Annabella’s 6th Birthday: Wonder Woman Theme
By age 6, Annabella’s favourite princess was no longer a Disney one. I knew the best way to celebrate my sophisticated little hero was with my Wonder Woman cape on. I loved planning this day!
The colours were easy to choose – based on both the vintage and modern Wonder Woman; red, gold and blue.
Although I was happy playing the part (I had the costume already!) I booked our Wonder Woman through The Superhero Company (located right here, in the GTA). This WW had a ton of energy; the kids all got a full workout. She had an assistant with her, but the assistant wasn’t dressed up in costume, which I didn’t think was too cool. Even I didn’t wear my regular human clothes that day!
I ordered my Wonder Woman cake from a local Windsor, Ontario mom (who I found on the All 4 Mama’s Facebook Group many years ago). I found out recently that she no longer has her bakery business open (heartbroken), however for reference, her company name was Yummy Tummies by Joline. She made the cookies as well! Edible art, I tell you; it’s beautiful AND delicious.
The cake pops I order through a co-worker (when I worked at TD), and these cake pops are melt-in-your-mouth good. I usually steal away one before the party begins, otherwise I know there won’t be any left! (I can provide her details through email/message).
I also tried to be creative with the candy. I purchased all the candy from Bulk Barn, all the red ones I could find, and the multi-coloured Twizzlers I tied into knots to resemble Wonder Woman’s lasso!
Since I was only able to find modern/teen/tween versions of Wonder Woman decor with her superhero crew at Party City, I had to search through Amazon and Etsy for the original Wonder Woman decorations. I found beautiful artwork that I printed and put into frames (from Dollarama). The vintage balloons were ordered from Bargain Balloons (located in Mississauga). I also added some of our Wonder Woman and DC Superhero books as decor as well! For an extra personal touch, I left out blank pages of paper and asked guests to write down what they thought Annabella’s superhero power is. We had lots of fun reading those the next day. 🙂 This was also the first time I purchased a photo backdrop and photo props for a little photo booth fun! Everyone loved it. Can’t say I wasn’t super scared when all the kids surrounded Wonder Woman during their photo session and the weight of everyone against Wonder Woman almost made the backdrop collapse! For party favours, I gave each child a superhero mask and cape, with tattoos, stickers and pencils! On each party favour bag (Dollarama) I cut and glued the Wonder Woman logo, with each child’s name.
Overall, our Wonder Woman superhero party was a huge success, all of the kids (and parents) had an amazing time.
