Halloween Party

 Top 5 Ideas for Having a Grrrrreat Halloween Party

1.  We all know that there will be plenty of sugar consumed over the next few weeks, so how do we get kids to eat healthy?  One way that I have found is to make the food look spooky and fun.  This Family Fun website has ideas and pictures of 15 Hauntingly Healthy Halloween Snacks which will add a bit of flair as well as get you plenty of compliments at your party.

2.  Carving pumpkins has become more than just a spooky face. Now people are carving scary cats, skulls, ghosts, bats and more.  A few years ago I discovered that there are plenty of websites with free printable templates that you can use to cut that special design into your favorite pumpkin.

3.  How can you spook up your home on a budget? Simply making the decorations yourself is not only a great way to save money but also a lot of fun.  When the scissors and glue come out of the craft box, all the kids in our family like to get involved.  Here are 34 ideas of Halloween crafts you can make with your little demons when stuck in the house this fall.

4.  Games can be a lot of fun, but what kind of games are good for Halloween?  I haven’t seen anyone bobbing for apples in decades!  In fact, after you put all that make up on or spend time getting that special outfit on, sometimes you wouldn’t even be able to bob!  Well, you don’t have to play them all, but check out these 15 Fun Games.

5.  Make your holiday party stand out this year by having a Professional Magical Entertainer spice it up! This year’s party will be memorable for many years to come with the addition of a Holiday Magic Show.  Book soon before all the available times have been Spooked away!

Hobe Sound Golf Course – Celebrities Fore Kids

Magic at the Hobe Sound Golf Club

It was a beautiful day to be out on the links, but we were having a blast in the club house.  Celebrities Fore Kids is a great organization that I have had the privilege of meeting today.  The purpose of Celebrities Fore Kids, Inc. is to improve the quality of life for children with cancer, and their families, who live on the Treasure Coast of Florida. Presently pediatric oncology services are not available in the Treasure Coast. To further this purpose, the organization works closely with agencies, physicians, schools, hospitals and pediatric care centers.  Their goal is to offer financial, emotional, and social support to these children and their families.

I got to meet some great families today and would like to think that I had a part in the big smiles that I saw on all their faces.  Lots of audience participation was on the venue today and I think it we can say that everyone had a chance to participate in one way or another.   I had so much fun as a Family Magician today and look forward to more of these opportunities.

Now begins the prepartion for next years event, since I have already been told to set the date.  Stu has even started to get prepare by pretending to be a very still rabbit. He really impresses me that when it is showtime he behaves so well.  Here at the house, I am constantly having to tell him to get out of the dog’s food dish.  My dog eats cheeseburger flavored dog food. Maybe Stu is trying to tell me he wants to go out to McDonalds!  Either way, he is one crazy rabbit here at home.

Listen to what someone had to say after the show!

Corporate Holiday Entertainment

Pick a Winner!!

The holiday season is quickly approaching and event planners are stuck with the task of deciding what to do to entertain hundreds of employees.  The only problem is that, although holiday raffles or give aways are filled with excitement, when it comes to the end of the evening only a handful of people walk away happy with their door prizes.  Hiring a great Magical Entertainer may be the solution to your holiday blues.  Everyone gets to take away the memory of a fun filled show and many others get to take home the story of the time they got picked from the audience to participate.  The office will be swarming with anticipation for next years party long before the season is upon you.

The picture to the left was a holiday party I did earlier this year for United Space Alliance in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Like most corporate affairs the evening started off with a cocktail hour that morphed into a dinner.  While guests mingled and had a few drinks, I entertained them with some close up magic.  This is a lot of fun because it is magic that happens right in front of them or in their own hands.  What a great prelude to a magical stage show, because now they have an idea of my personality, skill and ability to entertain!  This really sets the stage for what is to come.

The next part of the corporate show is a cleverly crafted mix of comedy and magic that keeps each guest wondering what they just saw, while they laugh the night away.  This is the part that I really love because it gives me a chance to interact with someone on a large scale.  Chances are that they have never been on stage before or at least not as often as me.  Not to worry because they will still be the star and their 15 minutes of fame is about to begin.

As you can see my willing assistant has the biggest smile and is really enjoying the moment.  I can’t wait for next years event with this group.  We all had so much fun!

In closing, take the weight off your shoulders of completing this difficult task of trying to make so many people happy and let it up to a Pro.  A great suggestion is Vynn Credible for your corporate event because I will make your event worth remembering!
