PARTY PLANNING TIPS AND PARTY ENTERTAINMENT IDEAS
How to hire party entertainment, for adult and kids parties.
Here are some good ideas for parties and some party tips.
Birthday parties are real big these days, but it is still quite difficult to find the right party entertainer.
With the right information you can be your own party planner.
I will give you some ideas for event entertainment.
Some people find their entertainment through dj services, party planners.
Wedding dj’s provide wedding music as well as entertainers, but look to pay a little more.
A cool idea is jukebox rentals; they are a great sweet 16.
Disc jockeys also offer dancers, music, karaoke, games and fun giveaways to the kids.
Dj’s have favors like funny hats, blow up guitars, giant glasses, and glow necklaces. A disc jockey can cost as high as $8500.00, but are much more reasonable than a wedding band. The lower price range for a disk jockey is $400.00. Top wedding bands can cost up to $10,000.00 for New York City wedding receptions.
A bounce house is fun for a kid’s birthday celebration. Most inflatable can be rented out for the day. Hiring costumed characters such as Elmo are good ideas for little children. Make sure the agency offers Polaroid’s with the costumed character. At children’s parties or birthday, clowns can keep kids busy. Clowns can scare some little kids. Some activities a clown offers are magic, face painting, jugglers, tell jokes, stilt walkers and balloons. Most entertainers require a deposit to reserve a date.

Clowns do short shows as little as a half hour. If you would like the clown to do all the activities they offer, you’ll need more time. A clown is a good value for most children’s birthday parties and can range from $75.00 for the hour to $200.00 for the hour.
Some magicians work more as corporate entertainers for children. Magicians are a great idea for strolling as well; they can go table to table or do magic shows. Some magicians can also be a balloon artist. A magician at will stay about half an hour to one hour. A magician can run from $75.00 for the hour to $300.00 for the hour. A casino can work well for a corporate events, Christmas parties, and fund raisers. A stage hypnotist and a casino can be expensive for most corporate functions. Consider a tarot card reader, though it’s a very slow process to read the cards. Consider an airbrush artist to do t-shirts, costs increase due to buying the shirts. Another idea is a caricature artist entertainer. A cartoonist sketches quick comical cartoon portraits. This makes an excellent kid birthday entertainment. A caricatures double as a party entertainment and a party favor. A caricature artist is great entertainment. A caricaturist is also fun to watch. The party artist sketches live at parties. Caricaturist’s specialize in trade shows.Caricature drawings also are one of the great holiday occasion ideas. An idea for a wedding is a caricature entertainment. At weddings a caricaturist provides a unique wedding favor. Older kids love caricatures at a graduation party. I’ve done late night events called “Project Graduation”, at these activities parents are the organizers. You can hire caricaturists from the low end of $75.00 per hour for an art student up to $200.00 per hour for a professional caricaturist. Hiring an entertainer for New Year’s Eve can cost almost double. Other holidays may result in higher premiums on certain dates. Entertainers do also book early for Christmas, so consider reserving their service ASAP.
