Uncle Rich & Auntie Sue – Balloon Art & Face Painting

(630) 430-3279
Website | Email | Facebook

Birthday parties are all about a fun and memorable experience. This is something I have provided for over 23 years as a balloon twister, a balloon bender, or even a balloon artist.

There is something magical about balloon animals and other balloon designs that kids of all ages enthusiastically enjoy. Whether it be a birthday party, business promotion, school fun fair, company picnic, or any other type of event, the children exhibit great joy when receiving their balloon. Years ago my wife decided it wasn’t fair for me to have all the fun, so she also learned simple balloon designs and face painting, and now you may choose to have both of us at your event for twice the fun!
