At almost every birthday party, everyone showers the birthday child with love and affection. But hey! Look who went through all that 9 months of backaches and then many more sleepless nights spent nursing a hungry baby? Good Ole Mummy!

So, as we turn 3, we celebrate motherhood!

Just give ourselves 5 mins to be thankful to our moms. Thank her for her awesome cooking, thank her for returning our childhood tantrums with patience, thank her for unlocking the door for us when we came home at unearthly hours of the night. Too many things she did for us that we didn’t say much about because we thought she’d know.

You’ll survive your less-than-perfect week with a smile on your face and a heart of patient grace because that special someone will always be loving you no matter what. And now it’s your turn to be that special someone for your own little one.

Here’s some good news for you if you happen to be planning your kids birthday party amidst your busy schedule! Teleport straight to talking with our kids party planners here!

See how our little one has grown over the past few years. Growing through each milestone with the support from the many mummies (and a handful of daddies – the rarity of sorts who do the party planning).

2012 – The Face Painter

Alicia found her passion for face painting after she became an accidental face painter at a kids party.

2013 – The Mission

Happier Singapore was born! Alicia quit her job at a VC firm, and threw away 4 years of slogging for Dean’s list in NUS Psychology. Crazy? Psycho, more like it. But making Singapore a happier place for families is her calling. Happier.SG grew by opportunity. Whatever you asked for, we tried to make it happen! Balloon sculpting, Balloon Decoration, Kids Magic Show, Mascots & Costumed Characters, Kids Party Photo Booth, even coming up with our personalized service, Name Art Calligraphy of popular cartoon characters, whatever it took to make your kids birthday a happier one! We were also recognised as Top Face Painting Company in Singapore 6 months into our launch.

2014 – The Wedding

The Happier team put up their first wedding party for Mr & Mrs Happier! Read about our Kids Party Themed Military Wedding.

2015 – The Team

More people are believing in our mission to make Singapore a happier place for families. Happier.SG is growing its dedicated team of artists from all walks of life. Mother and Baby magazine tells our story beautifully here.

2016 – The Present

Still yet to unfold, our heart tells us we would love to do more for couples. Newly wed or wed for the longest time ever. Parent or yet-to-be. Two people who share a special union of a selfless decision to think as “we” and are committed to helping each other grow for the better. That’s something worth celebrating isn’t it? Happier families start with happier couples.

For party enquiries, chat us up at sales@happier.sg or +65 9271 7106!

We’re at events more often than not, so if you can’t talk to us, email us please!

Yours Playfully,

Face Painting or Balloon Sculpting? Which is more popular?

Face & Body PaintingBalloon sculptingBalloon decorationsEverything else

Parents often ask me, “Which do you recommend? Face painting or Balloon Sculpting?”
And my answer? “BOTH!”

What’s a birthday party without candid photos with your family and friends? Funny moments are pretty much synonymous to face painting. How often do your littlies have the chance to be their favourite animal or cartoon character? It’s seriously hilarious when you see a shy little boy suddenly give you a brave tiger ROAR or a little girl striking a Spidey pose. 🙂
So get your cameras ready, Mamas & Papas!

And what’s a kids party without souvenirs to bring home? I love Balloon Sculpting too because you get two in one! Balloon sculpting doubles up as entertainment plus a mighty cute gift for everyone to bring home! And yes, we do twist character balloon sculptures as well. Character balloons do take longer to make, so you’d get a friendly advice from our Kids Party Planner to prebook your extensions for the best party experience!

I’m not trying to make it hard for you to choose but that’s really what I truly feel!

Now, let’s play a Fact or Fiction game on face painting and balloon sculpting! I’ve got 4 questions for you. You ready?

Question 1
Face painting is for kids.

Frozen elsa face painting happier singapore Rainbow pony face painting happier singapore

Fiction!
I like to think of face paint as makeup made for creativity! The last time you came across a face painter, it was probably at a kids birthday party and you can’t imagine getting that cutesy design on yourself, right? But if you pick the right artist, I’m pretty sure you’d want a face or body painting as well! I do 90% of the face and body art jobs for adults personally, if they are on weekdays, and maybe if you book me early for Halloween weekend. The team does themed D&D Makeup, pre-dinner entertainment, night events, production/fashion shoots and more recently, belly painting for maternity photo shoots as well. It was a great honor for us to paint for our Deputy Prime Minister Mr Teo Chee Hean at last year’s NDP celebrations. Looking forward to spread our joy to more Singaporeans this SG50! 🙂

Question 2
Face paints are water colors.

Fact!
OK before you decide on a DIY party and run off to Popular book store to grab those water colors, I need to qualify this first. Face paints are water soluble paints, so if you wanna call them water colors, you’re right! But our water soluble face paints are hypoallergenic, non-toxic and safely formulated for your delicate facial skin. Please DO NOT attempt to apply other form of water colors (even if they are non-toxic) that you may find at local stores. You would be doing so at your own risk. The face paints we use are imported and are not sold in Singapore. You’ll only know you’re in safe hands when you hire a professional face painter. 🙂

Question 3
Balloon sculpting is done by the Kids Magician.

Magician Kids Magic Show Uncle Jimbo Happier Singapore

Fiction!
At Happier Singapore, we ensure the Balloon Sculpting is done by a professional balloon sculptor or rather, balloon artist, some might say. If you do buy a 30 min magic show with 30 min of balloon sculpting, this means the kids magician is put through a mad rush to make a balloon sculpture for every single child after the show. What you may end up with are simple swords, guns, flowers, hearts, 1-balloon dogs and other “abstract” designs. Magicians are paid almost 4 to 5 times for their magic shows compared to balloon sculpting, so it doesn’t quite make sense for them to “invest” their time into balloons anyway. On the other hand, when you hire Happier Singapore for balloon sculpting, it is done by one of our artists who eats and breathes balloons. A balloon artist to chooses to invest his or her time into making beautiful yet fast balloon sculptures specially for you. ❤

Question 4
Balloon sculpting is only for giveaways.

Fiction!
I really only fell in love with balloon sculpting after I saw what other amazingly talented people in Singapore and around the world were actually capable of making! And boy! Are their balloon sculptures NOT just for giveaways! Combining the inspiration from our local and overseas talents, with creative inputs from supportive clients like you, we have came up with so many types of balloon sculptures for decorative purposes just over the past year. From decorative balloon arches, columns, photo frames, backdrops, even a vintage volkswagen kmbi! Everything you can think of, we will help you make it out of balloons. Trust us and we won’t disappoint you. And believe it or not, nearly all the balloon decorations we have made are our first times!

I hope you guys enjoy reading my blog so far! I don’t usually have the opportunity to strike a deeper conversation with you while I’m planning your party, or even painting and twisting for your kids. So this is a little way for us to connect. I love getting to know my clients personally, so please join me on Instagram or Facebook by clicking on my doodles below. 🙂

For all other party enquiries, chat us up at sales@happier.sg or +65 9271 7106!
I’m at events more often than not, so if you can’t talk to me, whatsapp or email me please!

P.S. If you absolutely need me to be the one painting or twisting personally at your child’s birthday party, you can lock me in for your party as a mascot face painter or mascot balloon artist. My long black hair can magically turn pale gold, brown with a white streak, red or even into a bob! I can grow muscles too. See?
