Super Hero Girl Party!
Two year old Seylah and three years old Emma have unspeakable powers. It is said that they are capable of subduing any human being just by the batting of their eyelashes and a simple smile!
I was inspired by these ideas on Catch My Party for a girls super hero party which helped me make my super hero party come true. This was the perfect party theme for my eldest Emma who turned 3! She likes watching the hulk, and she likes to go around the house saying “super baby” or super girl” so it was the perfect match for her. The best part it is it was easy and fast to put it all together. I was able to plan and decorate this party in about a week.
Most of my decorations I bought at Dollar Tree which was a total score. Even the bathing suits for the super hero costumes came from there.
I wanted the cape and mask to be girlie ideas, so instead of being the typical bold colors for super heros, I added a touch of flowers. I used whatever scrap of fabric I could find in my fabric bin to pull it all together. A little sewing, some cheap finds, mixing and matching their clothes and voila I came up with this…
Now time for the party!
The backdrop was really fun and easy to make. I used was a roll of flower wrapping paper and a black table covers from dollar tree. The silhouette of the city really turned out well and was just perfect for the party.
The lollipops were one of the most consuming things I did. Gosh I wanted it to be over! I also bought these at the dollar store. I used scrapbook paper for the cape and cut a little mask drew little black eyes on them and mod podged that bad boy! For the mask and signs I used word document and scrapbook paper to also use scrapbook paper. There was lots of cutting, that’s for sure but it is all worth it when you are on a tight budget! I did the cake myself too. It was a bit challenging because it was my first time working with fondant, but I think came out well!
For the party favors, I made my famous delicious chocolate chips oatmeal cookies and put them in a zip block bag. I used scrapbook paper to cover the top with staples and put “thank you for coming” in a comic font, print it out and cut it one by one. Time consuming but worth it. I also made the birthday banner with scrapbook paper and to hold them together a pink ribbon. I wanted to make it girlie so I used lots of different flower patterns.

-The highlight of the party-
We decided to tell the kids invited to wear a super hero costume. It was great that everyone was in costume!I was not expecting this, but my sister bought super hero shirts for the adults! And this was a day to remember, the cutest thing was seeing my parents join the fun!
The best was seeing my girls enjoy themselves and spending time with the family! This was their first time celebrating their birthday with my family, and is not gonna be the last!
Overall I spent $40 on the decorations! Not bad hey!? Not sure which one was more successful the party decorations or my budget! LOL
What I recommend if you’re going to do a hero party, is to have some cool games for the kids, all my focus was on decorating that I neglected the games. And of course do it with enough time, unlike me! There are sooooo many ideas on pinterest for this theme is crazy, so don’t get overwhelm choose what you like and create a mood board like I did. Believe me it helps to have all your ideas in one paper!
Most of the ideas I used you can also find them on pinterest on my “party ideas” board.
