Absolutely great on all fronts. Came shed of time. The kids loved her balloons and face painting and the magic show was treat to adults and 4 year olds alike! Highly recommend.Feb 10, 2019Verified
Joolie was amazing. She came 10 minutes before time and she was very friendly. Her balloons and face painting were very nice and kids loved her magic show. She made my six year old's birthday party a fun filled one.Jul 30, 2017Verified
Joolie bagoolie was fantastic with all kids of a wide age range. Her face painting was very impressive as well as her balloon animals. If any balloons popped she fixed them without hesitation. When there weren't any kids left at her station, she took initiative to seek kids out to paint their face. Would definitely use her again! Very flexible with services and very responsiveJul 9, 2017Verified
Joolie did a great job with face painting and balloon making. The level of detail on the children who had their face painted was amazing and so was her balloon making. Many adults who attended the event even commented on what a great job she did. Joolie was punctual and professional; she had a line of kids from start to finish and she accommodated each and every one which put her beyond the time for which she was hired. I would highly recommend hiring her and look forward to hiring Joolie should we have events in the future.Jun 26, 2017Verified
She is sooo creative and imaginative and the kids loved her. Her face painting was outstanding! ( And excellent balloon twisting) I'd whole heartedly recommend her for any children's party.Oct 3, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My rate is $140 for the first hour of entertainment, and $120 for each additional hour. There may be a travel fee depending on distance traveled and toll crossed. *Please note that my rate is not negotiable.* What can be included in the booked time is dependent upon how many kids are at your event, the venue type, and other details about your event. We can discuss your party and figure out what entertainment would be the best fit and for how long. The minimum booking time is one hour.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First, we will discuss what entertainment will work best for your event, and figure how much time is needed based on the number of kids in attendance. We'll also discuss the age range of the kids, and what kind of venue your event will take place in. Once we figure out the details, I will send over a basic contract you can fill out with info about your party, and digitally sign. The contract also details my cancellation and safety policies. Once it's filled out, a copy will be automatically emailed to both of us. I will also collect a deposit, typically via Venmo, Paypal, Cash App, or Zelle bank transfer. The remainder is due at your event via cash, check, or any of the mentioned options. Once I receive the contract and deposit, then your booking is all confirmed! I'll keep in touch with you leading up to your party date. On the day of your party, I will text you when I'm on my way, and I'll always arrive with enough time to set up.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been entertaining kids of all ages at all types of events since 2011, across New England, New York, and in London, UK. I am also a highly trained and experienced theatre artist with an MA in ensemble theatre, and have trained, taught, and performed locally and internationally.
