I started the party theme with a superfun superhero invite (gotta love photoshop)
My first attempt at fondant. Not too shabby ... I don't think I'd sell any cakes, but
James liked it - and that's what counts.
Superhero Lollipops - a thank you for the superheros for their hard work
Superhero Sugar Cookies
Table Settings (kids got to take home the cup + silly straw)
Whats a party without Hot Tamales?
Superhero Capes + Masks
The kids had to earn their cape and mask by completing super-special
They had to run like the Flash...
Leap over tall buildings like Superman...
Swing on a web and climb the side of a building like Spiderman...
And Fly like Superman.
And what superhero party would not be complete without a true villan who appeared
to try to steal away the birthday boy's fun?
Thus The Riddler made an appearance.
(Thanks to a good friend, a bottle of orange hairspray, a bit of research on You Tube, and a
bribe of a snazzy bottle of bourbon.)
The Riddler told all sorts of silly riddles - that the kids didn't understand - but laughed at
Then they were tasked with their superhero training (to be able
to fight the villan and all.)
James was first to 'fly.'
And climb the side of a building.
And leap/crush small buildings.
Anna followed suit.
Such a prissy girl when she runs!
And even the littlest superheros got in on the action...
Working hard to jump over those buildings.
After donning their superhero cape - the kids had to then dispose of the kryptonite
that the Riddler threw at them (following a barrage of more corny riddles.) And to do so they needed
to wear special kryptonite-proof gloves and use special kryptonite-disposing tongs.
It was very hard work.
And after that training - they all received their superhero masks - and special
web slingers (silly string) that they would use to capture the Riddler, should he make another appearance.
Which he did - and was appropriately covered in Spider webs.
Until Daddy came and handcuffed the Riddler - and led him off to the appropriate authorities.
But not before posing for a final shot...
Superhero James Defeats The Riddler!
Then it was time to eat - Wonder Dogs, Veggie Shooters, Fruit Cups, and Energy Boosting Chips,
followed by birthday cake and cookies.
And a rousing 'Happy Birthday' to our little superhero.
Happy Birthday my sweet Superhero James!
You truly make my life more fantastic and silly than I ever thought possible!
Note - many of the party ideas came from One Charming Party's superhero party. Tons of great ideas - that made for a truly Super party!
