 girl's. I rented the photo booth for 3 hour. I honestly, thought that after one hour the girls will get bored and it was going to be a waste of money. Boy was I wrong, not only did they used the photo booth until the last minute, but they had a blast. I heard girl's saying " this is the best party I ever been to" Rick, was great to work with, very professional, responded to all my emails on a timely manner and inspired confidence from the first time we spoke. Amy, the photo booth attendant was, on time, amazing, funny and very attentive to the girls. I will most definitely use Pro DJs again for any future events. Thank you Rick and Amy for making Mia's birthday party a memorable one and a mom a super star!

Rick was very very Accommodating to any of my requests, he even dressed like Elvis for my 50's party. The variety of music was awesome. He brought his own party lights to really give a better atmosphere. I shared my vision and he made it happen. His prices where super competitive and he runs a good party, people danced the whole night and wished the party went on even longer, he stayed an hour beyond our agreed time. Too bad the venue wouldn't extend our party time. I would hire Rick again maybe with his photo booth option as well.

XOXO Photobox is fabulous! They just came to my best friend's surprise 30th birthday and made the party 100x better! Maria was so responsive to my emails and easy to talk to. She made sure that every detail was exactly personalized the way I wanted it - the design on the photostrips, the color of the background, the props, etc. At the event, Maria showed up an hour early to set up. She was so professional and great. She answered all questions. She set up the booth in the perfect spot in the venue. Throughout the event, she was wonderful with all of the guests, always smiling and friendly. I am so happy that I used XOXO Photobooth and I would definitely recommend them!!!

We had XOXO Photobox set up a photo booth for us at a 40th birthday party. I can't say enough good things about them!!! They were very responsive overall, prompt the day of the party, super friendly and everyone had a total blast in the photo booth. The quality of both the prints and digital files was really, really good and the animated GIFs were so hilarious thanks to fun props (and some booze - lol). Access to the digital files was provided the same night as the party and the birthday girl just adores her photo book that XOXO Photobox created for her during the party. Highly recommend! Cheers!

Maria & Brooke are fantastic! They are organized, professional and easy to work with. I hired them for my daughters 10yr bday party with 20 other 10yr olds. I was afraid the girls would be bored after 2 hrs but they could have gone on for another 2. Maria & Brooke were great with the girls! They went over and beyond my expectations.

We hired Vallene for our 7-year-old's backyard party and she was such a hit! We didn't really have a theme but Vallene was so great at working with us through the design process. We let her know we really love the artwork from Book of Life/Day of the Dead and she took it from there and create some beautiful original designs. Once she was set up, she was really great with the kids. The designs did not take too long to paint but they were all so beautiful and some were very intricate and detailed. Very high quality! Vallene is such a talented artist. The paint she used did not cause any irritation and the paint sets and will not rub off easily so the designs lasted all night. All the kids looked amazing! And it was such a pleasure having Vallene at our party! We highly recommend her and we would definitely hire her again.

I am so happy to have hired a true Face Painting artist for my party!! Ms. Wiggy came ready for the job. She offered a wide variety of designs that kids could chose from her catalog, full faces, cheek and arm painting. Even some people wanted special things out of the catalog and she "granted their wishes". She was very kind with the little ones and flexible with the time. Thanks Ms. Wiggy for a great party!!!

Karen and her husband were EXCEPTIONAL to work with! I wanted to book a photo booth for my father's 80th birthday party and did not come up with the idea until about a week before. I found KC through thumbtack, which I had never used before, and within minutes, Karen was answering all my questions and getting me set up. Karen was very responsive and made the entire experience wonderful. They were prompt, had plenty of props and were very cordial on site. I received many compliments on the photos and scrapbook and now my dad will have a memory book he can flip through to remember the party and everyone that attended! Thank you so much for adding to the overall celebration! You guys are an EXCEPTIONAL value as well! Keep up the great work!

Scott was OUTSTANDING at my son's 1st birthday party. He had a singalong with all the kids at the party and really engaged them! I was singing along as well, to be honest. After the singalong he patiently created such complex balloons, these are not your average balloon animals folks, he made both of my nephews Pokemon characters too! Scott was so pleasant and I will hire him again next year for my son's next birthday. Thank you so much, Scott!

We LOVED our DJ - Chris and his company. I had one guest ask for my play list and two others book parties off of him. He was hysterical and ran our reception like a party - just like I asked. From having each table sing for their meals to the limbo and conga line our wedding was one that everyone a month later is still talking about.

We booked my events and celebrations Photo Booth only 2 weeks prior to our July wedding. I love photo booths but wanted to make sure it would be within our budget based on final guest numbers before we booked. Thankfully, they were available and extremely responsive when it came to communication and making minor tweaks to the contract. The night of the wedding, their setup and operation were seamless. Our guests raved about the props and the photos that resulted from the booth. I highly recommend placing the open bar near the photo booth in order to encourage as many people as possible to take photos :). Ultimately, we were happy with my events and celebrations service and thought it was money well spent since everyone had such a good time. Definitely get the keepsake scrapbook - it was so fun to look through after we returned from the honeymoon. Such a great way to capture the photos and comments from guests! I highly recommend using this company​.

I recently booked my events and celebrations Photo Booth for my wedding and it was great! First off, it's an actual booth rather than just a curtain or tent set up​. Plus their props are amazing - astronaut and Viking helmets, mustaches, animal headbands, you name it! My wedding guests (especially the kids) LOVED the booth and Peter & Diana are so great to work with. They design a custom logo for the bottom of your reels and if you get the photo guestbook it's such a great and hilarious keepsake. I've been a guest at 20+ weddings and this is the best photo booth I've seen. If you need a photo booth in the Chicagoland area, choose my events and celebrations, you won't be disappointed.
