At almost every birthday party, everyone showers the birthday child with love and affection. But hey! Look who went through all that 9 months of backaches and then many more sleepless nights spent nursing a hungry baby? Good Ole Mummy!
So, as we turn 3, we celebrate motherhood!
Just give ourselves 5 mins to be thankful to our moms. Thank her for her awesome cooking, thank her for returning our childhood tantrums with patience, thank her for unlocking the door for us when we came home at unearthly hours of the night. Too many things she did for us that we didn’t say much about because we thought she’d know.
You’ll survive your less-than-perfect week with a smile on your face and a heart of patient grace because that special someone will always be loving you no matter what. And now it’s your turn to be that special someone for your own little one.
Here’s some good news for you if you happen to be planning your kids birthday party amidst your busy schedule! Teleport straight to talking with our kids party planners here!
See how our little one has grown over the past few years. Growing through each milestone with the support from the many mummies (and a handful of daddies – the rarity of sorts who do the party planning).
Alicia found her passion for face painting after she became an accidental face painter at a kids party.
Happier Singapore was born! Alicia quit her job at a VC firm, and threw away 4 years of slogging for Dean’s list in NUS Psychology. Crazy? Psycho, more like it. But making Singapore a happier place for families is her calling. Happier.SG grew by opportunity. Whatever you asked for, we tried to make it happen! Balloon sculpting, Balloon Decoration, Kids Magic Show, Mascots & Costumed Characters, Kids Party Photo Booth, even coming up with our personalized service, Name Art Calligraphy of popular cartoon characters, whatever it took to make your kids birthday a happier one! We were also recognised as Top Face Painting Company in Singapore 6 months into our launch.
The Happier team put up their first wedding party for Mr & Mrs Happier! Read about our Kids Party Themed Military Wedding.
More people are believing in our mission to make Singapore a happier place for families. Happier.SG is growing its dedicated team of artists from all walks of life. Mother and Baby magazine tells our story beautifully here.
Still yet to unfold, our heart tells us we would love to do more for couples. Newly wed or wed for the longest time ever. Parent or yet-to-be. Two people who share a special union of a selfless decision to think as “we” and are committed to helping each other grow for the better. That’s something worth celebrating isn’t it? Happier families start with happier couples.
Thank you to every single one of YOU! Our dearest friends, partners and customers who have made 2014 such an amazing journey for us!
May you and your families be well and happy this holiday season! See you in 2015, Year of the Goat!
Hallo everyone! It’s almost that time of the year again. Halloween! You bet this surely is the most exciting time of the year for face painters across the world, even here in tiny red dot Singapore. Here’s a hair raising post from my halloween throwback to get you inspired for your upcoming ghoulish parties.
To all the lovely mommies and daddies planning kids parties, rest assured life goes on as usual before 10pm every day. Our kids party entertainers are still happy to be of service at your birthday and family events.
For enquiries, please drop us a note at email@example.com and use the hotline only in extreme party emergencies, +6592717106. Usually for such emergencies, our customers go, “Help! My party is this Saturday, I NEED a face painter, balloon sculptor, magician, candyfloss, Queen Elsa….” Ok you get the gist.
My friendly RM usually makes sure you get a response to your email within the same working day. Else I may jump in to respond to emails at unearthly hours after I’m done with planning for my wedding, launch of my next company, doing my best to serve returning customers and attempting to make time for my own family.
Finally! Here’s what you’ve all been scrolling down for. I would advise you to brace yourselves, the face paintings coming up next are not for the faint hearted!
And here is Whitney and her team’s winning Alice in Wonderland entourage, featuring Mad Hatter, The Queen of Hearts, Alice & Royal Cards.
Well that wasn’t too bad was it? Was Halloween getting too cute for you? Let’s amp up the scare factor!
Hand signs are definitely the IN-thing amongst the cold-blooded.
You never knew the man behind the iron mask is best friends with Frankenstein, did you?
V for Vendetta is back in Singapore!
Get ‘em drama mamas! Enacting the killer kiss is seriously no joke.
I would love to paint someone into a full body skeleton one day! Morbid huh? Anyone care for an anatomic session?
I moustache you a question. What do you think of guys rocking a sugarskull face painting?
At this point, you are thinking we couldn’t get any more effeminate than an Ursula face painting on a boy. Halloween IS the perfect excuse to go crazy and laugh your heads off at each other. So ladies, are you ready for makeup beyond your wildest imagination?
There’s so much you can do with these pretty Sugarskull face paintings! We absolutely adore the way you can customize the design with accents like florals, whimsical swirls, crosses, glitter, spiderwebs etc.
How about a cracked half face skeleton of a century old Geisha?
There’s Cheryl Miles from HOT 91.3FM Radio Station with her Spider Queen halloween face and body painting.
What have you been missing out on, Peter Parker? With Spiderwoman around, Mary Jane can go fly kite.
And here’s Charmaine Yee and her jungle buddies from the HOTTEST Radio station in Singapore.
We bumped into Audrey Lim at the Starhub ZooMoo production launch! Another amazing voice-morpher who is the voice actress behind the character, Emiko.
The Happier team is definitely gonna be saving a couple of nights attending halloween parties ourselves, so remember to book us early if you wanna be transformed by our halloween face and body painters!
And only during halloween, will you see us glow in the dark.
P.S. We didn’t post the ultra gore and bloody stuff cuz it’s simply too morbid for this happy blog. If you’d like some of these special FX artistry on your next session, please make a special request on your enquiry.

I was super excited when Mommy Sheree invited Happier Singapore back to face paint at her party again in February. Firstly, I must say a big thank you to Sheree for letting me blog about Declan’s 4th Madagascar Carnival theme party! I am continually amazed by the parents who hire me as their face painter and balloon twister for their kids parties.
Sheree is one of the many mommies and daddies who put their kids first despite having a busy career. You will see all the effort and creative juices plowed into this birthday party. This is the very essence that we want to celebrate with you, here at Happier Singapore. When I started the company last April, it was with the vision of celebrating the family through art and creativity.
Yes and that’s Sheree and her lovely family!
Declan the birthday Tiger having a romantic train ride with his pretty Bunny girl friend. You can tell they are getting slightly impatient while waiting for the train to get moving.
Alright! Here we go! Choo Choooooooo! You can see the kids beaming with joy (and the cool train dude as well).
Our pretty bunny, Olive, taking her lucky shot at the carnival game stalls. We are gonna be looking forward to doing more fluffy bunny face paintings for the Easter garden parties in April!
I love this photo! Jack never fails to amaze me how he can capture the many fleeting expressions of the kids with his trusty lens. He is really a true artist don’t you think? If I was a parent, I would really see a good photographer as an investment. Imagine how precious all these memories will be when you look back years later. I still have my toddler birthday party pics btw! Thanks to my own mom who lovingly kept all these memories for me since 20 over years ago.
Jack’s photography services are available for hire with your birthday party package from Happier Singapore.
The highlight of the party. Piñata time!!! Who doesn’t love candy? Here are some tips to consider if you are planning to get a piñata for your child:
1) Age of the children
Generally for ages 4 and below, or if there are space constraints, it would be better to get a pull string piñata. No whacking or violence until the children are old enough to understand and listen to instructions.
For 5 and up, the kids really do get very thrilled anticipating when the piñata is going to burst open with sweet treats. Everyone cannot wait to get a go with the stick. But always safety first! You might like to segment your party area by drawing an imaginary magic line and getting another parent to play as crocodile. Anyone who crosses the line when it is not their turn gets eaten up and goes behind the queue.
If you need professional help with party games, we can organize them for you. No logistical headaches and we will save you from the insanity
Fondant cakes are all the rage for birthday parties nowadays. I’d like to call them edible art. While such cakes can run up to the hundreds depending on complexity of your designs, they do add a lot of color and hype to your party. If you are looking for cute custom character fondant birthday cakes or cupcakes, just let us know.
Happy 4th Birthday Declan!! <3
After the cake cutting, everyone wanted a piece of Alex the Lion! So we did a cartoony lion face painting for this cute little boy. I must admit it is a challenge to get our face painting artwork turn out well on the younger tots. They like move a lot. But well, we have our ways to get the job done. That’s when maybe some background in psychology helps? Hahaha!
Or you could get your lion face painting done on your child’s arm instead. We do make it a point to develop feminine and masculine variations of our designs so no gender bias. We do aim to paint and twist anything your child asks for (within reasonable limits due to time constraint). Girls can be dragons or Spiderman if they want to and boys can be butterflies or Hello Kitty if they want to as well!
Our glitter Hello Kitty Inspired face painting is a pretty popular design among the girls. You can find our arm painting variants as well here.
Sometimes simple is elegance. Everyone wants to be Snow Queen ever since Christmas last year. I want be Snow Queen too. You can find the looks I sometimes paint on myself here.
Spidey wins the most popular Superhero face painting design award!
This is my favorite family photo from the party. You can really tell the difference between professional photography versus my own smartphone photography from some previous posts. I really enjoy admiring the artwork from the photographers we work with.
It’s sundown and that concludes Declan’s amazing birthday party.
It’s New Year’s Eve and we are taking the time to count our blessings for the year of 2013. A big thank you to all our customers, partners and suppliers for supporting us since we started up in April. Special thanks to all the mummies and daddies who have invited our face painters, balloon sculptors & decorators, caricaturists, calligraphers, magicians, photographers, craft & game hosts, popcorn & candy floss chefs to your child’s parties and family events! Without you, our artists would not have the opportunity to spread our joy and love for children and art!
It’s really great to know that our hard work and passion has not gone unrecognized. Just 6 months into our launch, Happier Singapore has been recognized by The Asian Parent as first on the list of Top 5 Face Painters in Singapore! We will continue to strive to improve as artists and entertainers, bringing you creative designs beyond your wildest imagination!
Our most popular girl face painting designs, needless to say, are our rainbow butterflies! Even within this small category of designs, our face painters like to paint each butterfly to bring our the personality of our little customers. From the moment she sits down in our chair, we can tell if Little Miss Sunshine, Little Miss Shy, Little Miss Thoughtful etc. That’s part of our enjoyment too as face painters I guess.
My personal favorite is the Frozen Fairy Princess mask. This minimalist face painting design is inspired by the BEST Disney movie of the year, Frozen. It is one of those Disney animation movies you definitely must watch! It made me cry so much but I still left the theatre with a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart. Really love the emotions that came through the voices and storyline. Sure, you have heard about true love in other fairy tales, but Frozen really gives a new dimension to what true love is. This Frozen Fairy Princess mask, I dedicate to my darling younger sister, Amanda. May we continue face painting together happily ever after and do you wanna build a snowman?
Isn’t it every boy’s dream to save the world and defend their fairies and princesses? Our face painters will bestow superpowers upon your sons and let them experience being a superhero (until their next bath). Of course, with great power comes great responsibility. Not only for Spiderman; that’s what we tell our happier Captain America, Batman, Ironman, Green Lantern, Wolverine & Superman as well.
Only recently did I discover the difference between a Unicorn, Pegasus, Alicorn and your regular earth Pony and Horse. If you are above the age of 12, chances are you’d need to learn this from someone younger than you. Well, at least I did. You might be surprised how much attention to detail your child is capable of when you sprinkle some imagination, colors and magic into your teaching. Maybe I’ll blog about teachable moments from the psychologist – face painter perspective next time!
Face painting is no child’s play. While we aim for speed at events and parties, you can also book a private session to get a high definition face painting makeover for your fancy dress functions. You can get the same cinematic quality makeup done in the comfort of your home or office with family, friends and colleagues. We’re always looking forward to get creative for your next Masquerade ball, Halloween party and more!
Are you looking for innovative marketing tools? Leverage this a unique marketing opportunity with our face and body art, where your guests become walking and smiling ambassadors of your brand. You can count on our face and body painters to make your event moments Instagram and Facebook worthy. Because our face and body painters can paint free hand, the possibilities are virtually limitless!
Apart from entertaining the kids, we certainly love dressing up your party venues too! We turned a living room into an Igloo by building a mini arch in the doorway this Christmas. Or you can share with us other whacky theme ideas and we’ll build you a giant arch for your stage or grand entrance.
Can you spot the toddler in the photo above?
We came up with some colorful balloon column decorations to match our clients’ themed entertainment too!
Our balloon sculptors are almost like your modern day fairy godmothers and fairy godfathers. Whatever the birthday boy or girl wishes for, we can twist it out of balloons. No party is complete without each child going home with a cute balloon sculpture toy!
If you are a brand manager, we can come up with a creative balloon marketing plan to boost the ROI on your roadshow promotional efforts too!
Caricature is a must-have for adult parties I would say – it doubles up as entertainment and a personalized door gift for your guests! Our caricaturists are highly sought after for weddings, cocktail receptions and roadshows. A happier caricaturist will lighten up your parties as they entertain you live with a cartoon caricature of yourself drawn on the spot.
If you love our face painting designs and you want the 2-in-1 entertainment and door gift concept, name art calligraphy is the perfect option for you! We are proud to say that Happier Singapore is the first in Singapore to offer this unique service.
It is so true when they say art is influenced by culture. I am getting a feel like I am the last few young Singaporeans who love their country and their own culture. I was inspired by the traditional Chinese calligraphers at our local Chinatown. Our happier artists put own our spin on the traditional calligraphy art with vibrant colors and trendy designs that appeal to all ages. If you are planning for a cultural or community event, our name art calligraphers will be most happy to weave in a cultural element for you too!
Here’s wishing you a happier new year with family and friends!
We look forward to bringing you more happiness and creative party art in year 2014!
