We had Midwest Fun Factory for my sons first Birthday last week. She was very professional. On time. She used rhinestones, sprinkles and glitter on her art. She was very sweet to the kids. All the parents loved how fast and how awesome her face paintings were. More...

Another year, another incredible balloon masterpiece! This Pokémon creation was not at all what I was expecting and I couldn’t have been happier with the outcome! Thanks Midwest Fun Factory!

Mireille is a very talented face painter / artist. She does beautiful work, and I had nothing but wonderful compliments about her talent and professionalism. I had Mireille not once, but twice, at both of my girls' First Birthday Parties. She's not only fun for the kiddos, but adults too. She was extremely easy to work with and her responses were almost immediate. I highly recommend Mireille for parties for all ages... She brings smiles to the faces of all! More...

Amazing to work with and the kids loved her at my my daughter's 5th birthday party! We tried to tell the kids that we would call them for their turn, but they wanted to wait in line and watch her paint faces! The same when it came time for balloons! The parents loved it too. Mirae is amazing at reading the kids and figuring out just how long they can sit still and manages to get even the shyest ones to share what they want in terms of balloon colors. Can't wait to have her back for another party! 10 stars out of 5!! More...

I contacted through messenger and got an almost instant response on pricing. I told her what I was looking for and within minutes she had a suggestion. We were so happy with he result and my daughter was so excited about her birthday balloon surprise. I’d use MFF again! More...

Mireille did an amazing job at my daughter’s 3rd birthday party! She is super talented and quick as well. My daughter should be her roadie because she wants to follow her wherever she’s doing face painting :)

I cannot say enough about Mireille and Midwest Fun Factory, inc! She has been the face painter at our elementary school Daddy/Daughter Dances, Halloween Parties and as an event planner I have hired her for other parties, as well. She is quick to respond, reliable, fun and works efficiently to get as many faces painted in the time allotted as possible, not to mention her work is the best I’ve seen! And her talents aren’t limited to face painting...check out her balloons, too! I highly recommend Mireille for your next event - large or small. More...

Extremely prompt communication during booking process, easy to work with. We hired her for a 1st birthday party & all the kids LOVED the face painting & balloon animals, dolls & fun things! Myself along with other parents are raving about how awesome she was & I was asked multiple times for her contact info for future hire � for their kids’ parties! We were amazed that while us parents were talking to her she was balloon twisting an adorable fish with bubbles & pole without even once looking at the balloons, WOW! She is extremely patient & great with the kids no matter the age. 2 thumbs up � 5 stars � will be are go to for all kids parties ��� Thanks again for the fabulous fun! More...

Mireille is a talented, generous person who will help make any event special with her creative artistry. She donated her time and talent by providing balloon art to my son’s Eagle Scout project and continues to help at various local school and community events. She does beautiful work on her balloon creations as well as does awesome face painting, pallet painting and creates unique personalized gifts. Her art will most definitely make you smile and you will undoubtedly be thrilled with the finished product whether it decorates a table at your special event, the walls of your home or your child’s beautiful face!!

What a great experience having Mireille at our Grand Opening last weekend! Kids loved it! And her facepainting and balloon animals/Elsa/swords made everyone smile. Highly recommend! She's professional, timely and clearly knows what she's doing. With all to prepare for the day and the chaos of the day, it was wonderful to have her come in with a no problem attitude, set up...and create such beautiful art without adding any stress to me! Totally worth it! More...
