LIFE OF THE PARTY!
Devorah was an absolute hit at my daughter’s 4th birthday party. Her experience as an early childhood educator was so evident during the event. She is kind, loving, and respectful and all of the children instantly felt comfortable with her. She corralled nearly 30 children through a music circle, jam session, arts and crafts, and balloon twisting.
All of the parents at the party commented on how incredibly she was with the children. They trusted her enough to head upstairs and relax for a bit!
Lastly, I personally loved chatting with her leading up to the event. She is a joy to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a gentle, caring, and experienced educator/moderator for a children’s event!

Devorah did face painting and balloon twisting at my son's birthday party. If I could rate her better than 5 stars I would. She was so incredibly great with the kids and patient. The facepaiting was out of this world. The kids did not want to wash their faces at the end of the night. The balloon twisting was incredible. She is an amazing, kind spirited, hard-working entertainer. She made all the kids feel happy and comfortable. I would highly recommend her!! For days after our party I had parents reaching out complimenting her and explaining how their kids had the best time at this party because of her! If you are reading this review trust me and look no further. This is the person you want at your party.

A MUST HAVE GUEST FOR YOUR NET EVENT!
Devorah is an absolute must hire! She was so wonderful at our daughter's first birthday, where we had about 30 kids to entertain. Dressed as an adorable bumble bee, she held the attention and created excitement for kids aged 1-7! They were mesmerized! She then did balloons and face painting. She was so sweet, inclusive, a dream to work with and have as part of our special day. Devorah, you are the best! We can't wait to have you back! :)

Devorah came to do a music circle at our home. She showed up early to set up. She was able to keep fifteen toddlers engaged and interested for one hour of music, singing, and introducing the children to musical instruments. She is also a lovely, kind and enthusiastic person. We highly recommend her!

Devorah did a fantastic job for us. She entertained our customer’s children at a corporate event, and we had tons of happy little customers. She has a very happy, friendly personality and is gentle and patient when relating to children. They loved their face painting and balloon twisting. She was such a hit that we had adults come by and want their faces painted too! She’s a “can’t miss” at any children’s event. We look forward to having her back.

I am beyond honored I found Devorah online. I booked her for my daughter’s 5th birthday and I must say she is worth her price and more!! Devorah from the very beginning was very communicative and professional. She remained in contact with me every step of the way. At my daughter’s party Devorah’s energy was very open, peaceful, and welcoming! Devorah, was also welcoming to the big kids (adults) who wanted their faces painted and nurtured their inner child! I would absolutely book Devorah again and if you’re wondering if you should, let this be the review that confirms your choice! Devorah will be a great addition to any party you are having!!!

Wonderful - Highly recommended!
Devorah was so good with the kids, and very professional - a great communicator throughout the whole process. Her face painting skills are out of this world, and the kids loved the balloon twisting. She made my daughter's 7th birthday party extra special. She has a kind and vibrant energy that really resonated with the kids. Thank you again Devorah!!

Absolutely amazing job! Devorah is truly an artist! Her designs are not simple; instead, she creates a work of art through her face painting! I have attached photos to showcase the perfectly whimsical designs she created for our children & the guests at our daughter’s birthday party! Devorah is a kind & friendly person; she’s very thorough with her work; she assured us of her safe allergy-friendly paints; arrived on time; made sure everyone had a chance to be face painted; and she even balloon twisted when there was extra time left. If you are looking for a wonderful & professional face painter/balloon twister, please trust me & look no further, because you should call Devorah!

...All I can say is...WHAT A JOY!! We had a party of 10 children aging from 2 years old all the way up to about 7 years old, and Devorah captivated all the children and adults for hours. Between her wonderful guitar playing and singing, very fun show, where she interacted with EVERYONE, and the amazing animal balloons, SHE WAS A HIT!!!! The children had an amazing time, and me, as a parent needs to do nothing more than just enjoy the show!! Devorah used some of my son's favorite people, grandma, and grandpa, uncles etc. ...to get my son' to interact, and in a very loving way, included every child in the fun. I would most definitely recommend Devorah to anyone! And, I will think of her when I need anything along these lines again. Thank you Devorah! You were the highlight of our party!!!!!

I write with utmost enthusiasm to express my gratitude for and admiration of the work of Devorah, who has been our private music teacher for the past 4 years. She brings the magic of her personality and music program, teaching the fundamentals of music and movement. Using carefully selected music, impeccably organized and planned classes... Devorah develops personal relationships with her students and harvests their success...Devorah conducts herself with utmost professionalism...and clearly brings her heart, care, thoughtfulness into her work...She brings the gift of high quality music education, genuine nurturing of the student's development, and the most personal and warm, yet unfailingly professional manner with her students and clients. I wholeheartedly endorse and recommend Deovrah's work with children (and people) of all ages, and in any capacity. She enriches the lives of her students, brings endless smiles to the people around her, and she is an inspiration to educators everywhere.

Devorah has the patience of a saint! She spent two days face painting at an event with me and she was patient, caring and came out with some of the most beautiful face paintings I've seen! I would hire her again and your should too! Not only did she get herself there, but she also got a second to paint for both days which was immensely helpful . She is organized and made sure they had everything they needed in order to be professional and do a great job! She is outstanding!!

Hi Devorah! Wow!...Thank you for a fantastic job!! The kids and families loved you and so did we! The Grand Opening was a success...Every time I saw you, there was a line of kids just ready to have their faces painted. I will remember you for future events, and Thank you for being a part of this one - it was truly special!!

Devorah was a huge factor in the success of our event. Children, parents, and all in attendance, were delighted by her professionalism, expertise, and talent. The children were won over by Devorah's gentle approach and good cheer. We are fans of Devorah and hope to have her assist us in making lasting memories with our staff and families in the future.

I hired Devorah to do a singing balloon telegram for my daughter's birthday. She was great with her routine, the ballon bouquet, and the ballon shapes were great! My daughter was so shocked and surprised, and she and her co-worker's enjoyed a special time with Devorah! Thanks so much!
O. Trujillo, Española, NM
I would like to highly recommend Devorah for any event you might have. She is awesome!! She arrived early in her adorable costume, and got set up before our picnic started. She was vary talented with the face painting - all the kids looked fantastic! They were very happy with their designs!! They were beautiful. They also liked the balloon art. She is a professional, and she is great with kids! They loved her! We will be using her again.

Devorah came to my daughter's 5th birthday party, and she was such a hit. We had 22 kids at the party. She got them up moving with singing, puppets, and dancing for about 1.5 hours. The kids loved her!...She did animal balloons and face painting and even when she was done with the kids, she went around to make sure they all still had their balloons, and if they didn't or if they wanted another balloon, she gave them what they wanted. I would totally recommend her for a party! She was amazing! Thank you!
-Celia Munk, Albuquerque, NM
Devorah has a magical presence and an amazing ability to keep very young kids engaged throughout her music classes. She tunes into each child's creativity, gifts, and interests. I love that she introduces real musical concepts in a fun way and that the children connect with music and movemnet. I highly recommend signing up for Devorah's music program!
-Acushla, Santa Fe, NM
We loved having Devorah come over to entertain young guests at our daughter's 7th birthday party. Devorah was very patient in answering all of our questions before booking. She is punctual, came fully prepared, and immediately took over the duties of entertaining about 20 kids - ages 2 through 9. All through the show, balloon art, face painting, and various other games, she kept the kids engaged and I could tell they were just captivated by her presence. Even the adults found the hour and a half that she spent with the kids entertaining. She was gentle with the kids, guiding them through all the games, and answered all of their requests and questions with a smile. My kids loved Devorah, and we would recommend her wholeheartedly.
- Ash, Albuquerque, NM
As a grandparent, having Devorah at our grandson, Tucker's birthday party was just wonderful. Her presence added so much fun and joy to the party. It was well worth it. She really enjoyed being with the children with a positive caring attitude for all.
