We had such a positive experience with Nick! He twisted balloons for our son's 4th birthday and it was the hilight of the party. He was so creative and a pleasure to work with. The kids had a blast! Very responsive, punctual and a great value. Highly recommend!!

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!

The Great Boodini was exactly what we wanted in party entertainment. He had a tough crowd with two Fire Departments in attendance, but his performance is world class. I would not hesitate hiring him 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. I have friends who are planning parties and now want to hire Russ! Looking forward to hiring him again next year for my son's next birthday, thank you Russ!

Such an amazing artist, all of the face paints looked great. I had tons of comments and questions about where i found her, and who she was. I of course passed along the information. I truly want to thank Saharas Party Faces, for a great job and making my daughters birthday a success!

We had Emil for our wedding on February 20, 2015. He was right on time and started taking pictures right away. He was extremely awesome. He was showing me the pictures as he was taking them to show me what we needed to do to get the best pictures. We gave him so little to work with and he was extremely creative. We were missing people from the wedding party and instead of wasting time, he just started taking more pictures. we can't wait to share the pictures with our family and friends. My husband and I were trying to go low cost, and we got a bargain. Thank you Emil for helping make our special day so smooth and worry free. And for putting up with my insane bridal party and family!

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 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.

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!

Mark was professional, courteous and easy to deal with. Our first phone conversation with him assured us that we were dealing with a professional. He explained his services and helped us choose the best package. As promised, Mark arrived early, set up his things without any hassles and was flexible to start a few mins late while the party guests were still arriving. The show was a huge hit with all attendees - kids and adults alike! Mark engaged the audience well with not only magic but also funny conversations. All in all, it was a great birthday party.. thanks to Mark!
