Calling all Super Heroes!! Grab your mask and capes, it's time to Celebrate!
It came as no surprise to me when my son asked for a Super Hero party for his 5th birthday. He is obsessed with all things Super Hero. His favorites are Batman, Super Man, Spider Man and Hulk. We decided to do a general " Super Hero " theme and have all of the super heroes. To my surprise it actually made the party planning process a lot easier.
As for the venue we decided to rent a cabin at the lake. Price wise we weren't out much more than what we would have paid to rent the local park. The boys love staying over night at cabins and hotels. So the fact that we got to have the party and then spend the night was an extra little birthday gift that he loved.
With the decor I was able to find almost everything I needed at Oriental Trading. We decided to do each table in a different character.We had a Batman table, Super Man table, Hulk table and a Spider Man table.
Plates, cups and napkins would have gotten expensive if I had to buy several different packs of each character. Instead I decided to use the Super Hero theme from Oriental Trading. It's got very bright colors with slogans like Bam, Ka Pow and Wham on them. It went perfect with the Super Hero characters.
I got the matching cupcake kits to go with it which had the liners and picks included. I had my mother in law to make the cupcakes which saved a lot of money. She did a great job, they were amazing!
My favorite piece of decor was the Large City Skyscraper Cupcake Holder also from Oriental Trading. It has 4 tiers and plenty of room for cupcakes or even appetizers. It's made of a black foam and cardboard and was very easily assembled. I sit it in the middle of the Spider Man table because the table cover had sky scrapers all over it. We also used this table to hold the plates and utensils. It looked pretty amazing if I do say so myself :)
Of course no party is complete without goody bags for the kids. This year we decided to do treat boxes instead of bags. I got the Super Hero Treat Boxes (less than $5 for a dozen) and all of the goodies from Oriental Trading. I let the boys help me choose what kinds of novelty items we would include in the boxes. They chose the Action Packed Mini Bubbles ( around $7 for a box of 24 bottles) the paper Super Hero Masks, Super Hero Sun Glasses and the Super Hero Tumblers with the Super Hero Straws. Each kid ended up getting one of everything and absolutely loved them. To add a personal touch I ordered some customized Hulk stickers from Label Daddy and got "Ashtons Party" personalized on them. We stuck one on each treat box.
The kids enjoyed just chasing each other around and playing with their goodies from the treat boxes, which was a good thing considering I completely forgot to buy any games (ooops) All in all it was an amazing party with good food, amazing friends and family and a great time. It was nice being out in nature enjoying the outdoors.
