My boy is crazy about Super Heroes. He knows all the names, cartoons and toys related to Super Heroes. I knew for sure that one day I would have to produce a super heroes’ party. The only thing that I did not know is this day was so close…
I was planning my twins’ birthday party and the initial idea was to produce a Mermaids and Pirates theme. However, everyday my boy showed me a new Super Heroes Party so I understood that I needed to figure out how to put both themes together. To be honest, I am not a big fan of Super Heroes theme. The fact is the majority of the parties that I saw were pretty similar and I like different and creative themes. One day walking on the street, I saw a Batman Lego with a bath suit on a store front window. In that minute I had this crazy idea: let’s put Batman and the Justice League on the beach! In this beach, all Super Heroes are IN DISGUISE!
Inspired by Batman Lego, we created a Justice League Lego Beach. In this beach, Wonder Woman is a mermaid; Batgirl wears flamingo glasses; Joker has a tattoo and loves to take pictures. All characters were chocolate truffles with their beach clothes’ and accessories.
As the kids arrived on the party, they got amazing Batman and Batgirl masks that my dear mother-in-law helped me to sew. To bring the guests to the theme, two big banners were put in the venue’s entrance. We also had a Quiz with interesting questions about Super Heroes (i.e.:The creators of which Superhero sold their rights to the DC Comics publisher for only $ 130 dollars in 1938 because they thought that this Superhero would never succeed?).
A Lego Beach House was assembled just for the occasion, as well as a Volleyball court for Superman and his friends to play during the party. The traditional ice-cream cart was replaced by a Tattoo cart where children could choose their favorite tattoo and apply during the party. The beautiful design on this cart was inspired by my son’s t-shirt and designed by Maria Palito from Party Mazing.
Meghan, from Elva M Design, was responsible for the party visual identity. As always, she translated everything I dreamed into her designs: the invitation, the party favors tags and the banner over the dessert table.
We also created a special table for the little ones having their meals with M&Ms on ice-creams, special colored refreshments and cute plates.
I also counted with my friend and party decorator Alessandra Cosim. She helped me choose the décor pieces as well as put the dessert table and the photo booth together. She is so detailed oriented that I could not have done any better without her help.
Regarding the photo booths, one of them was a Van cutout and the other one was a scenario with a big float, ice-cream piñata and a Party sign.
To create the beach atmosphere we used a tailor made hug with my twins’ names written over the “sand”. Led light balloons and bubble light balloons were distributed on the venue to light up the party. In this beach, even fishes were super heroes: I sewed felt fishes with Batman masks and caps.
Hope you enjoy the pictures of this magical night when Kids are Just Super Heroes in Disguise!
