Iron Man + Hulk & Spiderman Superhero Party
Iron Man + Hulk & Spiderman Superhero Party Details:
This is what Ashleigh shared about the event- “I had soooo much fun styling and designing this Superhero themed birthday party for my 3 little boys, Austin, Braxton, and Carter! They all have birthdays within a month, so one big party to celebrate them all was perfect!
They absolutely love anything and everything related to superheros so I went to work with making an unforgettable and fun filled party for them!
Let’s start with the invitation! I decided to go with a newspaper style invite. The newspaper headline read “Calling All Superheros” and the text explained that three Superheros had upcoming birthdays. Heather of Heather Nelson Design created this invitation which included a “You’re Invited” tag. The invites were printed in Reccolaction brand cardstock found at Michaels.
I folded and wrapped red and white twine around each invite and attached the “You’re invited” tags. Then, I placed each invite in a white envelope with custom labeling.
I served 3 cakes, one for each birthday boy who were turning 1, 3 and 6; gum balls, custom cookies, glazed donuts, chocolate/carmel apples from, multi colored Oreo tower and cupcakes!
The table was dressed with light grey linen from Linen Tablecloth and hung a black “Happy Birthday” banner. The backdrop included 3 of my boys favorite superheros, Iron Man, Hulk and Spiderman. The backdrop was designed by Heather Nelson Design.
I used all black cake stands and platters which were purchased from World Market.
Ice Cream shoppe:
This is my absolute favorite part of the whole party! The guests loved it! It was the first time my one year old tried ice cream and he thought it was the best thing ever!
The ice cream bar included chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream. Also included were Joy brand waffle ice cream cones which I dipped in bright white Wilton Candy melts. I then used Wilton sprinkles to decorate each cone and they were placed on a white cake stand that was purchased from Home Goods. Each cone represented a superhero.
The toppings included m&ms, gummy bears, Reese’s, chocolate chips, cherries, peanuts, Oreos, rainbow sprinkles, whipped cream, chocolate syrup, Carmel, and strawberry topping.
The cute little polka dot cups purchased from Hobby Lobby were dressed with superhero labels that matched the dessert table backdrop and a mini silver dessert spoon.
My super last minute add on were the 3 sundae-decorated cupcakes. I found those beauties at the local grocery store. (Score!)
My husband and I made the backdrop/tabletop awning using wood from Home Depot and fabric from Hobby Lobby. I purchased the linen from Linen Tablecloth and dressed it with a DIY tassel banner. The 20×30 hanging sign was designed by Heather Nelson Design and printed at Walgreens. I hung the sign by using plastic chains that I spray painted silver. Chains found at Home Depot.
A superhero party has to have a newsstand right!?! I thought so! This brought in aspects of the newspaper style invite.
I created a simple newsstand for some of the party favors to be displayed on. It included coloring books with custom covers, chocolate candy bars with labels that matches the backdrop, flavored popcorn and striped popcorn boxes, superhero crayon packs, candy, Jones soda with personalized labels, superhero puzzle tins, and bottled water.
The bottom portion of the stand is actually a old diaper changing table! (Upcycle Win!)
My husband and I just painted it and made the awning to match the Ice Cream stand.
I love love love these “Paint Your Own Cookies” by Creeative Cookies by Ree. They were the perfect activity for the guest to do while everyone was arriving. I put each cookies in a clear box purchased from Clear Bags and attached a black “paint your own superhero cookie” label. I also provided a paint brush and little container of water.
As one of the party favors, we gave out personalized tumblers. The clear tumblers were ordered in bulk from the Dollar tree and I used my Cricut to cut the guest names out in vinyl.
I used light grey linen purchased from Linen Tablecloth. I rented black resin chairs from Allies Party Rentals. The centerpiece was really simply. I used a piece of wood, painted it black and I stood superheroes along the top. Hulk was excellent at hold the balloons!
There were a total of 18 kids that we had to keep entertained.
My favorite activity was the “Hulk Smash” punch game. The kids punch the hole to get a prize. My husband and I created this using plywood, a hole cutter, sander, hinges, and the cricut for the lettering.
Another activity the the coloring board. I simply printed a engineering print at Staples in B/W and attached it to a wood board. I caught a great deal on markers/colored pencils/crayons during a back to school sale.
Spider-Man’s appearance was a huge hit! He arrived bearing gifts for the birthday boys which were autographed Spider-Man frames. We hung Super Villains around the outside of the venue and gave all the guest a can of silly string. Spider-Man guided the guest to catch all the bad guys! The kids had a blast!
I almost forgot!!! We had a piñata! You can’t have a SoCal party without a piñata!!! No way! I purchased the pull string style piñata from Party City.
This was truly a joy to put together for my little boys. Their faces seeing the finished product made all the work worth it!
Until next year!”
