Meet Cindy, my newest Blog contributor. She came to me with a little twist on a Super Hero party for her twins and this is how it all came together. I loved everything about this party from the handmade capes and masks to the way she mailed the invites in clear cello envelopes and coordinating stamps!
Check it out..
Post told from Cindy:
It’s always a challenge to come up with a great gender neutral party theme for my boy/girl twins. Luckily last year right after their 4th birthday party they announced (completely independently and without hesitation) that next year they wanted a SUPER HERO party. The party planning process and search for all things “Super” began shortly thereafter.
After months and months of scouring clearance sections, raiding local craft stores, and lots of midnight web surfing, it was finally time to start putting together an action plan for the big day. First stop: invitations. In my opinion, invitations are quite possibly the most important element of any party. They set the tone for the whole event. I was delighted to work with Just a Little Sparkle to create the perfect invitations for our Super 5th Birthday Bash. I also created coordinating custom postage on zazzle.com using graphics from the invitation and mailed them in clear cello envelopes.
My kids are really into playing dress-up, so we knew we’d have to create some super secret identities for our guests. I found a great printable pattern for masks courtesy of Ambrosia Girl; it can be found here and created my own template for capes using a combination of capes from our collection as a guide. The hanging tags were created by Just a Little Sparkle.
Every Superhero needs a sidekick, so we created an “Adopt a Super Pet” station. Signs by Just a Little Sparkle.
Balloons are always a must at our parties. I worked with Signature Celebrations to create some awesome arrangements for our party including a really cool rope and stanchion entry display and centerpieces.
Kid-size tables and chairs and coordinating linens were provided by Themes For Kids Party Rentals
We had an awesome backdrop designed by Party Square
No party is complete without a dessert table. Cake, cupcakes and cookies by Evesa’s Sweets and cupcake tags by Just a Little Sparkle
Last, but certainly not least, we had a surprise visit from three of our favorite Superheroes! All the way from Burbank, Best Party Ever LA was GREAT to work with.
Until next year….
