We love what we do. 

My name is Michelle Goodson. I'm the creator and owner at Storybook Birthdays. Together with my family I've created a fun, affordable, and memorable way to celebrate birthdays, special events, and accomplishments. All of our beautiful high quality costumes have been lovingly hand made by my mother who also answers your calls and prepares invoices. My husband helps with the heavy lifting, construction of props, and delivery for special events when needed. And my daughter is the inspiration behind the business. Our first party was hers and the smile on her face when her favorite princess arrived was priceless. Now she's a teenager and my best assistant. 

Our Performers are the best around. Each of them has been background checked and are held to the highest standard. Most of them are singers, actors, and models who regularly perform in local theater and appear in magazines, newspapers, and film. Many are involved in their churches and communities, and some teach pre-school, sports or music to children. They are trained to deliver a Storybook Birthdays Experience and are paid competitively for their talents. They always appreciate your feedback and reviews and will gladly accept a tip for a job well done.

About our Characters

Each costume is custom made using the popular styles and colors your children have grown to love. We do not use Disney Costumes, Halloween costumes, or any other Trademarked materials. Our characters may resemble Cinderella, Belle, Rapunzel, Spider-Man, Batman, or other popular character but we are in no way affiliated with any other trademarked entity. We try to deliver a one-of-a-kind experience that you cannot get elsewhere. It is not our intention to infringe on anyone's copyrights.

About our business

We are a legitimate, tax paying, licensed, and insured business. We have been in business since 2010 and have taken all the steps necessary to ensure that we operate within the law. We offer an experience that our competitors can't match. We may not always have the lowest price, but we try to meet every budget and maintain the high standards that you and your child deserve.

Why we do what we do

I created Storybook Birthdays in 2010 when my daughter was 3 years old. I was looking for a way to combine her love of princesses with my desire for her to enjoy reading. Of course, I read to her every day, but she didn't ever initiate story time. So, when I couldn't find a princess entertainer to do what I wanted for her 3rd Birthday, I trained a family friend to be the princess. I purchased a costume and planned the event, and it was a hit! Everyone loved it and encouraged me to turn this idea into a business. Best of all my daughter loved it! She began to want to read this story every day because the princess read it to her.

Over the years the business evolved to include high-quality custom-made costumes and professionally trained singers and actors. We've also inspired others to start similar businesses. We know you have choices when it comes to character entertainment. We love what we do, and I look forward to the opportunity to help you plan and entertain your child and party guests with the best quality children's entertainment on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
