7 Steps to Hiring the Perfect Childrens Entertainer

for your Party:

The Ultimate Insider’s  Guide

 

Are you thinking about hiring a childrens entertainer for your child’s birthday party but not quite sure how to go about it? Well, no problem, we’ve got you covered!

Here’s our in-depth insider’s guide to hiring the perfect childrens entertainer for your party (from Kiki’s Faces & Balloons NYC , 10+ year veterans in the NYC kids party industry.)

 

How to hire a childrens entertainer for party kids birthday entertainment NYC parties events face painting balloons princesses

1.) CONSIDER: What TYPE of party entertainment is best?

First things to think about:

  • # of children expected
  • age range of the children
  • type of party venue + amount of space

For example:

For a very small group of kids (10-12 kids or less), a single kids entertainer w/ a combo of activities (ie: face painting & balloons) might be great!

Or maybe you’re having a party for 3 to 5-year-old girls? A Princess character visit might be absolutely perfect.

Or what about a larger party (over 15 kids)?  You might want larger-scale entertainment, like a traditional magician.

You might also want to consider 1-2  face painters and/or a balloon artist.

2.) Do a SEARCH for childrens entertainer companies in your area.

  • What’s the VIBE that you get from each company’s website? Do the photos of the entertainers and kids show fun, joy and skill/artistry? Also, go to the “About” page, and read about the background  and the people behind each company.
  •  
  • Does the company seem warm, friendly, and professional at the same time? (A good kids’ party entertainment company will have a nice combo of all those qualities.)
  •  
  • Finally, check out each company’s “client reviews” page.

 3.) Narrow it down: CONTACT your top 3-5 companies.

  • Contact by email/phone. Ask for availability + pricing.

 

  • Pay close attention to the COMMUNICATION that you receive. Are they friendly, professional and prompt with their emails or on the phone? Is their pricing clear, detailed and structured?

 

  • (The communication responses you get from each company will speak volumes about the quality of their entertainers + the actual company itself.)

 

4.) Weigh your options & make your CHOICE!

 How to hire a kids party entertainer guide NYC parties events face painting balloons princesses We recommend choosing a company based on:

  • The overall vibe that you get (photos, feel of the website, etc.)
  •  
  • Promptness, friendliness, + professionalism in communication
  •  
  • Their reviews

**One important thing to consider:

Cheapest is NOT the best when hiring an entertainer. Normally, the cheapest companies will NOT offer a very professional, reliable experience with super high-quality people.

To ensure peace of mind, and a great party experience, always go with high-quality over cheap pricing.

 

 

5.) Get a booking confirmation IN WRITING (very important!)

Childrens entertainer NYC Face Painting and Balloons Kids parties corporate events professional face painter and balloon artist NY birthday princess characters for hire balloonsA professional childrens event entertainment company will ALWAYS have a clearly written booking confirmation or contract.

(If you do not receive a written agreement, you should definitely ask for one!)

 

In this booking confirmation/agreement, you should see:

  • Date of party
  • Start time + end time for entertainment
  • Address of party
  • Exact rate structure
  • Payment instructions + due dates
  • Company policies (cancellations/emergencies, etc.)

A company will usually require a Deposit OR Payment in full to confirm.

 

6.)  Day-of-Party Details

Before the party date, it’s a good idea to ask what the party entertainer needs for set-up and performance.

For example, usually face painters need a table + two chairs, or a Princess or character will need a place to change into costume.

 

7.) Great job!

You did it! Now, you can relax, enjoy and have some fun at your party!
