I generally rely on reviews for anything I purchase, hire, etc…Unfortunately I did the same for A Better Party. I am extremely disappointed with the service provided for our company party. I ordered 2 clowns for face painting and balloon twisting. The face painter (owner) did a good job but elected to set up in the very rear of the party. I had to direct children to her. For the 1st 20 minutes the balloon twister sat at a picnic table not interacting with anyone. In front of the owner I suggested he walk around and engage with the people. Why me tell him and not her? The gentleman did a horrible job. He dressed as only a ½ clown because he wore jeans on the bottom and no face make-up/paint. He never smiled, walked around like he was forced to have this job and only twisted balloons when approached. I literally had to direct him around numerous times. I had comments made to me, “why did you hire a sad clown”, “he looks like he really wants to be here, not”. Today back at work I was thanked for a job well done BUT don’t hire those so called clowns again. Hands down, my entire company (90+ people) knew they were a bust!
Then at one point in time I saw the balloon twister by the food truck I ordered. They didn’t serve him unless he had a ticket. He went over to the table I had all the things I needed for the event. He got a ticket and ordered food. Didn’t even ask! And this was before his shift was done.
I would have been more than happy to provide him a meal (as I did the magician I hired) BUT they never even came to me to say goodbye or ask how they did.
Just a waste of time and true embarrassment! DO NOT HIRE THEM!
