When my daughter asked her son Devon what kind of party he would like for his 7th. birthday his immediate reply was Super Hero. He had something very definite in mind, he wanted to dress as his current favorite super hero, Captain America, and wanted his guests to come dressed as their favorite hero. He wanted a Captain America cake and party colors of red, white, and blue.
It was a simple enough request, specially when my daughter lucked out and found that the local Dollar Store had just set out their 4th. of July party stuff. It didn’t take much effort to find party goods in the theme colors.
We started by having invitations designed and printed. The invitations came out really cute, we used a photo of Devon in his Captain America costume and made sure to let the guests know to come in their super hero costumes.
Using the same photo we had this banner made to hang outside the house.
This comic strip was created and each panel was printed and mounted on cardboard to make lawn signs which lined the walkway to the front door.
As with most parties the dessert/candy bar was the focal point, it greeted guests as they arrived. My daughter is lucky enough to have a friend whose son works at the local movie theater, he was able to get movie posters from the recent super hero flicks. If you don’t know anyone who works at a movie theater you can ask the manager of your neighborhood theater if you can have or purchase posters he may have. Otherwise you can purchase movie posters from Amazon. (affiliate link)
My daughter didn’t want to cook so she had the event catered by Panda Express, their orange chicken is one of Devon’s favorites. Panda Express offers a party menu that comes with a choice of 2 entrees, a starch, and a vegetable. My daughter ordered two of them and doubled up on everything, she had to feed 60. We prettied up the buffet table with menu cards.
We did the same for the candy buffet and framed this sign.
We placed this sticker on clear plastic treat bags for the candy buffet. They were printed on Avery Print-to-the-Edge 2.5″ Round Labels. (Affiliate link)
These labels were printed on Avery Durable Wraparound Labels and stuck them on water bottles. (Affiliate link)
My daughter and son-in-law made this photo booth backdrop using a plastic table cloth and gluing the buildings cut from construction paper.
We made super hero sound effects, printed them, cut them out, and mounted them on cardstock and taped plastic straws behind each. The kids could choose the sound effect the wanted and hold them up for their photo.
The kids had lots of fun. The adults did too!
Here are the sound effects we created. You can use them for your photo booth or hang them around the house for decoration.
