Our checklist can help you to get ready for the big day. Planning a party can be a fun and easy process full of opportunities to make happy memories.
Choosing the fun: We can help you decide on the best activities to suit the number of guests and the theme of your party. We can coordinate goody bags or mementos to your party.
We offer custom balloon decorating and entertainment packages to make your party picture perfect and lots of fun. Our trained entertainers have worked with a variety of themes and occasions, from Cute 1st Birthday parties to Posh Corporate Events.
Most activities don't require much time to set-up, and performers arrive a few minutes beforehand so they are ready for your guests. We can stage activities, offering one at a time, or have more than one performer to give guests their choice of simultaneous activities. We work with itineraries or help suggest a party plan.
Balloon decorating is set-up onsite, pre-party. We don't cut our helium so you have the maximum float time possible, whether you have natural latex balloon decor or foils. We break down our own hardware after the party, so we save you set-up/breakdown fees and deposits on hardware pieces.
We have been repetitively featured at events. We have proudly had performers at; Biz-Bash, AMA Heartwalk, Light the Night, Walk Now for Autism Speaks, Back 2 School Block Parties, Fun Runs, Children's Charity Carnival, Grand Openings, and other amazing events. It's always nice to be welcomed back and see familiar faces year after year.
Not sure how long you need?
Here are some general guideline to help with activity planing:
Choose one activity for 8-10 children per hour per performer.
8-12 participants (1 hour)
1 performer for 1 hour =1 activity
2 performers for 1 hours with 8-12 children=2 activities
8-12 participants (2 hours)
1 performer for 2 hours for 8-12 children=2 activities
2 performers for 2 hours with 8-12 children=up to 4 activities
12-25 participants (1 hour)
2 performers for 1 hours with 12-25 children=1 activities
12-25 participants (2 hours)
1 performer for 2 hours with 12-25 children=1 activity
2 performers for 2 hours with 12-25 children=2 activities
12-25 participants (3 hours)
1 performer for 3 hours with 12-25 children=2 activities
2 performers for 3 hours with 12-25 children=up to 3 activities
2 performers for 2 hours with 25-50 participants= 1 activity
2 performers for 4 hours with 25-50 participants=2 activities
3 performers for 2 hours with 50+ participants=1 activity
Add extra time or performers for larger groups or offer group activities like: games, tutorials, or arts & crafts activity.
We always suggest for party host(ess) to have the entertainers arrive at least 30 minutes into the party and wrap up before your party ends, so you have time for cake and to send your guests.
MoonOnTheWater has been bringing quality entertainment to families and organizations for over TWO decades. As one of the core team member's its something I'm really proud of!
We have been working with guests of all ages and skill sets and bring a unique style to the things we do. I love it when adults join in the fun, and it makes for some of the best party pictures you'll ever get and fun memories.
We have entertained at: Birthday Parties, Sweet 16's Graduation Parties, Shower's, Weddings, Libraries for Summer Reading, Scout Troops for Jamborees, Fundraisers & Walks, Restaurant Kid's Night, Corporate Events, Religious Events, Grand Openings and so many other fun events. We love getting called back to do another party/event and seeing how much our younger guests have grown since the last party. Many of our staff are proud Mom's and Dad's and are comfortable playing to all ages.

We use natural latex balloons that come in brilliant colors and biodegrade at about the same rate as an oak leaf, meaning a greener party for you without skimping on the pizzazz. We also offer foil balloons including: numbers, letters, and popular characters and themes for a unique and stylish look.
We set up on-site and break down stationary arches and our equipment after the party so you can enjoy your guests. Centerpieces and String-Of-Pearls arches are yours to keep and bring home.
Some of my favorites are princesses, superheroes, rainbows, unicorns, and wild life.
We use the best water-based face paintings on the market, Snazaroo! (FDA approved) We believe in this product so much that our performers wear the same brand of paint on themselves. For longer lasting effects we suggest henna or bling glitter tattoos.
We use a blend of natural henna and luxurious essential oils for a stunning artistry and an emollient skin experience. Our henna artistry has been featured at events and we have proudly been a part of many Weddings and celebrations. Our artists do traditional and modern designs, so there is something for everyone. Henna is a lovely stain that can last from 3 days to six weeks depending on how quickly your skin exfoliates. Our mixture is a beautiful reddish brown that begins as a light orange stain that darkens as it oxidizes until it reaches full bloom at 24-72 hours and is personalized to your pH and body temperature, for a stunning personalized experience.
Bling Glitter tattoos:
With an entire book of sample designs to choose from,, its no wonder that MoonOnTheWater Entertaining has been featured at carnivals, events, and parties. We have brilliant artwork to suit most everyone. Bling glitter tattoos can last up to 2 weeks, but can be removed easily if needed. We an accent with sparkling rhinestones or adorn you with a variety of shades of glitter.
-Performers can come in staff attire (neat jeans/staff shirt) or costume(clown/pirate) to suit your party.
-We book your party with completed contract and payment, all done online so its simple and easy to hire your favorite performers for your party/event.
-We offer event insurance for an additional fee up to 5 days before the party.
-We guarantee our performers, they are all trained professionals(each with more than a decade experience). Our performers have clean drug-screens and criminal background checks. If we wouldn't invite them into our home, we wouldn't send them into yours. It's that important to us.
-We offer rain-date insurance for outdoor parties at an additional fee.
-In the unlikely event of a Government DECLARED State of Emergency(flood, fire, act of terrorism, blizzard), we allow one postponement for any available non-holiday weekend date at no additional charge. We want your guests and our performers to be as safe as possible.
-Ask us to add in activities or decor and we can custom create a package just for you.
Additional Booking Notes
When ordering balloon decorating, it helps to have sample pictures of the room and measurements(including ceiling height) so we can help you determine which elements will work without over crowding the room.
Balloons should be ordered two weeks in advance for maximum style selection. While we do keep some stock on hand for last minute bookings, we want your balloons to be as fresh as possible for maximum float time.
Face Painting & Balloon Twisting:
This is by far our most selected pair of activities. Performers require the least possible space, for the biggest enjoyment. All they require is a table and TWO chairs. They can bring own table, if needed-just let us know on the contract, so we have them all set for the big day.
Games & Other Activities:
Games & Activities require space to move around. Please, keep this in mind when booking performers for a restaurant type setting and let us know you will be confined to table space.
We book performers on a first come/first served basis with completed contract and online deposit in order to be fair to all our clients. If you are requesting a rain date when booking, we will need to make sure both dates are available before we can confirm your booking.
If you plan an outdoor event, we can have performers bring a tent for their use. Balloons and performers prefer a bit of shade. Let us know to add tenting to the contract. While there is no additional fee, performers require additional set-up time.
Summer months tend to book up quickly, so we suggest making sure we have availability when you confirm a venue date. We book up 18 months in advance for weddings and events.
We always keep additional performers on staff to make sure you have promised performers for your party(even performers get sick at times, so we retain extra staff to make sure your party goes off without a hitch).
