Back in May of 2012, The Avengers Movie was released. I’m embarrassed to say that my friends and I didn't realize the back story of the Avengers.
Food Choices? It had to be BBQ! Can’t get more American than that!
Let’s talk decorations! Patriotic Bunting, a few posters, a life size Captain America Stand up, A homemade Captain America Banner…( My friend Jen LOVES to hammer rivets LOL!! ) I also bought a captain America tablecloth and some cute plastic rings to top the cupcakes.
I made a 3’ x 5’ banner for the outside of the house that pointed to our front door that said “CAPTAIN AMERICA SECRET HEADQUARTERS THIS WAY” I had so much fun designing it, that I did a second poster effect on top of that poster to give the illusion that “RED SKULL’s SUPER SECRET HEADQUARTERS “ As if that wasn't enough, I made my husband drag a desk outside and we set up coffee, donuts, applications for anyone wanting to join “the destruction of everything you know and love organization” LOL Crazy, Right? I even made business cards to set on his desk.
I always like to include dinner programs for my party's. This one was no different. I took the Trivia approach and coupled it with as many fun facts as I could find and added the best posters to create a fun 3 page double sided book that I gave to everyone.
I bought a Captain America Shield to be given to the winner of the trivia game in the program, and I bought Marvel Trading Cards to give out throughout the evening.
I hope you enjoy the pictures -
