3-D letters spelled Gavin’s name as part of the table decor
For party favors, we made superhero capes and masks that came in “TOP SECRET MISSION” boxes. Each cape was personalized with initials on them. Each box also came with a superhero badge for added fun! We found the ID badge printable here and just put them in plastic badge holders.
The kids got to be SUPERHEROES for a day (or two…according to their moms, some even wore them to Target the next day!) It made it so worth the late nights sewing these together. Thank you, Mdm. Zapata, my high school home economics teacher, for those lessons on how to hand-stitch pajamas! Who knew they would come in handy one day!
It was a long week of prepping for my son Gavin’s 4th birthday party. He has been obsessed with the whole superhero thing (what 4 year old isn’t?) so of course I knew I had to throw a superhero themed birthday party for him. We decided to incorporate all the superheroes- comic book style- and we held it at Chuck E. Cheese’s! It’s a great place to throw parties in my opinion. Their birthday packages include everything– including set up and clean up! It was the first party we had ever attended or held there. I figured that he and his 4-year-old buddies from school would have a blast playing games, going on the rides, and climbing up and down the play area/jungle gym. Their party package comes with “rock-star” themed party decor so I let them know I was bringing in m own supplies and decor and they were very accommodating. It was nice to have Gavin’s party stand out since there were probably 10 other parties going on simultaneously in their huge open party area. I was thrilled about how everything turned out… and I had the best time planning and hand-making most of his decor! So here are some details and photos from his Superhero Comic-book Styled Party:
We started with the coolest birthday invitations from The Scrap Shoppe. They were made to look like the front page of a newspaper which I thought was so unique. I made these comic-book envelope to compliment them and tie-in the whole theme. These invites also come with matching printable ‘Thank You’ cards which is double amazing!
