FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    $150.00 for up to first hour, $100.00 per hour over....$50.00 per half hour. I tell my clients I don't charge for what I do, just the time required to do it! All magic, all balloons, or a combo of both....

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I make sure my clients know up front what my fee is, and if I do go over time, I don't charge extra...I'm usually having too much fun! If I don't have another gig to get to, I take my time and make sure all my kids get a balloon creation, if balloons are part of the show. I follow up with phone call or text to make sure we are on target for the show, usually a day before the event.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus, and School of hard knocks!
