Super Hero Party

The day could have not been any better. Bailey was so happy and that is truly what most matters to me.

Okay, now on to the party details!
I began planning this party by using a logo that was placed on everything from the outer envelop label to the backdrop of the trinket/candy buffet. This is always an easy way to make sure your party flows together. So I decided on the Batman, Spiderman & Baileyman(ie:Superman) symbols as my logo.
Here is the outside envelop for the invitation. Inner portion here
The Backdrop for the Candy/Trinket Buffet. I used 3 big pieces of styrofoam(Micheal's). Hot glued them together. Bought glittered card stock paper in Red Blue and Yellow and printed out Large size symbols and placed in each square. The center square was a decoupage #5(5 found at paper source) with a smaller version of the logo.
This was also a papermache # 5 and Round Container found at Hobby Lobby. I decoupage these with a smaller version of the logo.

Cones made with the same printed logo
I also made popcorn boxes with slightly larger version of the logo.
When the Kids arrived, they were greeted with a Do-it-yourself Superhero kit. As you recall in a previous post, the kits were made by Sew Plain Jane. The kids loved this activity and wore their capes the entire party.
Then to complete their super hero look, they were off to face painting. Amy Tam is the fastest, greatest, nicest face painter I have ever encountered. She not only did 25 kids, but she did several adults, and some kids came back for seconds. Seriously, if you reside in the Baltimore/DC area you have to use her.
Then the kids went on to play in the Huge Bounce house, ball pit and amused themselves with several games. The location of the party took place at Confetti's Event Center in Towson, Maryland. They supplied all tables, chairs, the Moon bounce, car ball pit, Carnaval games, balloons, Super Hero costumes and Super Hero cut out. Some party decor. Food Table with a framed(Ikea) picture of Bailey and Spider man taken at Universal Studios. I also had smaller pictures with several other superhero's on the table. Didn't get any shots of those.
Kids table with the decoupage Bailey Sign. Truly inspired by Jamie Bryant's of Setting the Mood's Wonder Woman party.
Table setting. I continued the logo on to the water bottles and the napkin wraps. This wouldn't have been a party without Spiderman and Batman
Trinket/Candy Favor Buffet. The kids and parents went wild over this.
Most of the Trinkets were purchased at the Dollar Tree. They have an amazing superhero collection. I found Superman glow in the dark rings at Shindgz, and Batman items from the dollar section of Target and also ordered some super hero items from Oriental trading.
Bags with the logo and thank you on round labels brought from paper source. Bags purchased at Michael'sI found the perfect buckets for the candy from the dollar section at Target. Just in time for the Party. The Batman Logo went perfect!
No Shortage of Super Hero's

I got Bailey's cape, eye mask and gloves from Chasing Fireflies.
We both fell in love with it.
Happy Birthday Banner from ShindgzCake from Cakes Plus in Laurel Maryland. They never fail me.
Bailey had the most amazing day and I pray that all of his dreams come true!

Esty Love

As you may or may not be aware(lol), I'm having a super hero party for my son in one week. It has been so fun over the last couple of weeks preparing for this party. A real labor of love and I'm so excited to share all of the party details with you. But in the meantime, I want to share with you some of my Esty finds.
I ran across Sew Plain Jane in my search for a decorate your own cape kit. I'm a crafty person, but sewing is not my thing. Jane has the sweetest personality and the most amazing capes with a fast turnaround. I ordered on Sunday and received them on Thursday. They were perfectly sewed and not a wrinkle in site. The kids are going to love decorating their own capes. Below are just a couple of pictures of the cape kit. Check out her site here to see all of the designs.

Though I didn't use the next two vendors, their feed back from other users has been very positive. If I would have found them earlier, they would have defiantly been incorporated into Bailey's Party.
First up is Favor Cakes. I think this is just a great idea for favors and will make any dessert table pop. You have to check it out. It's several themes available and they will also do custom orders. Check out Favor Cakes here.

Last but certainly no least is Not Betty Cookies. They boast to use only the highest quality ingredients, including special bakery emulsions that make my cookies extra special, extra delicious. Each cookie will come individually wrapped in a clear cellophane bag with coordinating ribbon. You can choose from Vanilla, Vanilla/Almond, Buttery Sweet Dough or Lemon sugar cookies. The price is great!. Check Not Betty Cookies here
