Party Recap

Liam is absolutely obsessed with super heroes, especially the Marvel characters. So we thought it would be fun to throw a Super Hero Bash! We booked the YMCA since it was June and thought the kids would love splashing around the pool to beat the heat.

We went with bright primary colors – blues, reds and yellows and accented with black and white. We were channeling the old style comics – BAM! POW! KAPOW!

The menu was simple and easy – something little heroes and their parents could agree on, but we dressed it up with themed items to fit into the MARVEL-ous Super Hero theme. All the characters were from MARVEL Comics, Liam’s favorite, and everyone seemed to have a brilliant time! We designed the printables, made the favors and ended up being able to stick with a budget by being a little creative (Cereal boxes make AWESOME skyscrapers!!).

Can’t wait to see what little man picks for his 4th Birthday! Hope you enjoy this party!
