For my son's 6th birthday, he requested a Superhero Party. After doing some online research, I found that there wasn't much about this party theme so I had to really start from scratch. I purchased this Superhero Collection on Etsy.com from woofyworld. I used the images on everything from the invitations to the Superhero Certification tags and certificates, favor boxes and cupcake toppers. The color scheme for the party was red, blue, yellow and black.
For the party we wanted to have a central theme and wanted all the party guests to go through the Superhero Academy to become certified Superheros. I created a Certification tag for each guest to complete six tasks in order to become a Superhero. Once they completed each task they got a corresponding sticker that I created on their tag. Once completing all six tasks they received their Superhero Certification Certificate. The tasks included: creating a Superhero Name, Super Power, designing outfit (each guest created a mask and/or superhero cuffs), leaped over a tall building in a single bound, exhibited superhuman strength and defeated the villain.
For the dessert table, I wanted to stick with the four-colored Superhero theme by making Cake Pops, Chocolate covered marshmallows, strawberries, two flavors of cupcakes (Funfetti and Devil's Food Cake). For the candy, thanks to Sweet Treats & Designs, I had a candy buffet containing gummy bears, gum balls, candy coated sunflower seeds, cinnamon bears and malt balls.
As for decor of the room (aka my living room) I hung streamers of all four colors from the ceiling. The backdrop of the dessert table featured Superhero terms.
The favor boxes contained Superhero trading cards, an actual Superhero and Superhero candy (candy sticks, taffy, gummies and sweet tarts).
To demonstrate their Superhuman strength, I created a barbel out of a wooden dowel and two 8-inch Styrofoam balls that I spray-painted black and painted "500" on each weight.
Similar to the Superhero art, I found theses amazing capes on Etsy.com from firstcrushdesigns. I bought a cape for the birthday boy who wanted a Superman-inspired cape (blue and red reversible cape) and for Jackson who wanted a Batman-inspired cape (black and yellow reversible cape).
