Congratulations, the moment has finally happened! You’ve said yes and you’re looking forward to spending the rest of your life with your soulmate!

For many years planning a wedding has been relatively smooth sailing after someone pops the question. Engaged couples have had websites, apps, family, and friends on standby to help plan their big day. After the past year, the playbook for planning the celebration went out the window. Couples were postponing weddings, reinventing them virtually, and hosting the ceremony and reception months apart.

Couples who have postponed their weddings for weeks, months, or over a year are very excited for the return of wedding season! And it’s time to celebrate by hiring all the entertainment you’re going to need to celebrate this extra special day. WeddingWire recently shared the importance of hiring unique entertainment to be a part of your big day (our favorite recommendation was to hire a caricature artist!) Goofy Faces artists are experienced in bringing smiles, laughter, and entertainment to the newly married couple and their guests. Whether it is attending your happy hour, reception, or both, we don’t take up too much space but will fill the evening with memories and keepsakes for years to come.

Rather than postponing their wedding, some engaged couples have had to reinvent what the big day looks like. Weekday weddings are trending and many couples are taking advantage of it. Goofy Faces has over 500 artists nationwide and can be booked on weekdays. Just like a weekend celebration, our artists offer the same services during the week. That means that everyone gets a bag with each caricature to protect them and the bride and groom are still able to take cuts to the front of the line to get their live caricature drawn in minutes.

Hosting a reception months after getting married is still a huge celebration. Bringing your family and friends together for the first time in months is exciting and needs to be remembered. Goofy Faces can draw each of your family members individually or as couples while the rest of your family enjoys watching each drawing take shape!

Now that the 2021 wedding season has officially upon us, Goofy Faces artists are excited to be a part of your day. Our team is quick and easy to book and you’ll receive a response from us within 24 hours. Cannot get much quicker than that!

Worried about the costs? We’ve got you covered! We installed an easy-to-use wedding artists cost calculator on our Goofy Faces Website. Feel free to visit our site for more information in regards to booking an artist for your big day. If you have any questions feel free to give us a call at (248) 652-8910!

Don’t just take it from us, here’s what some of our amazing Goofy Faces clients have said about our artists!

Angela from Southgate, Michigan said. “Both artists were amazingly talented and genuinely nice people. We enjoyed having them at our event and would hire them again in a second.”

Elisha R. said, “Our artists arrived early, began early, and even stayed late to make sure everyone who wanted a picture was able to get one. Thanks!”

Lastly, J.D. from Lawrence, Kansas said, “We were absolutely in love with our artist. She was fast, friendly, and efficient. We received many requests to bring her to our future events and the fee was extremely reasonable. I would book from Goofy Faces again in a heartbeat!”

Each and every artist that we employ loves what they do and want to make sure that your event is a memorable experience. Invite us to your wedding. We look forward to celebrating with you soon!

Fun Facts about (Drink) Coasters!

By Robert Bauer | September 20, 2019 |

What do you think about when someone says “coaster?” The ever-present drink coaster as we know them today has been around nearly 140 years!

A Brief History

In 1880 Friedrich Horn, a German printing company, designed the first cardboard beer mats, as they are sometimes called. Shortly after, the Robert Sputh Company of Dresden started making them out of wood pulp.

Today you can find drink coasters protecting tables and bars from condensation in nearly every bar, restaurant and home. They come in many materials, including wood, cardboard, bamboo, cork, marble, sandstone, slate and unglazed ceramics. The best drink coasters are porous and absorb condensation from the glass.

Face Painting Facts

By Robert Bauer | July 24, 2019 |

The Facts About Face Painting

 

Face painting only became popular at children’s parties, theme parks and events in the 1980s, though for centuries, human beings have painted their faces and their bodies.

During tribal ceremonies, military actions, sports activities and religious rituals, putting paint or ink on our bodies has been a part of the human experience for as long as history has been recorded. Even permanent tattooing, while long stigmatized as rebellious or undesirable, is increasing in popularity.

Today, face painting is soaring in popularity. It’s a great way to raise the bar on the entertainment value of any party or corporate event. Kids and adults both love the long-lasting sense of fantasy it creates. They also love that it’s non-toxic and easy to remove. So what is there to know about face painting?

 

A lot! Here are some basics:

Face Painting

Who does face painting?

The face painters that you can hire through Goofy Faces are artists first, face painters second. Many make their living with their art and travel the country working at events. We recruit and vet each artist to make sure that they have both a strong talent and solid customer service skills because we want your guests to have the best possible experience.

 

How is a face painter trained?

Most face painters have attended multiple workshops and seminars to learn their craft. Face painters are required to create realistic-looking scales, horns, fur, feathers, butterfly wings and more textures and designs. These techniques take hours of practice to master. We also train our artists on popular designs and characters.

 

Face Painting

What kind of products do face painters use?

Goofy Faces artists use high-grade professional body paints and glitters, in vibrant colors that don’t fade. These cosmetic-grade, non-toxic products are not permanent or even semi-permanent, so they’re relatively early to remove. Our artists also follow standard sanitation practices, cleaning brushes, stencils and other materials with industrial-strength disinfectant products.

 

 

Face Painting

It’s a bad idea to cheap out on your face painting artist.

A true face painting artist can add something really special to a party. Whether they’re painting crowns on princes and princesses, turning little boys into lizards or livening up an adult party, most people love the experience. It’s Instagram-ready, too.

Unfortunately, if you’re not careful, you can end up with an inexperienced artist whose work may disappoint your guests. You can avoid that by reviewing the artist’s portfolio of images, to make sure their artwork meets your standards. (Or just hire one through Goofy Faces – our artists are all good!)
