Superhero Birthday Party

This past year Lil Bro turned 5 with a superhero themed birthday party.
I thought I would share a few pictures from his super fun party!

Lil' Bro ready for the party to start.
Superman and Batman cake. 
I had to search high and low on ebay for these cake pans. 
They are vintage and actually came with the face and chest symbols. 
Woohoo! 
This is the backdrop I made for the cake table. 
Just a simple tri-fold presentation board.
The buildings are made from black poster board and tissue paper.

The finished cake table.
Bro has the giant hulk smash hands.
I thought they worked great as balloon weights.
This game is made from the thick foam board.
I cut out the leters and other designs.
There are three different sized holes.
The kiddos threw bean bags through the holes.
I made all the kids masks and capes. 
I didn't get a picture of the capes.
I cut them from t-shirts.
You basically cut off the front of the shirt and the sleeves, but leave the neck in place.
They just slipped right over their heads and there was NO sewing involved.
T-shirt material is perfect for this, because the edges don't unravel or fray after cutting. 
I made red for the boys and pink for the girls.

We played two other games that I didn't get pictures of.
One was smash the villain. 
I cut out villain eye masks and taped them to balloons.
The kiddos had to smash (pop) the villains.
The other game I printed out pictures of different villains. 
I taped the pictures to cups and lined them up on the piano bench.
The kids threw small plastic airplanes at the cups to knock them off the bench.

Overall we didn't spend a ton on the party. 
I made everything including the cakes, food and decor. 
So that saved us a ton.
I usually only let my kids have a party every other year. 
The next party will be for Lil' Sis. 
No idea what that theme will be, because she's always changing her mind!

I am going to post a few more cake pictures of other cakes I made next week.
Happy weekend everyone!

Superhero themed birthday Party!! That seems just blasting. I really liked the idea of the DIY d├ęcor. All the decorations are amazing. I also attended a fun kids’ party last week at some domestic Los Angeles event venues. It was so adorable and even my daughter too had great time.
