Some of our past clients include:


“Lori at A Touch of Magic was easy to communicate with and quickly responded to questions. The balloon artist that came to our event was prompt, pleasant, and engaged well with our attendees. I would not hesitate to use A Touch of Magic again.

– Thrivent Financial 



“I have booked A Touch of Magic for their face painting, balloon artist, and magician skills for a large community event multiple years in a row. They provide excellent customer service when it comes to booking, following up, and the talent day of event is unbeatable. I would highly recommend A Touch of Magic for both large and small events. You will not be disappointed.”

– Gina Robinette, City of Savage 



“We had a great event with A Touch of Magic at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital. A Touch of Magic was prompt, willing to go the extra mile and great with the kids. They really provided a wonderful element to make our party more festive. Touch of Magic is easy to work with and good at what they do. I highly recommend them for any event!
– Josh Fisher, Communications Director at HyVee


“We used A Touch of Magic for our Fall Festival last year. We used a face painter and balloon artist and they were the biggest attraction that we had. Even bigger than the bounce houses and free stuff. Both the face painter and balloon artist had a solid line of 20-30 kids the entire day! I would highly recommend them if you need a face painter, balloon artist, magician, clowns, jugglers, etc.

– Steve McElroy, General Manager at Lunds Bloomington



“Both of your artists were very professional and worked efficiently. The airbrush artist even arrived early to set up and be ready by 3:30. Thank you again. We were very happy with the services.”

– S. Anwar, Mounds Park Academy




“I have worked with this company for several years in a row for our high school’s All Night Party and they have never let us down. Their attention to detail and providing top notch artists keep us coming back year after year. They provide proactive communication and a worry free experience. Someone is always available during the event in case there is an issue, which we have never had. The artists are professional and work so well with the students. We book early to ensure they can fit us into their schedule as they are well worth it. Thanks for all the fun they have provided the students and parents over the years, can’t wait until next year’s party!!”

– Simley High School (Satisfied Customer since 2004)





Thank you for helping make our event a great success!  Right from the beginning, your guidance in helping to pick entertainers and artists who were just right for the ages of the children was so very valuable.  My co-workers have been reporting back to me about how thrilled the kids were with their tattoos.  We will definitely be calling A Touch of Magic to help with our next big event!
– Mary V, GovDocs, Inc.




“He was adorable, funny and everyone loved him! It was very fun…Thank You!!”
– Tami O, Holiday Retirement (White Bear Lake Senior Living)




“It was great to see Mark…honestly, does he ever age? The kids loved, loved, loved him. Me, too.”
– Carol Southward, Wentworth Library “Satisfied repeat customer since 1993”





“We absolutely loved having A Touch of Magic at our event! I think it was the best part of the night! It was a great experience for everyone there and I don’t think anyone left without face paint or henna on them. We would definitely recommend to others. Your staff is so great. Thanks so much for all your work!”
-Jessica Lindsay, Angel Foundation





“We’ve called on a Touch of Magic for 5-6 in-hospital events each year since 2010. Whether utilizing services for magicians, caricature artists, or face-painters, we’ve always been pleased! Patients would line up out the door if we’d let them,  but since this isn’t the case the talent from A Touch of Magic makes it their mission to stay until every child has been seen. Even more than that, Lori Hurley purchased equipment that allows her to visit patients in their room if they are unable to join in the festivities in the hospital lobby. Hospital staff, patients, and families rave about A Touch of Magic, and everyone begins counting down the days as soon as they hear that they’ll be back for the next event. We’re so thankful for the relationship that we’ve been able to build with the company as it brings the most important healing tool available to our kids: smiles. Thank you, A Touch of Magic!”
-Brittni Brown, Event Operations Coordinator at University of Minnesota Foundation





“All of the entertainers arrived early (in other words, in ample time to get ready), all did a great job. They provided some fresh fun without dominating the scene, and you could hear sparkles of laughter as the clown (day 1) and the juggler/magician (day 2) worked the room, and steady line for caricaturing. I think we had a good variety for the conference participants.


I found Don (the juggler) to be exceptional – you could really tell that he totally loved what he was doing more than whether or not it was a job. He was very flexible, even drawing the crowd’s participation back to the stage with an on-stage trick, so that we could start the afternoon session. He just exuded enthusiasm the entire time he was there, very catching.


Our caricaturist was superb. It turned out to be the right number of hours for the people who wanted a caricature. He was quick, he was lovely, he did great art. I think he enjoyed the setting and the type of people at our conference very much.


If a future opportunity arises, I will certainly be very emphatic about how great you all were, and how people must get it all sorted out with you.”

-S. Johnston, Moodle





“The balloon artists and face painter were the best addition to our Annual Company Picnic. It was fun to listen to the people raving about the both the face painter and balloon art that was created. They were quick and entertaining and captivating to see them interact with their audience. We would not think twice about having the staff back every year at this annual event. A Touch of Magic is the best in the business for this type of entertainment. They took very good care of us and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for your event!”

– Amy, Wilson Tool





“I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank Lori again for the great job she did at entertaining the children and some adults with her balloon art!!  It turned out to be a rainy day for our event and having Lori there totally saved the day!!  Both adults and children loved watching her and were especially amazed at her interactions with the children.  Thanks again and hopefully we will be able to use your services again in the future!!”

– B. Danielson, Seneca Foods Corporation





“…It was nice to know that I could hire a hypnotist, tattoo artists, caricature artists, and fortune tellers/palm readers with one phone call. By telling the office my headcount, they were immediately able to tell me what would work best for the type of entertainment I wanted. They are very professional and know their business. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with them.”

– C. Swanson, North High School

– V. Stoffel, The Toro Company





“…The adults as well as the children were thrilled with the strolling magic and the balloon animals and hats. I would highly recommend them.”

– P. Brandt, 3M





“Over 600 people watched your show…Judging by the laughter, it was obvious that you really know how to engage a crowd and keep their attention!”

– D. Beitel, Chanhassen Parks & Recreation




Last night Sara came to our community event and, let me tell you, she was AMAZING! We all enjoyed her creative & artistic abilities, as well as her joyful personality. The kids all loved their designs and also the one on one attention they received from her. She made sure that each individual child got exactly what he/she wanted. She even stayed 10 minutes late to squeeze a few more in. I will definitely keep you in mind for our future events and I have even started referring your company to others. Thank you so much for your efforts in making our 1st annual Night to Unite event a HUGE success!”
