When does a little boy’s birthday party become more than a birthday party? When it’s a party for the Warriors! This themed event of superhero ideas and decorations was conceived of for the dual purpose of celebrating James on his fifth birthday, and for raising awareness of the Epilepsy Warriors Foundation. Susan Noble, founder and president of this non-profit for kids with epilepsy and seizures, wants the Foundation to be a blessing for children who are differently abledand their parents. Party With the Warriors was started to help fund the Foundation. I think you’ll enjoy learning about this special little guy and the organization who recently celebrated him.

- Any little boy would love this action packed Superhero Birthday Party.
James was born via an emergency C-section due to lack of movement and doctor concern that the baby was in distress. James did not cry when he was born; he had a two-vessel cord, low muscle tone and his little arms were shaking. He was sent to NICU for further exams. What was discovered? James had suffered a stroke in utero. Fast forward through many hours of soul-searching, doctor appointments, hospital visits and therapies. Currently James cannot hold his head up, sit, stand, walk, or eat by mouth; but he is loved! He must be continuously hooked to a monitor that measures oxygen levels and heart rate. His brain is consistently seizing and because of that, he needs frequent suctioning. James must be attended 24/page/7.
If you’re around James long enough youll learn what it means to be special because of who you are, not because of what you can do. You can appreciate parents who love their child, just like any good parent. All parents want to celebrate their children and when you catch a glimmer of a boy who has gone through so much, you know a superhero party is just the theme to celebrate him.
The superhero dessert table with a polka-dotted, vintage comic book vibe background boasted a cityscape in red, white and blue with yellow accents. The coordinating banner over the table bestowed birthday greetings over an array of tempting desserts. Even though James couldn’t taste the treats, his eyes devoured the colorful decorations.
Super “J” was celebrated with a handsome, double tiered birthday cake covered in fun pows, zaps and superhero logos by Icing Smiles. James enjoyed everyone singing Happy Birthday to him; he even started to cry and that was a good response for him.
Haleybelles Cupcakes Kaboom Cupcakes in polka-dotted wrappers were topped with sprinkles, the Superman “S” and some even wore edible capes! Poppy Event Design had party color-coordinated sprinkles on their cakepops.

The guest table was enhanced with a namesake wooden centerpiece by Sweetly Chic Events and Design and also included multi-colored candies, Kryptonite Jello and Super Power Juice.
Water bottles got in on the action with cityscape wraps.
The birthday boy was dressed in a custom T-shirt and even his motorized chair was party ready in a star studded cape. A number of his guests also wore superhero styled T’s. Kids enjoyed posing with superhero mask props but the face painting is what captured their attention.
After the open house celebration, guests got to take home t-shirts and customized lollipops by Lollipics Share Happy.
