This past weekend we celebrated my son's 6th birthday super hero style! We kept it simple by inviting just a few friends, but I did have a little fun with the party planning and details.
My son is all about super hero's so it was the natural choice for him. For inspiration and ideas I went straight to Pinterest. Just search 'super hero party' and you'll see what I mean. Boy, do I love that place!
I also went to Etsy and found some cute printables at Cocoa Mint for making the invitations and printing papers for decorations.
I also used these free printables, but now I can't find where I downloaded them. sorry! If you want them and can't find them either, let me know, I'm sure I could send them to you.
Here are a couple of the free ones on the cake:
For the cake, one of my older son's and I tried using fondant for the first time, so our logo didn't turn out the best, but the birthday boy loved it!
I also found these cute little baskets that I filled with 'Super Snacks'. The kids loved them!
And who doesn't love some oreo truffle pops?!?!!?!
For fun, I found this great idea for an easy scavenger hunt, which the kids loved.
My son helped out alot on this game, which I really appreciated! Each clue had a superhero there to be collected.....
And they loved finding the rest of the frozen super hero's at the end....
Although the birthday boy got to keep all the super hero's, there was plenty for all the kids to play with and then they also got their goody bags too....no one seemed unhappy, so I guess it worked!
And happy super hero's too....
The best part for me though was while I was setting up and getting the cake done, Austin kept coming over to me and hugging me, saying 'I'm happy' and 'I love you Mom!'.
Now what's better than that? I say, not much.
