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!

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!!!!

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!

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 .

Julie was great at Melofys 5th birthday party! She did face painting and an interactive story adventure with magic tricks. The kids ranged in age from 1 to 12 and she was able to keep them all engaged!!!! Great job Julie!!!

Ginger is so talented at face painting. I have been to many children's birthday parties with face painters and have never seen designes like hers. She took her time and gave the kids exactly what they asked for. The balloon twists were a huge hit too. Ginger was accommodating to our situation of large party in a not too large house. She sent up outside on a brisk day and kept the kids out of a crowded house. We would recommend her to anyone.

Helix did a great job. She arrived on time and did full face painting and all the kids loved the pictures they got. The price was reasonable and she was accommodating with the price based on the number of kids. I will highly recommend her.

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.

We have nothing but great things to say about our experience with Studio Event Staffing - they came to do face painting and balloon animals at our block party. They were a pleasure to deal with and the kids loved them. We will definitely hire them again!
