Party Recap

Today I am featuring my very special friend’s daughter’s party…Yes, you guessed it a Superhero Party. Wow that was a mouthful. A superhero party is always a fun idea because it is so colorful and vibrant and there are SO SO SO many good ideas to put to use. And there is a dash of sparkly too, think gold capes or glittery masks or even sequined waist bands. It is magic I tell you! My friend Gina did such an AMAZING job with this party. I mean she covered all those boxes and stuck alllllll those white sticker “windows” on. I know how much work this was….BUT it is always worth it, isn’t it? She got her hubby to make this cute telephone cubicle. Outsourcing tasks is a streak of genius when it comes to party planning. I always try and outsource at least one task to my hubby. You’ve got to get them involved you know! The bam, pow, boom cake. Yes, I know, the superhero looks a little wired here but maybe she just had a little too much candy? So these cupcakes were piped using a French tip/nozzle. These little lollipops were dressed up as superheroes…loved the flared up capes – these must be the coolest looking lollipops in town. Kabooooom. Popcorn wrapped up in comic paper. It is the cutest, most edible shield ever, with marshmallows, grapes and strawberries with a sweet dip in the middle. And here we have Kryptonite Krispies….coming up with these names is always fun. Brainwork we luff you. Super pop anyone?? Coconut Ice (http://www.justeasyrecipes.co.za/2012/07/11/coconut-ice/) disguised as cosmic blocks. More super power shields! Biscuits + frosting + cherries. And here we have layers of jello and custard…and the name fits perfectly – Instant Energy. LOTS of it. And yes, my superhero friend DID in fact sew each child a superhero cape. Because that is what superhero mommies do. They just whip out their sewing machine and put these together like 1-2-3. Remember what I mentioned earlier about outsourcing? Yes! Booom! OUTSOURCE. Find a friend that does have a sewing machine and outsource all that fun to her. Pay her in instant energy, cosmic blocks, power pops and Kryptonite Crispies (http://www.justeasyrecipes.co.za/2012/10/04/rice-krispy-treats/). Zap, bam, boom straws (https://www.etsy.com/listing/232580072/girl-superhero-printable-party-set?ref=shop_home_active_2&ga_search_query=superhero)! And in case there wasn’t enough energy to go around….try some flash, pop, flash drinks And because my friend didn’t have enough to do, she also cut out little lightning bolts to attach to those lollipop capes you saw earlier. …And managed to make these masks too. I know, you can sigh with me.*Cue Superhero Music* YOU can do this party to! It just requires planning – you can make a lot of these items way before the actual party.
