Do you require a booking fee?
Yes, to reserve your date we require a non-refundable booking fee for private engagements. When we book your date, we turn away other customers so this booking fee assures that we will hold the date and time for your event. Unless a prior agreement has been made, your booking will NOT be final until your booking fee and signed service agreement are received, so please get them in as soon as possible - thanks!

What types of payment do you accept?

Please do not pay any booking fees before we give you the "go ahead".

 

What is needed for artists to set up?

Our face and body artists (face painting, temporary tattoos, henna artists) require a safe area to set up -- away from any sources of loud music (bands, speakers), a regular height table and 2 chairs per artist. Weather protection is a must so if the artists are to set up outdoors, a tent/canopy is required. The exception would be where continuous full shade is provided by a large building (like a soundstage). Trees are not adequate protection for your guests, our artists or their materiels which are senstive to heat. Adequate lighting is necessary for our artists to work indoors and outside when event continues into the evening. When available, access to outlet and extension cord for airbrush artists and balloon artists. Access to drinking water and restrooms are needed for events longer than 3 hours.
