Best Elsa ever!
We hired Elsa (Amanda) for our daughters 5th birthday party. We highly recommend hiring Amanda - she made our daughter's birthday so special. She arrived on time, set up quickly and had lots of fun activities to do. She stayed in character the whole time, and wore her mask the entire time as well. It was a great experience for everyone . Thank you! We will book again in the future.

Susan was very sweet and patient with my granddaughter. She let her decide what activities to do. It was very cute to see my grandaughters face when the Yellow Princess walked in. I would recommend this service to all of my friends.

We hired a Santa Claus from Happily Ever parties for a company event. He looked very realistic and did a great job taking photos with the children.

Our soon-to-be 5 year old daughter is a huge fan of Moana and had requested that she be invited to her birthday party. She was amazed when Breana showed up and quickly became her best friend. She was dressed perfectly in character, played games with the kids, did face painting and tattoos and even helped our daughter blow out the candle on her cake (we would've been there all night otherwise). Thank you, Breana, for making her feel so special on this day.

The kids were enthralled. And not sure if you noticed but M and her friend G hid behind the clubhouse sign to watch you walk away and I heard then say to each other "They really were the real princesses". Priceless! Thanks for bringing so much heart and a lot magic to her special day!!!!

We had a great party yesterday. My daughter just loved Ms. Breana (Snow Queen). We were very happy with her,she did her part good. I worked hard to give our daughter a great party. I made the cake and me and my husband did the decoration and made the balloon arch. The Snow Queen made the kids happy. Everything was perfect. My friends are going to book her, you will get more business.

Santa did a great a job. He took the time to share with every child. He read a book to all them and signed songs with them. All kids were really excited.

Santa Steve was wonderful. He arrived a little early and spent wonderful quality time with the kiddos. He sang song, played knock, knock jokes, took pictures and visited with each child individually. He was just amazing. You are welcome at our house anytime, Santa.

Was able to get the Snow Queen to come to our party with less than 48 hours
notice. She was professional and engaging. My 3 year old was rapt the
whole time. Would use again!

I was a little skeptical booking a Santa online for a big neighborhood
event, but it couldn't have been better. The process was smooth, Santa
arrived and the kids were happy. The communication was great -- very
responsive and professional. Thanks again!

Was really impressed with Happily Ever, had great customer service
and better pricing than other companies I found in our area. We had
long haired princess stop by my 3 year olds birthday party and do a 30
minute meet and greet. It was perfect for our little girl, who was
attached at the hip to the sweet princess for the entire 30 minutes.
The princess arrived on time and was very professional. Everything went
exactly as planned.

The Snow Queen and Snow Princess were a huge hit at our block party! The sing a long was a favorite! Their costumes were amazingly detailed and both ladies are so talented. They were on time and so sweet with all the kiddos. I would choose them again in a heartbeat! I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Happily Ever After Parties!

I wanted to write this email almost the same day of the party but you know how hard it can be to complete something when you have kids :).

I wanted to write a review for Anna , she played "Snow Princess" at a birthday party of the family I nanny for.
We were absolutely blown away with "Anna's" performance! She came in full of energy and in character! Not once did she steer away from her character. She captured the attention of all the children and ALL OF THE PARENTS!!!
Throughout the party, I could hear whispers of "Wow, isn't she amazing", "She is a perfect Snow Princess", "I wish I had her energy" and so on! After we heard her sing part of a Frozen song, we couldn't resist asking her to sing some more! She is a true talent! I think Disney should give her a call!

Sleeping Beauty Party
We had the Pink Princess come to our party and she did a wonderful job with all the kids. We had about 15 kids and they we all well entertained. She kept their attention the whole time and the look on their little faces when she came through the door was priceless. I will definitely recommend this to anyone having a party. Even the boys had a great time at the princess party.

We were very pleased with Anna's performance. I highly recommend.

Our princesses were spectacular, on time, and just had the most beautiful voices. The children were transported to a magical place. We truly had a Happily Ever After experience! My 5 year old daughter and her friends are still talking about it!

Thank you so much for the awesome experience.
Snow queen (Amanda A) at our party was a big hit. My daughter was so thrilled to see Snow queen. Elsa (Amanda) was great. My daughter still talks about her. She gave so much attention to all the kids. Couldn't have asked for more.
Thank you Amanda,once again, for your service. That 1 hr was magical for my daughter.

I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for making my daughters' birthday party last weekend a truly magical event! Snow Queen (Anna) and Snow Princes (Vanessa) were fantastic and instantly won over the hearts of my birthday girls and all the other guests at the party.

Snow Queen was fabulous!
My Snow Queen obsessed daughter was delighted by a surprise visit by the Snow Queen at her 4th birthday party yesterday. The Snow Queen (aka Vanessa) was so sweet with her and the other kids, she is gorgeous and has a really lovely singing voice. The highlight was my daughter got to sing Let it Go with her, and she can't stop talking about it. Vanessa took great photos with all the kids, and was ever so patient as the little girls grilled her about all things Frozen. One of the girls said "It's just that I've never met the REAL Elsa before, so I had a lot of questions!" So sweet. Vanessa also brought a gift for the birthday princess which was very sweet and my daughter loved it and felt very special. Happily Ever via Gig Salad was easy to work with, and I would highly recommend Vanessa as The Snow Queen and would definitely use Happily Ever again, and will continue using Gig Salad.'

My daughter was delighted with the Pink Doll Princess sent to our party! She arrived on-time and communication before that was great! Once she arrived I loved the attention she gave to my daughter and how she pleased her in every single way (even went into the bouncy house with her!) I TOTALLY RECOMMEND HAPPILY EVER PARTIES!!!

The Arabian Princess was wonderful. Kept the line of communication open and fit in very well. It was a bit different than what she's used to but she did an amazing job going with the flow and interacting with the kids especially the birthday girl. Would definitely recommend and use these services again!

The Snow queen (Anna) was amazing! The kids were mesmerized. She never broke character. What a great improviser! She entertained them by telling stories, face painting, playing games, singing and dancing. When she started singing , everyone was shocked at her beautiful voice. She truly made our party!
