Could this pARTy have been any easier? All I did was call up The Paintbrush to book my son’s pARTy, send out the great invitations they provided, and show up on the day of with my birthday boy, my camera, cake and candles! I’m a busy mom so I had The Paintbrush do everything else. What an easy day it was for me and what fun my kids and their friends had!” –– Julia, Mom of Breck, 6 and Ethan, 4

“We were all very happy with the pARTy. Sophie enjoyed bringing her own painting home! What you do is the best I’ve seen so far in Chicago (the children learn, create, have fun, and don’t get hysterically excited!). You definitely met our standards. I would highly recommend The Paintbrush to anyone.” – Rachel, Mom of Sophie, 4 and Elias, 5

“My daughters’ birthday pARTies at The Paintbrush were the least stressful pARTies I have ever had! I would definitely recommend The Paintbrush birthday pARTARTies for any busy mom!”

“Just wanted to drop a quick note saying the party went really well!  Thanks for having the process down and being so very professional with everything. You have no idea how many times I’ve been to a party that seems thrown together or without any flow or direction. This is clearly a well thought-out plan that’s been executed several times before.” — Jon, dad of Eleanor, 4

“Juliet’s pARTy was so much fun! It was so well organized and the teachers were great! Juliet and her friends had a blast.” — Emily, mom of Juliet, 8

Chloe’s birthday pARTy was a total success – she and her friends had such a blast, and Miss Alex was such a great leader – it was the smoothest 3-year-old pARTy I have ever been to (and we’ve been to a lot)! Everyone was raving about how great the project was, and how well the party was run. Hopefully you’ve got some new customers coming your way…” —Sally, mom of Chloe, 3

“We would like to plan a birthday pARTy for our little girl who is turning 5 this June.  Our son attended a pARTy there for a friend one time and said it was great! ” — Corinne, mom of two

“I wanted to let you know what a wonderful time Belle had at her 5th birthday pARTy. Her commemorative art piece is hanging in her bedroom and she talks about it on a nightly basis! Again, many thanks for a great event.” — Lauren, mom of Belle, 5

“Sam’s party was the most fun and best organized pARTy we have had. Thank you for everything you did to put it together for us. The tattoo station was a huge hit. And Sam is looking forward to picking up his Collaborative Keepsake Canvas when it dries. Having all his friends paint it with him was a terrific idea. What a creative party!”      — Johnny, dad of Sam, 7
