Superhero Birthday Bash!
All you Superhero’s out there you have to see this fabulous party party that Maureen (of talented party duo Anders Ruff) designed for her son. It is absolutely fabulous and so, so, so fun!! Here is just a few things that were at this party….
An array of oh so sweet treats from cake to cookies to cake pops….oh and chocolate covered oreos, candy, cupcakes, and so much more. Not a sweet treat was missing from this party!
Maureen’s inspiration for her son’s birthday party came from Roy Lichtenstein Pop Art. She wanted to create a superhero party not using the commercial superhero’s we see out there and added her own sweet twist. The outcome was this fun and cute “Super Pierson” themed party.
I believe the graphics helped to mold the whole party. Maureen designed a “Super P” graphic that would be repeated throughout the party. She also brought in some of the “icons” of superheros and the traditional big city skyline. Patterns used throughout the party and graphics were representative of old comic books and included halftone patterns, as well as classic “benday dots” (Lichtenstein’s trademark).
My very favorite was the amazing home Photo Booth for the children to have their pictures taken. They made a fake barbell weight (another DIY project) that the kids could pretend to be lifting over their heads. They also had hand-held signs that said “Boom” and “Pow”. The backdrop was the polkadot/benday dot pattern that was repeated on the dessert table. Maureen also had a printed “conversation bubble” on the backdrop the said “Happy 3rd Birthday Super Pierson”. I absolutely love this!!
Another fun idea and a great game for the kids at the party was the Pin the logo on the Super Pierson. Maureen drew the pop art poster of Pierson (yes, folks…drew! TALENT) and had it blown up in black and white – the children played “Pin the logo on Super Pierson” where they would try to stick their own super logo on top of Pierson’s super logo! Fun, right?
Another look into all the fabulous details of this party. Even down to the table where the kids got their own white gable lunch boxes that were embellished with a black/white city skyline label that were printed. The skyline graphic had a callout bubble that said “Happy 3rd Birthday Super Pierson” and “Don’t Forget to eat your Vegetables”. The children had markers at their table so they could color their lunch box. Also attached was a pop art personalized luggage tag with their name that was printed and laminated. AMAZING!!
The favor table had bags of red/blue popcorn, Cookie pops (by The Cookie Jar) and bagged cookies, as well as cake truffle pops that were embellished with a “POP” party flag. The treats were displayed in the white laquer boxes that were lined with black/white polka dot wrapping paper. Cookies were bagged in cello bags and tied with a favor hangtag (from Anders Ruff printable package).
