A Magical Birthday with My Perfect Princess Party

My Perfect Princess Party London

I love party planning and I especially love planning my daughter’s birthday parties. However, my daughter’s birthday is in February and having a winter birthday party is a bit challenging at times since the cold weather limits outdoor activities; finding a theme and having corresponding activities proves to be difficult.

Thankfully, I had My Perfect Princess Party recommended to me by a friend and I am so glad that I called them! They absolutely made my daughter’s 2nd birthday party a huge success and one that we will always remember.


My daughter, like most young girls, is obsessed with Disney’s Frozen, so what better winter theme to have for a February birthday party?! I knew that I could plan Frozen themed food and decorations but I was looking for something really “Frozen” to put it over the top for our guests and reinforce our Frozen theme. Enter My Perfect Princess Party!


My Perfect Princess Party Elsa

My Perfect Princess Party provides amazing princess parties all over Toronto, London and surrounding areas. They recently added Elsa and Anna to their available Disney princess characters.

I contacted them, which is very easily done online or also by phone. Their online booking system gets all of your party information, such as how many children are participating, your preferred date and character(s), a choice of activities and you can even add “extra magic packages” that include dress-up parties and a costume parade!

If you begin your planning process with them, you can even have an option to have personalized themed invitations sent to you as an electronic file that you can print at any photo printer.


I chose the “Fairytale Princess Party” package which includes:

  • 1-hour engagement, perfect for 3-9 year olds (although my daughter was turning two, she was completely engaged in all of the activities.)
  • A choice of characters: The Little Mermaid, Beauty, Cinderella, the Arabian Princess, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, the Highland Princess, the Frog Princess, Rapunzel, Princess Sophia, the Snow Princess (Anna), the Snow Queen
  • Your character then does the following:
    • Royal Entrance
    • Fairytale Story time
    • Royal Ball Sing-a-long and Dancing
    • Autographs
    • Royal Coronation for the Birthday Girl
    • Happy Birthday
    • Royal Farewell

There are other activities that you get to include as well, depending on the number of children at your party. Check out My Perfect Princess Party to get all the details.


My Perfect Princess Party

One of the included activities we chose was Perfect Princess Makeup and the kids loved it and I really appreciated that Queen Elsa explained to the little girls before applying their makeup, that princesses sometimes dress up by wearing makeup but that real princesses are beautiful just the way they are and don’t need make up!


My Perfect Princess Party

Within seconds of Queen Elsa entering our party, I knew we made the right choice for our party theme and activity. My daughter’s face lit up; she was in absolute awe. In her mind, the real Elsa just walked into her birthday party.

Elsa sang songs with them, (she had an amazing voice) and read a story to the girls as if she were the real Elsa recounting her adventures to them.

My Perfect Princess Party

Elsa took my daughter’s hand and made her feel like a special princess the whole time. Along with all of our guests, my husband and I watched the magical memories that were created for our daughter. We both got teary-eyed watching Elsa do her makeup and paint her nails. You could just see the amazement and total adoration in her eyes. This was a priceless experience and memory; we will never “let it go”!


While My Perfect Princess Party is certainly most popular among young girls, boys can enjoy as well! Boys under six usually enjoy the party as much as the girls. Older boys sometime need to be encouraged to participate but My Perfect Princess Party offers superhero or pirate tattoos and superhero or pirate colouring sheets as well as prizes geared towards boys in the treasure box.


My Perfect Princess Party

After working with My Perfect Princess Party I highly recommend booking them for any little girl’s birthday party. Your little girl will be made to feel like a beautiful princess, completely special on her special day and you will have amazing magical memories.

You guests will be equally entertained and in awe, leaving you to relax and enjoy the event with your child.

A special thank you to H&S Studios for capturing our special day and allowing us to sit and enjoy the event right alongside our daughter without missing a beat!

Girl’s Night Out at the Western Fair District – #StackedDealFridays

Stacked Deal Fridays

It’s Friday night in London, wintertime and you’re a group of girlfriends who are so over the club scene; where do you go?

If that question has ever stumped you before, I have the answer for you, and it’s a good one!


Stacked Deal Fridays

This past Friday, my girlfriends and I got together for a night of fun with Stacked Deal Fridays at the Western Fair District; no kids, no husbands, just food, drinks, good company and fun.

Haven’t heard of Stacked Deal Fridays before? Well here is how it works:

You pay $45 and you get some awesome stuff for that:

  • Buffet dinner at the Top of the Fair Restaurant
  • Horse racing ($5 voucher for betting)
  • YukYuk’s comedy show
  • Gaming ($10 voucher for slots)

Top  of the Fair Restaurant

Our night started at the Top of the Fair Restaurant with a delicious buffet dinner. We were all impressed with the selection and quality of food. During dinner we learned the ins and outs of horse betting, placed our bets and watched the races from our table. It was so much fun to enjoy good conversation, a nice dinner, drinks and an activity that we don’t normally do.

We even got to make a visit all the way up to the literal top of the fair to visit Sugar and the judges calling the horse races. This was a fun and educational experience* – it was really cool to get a bird’s eye view of the horses and to learn a little more about how horse racing works.

Stacked Fridays

After dinner, we made a quick visit to the casino for some gaming. We stuck to the slot machines but you can also play Blackjack and Poker. We had a lot of fun trying our luck and sipping on some after-dinner-drinks.

Then it was on to YukYuk’s for the 10:30 comedy show. We really had a lot of fun with this. We had a booth seat with a direct view of the stage to take in all the hilarity. All the comedians were great but we had real belly laughs with Darren Frost. You can check ahead to see which comedians are headlining before you decide which Friday night you want to attend.

But, you should act fast as Stacked Deal Fridays are only available until the end of April (Apr. 24 is last Friday). You can find out all you need to know by visiting stackedfridays.com or call 519-438-7203 ex.252 to book your spot.

When I asked my friends what the highlight of the night was for them, this is what they said:

Definitely going into the judge’s box. – Mary

Spending time with the girls. I also enjoyed YukYuk’s – great place for friends to go and laugh together. Also, learning about horse racing was really fun too. – Sarah

Spending quality time with friends and YukYuk’s was hilarious! -Erika

For me, the entire night was a highlight, but I agree with my friends; YukYuk’s and horse racing are two activities that we never think of doing on a regular Friday night, let alone a girl’s night, but it was the perfect combination of events and one that I know you and your girlfriends will love too!

Have you been to the Western Fair District for the Stacked Deal? What are your thoughts?

Disclaimer: I was compensated for sharing my experience but all opinions are completely my own and that of my friends.  

*Note: visiting the judges box is not guaranteed to be included in the Stacked Deal.
