We were so happy with Sarah as a balloon artist for my son's 7th birthday party. She was on time, set up everything and packed up herself, and delighted the full gamut of kids, whether they wanted cute animals or swords with which to battle each other. Perfection!
On time, kind and amazing tattoos. All the kids absolutely loved it!
She was a complete sweetheart very professional and kind fulfilled all the children’s request. She was very attentive and patient with each child. They loved her i will definitely be booking again for my next child’s birthday party🤍✨
Sarah came to our house for our daughter's birthday party and she was absolutely fantastic! Patient, fun and highly skilled. She made a veritable zoo of animals that the children loved. And was not flummoxed by more exotic requests - in our case, Batman and a devil! Cannot recommend Sarah enough.
The kids had a blast and her skills are exceptional. My reason for 4 stars over 5 is that we paid for a time frame versus the amount of balloon animals made. Some children wanted another balloon animal and she said they had to give up one that was already made for them. That did not make sense to give up a balloon already given to a child. If it was based on amount of balloons that would make sense, but with additional time and the request for another balloon animal, this should be a non-issue.
Response from SBH Balloons, Face Painting & Tattoos:
Hey Leo! I am so sorry this is how the situation came off from your perspective!
With a limited amount of time left I had told the children we had just enough time to get everyone a second balloon! Some of the children were asking if they could get a third before everyone had gotten a second balloon and in the interest of fairness, I told them we had to wait till everyone had two to see if there was time! I finished making a second balloon for everyone right at our end time, and at this point one of the younger boys expressed being sad he had asked for a dog as his second balloon but now wished he had asked for sword instead. At this point I offered to trade the dog for a sword and we could leave the dog for someone else! This was in a effort to be fair to all the children since we were out of time so I couldn't make a 3rd for everyone and I had told other children this already. It can be hard when it appears one child got more balloons than the others! To be clear, I did make the third balloon for that child and was there through the full contracted amount of time plus a few minutes. You seemed happy with the event when I left and I am disappointed I did not have a chance to explain this in person as I never want a misunderstanding like this to sour your experience!
I am glad to hear overall the children had as much fun as I did!
Our residents and especially their children loved the event and all the creative balloon animals. Lots of variety and took any request. Highly recommend.
Overall great experience. Will book again.
We hosted a Halloween 5th birthday party for my son and everyone LOVED the balloons and face painting. She arrived on time, set-up was outside and she was masked. Worth every penny for how much the kids enjoyed it.
Fantastic on time service! The kids enjoyed the balloon and face art. Will definitely book again if needed.
Sarah made balloons animals and washable tattoos for over 20 kids at my daughters 6th birthday and she was terrific. I highly recommend her services for any party. She’s accommodating, kind, talented and professional. She was the hit of the party!
Thanks for helping us make the event a totally fun one!
The day was a success and your addition gave the little ones a chance to participate!
The kids absolutely loved her balloons! She made our bday party super special. Definitely recommend her.
We were very happy and the balloons were great. We will use you again if we have the need. Thanks for coming!
Miguel was on time, friendly, and wonderful with our four year old. He made his pandemic birthday party of two special. His balloon art was amazing. He even made a balloon Harry Potter for his older brother!
Sarah's balloons, face painting and glitter tattoos are awesome! She is also great with kids. All the kids at my daughter's birthday party loved it. Will definitely recommend her and call her next year :)
Very professional. Worth it.
Came early, was prepared, kind, attentive, sweet with the kids of all ages and her actual work was beautiful.
SBH did an amazing job and we'll definitely book them in the future. The balloon twisting was a big hit amongst the children and I was so happy to see the smiles on their faces.
This is our second year we've asked SBH to provide face painting services and they never disappoint. The paintings are very good and the kids were happy!!
Sarah was so professional and full of talent. The kids loved all the options - face paint, glitter tattoos, and the balloon creations! I highly recommend her and would hire her again in the future!!
She was on time, polite and was very talented with all of her creations. We would definitely recommend her and use her again.
Mark was on time and so good with the kids. Personable and funny, kid-friendly jokes. His ability to make such a wide variety of animals, characters, and objects was such a crowd pleaser. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat, this was worth every cent!
Wonderful experience, amazing balloon twisting skills! Next level!
SBH Ballons & Face Painting - thank you for making our event a fun and memorable one! I will be sure to recommend your services to anyone who needs a great entertainer for kids. The face painting was awesome, and they loved the balloons...especially the monkey climbing the tree :)
Sarah was awesome, timely, patient and professional. Thank you so much.
Thanks SBH for making our son's birthday party so much fun!
The kids loved the face paint and balloons! The mermaid balloon was a crowd favorite.
The children loved the face painting and the balloon flowers, butterflies and princess she made.
Several adults also joined in the face painting.
I cannot wait for the next event so that we can invite her back.
Sarah was great! She came on time and even though we were running a bit late, she was very accommodating.
Price Range: $150 & up
Insurance: $5,000 - General liability insurance
What to Expect
The artist will come prepare with their own small table and stool, about 15 minutes before start time to ensure time to park and set up. The artist can do fast and simple balloons or more complex designs based on number of children and your desires. It averages 25 balloons per hour, 30 glitter tattoos per hour or 10 faces per hour.
I've been doing balloons professionally since 2010, and am a third generation balloon artist so I grew up around the business! As I dedicated myself to the business in my college years, I also picked up face painting and glitter tattoos! I also have a degree in early childhood education so children are basically my whole life and passion! I love being able to bring joy and excitement to any event. I'm the oldest daughter of 5 children so I think it's in my nature! I can make hundreds of balloon creations from princesses to superheroes to pretty much any animal under the sun! I've done all kinds of events from birthday parties to company picnics to holidays parties or church events!

I need a shaded or covered area since balloons and face paint don't respond well to direct sun or inclement weather, however for an additional fee I could bring my own tent.
