Superhero Birthday Party
This is what Tai Jung said about planning/styling the party:
“My little guys, Louis is all about superheroes these days. So for his 4th birthday party, throwing him a superhero bash was a no-brainer. While Louis is into all kinds of superheroes, he’s specifically obsessed with lighting bolts since in his little mind, lighting bolts equal super powers! So when I styled his party, naturally lightning bolt was the key element of the party. It’s iconic yet simple and definitely helped set the modern look of this superhero party!
The party was held in the backyard of our own house. For the decorations, my partner, Yao and I built a bright and colorful balloon garland to give the party a powerful vibe. We attached the balloons to a backdrop stand along with a cheerful superhero garland and a big lightning bolt foil balloon to create a power-infused fun background behind the kids table.
When it comes to tablescaping for the kids table, I deliberately went with a white tablecloth with a black-n-white striped runner so the rest of bright decorations and tableware could really pop. I used some of Louis’ favorite superhero toys and a mini cinema lightbox as the centerpiece around the superhero themed birthday cake. They really helped set the scene! For the tableware, I got them from Momo Party, an online party boutique. I love the unique and stylish party goods they curate by theme. It makes party planning so much easier!
Lastly, I covered the kids’ seats with capes in different colors and prepared some superhero masks for each little guest to play dress-up during the party.
Each world-saving hero deserves some special cakes and treats for their birthday and so does my little superhero! I got an awesome custom cake from Daphne at DH Cake Studio. It has a modern design of a city skyline at the bottom and superhero masks at the top. In addition, I dressed the cake with some comic speech bubble cake toppers and a glitter gold number 4 candle. The cake was so perfect that many of our guests couldn’t believe it was a real cake. Daphne did such an amazing job!
Yao had this brilliant idea of creating a fantastic backdrop in the shape of a lightning bolt with foil fringe curtains. We created this epic photo booth backdrop the day before the party. We knew it wasn’t an easy task but boy did it turn out so awesome! We got so many wows and oohs from our guests! I specifically loved the pairing of the jumbo batman mask foil balloon. How cool is that?! I also prepared some superhero photo booth props for fun photos and Boomerang moments. Our guests of all ages had such a fun time!
Besides the bounce house and trampoline, I also got a super rad gold piñata in the shape of lightning bolt and filled it with delicious treats and superhero themed goodies. It matched perfectly with the whole party theme and kids had a blast releasing their super energy during piñata time!
Lastly, all the little heroes went home happily with favor bags filled with superhero themed goodies. I used a superhero rubber stamp for the bags. Very simple but I absolutely loved the modern and chic look of it!”
