Fabulous, Fast, Full Face Paint designs! I use glitter and jewels and liquid bling!
UV painting available for black light parties.
Awesome, Amazing Balloon Sculptures! (Not your typical swords and dogs!)
Available for birthday parties and Corporate Events! Fully Insured.
Wonderful Experience. She was there on time. She made the most awesome Christmas balloons. We had Santa and the Grinch and snowman. The balloons were too cute. She stayed until every child was satisfied
We hired Laurel for my sons wedding reception since we were expecting over 50+ children, best decision ever! Laurel kept the kids entertained and laughing throughout the evening. So many parents thanked us and the Bride and Groom for thinking of the kids so the parents could enjoy the reception without distraction. Even the kids said ‘best wedding ever!”
We took a face painting service and were served by Heather. She is awesome!! She knows her craft and thorough professional.she even accommodated requests from guests and pushed beyond the time limits.
Laurel is a talented artist. The paintings on the kids’ faces were beautiful! She is also very talented at balloon- making. The other moms at the party wanted her contact info so they could use her at their parties.
Best balloon animals and face painting I have seen! On time and delivered services as promised!
Did great art work on the painting.
We expected 40-50 guests including 9 children under 5 and another 5 children under 14. Laurel was set up in our playroom. Children and adults kept coming out of the playroom with beautiful face painting (in record time) and very impressive twisted balloons. I had many guests remark about her skill and efficiency and several asked for her card. As the children were finished up and headed to the bounce house, 9 adults had their face painted. Laurel used 3D Unicorn horns for those of us that were not going to be in the bounce house. She painted 20 faces and twisted many balloons in 2 hours. Everyone was pleased with their choices (of which there were many). We would hire Laurel again and would recommend her for anyone looking for a way to keep their guests engaged for hours. There was a line going into the playroom for most of the party. We loved her as party entertainment!
Very talented!! Very fast! She was wonderful. We will use her again for future events!
Extremely talented and patient! We highly encourage the booking of JustcallLaurel, she was wonderful and exactly what we needed for a 5 and 3 year old birthday party!
Response from JustCallLaurel:
Thank you so much. What a sweet group of kids!
Laurel’daufhter provided service. She was great with kids. Paid attention to Party theme. Face paint & balloon art added to our party!
Fantastic face painting and so fast! The parents were thrilled and the kids were over the moon!
She was excellent great work would highly recommend her!
I was surprised that it wasn’t Laurel that showed up because that’s who I booked, but Heather was great and the kids loved her.
Response from JustCallLaurel:
Heather and I are partners. So sorry that I didn't remember to let you know! Glad the kids were happy!
See you next year.
Heather was awesome! Amazing job!! All the girls loved their faces and Heather went above and beyond to make sure all the girls were happy!! I would definitely use her again in the future!!
Laurel was the best face painter and balloon twister I have ever seen. She was the absolute best and accommodated all of our guests. I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.
Laurel was fabulous! We greatly enjoyed having her at our event and would definitely recommend her. She was skilled and so kind to all of our guests. Thank you Laurel!
Professional & very talented, Laurel came through for us in a pinch! Will definitely call Laurel again!
Awesome. Highly recommend.
Laurel was very kind and professional. Kids were pretty happy with face painting and baloon sculptures. Everyone enjoyed the quick magic show that Laurel did.
You never exactly know what you're getting when you book through a hiring app but I have always had great experience with gig salad and trusted the vendor, Just Call Laurel, would be good. Good is an insult to her abilities. She was amazing! The customers were astounded by her face painting! Think I am overselling her? Ever heard of 3-D face painting? Yeah, we hadn't either until yesterday. We had a literal herd of little girl unicorns running around our store!! Just don't think about it book her, right away. You will not be sorry!
It was my perfect decision to have Laurel in our event. Kids really enjoyed what she provided ", Balloon twister. I would definitely recommend her!
Response from JustCallLaurel:
Thank you so much!!! Any time!
The party got off to a slow start but when it got swinging into gear. The guest were very pleased with her facial paintings as well as the balloon twisting, very unique style. will definitely use her services again. Thanks for making his bday party a success.
Laurel did face painting and balloon twisting at a housewarming this weekend I threw for one of my buyers. She did and excellent job. Both kids and parents loved her work. Her face painting is truly artwork. The balloon twisting was unique and beyond the norm. I would highly recommend her for your next event. Ron Utterback, Keller Williams FIRST ATLANTA.
I have nothing but praise for Ms Laurel. She did a fantasic job with the face painting. Very pleasant and a positive attitude. Both parents and children were extremely happy with her designs. The colors and her artistic hands just beautiful. We are surely using her again next year for a longer period.
She was accommodating to the themes listed. The balloon sculptures were phenomenal. She worked well with kids & parents. Very professional. This woman was amazing. Thank you!!! We really enjoyed your service.
Laurel was on time, professional and did amazing balloon twisting and face painting, a lot of beautiful detail. Thanks so much!
Response from JustCallLaurel:
Thank you Zoe! The kids were all so sweet!
Laurel did an absolutely fantastic job at my granddaughter's birthday party. She was very engaging with the kids and a lot of fun. They really loved all the different and unique kinds of balloon twisting. I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for children's entertainment.
Response from JustCallLaurel:
So nice! Thank you for your kind words!
I never write reviews but she did an awesome job! All the children were completely satisfied and she made my baby's birthday one she will always remember. I booked so last minute but Laurel was completely prepared and professional. So many of the parents wanted to know how I found her. I'm sure she will have a lot more business around Fort Benning after this party. She is so talented! Her face painting and balloons are so unique. I can't stress how perfect everything went because of her. Laurel really helped my daughter feel like a princess on her big day.
Response from JustCallLaurel:
Thank you so much! I am just glad I had that afternoon available! Your guests were all so sweet. Gotta love a Princess Party!
Laurel did a wonderful job at our corporate picnic. Her balloon animals and face painting were a huge hit with the kids. I have to say, her balloon animals were some of the best I've ever seen. She was on-time, efficient, personable and I will definitely be booking her again!
I can't say enough positive things about Laurel and her daughter. They came and did face-painting as well as balloon sculptures for my son's birthday party. The children loved the surprisingly intricate and detailed body paintings--some on faces; some on arms. The balloon sculptures were the most elaborate that I have EVER seen. Many of the guests marveled about the balloons. There were ninjas, mermaids, aliens, pokemon, etc. etc. The balloons alone could have been the guests' parting gifts, and they would have been thrilled. They made a special "Ninja Wrapped in a Rattlesnake" for my son who loves reptiles and was dressed in a ninja costume. I highly recommend JustCallLaurel for your entertainment needs. I know we'll be using their services for any future parties. They were both amazing.
Laurel was great! Very easy and quick with responses coordinating our event(last minute). The day if she arrived early- got set up and went to work! Of course all the kids wanted their faces painted and Laurel not only was able to paint everyone's FULL face she did an amazing job. I didn't really know what to expect but oh wow, all of their faces looked awesome! Not cheesy hearts and rainbows! All the parents kept telling me how awesome she was too! And she even broke out some great balloon art! The kids loved her, parents raved - we will definitely use Laurel again!! Thanks so much for the great evening. :)
Heather was awesome! With the number of kids we had at our event and only having 2 hours I expected her to do simple quick cheek designs to get to as many kids as possible. Oh no! She did partial and some full face designs that were intricate and beautifully done, plus she still managed to do a lot of kids. I was extremely impressed and she was very nice.
What an amazing experience for little ones!!!! Not only did Laurel show up in character, but her face painting and balloon animals were out of this world!! She is super professional and organized and I would highly recommend her for any and all occasions!!! So happy I found her on here!
I loved Heather and the great energy she brought to my sons birthday party! She is very talented and even some of the adults got some face painting. I will definitely be booking her again. Thanks a lot!
Wonderful job, on time, professional and subperb work 10 stars here
Laurel is professional in every way from the way she dresses to early arrivals and detailed. She works great with kids and really knows her stuff.
What to Expect
I will arrive at your event at least 30 minutes prior to start time. I generally wear a neutral outfit of all black, or Khaki and black. For Holidays I will add theme wear. If your event calls for something special I can usually accommodate. I do NOT like to dress as a clown, since I have found so many people terribly freaked out by them! Unless the weather is horribly hot and humid, I will paint my face as soon as I set up. I paint designs rather quickly, most under 3 minutes. 20 people per hour is a good estimate. 30 minutes before the end of the event, I will close my line by telling the people in the line that they are my final designs. If a client wants to add time to the event, I am usually fine with that unless I have a second job soon after. I try to be flexible.
WATER PROOF PAINT: For pool parties or high humidity days, I can offer a water-proof paint, for a slightly higher price.
BLACK LIGHT PAINT: Skating parties, Raves, and other events featuring UV light are perfect for offering special paint that glows!
My name is Laurel Alford. I am 59 years old, and live in Newnan Georgia. I routinely travel up to 2 hours for a job, provided that the compensation accounts for travel time. I do face painting/balloon twisting as a full-time income.
FACE PAINTING; All of the painting gigs I go on have happy parents making comments like, "That is so good, and it was FAST!" "You are the best painter we have ever had!" Now, in explanation, I do good designs that the kids love... and I do them under 3 minutes each... so that I can really move a line at a large event. I do NOT paint high-end grand art that takes 10-15 minutes each.
I routinely embellish my girl designs with glitter and custom make gem clusters. The girls go NUTS over BLING!
BALLOONS: The most common comment I hear at every job is, "I have NEVER SEEN such great balloons!" Far more than the typical swords, dogs and flowers.... I enjoy making custom sculptures for each child. In addition I can make LARGE special centerpieces.
Additional Booking Notes
I provide my own paints. Unless otherwise discussed, the client will provide the space, and chairs. I do not require a table.
Additional fee is charged if I must provide my own pop up canopy.
Both paint and balloons are weather sensitive. I will need to be placed in an area out of direct sun, wind, and NEVER in front of the DJ speakers! (I need to hear the kids!)
