I can not say enough good things about Emma. We hired her for our daughter's 1st birthday party and she was a huge hit. Emma was on time and kept all the kids entertained and the parents even got into the fun. I would suggest to anyone reading this to book Emma and I promise you will not regret it.
Thank you Emma! We all loved your balloons so much! :)
Emma & Team!
We adore you and your art work. We thought the balloons and face painting made the event magical for our daughter and our guests. Everyone enjoyed it so much. It was a pleasure to work with you. Can't wait until next year to do it all over again!
Thank you for the beautiful memories!

We hired Emma for facepainting and balloon twisting at our daughter's 3rd birthday party. Emma was a HUGE hit!! Emma is so talented, she was able to take requests for almost any face painting and balloon design! We had a few more kids show up than expected and she handled it expertly. Emma helped to make our party a success and I highly recommend her for any venue.
My Emma had an awesome time today! Thank you so much for your wonderful work. All my guests were commenting how amazing both of you were!
I was blown away by Emma's designs! She was beyond talented (kids and parents all wanted a balloon made for them), arrived on time, and was great with the children. She was fast at balloon twisting and even stuck around past the allotted time making sure to accommodate everyone at the party. I would highly recommend Emma's designs you will be so delighted with her and the company!
We had our son's second birthday party this weekend and Emma was the hit of the party. She had a great connection with the kids and her designs were absolutely beautiful. The kids had an amazing time thanks to her and we were asked by several of the parents for her info so I guess I'll be seeing her again at a birthday party soon.
Thank you Emma!!!
I highly recommend Emma's Designs for any children's party. Emma is extremely talented. Her face painting is the best I've ever seen. She also did balloon animals which were so intricate and delighted all the children at the party. We will definitely use Emma's Designs again!
Our party was a huge success due to Emma's amazing balloon sculptures! All of the parents and kids were delighted with what they got and each and every kid asked for something different.
We had her for 1 1/2 hrs and it was perfect as every child got a balloon. She was right on time, and went non-stop for the the entire time.
I can't wait to hire her again!
Hi ED was great with the kids (big age range) at our party this past Saturday. The kids were so mesmerized by the various designs that they all waited (pretty patiently) in line for Emma. The parents were thrilled and kept telling me that this was pure art. Highly recommend!
Thank you again for doing such a great job yesterday at my daughters birthday party! The balloon art and face painting were absolutely perfect and my guests haven't stopped telling me how much they loved your work. I would recommend you and your team to anyone!
We held a kickoff for a week-long innovation event in our office, and asked Emma to come in to liven up the scene with some designs in advance, then to take requests from folks. She was awesome! She got creative with fitting our company (we're eBay, so she made stuff like cameras and a pez dispenser), and made some seriously complex hats. The group really loved it.
Working with her (communication in advance, setting up, and so on) was also super-easy.
Our son had a great 4th birthday party thanks to Emma! All of his friends also enjoyed her balloon twisting! She was accommodating, and we recommend her.
We had Emma come to our son's 7th birthday party to do balloon twisters. She was unbelievable!!! All the parents and kids were amazed at how intricate the designs were...from dogs to helicopters to butterflies...She was prompt, patient and so talented. We would absolutely recommend her .
Emma was great for my daughter's two-year birthday party! We hired Emma to do balloon twisting, and she made some great balloon art for all the kids on request in addition to creating an awesome Bubble Puppy balloon centerpiece for my daughter's Bubble Guppies themed party.
I have now hired Emma's Designs for 2 years for the New York Baby show and she is always a huge hit. Emma is a true artist and her balloons are amazing. She is also professional and fun. Can't wait for her to be at the expo next year!
I just wanted to thank you for sharing your amazing talents with us. This night is so meaningful to myself and my team and we look forward to it all year long. I am so appreciative of your time and energies and your huge giving heart. Thank you for sharing it with my team and all the beautiful and amazing children and their families from the Mount Sinai Pediatric Oncology division.
Our party was a success! The kids really enjoyed their face painted! My son loved it so much that he didn't want to take it off and wanted to sleep with it.
Emma was very kind with the kids even the small kids got there face painted. We definitely recommend her to all.
Emma was great, so accomodating! Her ballooon designs were awesome, all the kids, parents and myself loved her. Highly recommend!
Emma was wonderful! I had a very small party of just 3 girls who got beautiful faces with custom jewels and the most amazing balloons I have ever seen. She even made my daughter an amazing special Elsa. She was wonderfully accommodating as I contacted her last minute. I would HIGHLY recommend Emma for any event or party.
We had Emma nose her team provide baloon twisting and face painting for our son's 2nd birthday and it was a hit, al the kids were lined up and happy to have there faces painted and a ballon in their hand. Great quality work!
Emma was fantastic!! I first met Emma at a friends party and so I decided I would hire her for my daughters 1st birthday party to entertain my 3.5 yo son and the other older kids at the party. Emma was on time and ver professional. Her face painting skills are amazing! And she's very fast so she can get a lot of antsy kids done fast and still have them look cute! She even did a few of us adults :). I also hired her for ballon twisting but unfortunately she lost her pump on the way over. But no worries, she was able to use the balloons she had with her to make balloon wands, and other cute animals. She really kept all the kids entertained and happy! I would recommend her and use her again!!
Emma was fantastic at my daughters birthday party. We had met her at my other daughters friends birthday and loved her work. She was great with each kid and did fantastic work. She was awesome even with the chaos we had, in using waiting for a couple girls who arrived late to get their face painted before she did balloons.I would defintly reccomend her.
We had Emma at our 5 year old son's Birthday Party yesterday and I had to write a review bc she was INCREDIBLE!! We had over 40 kids there who all wanted their faces painted. She meticulously and carefully and patiently made each child exactly what they wanted and they all LOVED IT! She then also twisted a special YODA balloon for my son and another speical spiderman balloon for him and his friend. I would HIGHLY recommend Emma for anyone's party without any hesitation and am happy to discuss anything about her with you. Emma, thank you we will be reaching out to you again very soon. We can not thank you enough.
Your services were great! The kids and families enjoyed your talented and amazing work.
I appreciate you coordinating your schedule to meet our needs.
Thank you for being a part of the New York Baby Show!
We enjoyed having Emma paint faces of our little guests for our 3-year-old's party. Emma is very talented, and has a wonderful way with children and guests in general. We look forward to having her paint the beautiful butterflies, dragons, and such… on our daughter's and her friends' faces next year again.
We had our daughter's birthday parties for two years in a row (ages five and six) with Emma's Designs. Emma's face-painting is amazing! The children were delighted with her designs -- and also the amazing balloon shapes she created. She is a real artist! Highly recommend!
Emma had to send one of her other painters and she was amazing! Brenda was so sweet and very talented. Thank you for making Dev's day extra special. Emma was also very accommodating as we kept switching our minds on what we wanted.
I wanted to say thanks for the party-Shelley did a great job. The kids enjoyed the balloons and Minnie Mouse and Shelley did a great job.
If you are worried about when another person is to arrive don't be with Emma's Designs, she has the best!
Emma was on time, even a little early. Painted the Birthday girl as a beautiful Unicorn and the kids really enjoyed getting their faces painted thank you!
I hired Emma, based upon the reviews on this site, and am more than pleased with the job she did! We celebrated my twins 1st birthday and her tattoos & balloons suited all ranges from 1-13, plus some admiring adults. She was professional and nice and a great addition to a very large party. I look forward to using Emma for future parties as do some our friends who were also impressed. Overall, couldn't have been happier and highly recommend Emma.
Loved your work! No one even recognized it was me! I was wonderfully painted with a tiger face. An absolute A+
Future plans to have Emma come back to my establishment for an adult face painting party! Thank You!!!
Emma was wonderful at my daughters 4th birthday, all the kids love the balloons and at the end she made 2 special balloons for my daughter. We did buy the special balloon package but we got what I never expected. She went beyond an above and made a Cinderella doll balloon that my daughter was so thrilled to have. She would not let go of it. Thank you Emma for making her feel extra special.
Emma attended our sons birthday party and was great! She was patient with the kids and seriously did amazing work, that you can see here. She is seriously amazing, and on squirmy kids I don't know how she does it but she makes fantastic work. The adults even wanted in on the face painting!!
Emma was awesome! Super accommodating with a large party of kids ranging from 2 - 10. Very professional and adapted to a little bit of a chaotic party situation. Highly recommend!!
I hired Emma's Designs for my son's 5th biRthday (through Living Social) and it was great. Her work was incredible. The kids loved it. The parents were impressed. Overall a great experience. Thanks so much!
We are a design Company for Clothing, Jewelry & Hats. We are proud to day she worked with us doing a specialty evening featuring my clothes & Emma Sadler's Talent with body & face painting to enhance the look.

Emma came to entertain 9 five year old children with her face painting skills and ended up also painting the faces of the adults so beautiful was her painting! She is very sweet and talented and very good with the children -I highly recommend her.
We really enjoyed having Emma. She was really good with 15 demanding little 4 yr olds and was very nice and patient. She arrived on time and left when she said she would. Very professional. Thanks Emma.
Emma's Designs is a wonderful company whose owner is very nice, helpful and talented. Her tutus are to die for and are absolutely adorable. She is very kind and patient and understanding and so very helpful. Her service was wonderful and made my daughter feel special. Thank you Emma for your kindness and impeccable eye for detail and beauty.
I have hired Emma numerous times now from last year. She never disappoints. This year I asked her to even do a mini lesson with the kids which she did without hesitation. She was helpful to the kids and went around to each and everyone to help them learn how to twist. Then after they got to learn she made them each a wonderful balloon to take home.
She gave an experience the kids will never forget. I look forward to seeing you next month!
You were great because you arrived on time and didn't complain about the cramped space, but got to work and never took a break! You even kindly re-painted those kids who wanted to be painted again.
Emma was a big hit at my daughter's birthday party - did a variety of great designs and has a gentle friendly demeanor that immediately put all the kids at ease.
Spectacular! Creative! Fun!! Far superior to any other face painting I've seen. So good Emma could be the makeup artist for a Broadway revival of "Cats."
Emma was a big hit at my son's 4th Birthday. She came as a pirate and twisted pirate themed balloons. She was on time, professional, and really nice and patient with all 20 4 year olds. I would would hire her again and recommend her to any one looking for talented and reliable party entertainment.
Emma helped make my son's safari themed party a success at the zoo. All the kids loved getting their favorite animal/design painted on them.

What to Expect
With face painting each kid/adult gets to feel special as they sit in the honorary chair to get painted. Emma gives a special eye to detail and adds something to each one that makes it different and unique to the person who wears it. Face painting is a sitting down/stationed service.
With balloon twisting everyone joins in the fun. Emma and her assistants are sure to try and involve the kid, teen or adult into the experience. While quickly assembling wild and wonderful creations. Everyone is always impressed at the unique designs that she makes using balloons. Balloons are a standing service. Little to no set up is required for it, which is the great thing about it and can work even in the tightest settings. Sometimes a small table is required for set up in our Deluxe package.
We also offer glitter and airbrush tattoos, helium balloons and balloon decor.
We are Manhattan based.
Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, and the Bronx are the best but we also cater to New Jersey, Staten Island and Long Island.
I know how important it is to captivate the kids and provide a friendly fun atmosphere. I have worked in many day camps ranging from kids ages 3-14. I even have my own daughter and am a mom like many that I cater to.
We always go above and beyond for our clients to give them the best we can possibly do and some.
We also have worked on commercials and videos and are experienced in working in the film industry.
Additional Booking Notes
We normally ask for the client to provide a table and 2 chairs. If this can not be provided we can bring out own at an extra charge. (This is for face painting, tattoos, and henna.)
For some of our balloon packages we ask that just a small table be provided.
