Jenna was amazing! She was very professional and patient with all the kids! She was at my party for the full two hours and she was painting kids non stop. One was always kids there when she was free. Thankfully all the kids were great and wasn't scared (since most of the kids at my party was 3-4 years old.) My daughter had a Frozen Party and Jenna was ready with some winter themed styles but she also had different styles incase the kids wanted something different (which most of them wanted.) I know that at least 3 different people asked about her and wanted her card! I was a first time customer so Jenna gave me a discount, but that was wonderful because that was right in my budget and to tell you the truth, was way lower than what she is worth!! For any future birthdays that may need a Face Painter or entertainer of some sort, I will definitely be using Jenna again!

We hired Jenna through fb after seeing her work. She is so talented! She's like a one girl show! Face painting was really beautiful on each child wacky hair was hilarious, the kids really enjoyed it and it was amazing to watch her whip out so many different balloons idk how she did it! We will definitely have her back for years to come and have referred her to many friends. With rates like hers its no wonder she books fast. 5 stars for sure.

I had several friends over to thank them for helping me move into my new condo. The magic show was the entertainment after dinner. Kristoff put on a fabulous show! My friends said it was the best party they had been to in a very long time!

Kristoff was amazing! I hired him as a surprise guest for our company party. His humor along with the great magic was a fantastic addition to our party. Everyone loved his show and being a part of his tricks. All around excellent!!

His act sent me back to church! Making things appear and disappear in front of me, while I'm sitting less than a foot away, is otherworldly. Terrific entertainment!

If I could rate it 10 stars, I would! We had such a great time with Lori. She is more than just a face painter. She had the kids giggling, and even the little ones sat captivated and still while she painted, talked and sang to them. I was impressed with both how fast she was and how great the designs were. Lots of parents came up to me to thank me for having her here. Note, she wasn't the cheapest face painter we found but she was well worth it. In fact, we have already reserved her for next year's picnic! Thank you for a great experience.

A Touch of Magic is a FIRST CLASS ACT on all levels!! I could not have been more happy with their amazing face painting, totally FUN balloon animals, AND their stage show, Mixed Nuts got roars of laughter from a wide range of ages as well! I see why they are the 'go to' party/picnic entertainment experts! Thanks again, Tracy H.

Mike was a great magician and balloon artist. He did very well entertaining both children and adults. He arrived early to our event and stayed past his scheduled time. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is putting together an event or party and I would like to hire him again for future events. Grace S.

Mike was a great balloon artist. He was early to the event and stayed way past the time he was supposed to be there. He even integrated some magic onto making the balloons. I will for sure be booking him again for another function. He was very professional!

Lorraine is GREAT to work with as we have used Happy Faces for our annual company picnic for the last few years. The Face Painters and Caricature Artists are always well received an do a great job! This year we added a balloon twister which was a great hit as well! Always on time & very easy to work with!

Roger, Clearly, captured my staff's attention with his authentic wit, style & originality. Roger connects with his audience & allowed my me & staff to participate in amazement. I would recommend Roger for any event, he will customize it to your audience. I wish we had more time with him given our limited event duration. A must hire & worth our investment. You won't be disappointed!!! Director K.

Mr. Wells is extraordinary. He interacts with an audience in an endearing and unintusive way while managing to surprise, entice and entertain. His personality is gregarious, welcoming and entrancing. I’ve had the privilege of seeing him a couple of times and I highly recommend the experience!

Tom has worked with our summer program the last several years to offer magic camps to young budding magicians. He has been great to work with, his camps are always a hit, and the kids are thrilled to show off their new found talents at the end of the week (and often times at the end of each day) to an eager audience. Highly recommend!

Of the hundreds of entertainers at our venue, Tom has been the most professional, engaging and flexible. Tom developed a custom routine, precisely tailored to our needs, performed with finesse and skill, and most importantly was loved by our guests. He received laughter, applause, and nightly standing ovations.

David did his kids show for my daughters 6th birthday. We had at least 15 kids ages, four to ten (even a few younger, and he held their interest too). He was on time to the venue, and started the show at the time agreed upon. He immediately had the children quiet and focused on him, then he had them all laughing at his jokes. For the age group at the party he held their attention so good. No one grew bored, or antsy. He made the birthday girl feel extra special, while including everyone else too. Everyone including the adults were laughing and engaged. The magic show was the best part of the party, and the only time I could sit and breathe because all of the focus was one him. My daughters school and daycare friends talked about the show for days. David is a total professional and great at what he does. I would definitely book him again, and recommend him to anyone looking to entertain from kids to adults.

About

I am a determined nineteen-year-old who loves to work with makeup and bring joy with my singing. I'm trying to expand my experiences in either two interests independently. For most of my life, my dream was to pursue a career or continually do what I love because it makes me happy. I hope that sharing what I love with others will make them happy too. I'm new to the business. I have dreams, and I'd love to make them come true!

I'm an entertainer, specializing in balloon creations for all ages. I am available for birthday parties, company events, wedding receptions, family reunions, or anywhere people want to be amazed and delighted.

About

I am an entertainer, not a clown making balloons, engaging people with stories, jokes, and guessing games about the creation being, including trivia and facts about the animal being made. My balloon creations are fun, interesting, and cute. One of the most common difficulties is trying to decide which of the many charming creations to get. Most of the items can be made in less than 2 minutes and is fun to watch coming to life. I do not make swords (or weapons) but substitute creations, such as a fishing rod with a small fish or some other creation.
