Janice did both face painting and balloon twisting for my daughter‘s 5th birthday party - really detailed and beautiful face painting, and the balloons were special too! Multiple parents at the party told me how wonderful she was. My older 8 year old daughter asked for her at her next party :-). Highly recommend and would use her again.

Details: Birthday party • 11 - 20 guests • 4 - 6 years old • 7 - 10 years old • Simple balloon twisting (e.g., one-balloon dog) • Face painting is needed

I cannot recommend The Sparkly Monsters Club enough! Janice came for my daughter’s 1st birthday that had about 20 kids to do face painting and balloon artistry. She was extremely responsive and helpful when booking, was on time, and the quality of work was truly amazing, to the point where even the adults were getting their face painted and requesting balloons! She is a true artist it was amazing to see! The kids had an absolute blast and parents are still talking about how great she was. I will definitely be reaching out again for future events!

Details: Birthday party • 71 - 100 guests • 4 - 6 years old • Younger than 4 years old • Simple balloon twisting (e.g., one-balloon dog) • Detailed balloon art (uses several balloons) • Face painting is needed

Everything was wonderful! Janice was great! She arrived on time, she looked amazing, her set up was great, and her designs were next level. The face paint options were awesome, great detail, and came out beautifully for both boys and girls. Her balloon art was also great, incredibly detailed, and not basic…really fun stuff for the kids!! Thank you for making my sons birthday so special!

I originally hired Jan for my son’s birthday party but unfortunately she could not attend due to a huge snow storm on the day of the party. However, I am extremely satisfied with Jan’s professionalism throughout the booking process. She was very responsive, and kind enough to return my deposit which I appreciated. Jan was ready to go and even had pre-made balloons for my son’s party matching his theme. I really hope I get to work with her in the future.

Details: 11 - 20 guests • 4 - 6 years old • 7 - 10 years old • Birthday party • Balloon twisting • Glitter tattoos

Janice was excellent. She worked well the kids. Our theme was Frozen and she was able to make Frozen theme balloons. Everyone loved the balloons! She kept the children entertained and happy. We will definitely recommend her and use her at our future parties.

FAQs

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

    Pricing for private parties is hourly and travel fees are calculated at $.60/mile roundtrip from the Brooklyn Bridge. If you are holding a festival or other public event, please ask about my alternative payment structure (small deposit to secure services and then direct-from-customer pay per face on the day). To officially book a date, I require a deposit and a signed contract.

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

    I love to get to know my clients a little bit - what designs are they looking for? Is this a themed party? How many children? Then once we settle the fine points, I will send my contract and deposit information. Both a signed contract and deposit are required to book the date. Final payments are due the day prior to the event.

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

    I trained at the Makeup Designory for makeup and worked NBC Universal’s Trolls the Experience as a face painter.
