“I wish that Wonder Woman came to my Birthday.”

– Nikki, Age 4

Every birthday is very special as we celebrate another year of life especially the life that we are solely responsible for – our child. Every year we are grateful as our daughter turns another year older and she continues to blossom into an amazing person. What more can we expect from our Superhero but the continuation of her awesomeness for another year.

We have been teaching Nikki to be kind, strong and loving which she has been grasping as she develops. Nikki is surrounded by strong women figures in her life so it is no surprise that she has been all about Wonder Woman. She loves Wonder Woman so much that often I hear her play pretend as she saves the world from yet another villain. It truly is an adorable play conversation that I love hearing and shows me that she is empowered to truly make a difference in the world…one day!

As we were preparing for our family birthday celebration, Nikki turned to me and said, “Momma, when everyone sings Happy Birthday to me. Can they say Happy Birthday Nikki Wonder Woman?” I of course said that this would not be a problem. Then Nikki closes her eyes and says, “I wish that Wonder Woman came to my Birthday.” I of course had to tell Nikki that she shouldn’t say her wish out loud and the reply back was “If I don’t say my wish out loud, how is it suppose to come true?!” Well played Nikki!

At that moment I realized that I needed to find a way to make that wish come true and with the help of Ever After Entertainment, we delivered!

On August 1st, Nikki’s 4th birthday had finally arrived and boy was she excited! I took the day off of work to spend the day with her which she loved since she was feeling under the weather and we just got our home ready for our immediate family who was coming over for dinner and cake of course!

At 7:30 PM, our doorbell rang and I told Nikki to see who it was. As soon as she saw Wonder Woman she was beyond excited and greeted her with a big hug. Wonder Woman noticed that Nikki was wearing a matching outfit to her. That made Nikki’s day as she was so proud to be wearing the Wonder Woman costume from Petit Tutu Boutique.

Wonder Woman gracefully entered our home and started the hero training. We were very excited as we have never been to a Wonder Woman Parody Party before and we didn’t know what to expect especially with only one child at the party (this year we kept it small).  But this was by Ever After Entertainment so it was going to be magical and epic.

Wonder Woman started off by greeting everyone and then she spent some time getting to know Nikki a little better. Of course this is the time that Nikki had to show her shield to Wonder Woman herself. Once Nikki got settled with the fact that Wonder Woman had actually arrived at her home, it was storytime. Wonder Woman shared the story of how she became a real life Super Hero and Nikki loved every minute of it.

Next activity was the superhero training which was very entertaining for Nikki. It really got her up and going. We can’t forget the superhero naming which was “Super Nikki.” Perfectly fitting for our little superhero. Once Nikki passed superhero training, it was time to get a temporary tattoo and of course she picked Wonder Woman.

Then it was the moment that we have been waiting for as Wonder Woman made Nikki into an official SuperHero and presented a cap and certificate. That was the icing on the cake!

With Wonder Woman leading the way we sang Happy Birthday to Super Nikki and made that one little wish come true!


Nikki had the most memorable 4th birthday that a little girl could ask for. Nikki has been fortunate to have met some memorable people already from WWE superstars to princesses but Wonder Woman was the most special one of all.

This year we struggled to figure out what we wanted to give Nikki for her fourth birthday. Nikki is very lucky as she has all the toys and clothes that she would ever need so I was at a loss on what to get her. Until I remembered Ever After Entertainment (how could I ever forget!) and thought why not give her an experience that she will remember for a lifetime. It so happened that Nikki made this wish that all she wanted was Wonder Woman on her birthday. So what better way then to put the two together.

Wonder Woman fulfilled that wish with style and grace as we couldn’t expect anything less from the Princess of the Amazons. Nikki loved the story, superhero training, temporary tattoos and just being with her Superhero.

Thank you Ever After Entertainment team for another job well done and for entertaining our Super Nikki and our family as well.

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

The “Once Upon A Time” Of Ever After Entertainment

Every story starts with Once Upon A Time and we love getting the story of how it all began. That is what makes stories so wonderful to tell.

We love Ever After Entertainment (just see our raving review on them) and we wanted to know about how their “Once Upon A Time” came to be.

We had the honour to interview the founder of Ever After Entertainment, Stefanie to get the exclusive scoop.

Before we whisk you away into “Once Upon A Time,” let us remind everyone what Ever After Entertainment does.

They provide an experience like no other as they bring magic to a celebration. Whether it is a princess, a fairytale character, superhero, or star wars character, they bring it to your front door to make the believers believe that dreams come true.

“We believe in making dreams come true by inspiring the imagination of children, both young and young at heart.” – Ever After Entertainment

Now it is time for our exclusive scoop with Stefanie who encompasses all qualities that one would admire in a princess. She is kind, intelligent, and a strong woman and you will see that from our interview.

Once Upon A Time…

When and what inspired you to start Ever After Entertainment?

I started Ever After Entertainment right after I finished an intensive two year musical theatre conservatory in New York City, called Circle in the Square Theatre School. I adored musical theatre and performing, so when I heard that some of my classmates worked for similar companies in the states, I was immediately inspired to start something of my own. I have always loved anything to do with Disney Princesses! I grew up on all the movies, so performing as a classic princess seemed like the perfect fit!

Owner and founder, Stefanie, in the centre of some amazing Princesses (Belle, Ariel, Cinderella and Aurora).

What was the first year like?

The first years was super tough – for the first six months, the phones were quiet. I didn’t really know where to start and I was relying on “old school methods” of marketing to get my name out in the community, and that just was not working for me. As soon as I started to figure out what type of advertising worked, business began to pick up, and it picked up fast! It was definitely an exciting time when the phones started ringing, but I quickly realized that no one was going to knock on my door and ask me to come to their party. When we were just starting out, I had to go out and do free events to market Ever After Entertainment. Anything from school events, city fairs and free birthday parties – if there was someone who wanted a princess, I was there!

Who has been your most popular character request?

Elsa…Elsa and Elsa! As soon as Frozen came out, “Elsa” or the “Ice Queen” was the most requested character. We had to hire 5 performers in 1 month just to keep up! Now as the Frozen craze has died down a little, some of the more classically loved princesses are becoming more popular. My personal favourites are Beauty and The Little Mermaid – both are requested regularly.

Why is providing a magical experience important to you?

I’ve been a huge Disney Princess fan since I was three years old and I discovered The Little Mermaid. I would eat, sleep and breath everything Ariel! I know that if I had the opportunity to have Ariel attend my birthday party as a child, that would have made my year! Knowing that we can make a child’s dreams come true by bringing their hero to life, means so much to me. These princess characters teach children lessons about family, friends, passion and love, and we are so lucky that we get to bring those lessons and magic to people’s families and homes.

How do you find the perfect person to play the part?

All of Ever After Entertainment’s princess performers are professionally trained actors and singers. We want our performers to not only look like the princesses they are portraying, but they also must embody their personality and be able to sing all their signature songs. Our cast is filled with a diverse group of wonderfully talented ladies from all over the GTA – but they all must have a love for children, and of course, a love for princesses!

Where would you like to see Ever After Entertainment in the next five years?

I would love to see Ever After Entertainment grow across Ontario. Ideally we would love to have performers in all different regions across Southern Ontario, so that we can provide a magical birthday experience to children and their families all over the GTA.

Who is your favourite Princess to play?

It’s so hard to choose! I think if I had to pick one, it would be Ariel. I mean, what girl doesn’t want to be a mermaid?! I just love Ariel’s songs, and story – and it’s so much fun to be a red head. Like I said earlier, The Little Mermaid was my most beloved movie growing up, so she is of course my favourite princess to portray!

This is how Ever After Entertainment got it’s “Once Upon A Time” and some more inside scoops of this impeccable company. Special thank you to Stefanie for giving us the opportunity to interview her as it was a true honor.

We at Momma Braga can’t say it enough that Ever After Entertainment is truly the very best! Once you book with them you can rest assure that your celebration will be that much better! They truly pride themselves of staying authentic and professional from beginning to end. It is a magical experience for all and you won’t regret having them there.

Ever After Entertainment Adds Disney Magic!

“Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever.” – Walt Disney

The best part about watching Disney movies is the magic that it brings through every story and character that they create. This magic can also be seen come to life when you visit the amusement parks all over the world. This is why many say that it’s an experience of a lifetime…

Just imagine being able to have this magic part of your special occasions such as your child’s birthday?!

Ever After Entertainment in Toronto is doing exactly that! They offer that magic and authenticity to your front door with princesses, fairy tale, superheroes and star war characters.

I had the honor of partnering up with Ever After Entertainment to see what they were all about and to get the first hand experience to share with all my loyal readers and fans.

This past weekend we celebrated my daughter, Nikki’s third birthday and we invited Princess Belle to join our festivities in which Ever After Entertainment made it happen for us. We were fortunate to have Belle available as we know that a Princess’ schedule can get hectic.

Princess Belle called before her arrival to let me know that she was almost at our home (I have to admit that I was extremely excited with the phone call). I got the 6 children (3 girls and 3 boys) ready to greet Princess Belle in our living room.

Princess Belle gracefully entered and all the children were in shock to see that Belle was really there. My daughter was so excited that she couldn’t stop smiling from ear to ear and said, “Princess Belle came to my party!” All the kids quickly gathered around to see what was in store for them. Belle started off with a get to know each other where she asked each one their name, age and who their favorite princess or superhero is. Each child disclosed with great delight all the information that Belle had requested (it was really cute to see!). Of course Nikki was excited to let Belle know that she was her favorite!

The next part was the enchanting singing performance and it was truly spectacular! Many of my guests couldn’t believe how beautiful Belle sung and some thought it was a recording as it was that good!

Special story time was the next activity where Princess Belle shares her story with all the party guests and it was captivating even for all the adults that were in attendance.

Then it was some interactive fun with dance freeze. It really got the children up and dancing. They all had a real blast and of course prizes were awarded at the end. But the magic didn’t end there as all the party guests got to either get a makeover or magical tattoos for those who wanted one. All our party guests wanted a magical makeover and they even got some Pixie Dust too! It was so great!

We then took the party outside for the signing of Happy Birthday which Nikki loved! Nikki even shouted out, “Come Belle. Come with me outside!” We all sang Happy Birthday and then the most special moment happened when Nikki was crowned and made into an honorary princess. I have to admit my eyes were teary as I saw my little princess filled with such joy with her very own tiara and certificate.

Then everyone had a chance to take a picture with Princess Belle before she had to return to her Princess duties. We even had a few adults at the party sneak in some photos and selfies before she left. Of course Momma Braga had to take a picture too as she has been my favorite princess since 1991 (the original release year of Beauty and the Beast).

We all said good-bye to Princess Belle and every guest talked about how great the experience was. From the youngest at 3 to the youngest at heart at 65, it was enjoyed by all.

So what can I possibly say about this experience and what score does it get on the #MelandNikkiReview?

It was a superb and magical experience and we rate it a 5+++ stars out of 5! Highest rating to date on the #MelandNikkiReview and has made it onto the #MommaBragaRecommended list.

Ever After Entertainment provided us with superior service from start to finish. They offered us Disney magic that one would only think could come true in dreams. Princess Belle made my daughter the happiest girl in the world and as a parent that is the only thing I could ever ask for. The pure joy and entertainment she received tickled my heart pink! Not to mention the joy she provided to the older guests who were big fans of hers. She not only made the birthday girl’s wish come true but to many others too (like myself). The princess party program was perfect and kept the children highly entertained! If you have been to a kid’s party, you do notice that it can be a little hectic. But for that one hour it was organized and filled with admiration.

Ever After Entertainment offered so much more than a character to celebrate a special occasion. They offered an opportunity for the adults to feel like a kid again and to the children, that dreams can come true if you believe.

If you are looking for entertainment for your child’s party or even for special event like a bridal shower, look no further as Ever After Entertainment is the top choice. They offer different types of parties that you will need to check out such as the Princess PartyFairytale Party, Superhero Party, and Star Warrior Party. There are so many options and no matter which one you pick, it will not disappoint! Make sure to book in advance and you can check out their pricing here. You will need to tell me how you enjoyed your party as I would love to hear about it! I am already thinking about which one I want next year for Nikki’s birthday and maybe for my own. 😉

Special thank you to Stefanie and Princess Belle from Ever After Entertainment for allowing us to imagine, “Far off places, daring swordfights, magic spells, a prince in disguise.” – Belle
