I’m not your regular Princess/Superhero character business owner, as I’ve never been a Princess, Superhero, or Mascot actor myself… nor would I try to (I think my voice may sound more like a Shrek than a Princess). I am a mom, an avid Disney and Superhero lover, and most of all – looking to help make other moms’ and dads’ lives easier with a one-stop-party shop in Innisfil and the surrounding areas.
Prior to becoming a mom to my 3 little princesses, I was considered “one of those people” with my friends and family. Essentially, I was a grown adult that was totally obsessed with Disney. I mean… Disney EVERYTHING! I had my own Disney movie club account and ordered Disney T-shirts and clothing and went to Disney on Ice, even prior to having kids! My husband drew the line at going to Disneyworld without having any children!
Now that I have my 3 daughters, you can imagine how their bedrooms are adorned with Disney everything. We have literally gone to every single Disney on Ice (minus recent years thanks to COVID), and prior to the pandemic hitting, we were finally in the midst of planning our very first trip to Disneyworld, along with a Disney cruise! Well, the pandemic hit, and plans changed… as they did for all of us, and we were unable to go to Disneyworld.
My youngest daughter just turned 2 a few months ago and I wanted to do a big bash in our backyard – especially since she missed her 1st birthday, thanks again to Covid. We moved out of Toronto about a year ago to live in Innisfil with more room for our kids to run around safely. Innisfil is such a great little community with lots of room for our children to run around and so many nice local, small-town things to do! I started my search for vendors in the area and realized very quickly that the population here is growing so fast that access to certain types of services is really difficult to find – especially when it comes to children’s activities and events. I was reaching out to vendors between 2-5 times to even get a response and oftentimes was told they weren’t able to assist me as they were already booked. My search for local entertainment proved fruitless as many of these services are in the GTA and even IF they were to travel up North to Innisfil… they would be charging an arm and a leg for travel fees! This… is where my idea of Dream Parties was born.
We are starting off with Princess, Mascot, and Superhero parties, but aim to become the one-stop-shop for parents to help them in planning these “dream parties” for their little ones and perhaps not so little ones! (There’s no age limit for Princess, Superheroes or Mascot in my book!) We will take the approach to support locals and look for local businesses to partner with for all aspects of Birthdays and special events! I am so excited to be venturing down this path with my 3 little ones in tow and my business partner husband who has been working behind the scenes to help make things happen. We are excited to make memories as a family-based, local business and to help other families make memories with the services that we provide! 🙂
