Superhero Capes Kids birthday Party Idea

I can’t think of too many things that generate more excitement at the start of a party than welcoming guests with hero capes representing many famed super heroes.  Dressing the part is a great way to kick off a party!  Capes were neatly displayed for guests to choose from and hung under an adorable comic book inspired sign encouraging each child to get suited up in hero gear. 

Costumes were just the beginning of the fun to come.  Once they were officially outfitted, the little heroes and heroines were invited to participate in a crash, boom and wow course on how to be a real life super hero!  Isn’t super hero training such a perfect choice for a super hero birthday party?  Guests summoned their secret powers to slide, crawl, fly, jump, sing and fight off evil. Thankfully, “evil” came in the form of a stuffed monster for this showdown.  Keren had arranged for some pretty super “friends” to come help with the training and celebration: Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk and Captain Marvel!  I bet guests loved posing in front of the oversized super hero themed backdrop with these awesome friends.  The event space was so fun with classic comic book hero prints displayed all around the room.

Superhero Themed Boys Birthday Party Food Idea
Super heroes in all sizes tend to come with super appetites.  After expending so much energy training and fighting off evil, they were ready to power up on the scrumptious all-American feast Keren had arranged for them.  The spread looked amazing and featured individually wrapped super hero sliders (Dishful Catering) suited up in printable emblems, fries served in custom printed cones and even individual portions of mac and cheese!  I love how each serving had a coordinating super hero logo on top; I bet guests loved looking for the logo of their favorite hero.  Other super eats by Alex Nirenberg included color coordinating chevron boxes filled with popcorn, mini Greek salads portioned in individual cups plus additional veggies and salads.  Don’t miss the cute labels such as “broccoli that will make you strong”.  And did you spy the condiment bottles, all decked out in pop art inspired labels?  Mayo, mustard and ketchup have never looked so awesome!
Boys Superhero Themed Birthday Cake Party Idea

Of course, the cake stole the show, standing 3-tiers tall with fondant detailing inspired by Batman, Captain America and Spiderman. Keren’s Party Cakes did such a fabulous job on both the cake and cupcakes!  I loved the use of black containers, dressed up with window cutouts to look like a city skyline of buildings.  They added a perfect “super hero” touch.  Many popular hero figurines stood victoriously on top of the buildings protecting the food below.

Keren packed a punch with an awesome beverage display too!  Mini water bottles were embellished with hero inspired beverage wraps. A beverage jar was filled with another thirst quenching option.
