How to Throw a Superhero-themed Birthday Party?

Written By: Claire Adams

Some things never change and one of them is the fact that almost every child has a favourite superhero. There are many reasons why having a superhero in life is important and beneficial. Kids look up to characters who are always ready to stand up and fight for what they believe in, even in situations when odds are definitely not in their favour, which is an important life lesson.

While still young, children simply love the fun and excitement brought about by their favourite character and their superpowers. So, why wouldn’t you throw your child a superhero-themed birthday party and make that day truly memorable? Here are some tips you can use if you want everyone to rave about your kid’s party.

Make sure you know enough about the superhero

If you’re not sure which superhero your child currently adores, try to talk to them and find out as much as possible about the reasons they like that particular character. This should help you prepare better and the avoid humiliation of throwing a party around the wrong superhero.

Then – the special gift

This is probably the most important part of the entire scenario – the birthday gift. When you find out who their favourite superhero is, one of the best things you can do is get them one of those amazing, superhero-themed hot toys. Vinyl pops are quite effective and sure to leave your little one speechless. It will most definitely become one of their most treasured toys and always remind them of their special birthday party.

Invitations

When your child’s friends receive their birthday party invitations, they should get a good idea about what the party will be like. The invitation is the first signal that it’s not going to be just another party, but a carefully prepared and fun event. Luckily, there are so many templates you can use to design perfect invitations that you only need to choose the best one. Make sure you check with your youngster what kind of invitation they find the most appealing.

Include everyone

It won’t be a real superhero-themed party if only the birthday kid is dressed up as a superhero, while their guests are wearing ordinary clothes. That’s why you need to ask everyone to come dressed up as per the theme of the party. If they don’t feel like wearing the same costume, they might choose some other character or even the superhero’s nemesis. Remember, the more diverse and colourful the costumes, the better the atmosphere.

Decorations

Again, it’s a great thing we’re living in the world where you can get some amazing birthday party decorations without breaking the bank. You can get cut-outs of the superhero and his/her friends and enemies, for example. Just imagine your son or daughter and their friends having a whale of time amongst the images of Batman, Robin, the Joker or Poison Ivy.

The cake

One of the most important features is surely the cake. Kids expect a superhero-themed party to have a cake to match the hype, which is why you need to do your absolute best to amaze everyone. This means you have to visit several cake shops in your neighbourhood, looking for the most breathtaking cake you can find. A wrong choice in terms of the birthday cake can really spoil the party, so be careful.

Games

You don’t expect a bunch of superheroes to be sitting around, looking at their mobile phones or tablets, do you? So, organise several games and prizes for the winners. For example, put stickers with superheroes on balloons and do the same with images of villains. Divide the guests into teams and ask them to burst the balloons with the villains. To make the things more entertaining, ask the kids to use only their feet to burst the balloons.

Superheroes are fun, birthday parties are fun, so why not combine them to make the ultimate birthday party for your little one? All the effort you invest will be worth it once you see the smiles on kids’ faces. Such parties don’t have to be very expensive, either, but you’d need to use your imagination and try just a bit harder to throw an amazing party.

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!

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.
