Bouncy castles. Amusement hires. And so much more. That is exactly what made for the entertainment at our grand family re-union last holiday. We topped it off with some excellent face painting for everyone, both kids and adults.
For a relatively small function such as ours, the company sent over just one artist, who impressed from the get-go by arriving on time. Ours was a no-theme party and she brought a collection of her designs in a book making it easier for everyone to choose what caught their fancy. Her way with the kids was just a delight to watch; speaking ever so gently to them, patiently listening to them and laughing with them.
So effortlessly and with the speed that can only come with a considerable amount of experience in the trade, the kids took turns having face-dos at her booth. As expected, superheroes, princesses and fairies and other Disney characters were the most popular designs and she pulled off each perfectly. She was done with the 16 kids at the functions well within the hour.
Even more impressive was her attention to proper hygiene and she kept changing her rinse water often. She was also very generous with the sponges and used a different one for everyone, which is a big relief as you never can know what may get unknowingly passed around in such a setting.
Her warm personality and what we could see was clearly some 5-star artistic talent drew even adults to her booth for a transformation of their own. Truly professional and courteous, everyone had nothing but a good word to say about their experience and even promised to invite her to future events.
Face painting made all the difference to our event. Pictures from the event are a reminder of just how much everyone loved having those beautiful face designs for the day.
