Superhero Party Part 3: The Centerpieces

One thing you’ll realize about me is that I LOOOOVE candy buffets.  LOVE!  I think it’s must-have at every party.  You get to be really creative with the set-up, the candy colors, and also the candy names!  For Gavin’s party, I wanted it to serve 2 purposes: a candy buffet AND as centerpieces.  I wanted to create a “city-scape” full of candy and other party favors:

We gave the candy buffet “city-scape” a sort of 3-D effect by creating a city-scape backdrop and square plastic canisters.  The buffet included candy and favors like lollipops as “power pops,” “kryptonite” candy rocks, superhero temporary tattoos, pop rocks as “exploding rocks,” “invisibility capsules,” and “x-ray vision vitamins!”

We had paper bags at the end of the table for the kid’s and parents to fill with goodies from  this SUPER candy buffet.

Superhero Birthday Party {Comic book Style}

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!

Available in pewter and gold, these lids fit your standard mason jars.  Perfect if you’re planning on serving your drinks in them at your party. The center hole is a snug 1/4″ and the largest part of the daisy cut is a loose 1/4″ diameter which makes these little gems perfect for your paper straws to fit right in them.

“So, what’s this mason jar craze all about,” I asked myself. Well… a little history report (courtesy of good ol’ Wikipedia) about the classic mason jar is that it was first invented and patented in 1858 by Philadelphia tinsmith John Landis Mason. As we all know, its original use and function was for canning and preserving fruit. They were made in various shapes, colors, and sizes well into the 90’s and even to present day.  So, you can imagine original mason jars being sought-after by antique collectors and the price some people will pay based on its age, rarity, and condition.

It’s no wonder having mason jars at your event just adds such a lovely vintage feel.  And oh the many wonders you can do with them!
