If Emma can't make it she has just a great colleagues!

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!

Pretty and professional designs and entertainment A++

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.

She is Extra amazing

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.

a-m-a-z-i-n-g!!!

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!!

Last minute cancellation

Booked Emma for balloon twisting for my daughter's 2nd birthday party. Based on the reviews, I'm sure Emma is very tallented, but she cancelled via email and hour before she was due to arrive. I understand that emergencies come up, but she left me stranded with a house full of kids.... And no follow-up since. Beware......

A Wonderful Face Painting Artist

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.

Emma is really good with kids and her craft

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.

Will contuine to hire her.

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!

Ruined My Daughters Party

I had booked Emma Designs for my Daughters Christening. I signed a contract and thought everything was ok. But the day of my daughters Christening NO ONE showed up. I gave her my cellphone and she never called to even tell me she would not be able to make my daughters christening. I had no entertainment for my daughters party. I would definetly not recommend her for your party...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Very bad experience

Kids loved it!

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.

Talened and reliable!

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.

Fit right into the theme.

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.

Overview

With face painting each kid/adult gets to feel special as they sit in the honorary chair to get painted. She 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 walk around service/standing. No set up is required for it, which is the great thing about it!

We offer Characters who interact with your little ones and ensure a super special day for the birthday girl or boy. These characters can just visit for photos or come and entertain with a service like balloon twisting.

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.)

We ask for a table and chairs if a character package is chosen with crafts.
