Dawn Marie was amazing! She did balloon animals and face painting for my little guy's first birthday. She appealed to a pretty wide range of kids. The youngest to get a balloon animal was 8 months and the oldest was 6. The adults loved it too! I was worried that the facepainting would be a mess but the paint she uses doesn't rub off if the children touch their faces. I hugged several kids with their faces painted and nothing rubbed off on my shirt. This was my first time hiring any kind of entertainment for a party and it was a great experience. She was really great with the kids and it added a special touch to our party. I will definitely use her again in the future and I would highly recommend anyone else to do the same.

We were celebrating my son’s first birthday party which was Sesame Street themed. We asked for the Elmo costumed character and he was perfect! They arrived on time and Elmo was very lively and great with the kids! Our son absolutely loved him!!! Overall a really great experience and we will definitely be using Funtime Services in the future!

Andrew put on a great show for some really excited kids. We were originally just going to do balloon animals but we were so happy we decided to go with the both Magic show and balloon animals. He kept their attention with jokes, magic and fun. He even had the parents laughing at the jokes. The magic was perfect for our group of 3-7 yr olds. Three days later and my son is still talking about the magic tricks and special birthday surprise Andrew did for him. Truly a great show for everyone.

I had the pleasure of working with Shannon for my 30th birthday party. She graciously offered to be my private dj at the bar AliveOne in Chicago. She was amazing! Not only did she have her own fun style, but she played every song I specifically requested and got everyone on the dance floor! When my party was done, the house dj came to spin and cleared out the room. He could not compare! Everyone wanted Shannon to keep spinning, she was rocking it! I'm so glad I found her and would recommend her for any event!

Jeffrey has performed for many guests at my house during get togethers. He is not only a very good magician, but he is funny and kind as well. I would highly recommend Jeffrey for birthday parties for big and small, holiday get togethers, or anything where you want to laugh and be amazed!

Paul Lee is the best magician I have ever seen in person. He's done magic tricks just a few inches away from me and I can't figure out how he does it. I am going to have him perform at my birthday party this year because I want all my friends to see him.

Thanks, again Kathy

It was great to work with Brent in creating a great birthday celebration for my daughter's 10th birthday. Brent is a professional that is very organized; did appropriate level of follow up in preparation for the event. The event was very successful. All my guest (young and not so young) enjoyed the show very much.

We had Sweet Patootie for my granddaughters 5th birthday party on November 16th, 2013. I found Sweet Patootie just that "SWEET"! The 20 kids loved her and had so much fun! She was here for a hour and a half. Made balloons and remade them when several little ones kept popping them. We danced, danced, danced! She was so much fun, I even got up and danced with her and the kids. My granddaughter really loved having her here. Thank you for making her Birthday special! We were happy you had time to stay for cake!

The "Classy Clown" did my granddaughters Birthday Party and all we cab say is WOW! The kids were in awe and the balloon and face painting was amazing. The kids will be talking about this one for a very long time. I think "The Classy Clown" was the best tutor I could have in passing the grandpa test.

Steve was an awesome DJ to have. I am very indecisive but yet picky. I pretty much let Steve lead everything about the music with me only picking out the main songs for the wedding. I was very happy with the music at my wedding. I had a lot of compliments on how the music was great for dancing. It's always hard to get people on the dance floor in the beginning, but he got them out there, and once they were out there, he kept them out there.

I just came across this profile page and wanted to add a review.... You want to have a perfect event, you need to use Always Perfect Special Events. Tonya is the most wonderful, organized and efficient planner you could ever use. Not so long ago Always Perfect did my daughter's bridal shower, wedding and also my parents 50th anniversary party. Tonya took care of all the research, planning, booking and when it came to the event Tonya, Steve and her staff did everything and let us enjoy the event. I cannot say enough how excellent Tonya (and Steve) are as event planner and also are just wonderful, caring people.

Combine that with her ebullient warm and genuinely enthusiastic personality and concern for every guest she "decorates" as well as each client she services - and you have the perfect "picK' for the person who would design the best for ones guests! It's a pleasure to share our industry with her talents.

The experience we had with A couple of Clowns was AMAZING! Suzie showed up and immediately the kids flocked to her. Her face painting was MAGNIFICENT! We had at lease 10 kids from ages 2-11, she grabbed their attention, they participated, she did magic tricks, etc. It was sooo much fun, even the adults enjoyed it. I don't know who enjoyed it more, the adults or the children. I recommend A COUPLE OF CLOWNS any day! P.S. I was a bit concerned because I have a grand daughter who is very picky & shy, not a people person, not very easy to please or have her participate, even to get her to laugh. she had a BLAST! Suzie certainly have a way with kids & entertaining them and getting them out of their shell. THANKS Suzie/A couple of clowns for making our children's birthday party FUN! FUN! FUN!

I watched her do several parties, as well as helping take pictures. She is very into her character, the kids always seem to be attentive to her stories and games and I was surprised how they also love the activities with the props she brings. They just shine with excitement and have the time of their life and would probably let her stay all day long if allowed! Definately adds fun memories to a kids birthday celebration!.. Making them the star of the day.

We were guests at a kid's birthday party with a face painter/balloon twister from that company. He was great with the kids, explained what he's about to do, made sure kids chose their favorite tattoo or balloon shape, offered many choices. The host invited him to go eat, but he said that he'd eat when he's done. When he didn't have a line, he even went around the tables to offer tattoos to kids, for which he brought his materials with him. I was very impressed by that! Also, he was a really good face painter! I got his card and am planning on hiring him or a princess from the company for my daughter's birthday party.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
