“I wanted to tell you Thank You. You did a wonderful job with the kid's faces and the stuffed animals were a huge hit. I was EXTREMELY pleased with your services. A lot of the kids told us this was the best party they had ever attended. Thank you for making it a success. It was so cute...some of the kids showed up at school with their animals the next day so they could sleep with them at nap time.”

"I just wanted to take the time to let you know that we enjoyed you guys yesterday! My son had a blast and everyone else did as well. He has been asking about you all day! He wants you to come back... and the slide as he calls it! He loves his tattoo. Thank you and your family for making his birthday so much fun and memorable! You do a great job and I will pass the word around to everyone we know how wonderful you are. Thank you so much!!

PS - My mom had a blast!"

“A job well done to you and your team! Our boys had an amazing birthday party! The array of services provided by your company brought our sports carnival theme to life! We received endless compliments on the balloon artistry, glitter tattoos, and the basketball and soccer inflatables. The music you provided further enhanced the playful atmosphere. As a host, I enjoyed watching the kids happily play together, parents freely socializing and families laughing and playing games together.”

“The inflatables, face painting and balloon art were a huge hit with kids and parents alike! I know it was a lot to coordinate and we are very thankful!”

“I wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did at the party. Everybody had a great time, both parents and children. Going through the pictures I can feel the energy in every shot. 

Thanks!! I will certainly be calling you again in the future and I am happy to spread the word about your wonderful business. Cheers”

“Hi Zoe, Just wanted to let you know that everyone is still talking about the party. You all really did an excellent job. My husband and I were very pleased and our daughter and son had a blast.

You really took a lot of planning stress away and everything went perfect!”
