It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s a superhero birthday party for one lucky little 4-year old boy! What birthday boy doesn’t love getting his “boom”, “pow” and “wham” on while sporting a superhero cape?

Belinda, owner of Lil Miss Macaron (and who happens to be Hudson’s mom), summoned her own super powers in putting together a spectacular dessert display filled with an amazing birthday cake, cupcakes and colorful desserts to power up little party guests.

Check out the super details for ideas on party favors, superhero supplies, tabletop decorations, party games and crafts perfect for every superhero birthday party-loving boy.

Could you resist “ka-pow cupcakes”, “power-up cookies”, “super macs” or “invisibility (Jell-O Cups)”? I couldn’t either.

And look at that cake; with the bright fondant hero speech bubbles and custom name sign, it is a perfect focal point for the table!

Belinda added interest to her table with a pop art inspired printable banner designed by Loralee Lewis, a colorful table runner and varying heights of apothecary jars filled with other color-coordinating treats.

I’d say her dessert table definitely made the day!

Belinda may not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but she does know how to get the most out of her dining table space.

Each place setting was creatively comprised of a comic strip coloring page, which made a perfect placemat for guests to color, and a mask for them to decorate.

There were also beverages dressed up in custom, superhero wraps, with festive party straws and flags.

I love that super heroes could recharge their bodies and their brains at the dining table! This is a great way to have a single space serve two purposes.

Of course superheroes need super capes to make a proper party exit. Belinda created custom initial capes and matching cuffs for each party guest as their parting favor.

Now that they look the part, maybe they will be able to leap those tall buildings in a single bound; or at least dream it is so!
