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!

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.
Wooden stand/holder with chalkboard front to write whatever you want it to say.
One of the things you can’t do at Chuck E. Cheese’s (probably for a lot of venues) is hang decor from the ceiling or on the wall. So I was ALMOST not going to use the comic book banner I made out of actual comic book paper. Then I came up with a solution! I floated 2 giant 36″ balloons (in blue and red with big white polka dots) on each end of the table and tied the ends of the banner to them to hang it across the table. Because the paper was light enough, the balloons were able to dazzle quite nicely over the kids’ table.
