Thank you Dot for a fun filled day! Dot made the party of 100 happy for young and old. We look forward to having Dot make us all smile again - at all our parties. Came early setup and was ready to share fun and laughter! Thank you again Dot!!!
We booked Dorothy with Dot Your Face! for a 1.5 hour children's entertainment slot at our niece's 1st birthday lunch at an Indian restaurant in New Jersey. Dorothy showed up earlier than scheduled, and was set up and ready to go for our time slot. She was very professional, and looked great as a friendly clown. She walked around the party and tried to get the kids to join her for some balloon and face paint fun! I loved that she was very interactive with the guests. We had a lot less kids show up (they rsvp'd and didn't show) but she handled that with ease. She also sang several songs with the kids and did a special parachute time song for our niece and my sister in law. The kids LOVED it! And so did the adults! I would highly recommend her for any of your party or get together needs! We loved her!!!
Great experience. My daughter said she had such a fun time :)
Response from Dot Your Face!:
Thank you Lisa! I loved listening to the children giggle during parachute time. Also their eyes widen when I was making the balloon hats and animals.
The children were adorable looking with their faces painted. Well behaved children - reflective of the great parents there:)
Dot was great and entertained kids young and old at a firemans fair...On time, professional and kept everyone happy! Hope to see her again!
Response from Dot Your Face!:
Thank you very much for your kind words. I enjoyed meeting you and entertaining the many children at the Keyport Fireman's Fair. I hope your dinner for the Sailing Club (60 people) was a Success!!:)
This was our first time hiring entertainment for our child's 5th birthday party. We could not have been happier with Dorothy from Dot Your Face. She was punctual, kind, friendly and talented. The kids really loved her and had a great time!!
Response from Dot Your Face!:
Thank you Maria for your complimentary words regarding my show for your daughter's 5th Birthday!
The children looked adorable in their Balloon hats, hearts, Flowers and balloon animals.
I enjoyed playing music and interacting with such a well behaved group of children.
Happy Mother's Day!
Dot performed at a birthday party for our son this April. She was exactly what we were looking for. She was right on time, extremely nice, and the kids absolutely loved all of their balloons. We will definitely recommend her to everyone and hopefully book her again ourselves. Thanks Dot!
What to Expect
An hour to two hour show from a professional entertainer for children. I arrive early to prepare for the special event. My costumes are colorful and clean. I confirm all details of the party with the client to make sure I understand completely what my client needs will be for the party. Children will be excited and happy with their painted faces and beautiful balloon art.
If an art project was created at the party, the children will be so proud of what they created because it also tied into the theme of the birthday too.There will be dancing, clapping and singing with props in a circle that I lead with the children and parents can participate too and are encouraged to do so!.
Dorothy Perretti, an entertainer and event planner for chjldren for the past 20 years. Dot Perretti is a guest writer regarding children's topics for HIBU, a publisher of area Magazines in New Jersey (i.e. Summit, Wall, Colts Neck, Brielle). Perretti is also a former Gymboree teacher and mother of two college aged children. Interacting with children by dancing with props to fun music then placing a parachute over their heads makes for a really good children's party. When Dot makes balloon animals, crowns, hats, swords she puts the smiles on the children's faces.
Face Painting by Dot turns the children into animals such as tigers, lions, kitty cats, and dogs also super heroes such as Spiderman, Batman and other popular characters. Art Projects, Carnival games and rides are available too. Don't forget about the Bounce House if you have active children that need a work out!
Additional Booking Notes
