Where do you entertain?
I entertain in Austin, TX and surrounding areas including Round Rock, Pflugerville, Georgetown, Cedar Park, Leander, Lakeway, Dripping Springs, Buda, and Elgin. I will travel up to 45 minutes outside of the Austin area, but travel fees may apply.
What is your age range?
Ages 1-8. I offer various shows designed for babies, toddlers, preschool-age and young elementary. Currently I do not have a show for older children, but one is in the works.
Can you make balloons or face paintings to fit my theme?
Yes! Let me know your theme beforehand and I’ll offer balloons that fit your party’s needs. Whether it’s Mickey Mouse, Frozen, Hello Kitty, or Minecraft I offer hundreds of different designs and characters. With over a decade of balloon twisting, there’s rarely a balloon I can’t make.
Can you describe your magic show?
My shows are fast-paced, interactive and super silly! Whether it’s rubbing colors off their clothes, making candy ‘soup’ together, playing a trick on Silly Sparkles – they will love doing magic with me!
Where can you perform?
Indoors OR outdoors! Please make sure you don’t have distractions during the show! That means NO FOOD (I’m pretty sure you don’t want to clean up smashed cake on the floor), no TV’s turned on, no loud music. These things distract children from the magic and make it difficult to enjoy a live show.
Do you perform outdoors in the summer?
Yes; but an extreme heat fee may apply ($50). Extreme heat (95+ degrees) is tough on your guests, tough on my equipment and tough on my health. Performing a show and balloon twisting is like running 3 miles – not advisable in extreme Texan heat!
Do I need to provide anything for you?
Nope! I bring all my equipment necessary including a table and chair. All you need to provide is an open space and smiling kiddos.
Are your face paints safe?
Yes! I use FDA approved cosmetic grade paint which is a combination of paraffin wax, pigment and a preservative to prevent bacteria from growing. It’s made for your face. Never hire a face painter who uses craft or acrylic paint. It may be non-toxic, but it is not made for your skin.
How do I book you?
Call or email making sure your time and date are available. Next, you’ll receive a link where you can pay the 50% deposit online. You’ll receive a confirmation email after paying the deposit.
I called and asked if you were available for my event, does this mean you're booked?
Your event is not booked until you make a deposit and you receive a confirmation e-mail from me.
Can you refund my deposit?
Deposits are non-refundable. If your party is cancelled or rescheduled, your deposit will apply to any party booked within a 1 month time period from the original date.
What time should I have you come to my party?
Half an hour after the party starts. This way you don’t waste time or money waiting for guests to arrive.
How do I pay my remaining balance?
By cash, check or credit card at or before the party. Keep in mind: parties can get hectic! You may not want to pause to search for your checkbook and a pen or awkwardly count cash in front of guests. I’d recommend prepaying the night before so you have one less thing to worry about at the party! Or, you can pay after the party (a $15 convenience fee is added).
What if more kids show up without RSVPing?
If your headcount unexpectedly increases at the party, you can either upgrade your party package to include extra time ($25-$50 upgrade). Or, if you must stick within the original time frame let me know as soon as possible so I can offer simpler balloons and face painting to accommodate the extra children ($25-$50 upgrade).
Should I tip?
Tips are always appreciated but never expected. If you feel like I exceeded your expectations, a $20-$50 tip is typical.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule?
Emergencies happen! Should your event be postponed to a later date due to illness, I would be happy to reschedule. While the deposit cannot be refunded, it will always apply to any party you book with me up to 1 month after original party date.
What if it rains the day of my event?
If it rains I’ll be happy to reschedule your event but it is subject to my availability. If you are planning your event outdoors, you MUST have a backup rain location. If you do NOT have a backup rain location then a COMPLETE, nonrefundable payment will be due at time of booking.
It's snowing/sleeting/freezing rain/icy and I need to cancel my party. Can I reschedule?
Yes! If it’s dangerous weather for people to be out traveling, you can reschedule if you give at least 24 hours notice. Rescheduling your party package is subject to availability.
What if you have bad weather in your local area and I do not? Will you come anyway?
If I decide the weather poses a threat to my personal safety or if weather.com shows a winter weather advisory for my local area, I reserve the right to cancel services for personal safety reasons. A full refund will be issued in this case.
