If you are a supermom planning your kids party then you are going to love these superhero party ideas. You will find ideas for food, decor, and superhero themed activities that will make your party a huge success.
How Do You Throw A Superhero Party?
The first thing you need to decide is whether you are going to pick just ONE superhero or have them all at the party. If there is one superhero that they particularly love, then use that as the main theme. If they can’t decide then just use them all.
This is the perfect party for dressing up. Have your birthday child choose an outfit and then ask all the little friends to come dressed in their favorite hero attire.
Superhero Party Decorations
It is always recommended to have a party backdrop behind your food table. This backdrop can also be used as a photo booth. Choose 3 colors to create the backdrop. If you don’t want to create your own backdrop, you could purchase a skyline scene setter.
An easy way to give instant superhero appeal is to create buildings either on the food table or around the party area. This can be achieved with box’s of various sizes, wrapped in paper and have windows either stuck or drawn on.
Inflatable large superheroes or air walkers would be a lot of fun and a great way to bring the characters to life at a party.
There are so many licensed products for tablecloth’s, plates, cups, napkins and more. These are available in specific superhero characters or generic.
You could choose to have everything as characters, or you could use a bold tablecloth in the color of your superhero and then bring in the superhero into tableware. It depends how much of a presence you would like the superheroes to have in the decor.
Finish off the easy decor with a superhero party package. Printable’s are great for decorating water bottles, cupcakes, candy bars and for labeling food.
