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!!

Standing Ovations did a wonderful job at my wife's 40th Birthday Bash. They played all the types of music and songs I requested and also made sure it was a family friendly song selection with no foul language. These guys were top notch professionals! !!

Dawn Marie was awesome. She's very professional on a personal level making my husband and I comfortable. We had a birthday party at a banquet hall for my children 1 year and 2 year old. It was a party for family and friends and children ages ranged from 8 months old to 9 year old plus me. Hehe I can't say enough how awesome and professional she was with everyone and she has a way with children that they are just drawn to her and her artistic talent. Everyone at the party wanted her business card and was impressed that I found her. Dawn Marie you are awesome. I hope this review will give everyone the chance to book you for their next party. I know I will and my family and friends will. Have a blessed healthy year. Thank you. CM

The highlight of our party was Aunt Nora! Birthday girl has asked multiple times since the party when aunt Nora can come again! Nora made everyone feel included even those kids we had in attendance who were a bit fearful of clowns. She is a definite "must have" for every childrens birthday party for sure!

My wife's 40th Birthday Party was a total success thanks to Hu's Assisting! All I had to do was give her a date and a guest list, Holly took care of the rest. She gave me options for a fun theme, I chose a Murder Mystery Dinner then relaxed while Holly created invitations, a menu including drinks and appetizers. She got a great deal on the chair and table rental, and the bartender and wait staff were Awesome! Hu's Assisting made me look like a Rock Star! Thanks Holly!

Scott is absolutely wonderful. We had him at our children's birthday party a few years ago, and since then many friends have used him at their kids birthday parties. He is wonderful with the kids. He is patient when they continue to come back for their 3rd, 4th, or 5th balloon animal. He recently donated his time for a fundraiser that we had and we cannot thank him enough. He stayed long after the agreed upon time and we could not be more grateful. Scott is wonderful and makes the party that much more fun with his balloon animals. The kids all love him!

I wish I could add more stars to the 5 star rating above, and for as many stars I would add they will be less for the appreciation that I have for Steve and his work and his magic that he spreads around when he is performing. We hired Steve for the magic show and balloons package for my daughter's birthday party and I admit it was so much FUN. Steve is so humble and nice and he was on time and the way he engages his audience is mesmerizing. We had 20 kids and some adults of all ages but not for a moment during the show were we taking eyes off him. He had everyone engaged including the birthday girl and her friends and the adults too. He was right on time with all his equipment and everything started as planned and where did that hour go by we don't know. He was so patient while making balloons for all the kids at the end of the party and took time to tend to everyone's needs. If money is on your mind while looking for a magician - lemme tell you he a very inexpensive package. If entertainment is on your mind - lemme assure you he is full on FUN, Excitement, Entertaining. For all in all he is your guy for all questions...you will never go wrong if you puck him.....he is a billions bucks in FUN. Thank you Steve for everything from the bottom of our hearts...

Don’t hesitate – choose Barney as your photographer! We had hired Barney for our Baby's 1st Birthday and he is incredible. He had a challenge with lighting at the venues but he did it with complete ease and style. The photos tell the story and bring back every feeling from our event and we look at them feeling laughter.He is truly talented and captured everything. We will treasure these forever. Thank you so much!!

We cannot say enough great things about Heidi and highly recommend her wedding services to any other couples! Heidi served as our wedding coordinator in September 2017 and she was worth her weight in gold so that we could have a relaxing and elegant wedding. Thanks to Heidi we were able to truly enjoy our time with all of our guests many of whom had traveled from Europe and across the US to be with us. On the day of the wedding Heidi did an incredible and efficient job running our early morning rehearsal which immediately put everyone participating in the ceremony at ease. She and her two assistants were then present at our venue throughout the day coordinating the vendors as they arrived, setting up decor, and bringing us our bouquets for photos. She even sent me a few photos of the cake and decor as sneak peeks as we were out and about all day with our wedding party. Once we arrived at the venue everything looked absolutely perfect and she even had water set up for the wedding party as we got ready to walk down the aisle (she also had water, snacks, pain killers and whatever else anyone needed!). During the evening wedding Heidi kept everything to schedule and moved the guests seamlessly throughout the venue from the ceremony to the cocktail hour to dinner to dancing. She worked closely with the photographer, caterer, and musicians to make sure everything went to plan. If anything went wrong during the day or evening we did not know about it! At the end of the wedding she and her two assistants packed up all our boxes of decor/cake/leftover alcohol and took it to our hotel so our family and friends were able to go back to their hotels or to the after party with no worries. In addition to the actual wedding day, Heidi was wonderful from day one. After we decided to work together we met with Heidi early in the summer and showed her around our venue. A couple of weeks before the wedding she also came to our final walkthrough with our caterer. We also had multiple check-in calls the week leading up to the wedding to go through final details. During the week before the wedding she was in touch with all of our vendors to introduce herself and to work out any details which took all vendor management out of our hands. In short, we had a very detailed schedule and notes of how we wanted our wedding to run and look and Heidi executed it with precision and even helped us think of details we might not have thought of ourselves. We had 60 guests and wanted a personal, professional, and elegant Chicago wedding. So many guests commented on how smoothly everything went during the day and how much they enjoyed the pace and look of the evening. We were a very happy bride and groom!

Aly was our day-of wedding coordinator and we could not be happier for having worked with her. She has a take-charge personality that's optimal if you're an introverted, people-pleasing person (like the bride was, in our case). The greenery we planned to use for cake decorating ran out at the last minute, and Aly sprang into action and discreetly collected some blooms from the bridesmaid bouquets to use instead. She also took care to check in with us throughout the day and get our approval on last-minute changes. I have no doubt that she smoothed out some bumps in our wedding day that we don't realize ever happened - she's that good.

I originally thought I was going to DIY my wedding but when Charlene answered my request I knew that was going to be the best decision I ever made to hire her. IT WAS! I am so glad I did not DIY my wedding. I would give Elegant Wedding Design 100 stars! She made my special wedding day more perfect than I could have ever imagined. People in my family were second guessing the event space I had chosen because it was small and they couldn't see the vision that I had. Charlene truly transformed the space into a beautiful, elegant and luxurious wedding venue. Every single one of my guests were blown away and in awe as soon as they stepped into the ceremony and saw Charlene's magical beauty she created. She was so engaging, kind and truly made sure every detail of my vision was accomplished. She gave great ideas and expertise. I trusted every decision she made. I love that she owned all of her own materials and had the perfect matching color for our wedding scheme. She did a site walk thru and planned everything with a layout. Her text and email correspondence was great! I could write two pages about how amazing she is and how you really need to make sure she is handling your wedding decor and design. As soon as my first phone call with her I could tell in my spirit she would make all of my dreams come true. and she did! I had the complete piece of mind from the moment I hired her. I was even worried because I WASNT worried about anything. She is like the fairy godmother that transformed Cinderella! I give her my highest review possible! Elegant Wedding Design is the best!

Zoltan with Bounce N Celebrations did an AMAZING job at my son's 3-year-old birthday party. We had about 35 kids between the ages of 2-8, and he was very patient, very professional, very engaging, and the kids absolutely LOVED his work! The glitter tattoos were the biggest hit, but the balloon swords and wands were not to go unnoticed - the kids loved those as well. Zoltan is extremely prompt and thorough. He got RIGHT back to me any time I called with a question or an update weeks before the party, he was very clear when he outlined what I should expect or needed to do, and he just made everything very simple and easy on my end. I felt in good hands and I could tell right away he was a reliable professional and person who I could trust. He is also very kind and reasonable and humble, and he is good with the kids. He didn't mind staying a little later so that some of the kids could get a balloon in addition to their tattoos, and when one child's balloon popped, he made another one even though the party was over and he had packed up all of his things. He didn't even bat an eye about it - it was his natural reaction to unpack and fix the problem. He was really perfect entertainment for our party, and we look forward to hiring him again. I strongly recommend Bounce N' Celebrations. Thank you Zoltan!!

We hired Val for my daughters 1st birthday party. She's just wonderful and we love her work so much. In the past I regret hirring other lower-priced face painters who didn't know how to paint well and worst of all they do not know how to interact with the kids. For me, it's very important to keep in mind how a face painter relates to the children. She's friendly, funny, clever, professional to work with, fast and incredibly talented. We love our experience with her and everyone else at the party did too. She's amazing and we love her very much. ?
