Talk to your family, friends and coworkers about whether they have ever hired a balloon twister for any kind of event. If they haven't, maybe they have been to a birthday party where they saw what a balloon twister was capable of. Also, don't forget to ask other parents and visit parenting sites that might have a review area for vendors such as this.

Start each interview by asking how much the artist charges for their services. To give you some idea, balloon twisters generally charge anywhere from $75 to $150 per hour. You will need to discuss what exactly is included. Keep in mind that the more complicated the design that they have to create makes a huge difference in terms of how many sculptures they will be able to create. If you want everyone at the party to have something to take home, you need to talk about what shapes you are satisfied with. For instance, you could have the guest of honor receive the most complicated design and have the rest of the kids receive a sword which can be created in a much quicker amount of time. Ask them if they offer any package rates. Find out what the balloon twister will need from you. For instance, will they provide the balloons? There are special quality balloons that a twister usually uses and they normally take care of this but it doesn't hurt to make sure. How personable is the candidate? Do you actually like them? This might make a difference because they will be interacting with all of the kids and they need to know how to keep everyone smiling even when they are not working on their sculpture. Do they have a limit to the number of children they will work with. Are they available for more then an hour if needed? How is overtime charged? References are very important. Talk to past clients and find out how everything went with each candidate. Have them show you which candidates they are capable of making. Finally, never neglect to run a background check on anyone you are thinking of hiring. When one of your candidate emerges as the best of the best, it will be time to make your hire.
