The show itself runs 40 to 45 minutes. If balloon sculptures and or face painting are included additional time will be needed.
15 minutes once they get their items to the performance area. It’s a good idea to allow the magicians these minutes in privacy so all the things the kids see forthcoming are surprises. This is a great opportunity to photograph the expressions of amazement and wonder on your guests faces.
Simply moving the coffee table and giving the kids and area to sit on the floor is fine. It is remarkable what a backdrop that erects in seconds can do to add a sense of wonder to the party.
Yes, but keep in mind all the variables that can cause havoc at outdoor parties. Obviously weather plays a huge role, rain, heat, cold and wind can sap the fun from a party quickly. Also the neighbors lawn mowers, chain saws and barking dogs can put a real damper on the party. We suggest allowing the guest to arrive and play outside during the first 30 minutes or so this allows stragglers time to get to the party. Then bring the kids into the performance area. After the show then open the presents and lastly do the cake and ice cream.
Gary can perform theme shows: he has a Pirate themed, a Princess themed and a Harry Potter wizards party. Holiday shows are numerous including Halloween and Christmas and the 4th of July. Given enough notice Gary can build a show around most any party theme.
