We love what we do, and it shows in every one of our performances!

“You made my son’s 5th birthday party a success. My son said it was his best birthday party ever! You even got little Amy to like clowns. That is amazing. I will definitely call you next year for Brian’s 6th Birthday. Thank you Sweet Petunia.”


“Sweet Petunia,
Wow! What a party! My daughter and her friends had so much fun. We loved the face paintings. You are a true artist.”


“Treasure the Clown,
 Wow! You were awesome! My daughter, Aaliyah and her friends enjoyed you being there. You were the center attraction. We can’t wait to have you again next year. Thank you!”


“Sweet Petunia and Treasure were absolutely wonderful to work with. From the original booking to the actual event, they made everything happen so seamlessly. The face painting they do is amazing, we had so many people say it was the best they had ever seen. And the balloon animals they constructed were so different and each one was custom for each child! They were an absolute pleasure to work with and I would love to have them at another party! Without them, our Grand Opening would not have been the same!”


“I’ve been meaning to write you since the party, but have been preoccupied with my son who has a broken leg. That explains why he wasn’t very festive on the day of the party. (He is healing well now and both kids still talk about your performance — especially the chicken dance. When you came through the door, it was instant fun!!  Thank you so much for making it a memorable birthday. I’ve attached some fun photos for you as well.”


“We have had Kathy aka “Sweet Petunia” the clown at numerous company functions for Contracted Driver Services, as she has brought smiles to our employees and their families. No matter if you are 5 or 50 years old, she is a delightful person and a true clown at heart!”


“HI! Thanks again for coming to Zoe’s birthday party! Thank you, Sweet Petunia and Treasure for making Zoe’s first birthday so fun! You captured the kid’s attention and they had a blast! Everyone got a balloon and a face or arm painting and I know they will always remember it! You were able to make Zoe a part of the show and even though she is only a year old she was having fun as well, dancing and clapping! Thanks Again.”


“Kathy (Sweet Petunia) and Tara (Treasure), we so enjoyed your presence at Asher’s birthday party… loved the bright colors and beautiful faces you created on people, as well as the too-cute animal balloons! Would highly recommend you! This was my first really large party… and I was so happy to see the children “line up” for both of you!! They truly enjoyed it all!”

“We used Sweet Petunia and Treasure the Clown this year for our annual statewide chess tournament in Peoria. Providing entertainment for over 350 children and their parents is always a challenge. Sweet Petunia’s balloon and Treasure’s face painting activities were perfect for the occasion. We highly recommend them.”


“Sweet Petunia is our clown/face painter of choice here at A Better Alternative Bouncy Things. She has a special enthusiasm and excitement for her job that just shines through. Children absolutely love her! This combined with complete dependability for on time arrival to our events and total customer satisfaction makes her #1 in our book. I would highly recommend her to anyone.”


“Sweet Petunia, you have been entertaining my family with “Magic” for the last ten years. You have helped us celebrate special days such as family reunions and birthdays. These are memories that are unforgotten and held close to my heart. Thank you for your flexibility and reliability.”

“Sweet Petunia performed at my granddaughter’s first birthday party. She was very entertaining, even making the adults laugh. Her magic was impressive as was her balloon making. Maybe the most impressive thing about her performance was the way she kept the children, ranging in age from 1 to 12, all captivated and paying attention to her. I would highly recommend her for any occasion.”
