James is a bonafide artist. He came with a beautiful birthday cake balloon ready to go, and the kids had such a wonderful time watching him. Traffic was bad, so James got there right on time, which meant he had to move into action quickly. He took like 30 seconds to set up, and did so many kids in just one hour. His creations are gorgeous, and he is a wonderful guy. I highly recommend James. We hired him for our 5 year-old's birthday party, but there were some older kids there who similarly loved watching him work his magic.
