Just a note to those who got GROOVE PAINT for their face painting & balloons...
Our party was last Saturday, Sep1 ang the party starts at 11AM. Our call time (based on email exchanges and the paper their crew had) was 10AM. This time did not come from me, I suggested 10:30AM but they (Kath/Prince) noted that 10AM was more appropriate.
Come party time:
10AM - no Groove Paint
11AM - no Groove Paint
12NN - still no Groove Paint
They arrived at 12:43PM when Symond was about to start his second part of the show... Honestly, I was so busy assisting the guests and the food so I had no time to get infuriated with their tardiness. Worst, I texted their proprietors around 11:28AM to ask where they were, the only reply was (verbatim): "Kanina pa po sila nakaalis Ma'am"
THAT'S IT, that is all you have to say???
Also, the package (P4,000) included face painting (by two artists) w/ glitter art and sequins for 2hours (extension of an hour is additional P1,000) and 100pcs balloons to be conducted by a balloonist. In the email, I asked how many crew will be there so I can provide crew meals, she (Kath) said 3. Lo and behold on the day, there were only 2. Yung isang artist, siya na din daw sa balloons. So my thinking is, how will you be able to paint and do balloons at the same time - technically, only 1 was painting!!! And I noticed that there were no sequins!
I AM REALLY DISAPPOINTED with GROOVE PAINT. Please mommies, if you got them, make sure (as in kulitin niyo sila) about the call time, all the details in your contract and email exchanges...
My point is, the face painting and balloonist should be early because this is the activity during the waiting time (period) when the host is still waiting for the guests before starting the program. Sayang... sayang talaga...
Yes, their works were nice, madami din naman ang nakapagpa-paint. As for the balloons, hindi ko alam kung ilan ang naggawa. But that is beside the point. THEY WERE VERY LATE. Hindi na nila ako siningil ng extension since they were late. I was still courteous to them on the day. And they were very apologetic. But I will NEVER get their services again and I will NEVER RECOMMEND them to my family and friends.
