Party Recap

“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” might be a box office hit, but Caroline’s superhero themed celebration was a real showstopper! Going against the “Frozen” trend, the Batman-loving birthday girl went a rather untraditional route for a girl—including the desire to have blue as the main color. Mom, however, wanted to keep it non-commercial and unisex, so we threw in purple and yellow to make it as gender-neutral as possible. Everything from the comic inspired invitations to the personalized capes, Superman font banners to the caped crusader cake pops were custom created—and easy for anyone with a computer, a little extra time, and most important for a busy mom-- energy to do. My own son was the “fit model” for the toddler sized telephone booth made from an Ikea bed box. The sweets buffet backdrop, made from a big-screen tv box, was hand-painted to match the invite. Cute child-centric hero graphics were used to create centerpieces, walkway décor, accents on all signage, and the cake topper. Upon arrival, kids were all given personalized capes, though some had already gotten into the spirit and come dressed in costumes. To keep the little heroes busy, they decorated their own masks, tested their X-ray vision with a touch & feel game, and leapt tall buildings in a single bound at the photo station. Some of the kids wanted to keep their identities a secret (natch). The phone booth even managed to survive the 20 sugared up toddlers-- a super power in itself.

    Hi Lisette! I used a big screen tv box. Folded it in 2 spots to make the back and sides, then used two smaller pieces for the roof and door. They were secured with red duct tape. I used a box cutter to cut the windows and spray painted the whole thing red.. For the "phone" inside, I used a wrapping paper tube affixed to a small box, both of which I had spray painted silver before gluing to the back wall. I have a die-cutter that I used to cut the "TELEPHONE" letters and glued to a piece of poster board I had cut to size. It actually held up thru 20 toddlers running around with it!
