How do I book your services?
Is a deposit required? Yes. most events require a deposit to book. See T&C below.
How long should I book the artists for? Typically, the length of time to book the entertainment for is determined by the number of guests you want us to entertain. For the best experience, 1 of our balloon artists can entertain 8-12 kids/guests per hour, 15 max. This gives your artist time to make the bigger and fancier balloons.
What about schools or company events with hundreds of guest? For events with big crowds, we can increase the number of artists and reduce the balloon choices & airbrush designs to accommodate more guests.
When should we start the entertainment? We recommend starting the entertainment 30 min after the party starts. This allows for late arrivals. But remember to save parking for your entertainer.
Do you wear costumes? The short answer is, no we don't. We will dress "up" for certain occasions., such as holiday season, Halloween etc. Our typical attire is what you see in the picture to the above. We consider ourselves balloon artists not costumed characters or clowns.
What are my payment options? Our artists accept cash, Venmo, Zelle etc, A Credit Card option is available through the website only.
Do you charge a booking Fee? Only for company/corporate events that require extra preparation. Not for private events, such as birthday parties.
Are you insured? We carry Liability coverage of $1 mil per occurrence/$2 mil aggregate.
What do I need to prepare and how much space do you need? We bring our own tables and chairs. Please provide shade if outdoors. If indoors, the area should be up against a wall and somewhere where the guests can form a line without causing a traffic jam. Area needed for activities: Balloons -5’ x 5’, Airbrushing – 5’ x 5’, Fill-A-Bubble- 8’ x 4’, Photo Booth – 10'x10'.
Is the set-up time included? We typically schedule enough time to load-in and be ready to start your event at our scheduled time. (we will always call if we're running behind schedule.)
Can you perform outside or in a public park Yes! As long as there is shade for the guests and entertainers. We cannot be in direct sunlight. Direct sunlight is harmful for the equipment and supplies and will make it malfunction. For events in parks and public spaces, permission and permits must be obtained by the hiring party.
Do you travel outside the South Bay? Yes, we do! There may be a minimum time and/or a travel fee for events outside the South Bay. Please understand, time spent on the road is less time we can spend entertaining.
Is tipping necessary? Tipping is very much appreciated but completely up to you.
What is your cancellation & rescheduling policy? Our cancellation/rescheduling policy requires a minimum of 1 week's notice. This allows us to book a replacement event and reschedule the artists accordingly. Once your event is booked and scheduled, we turn down other requests, which may leave the artists out of work if the event is cancelled too close to the event date. In such cases, the paid deposit goes to the artists. However, if we are able to book a similar event to replace the cancelled event, we will gladly return the deposit to you. We understand the importance of fair compensation for artists and the need to manage scheduling and bookings effectively.
TERMS & CONDITIONS. Cancellations, rescheduling, postponing, changes or reduction in the entertainment time or options, for any reason, including but not limited to COVID or Weather, must be sent by email at least 1 week before the event date. Failure to give 7 days notice will result in the forfeiture of the deposit. Please note that there will be no credit or rain check issued for any cancellations, rescheduling, postponing. By paying the deposit, you have agreed to our terms and conditions, including our cancellation policy. Payment for services rendered and/or any remaining balance is due on the day of the event unless otherwise agreed upon by both parties.
