I recently attended Kid Fest in Saint Louis Park with my 
two year old son.  My son's favorite part of the event was the Dora 
cter.  According to Kathe, your company provided the Dora 
character.  The woman wearing the costume was great with the kids, 
interacting with them without scaring them.  Please send my thanks to 
the woman wearing the costume.

I wanted to THANK YOU, and make sure you tell whoever it was that played Barney and did the balloons - he was WONDERFUL!! Oh my goodness - it was a hit!  Izabella was SOOO excited - when he came in the door "That's Barney" and she played with him and hugged on him - when he left "Bye bye Barney" - she was all over it.  She wasn't into the balloons, BUT the older kids - they loved it!!!  It was absolutely perfect - all the age groups were happy.
So thank you - and you can be assured that I will be spreading the word about Happy Faces Entertainment!!!!

Hi Lorraine and ALL of my Happy Faces Friends, 
I usually send hand written notes out, but, It has been so busy at work and trying to get all of my 2010 Event wrap-up things together, I wanted to be sure and get this out to you.  It  was FANTASTIC again this year.  All of my events were perfect.  I only wish we had more then one day to celebrate.
Please, please thank yourself and your co-heart face painter for the beautiful art work, Kenny who is the best magician I have ever known and a fantastic person and of course, the wonderful costumed characters (all the kids and adults really fell in love with them).  I can't express how much Happy Faces means to me and has been there for me over the past years.
So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you all and hope to see you all in 2011.

First – my sincere apologies for how delayed this note is – ugh! Second – WOW – happy faces was a huge hit at Michaela’s Bat Mitzvah party on June 12th,  Everyone loved them both and they turned out so awesome! I loved the border on the 5 x 7 size and the glitter art was great too!! Thank you so much for making this happen for us – it’s tuned out to be on of the best parts of the entire weekend. You did a great job. Lorraine, thank you. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you or refer to you or use you again.

Everything went very well at our Company picnic. Thank you so much for your help in getting this together on such short notice. The kids were so entertained, it was great. The clown with the balloons was the biggest help/hit. The face painting was good and the reader from what I heard was great. People were a little shy at first to go to the readings but it worked out once they started. LaughingM.D. Austin, MN, Oct 2011

I wanted to let you know that we had Joanie out for our party last week and that she did an excellent job!  We were very happy with her professionalism and ability to relate to the 16-year-old girls at the party as well as the very nice job she did entertaining them.
I would highly recommend your services (and Joanie's) to a friend and thought you'd like to know.

We're calling about our day care party,  we had the most wonderful Santa. I mean we were just so pleased with him. He really spent a lot of time with the kids, talking with the parents, singing songs and reading a story. We want to book the same Santa next year. Thank you ever so much. Like I said we were very very pleased with him. Happy holidays and Happy new year. Talk to you next year
