Superhero 1st Birthday Party

I can’t take credit for this theme; it was the idea of the parents. If it was up to me my nephew would have had a Farm inspired party because they do in fact have a horse in their back yard. Oh well maybe next year.

Party Favors

One of the things I like to do for party’s is come up with a unique favor for the kids to take home to remember the party. I really try and match the theme of the party as much as possible, so in this case Superhero. This had me thinking for not that long. What can I find that is in-expensive to give kids. My initial idea was to give a coloring book and Crayola crayons (they are cheap at the beginning of the school year) and I really wanted to give a Frisbee decorated like the Capitan America shield.


 I was trying to find full size red Frisbee’s but had a hard time finding some so I went with the next option, Superhero puzzles.  I bought regular size gift bags from Target in red, yellow, green & blue and attached a triangle with an E to the front of the bag, I also attached little Thank You for Celebrating Eli’s Super Day tags. (Printable from Lauren McKinsey).


There were two tables with food. One with hamburgers, hotdogs, buns and condiments (ketchup, mustard, relish) and another with all the fixings (cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, onions) not to mention chips, potato salad and pasta salad).


The kids had lots to do, there were two moon jumps with superhero balls inside and a waterslide that the kids loved. During the middle of the party there was a Batman Piñata and the favor bags were passed out so the kids could have something to store their candy.


The birthday boy’s grandma made lots of cupcakes in blue and yellow and decorated them with cute superhero toppers and a small cake with a 1 for the birthday boy.

CC’s Sweets & Tweets made some superhero cookies made from cutters that I purchased at Williams Sonoma.


My nephew had a custom outfit with a cape, mask, shirt, arm bands that came from a seller on Etsy. It was super cute and the birthday boy loved it!

In my opinion the party was a hit, all the kids had a great time and some didn’t even want to go home!
