ASK ABOUT OUR PARTY PACKAGES
i.e. if you have 12 or less children and hire Arla, specifically, you can get the super party where she can do both face painting AND balloons in only one hour. Add glitter tattoos for a deluxe party which lasts about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Or get the SUPER DELUXE party which lasts about 2.5 hours for that many children and adds either the games, henna (for older children, or the giant bubble package. These packages are available for more than 12 children for longer periods of time. Inquire by calling Arla at 703-901-2752
Henna is a safe means of having a "tattoo" for approximately 2-3 weeks. Henna actually stains the layers of skin. Arla only uses real henna. (NEVER have black henna done as it can cause permanent scarring.) Arla recommends that children be at least 10-12 years of age before doing henna, as if it smears it looks like "poop" on the skin and who whats that for 2-3 weeks?! If you want more complicated henna, Arla has cohorts that do much much more detailed designs than that to the left.
Glitter tattoos are non-permanent tattoos that will last 4-7 days with the proper care. Glitter tattoos
are not the ones from the dollar store. They are applied with medical adhesive and bright, sparkly
glitter in all sorts of colors. Arla can do about 15 glitter tattoos in an hour. 100% safe for skin,
glitter tattoos are a good alternative to face painting in the summer time when children are running
around and sweating. Having a pool party? Glitter Tattoos are water-resistant and great for pool parties.
You can even shower and wash them with soap and they "won't come off". If you WANT them off, just use
oil and alcohol and rub them away.
Giant bubbles are not the bubbles you buy at the dollar store. They are GIANT 3 foot plus
bubbles. This activity is a minimum two hour party and can be done either indoors (by putting
children inside bubbles) or outdoors 4 x 10 foot bubbles as pictured below. IF it's an outdoor
party, we can arrange for the kids to have their own bubble trays to make their own bubbles.
This is not a regular bubble solution that a parent can do at home. It is a special "cooked" recipe
specifically made for giant bubbles. Take pictures of the kids in the bubbles to remember
for a lifetime!
Sculptured balloons are fun for children of the ages 4-??? They are usually two or more balloon items. They can range from headbands as pictured to the right, to armbands, to dogs, aliens, cats, and more. Arla can do over 30 different balloons, so if you want, every child at the party can have a different balloon. Balloons are not for the age of 3 and under for safety purposes. If the children are 8 or over, Arla can teach them to make their own balloons. This gives the children a sense of accomplishment....and each child goes home with a balloon or two.
Arla Also offers balloon decor, such as centerpieces, balloon walls, columns, arches, etc. Call for pricing. 703-901-2752
When Arla paints bodies, it's a serious business. There is nothing sexual to it, only ART related. Arla tries to capture a mood or a feeling when she paints. Bodies can be totally painted or partially (with a bathing suit), or just from the waist up if you want. Most designs take about 4 hours or so. Email Arla what you'd like to be painted and she'll give you a price. Arla@Facesbyarla.com
Arla also does gestational art or pregnant belly painting. This usually takes an hour or less and is best done in the 9th month of pregnancy since the belly is really firm.
It's fun to do this at baby showers. However, if you'd rather do
it in privacy, you can come to Arla's studio to have it painted.
Most of our artists draw at the rate of about 10 per hour, which is the industry standard.
Santa and Mrs. Clause & their elves
Need them other than in November and December? Just ask.
Games can be any of the following;
*Balloon games (shooting balloons with fingers) 1) See who can shoot the balloon the farthest, 2) having a child walk with a balloon hoop on their head and having all the other children shoot the balloons through the hoop. This is fun for the kids as well as the walker.
*Parachute games (if you have enough space)
*Activity games (physical activity played with
the children) Can be done in a house or outside.
Services offered by Faces By Arla and Company
Stilt walkers and jugglers
Face painting is fun and entertaining for children and adults of all ages. Face
painting is done with paints that have FDA approved ingredients for the
skin. As a rule, unless requested otherwise, they are full faces. This is fun for
the children because they get to BECOME the characters they are painted. The
paint washes off easily with soap and water. Because the paint is water
soluable, this is not a good item to use for pool parties as the paint will wash
off in the water. (See glitter tattoos for pool parties below.) Arla will paint
any age child as most of the paints she uses are made specifically for
children. Don't want full face painting? Arla can paint hands, cheeks,
arms, and feet too! If you book early enough to get Arla, she can paint at least
20 faces per hour.
