First, let me start off by stating that from all of my prior experiences with face painters/ party entertainers, Magical Teamwork Entertainment was absolutely the best that I have ever experienced! If I was able to give more than 5 stars, I would! Dennis and his wife are an amazing team. While Dennis created amazing balloon sculptures, his wife performed the face paintings which perfectly complemented each balloon sculpture. He even created a pretty impressive "balloon hat" for me and his wife offered to paint my face as well, which no other face painter has ever done. From my prior experiences, the services is usually just limited to the children, so I though it was really nice of them to include me in the face painting experience. I was extremely impressed and amazed with both the creative balloon sculptures and face paintings. My guests just as impressed as I was. Will definitely use them again in the future.

Michelle was the perfect touch for my daughters 4th B-Day party at her day care. Michelle was extremely professional, prompt, polite, patient and most of all perfection with her face painting. Each child enjoyed very much there design of choice and they were all done PREFECT. Michelle is absolutely the real deal. Sometime you come across face painters that do a fast sloppy job... this is NOT Michelle. I encourage that you hire Michelle for your next celebration. Thanks, Jules*

We had the best experience for our daughter 1st birthday party. Elvis is great!!! Was there on time, he did manage to work in the space we provided without complaining, his work is gorgeous (and we have a lot of other face painters to compare) and he did also entertain the youngest kids with the lovely baloons. Highly recommend and would use it again for sure. Thank you

Have you ever been into a children's event and witnessed hundreds of happy children after having their faces painted by an amazing artist? If your answer is no then you haven't seen Brenda because that is precisely what she does. I needed two face painters for one of my events and she proved to be an exceptional artist. I heard from many people that they were very happy with the way Brenda treated the kids, her nice approach to them, and her amazing skill. My client was very happy with her and she already asked me to save the date for next year's event! Thank you for an amazing job! I hope to keep working with you!

Sara worked with us for an event at the Bridgewater Lord & Taylor. She was on time, incredibly professional, and ready for anything! With such a large scale event, there is no guarantee if there will be one child or one hundred. She was prepared for either! It was wonderful seeing the joy on the children's faces as they chose their face paint style from her book. This is also one of the best priced face painters I have ever worked for. I really feel as though we got a great bargain for our event. We would absolutley hire again. Thanks so much Sara!

Lulu's face painter Joanna was amazing! She arrived early with a beautifully painted face of her own and a book full of fun, artistic and creative sample faces she could do. This group of 5 year olds had a lot of random requests that were not in the book (orca whales and baby dragons, for example) and she said yes to everything and did an exquisite job on all. In addition to her face painting skills, she was really nice and friendly. I would recommend Joanna to anyone looking for a party face painter!

The idea was to hire Quixotic for the large number of children at our company event and have them as face painters and balloon artists--the work was so flawless, parents were even getting in line for artwork themselves!! Their work was on point, the kids all loved them, and it was so wonderful to have them. Any time we plan to have another family event, we won't think twice about who to hire!!! Thanks again, Quixotic Fiestas!!!!

We were a small church with limited funds that wanted to give back to our community and you made the experience phenomenal. We got so much for what we paid that I am still in awe; from the magic show with the bunny rabbit, the shave ice, face painting with multiple levels of difficulty and detail, was amazing. I could not ask for more other than just say thank you so much .

Heliz made the entire process incredibly smooth. She was very accommodating, even though I requested a face painter less than 24 hours before my event. Communication was prompt and clear. Rosely is the one who came to the event. She was a pleasure to work with. Her face painting was excellent and far exceeded my expectations. She was great with the kids and I will definitely be hiring her again!

Cynthia is a thorough professional and kind hearted. At my son's birthday, she went above and beyond to make sure all the kids at the party had a fabulous time with face painting and balloons. She was an instant favorite with the kids. She will definitely be part of my next party.

Krissy was great. She has a lovely calm and yet super fun energy and really made my daughters 7th birthday party special. She is tremendous value for money as she has a whole bag of tricks up her sleeves to keep the little ones occupied and happy. As soon as she left they all started running around and creating chasos. So I realised what a great influence she had been. She broad beads, face paint and is the most talented face painter ans balloon modelling artist I had ever encountered ! It all seems effortless. What a talented lady.

Jax has done face painting at a number of parties I have had for my daughters, and we have been extremely pleased with her work and her professionalism. Jax is very patient with kids, and extremely skilled at face painting. She is able to create many kinds of looks and styles. She also has a great work ethic. At the last party I hired her for, she made more than 30 balloon favors ahead of time, and stayed well past the time we had agreed on to make sure that every kid was able to get his or her face painted. She has a positive attitude and is always very flexible. I highly recommend her!

She was amazing ! Her face painting and ballon twisting were above and beyond the regular . She arrived on time and her act was flawless . My daughter was a bit hesitant towards lulu since she's only two but lulu knew how to approach her and make her part of the festivities . Amazing with kids and highly recommend her . She even incorporates a real bunny I to her magic show. She was fantastic and I will def book her again in the future .

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
