I thought my girly girl would always want princess parties, but for her first time choosing her party theme, she decided on superheroes. MOMMY WAS WRONG! In addition to the initial shock, my hesitation grew when I realized there were no PJ Masks toys or decorations. Not even at the Disney Store! Therefore, I would have to make a lot of the decorations on my own. Luckily, I am beginning to enjoy crafts. Here is how the party turned out!
I also like to showcase the invitation and a thank you note on the welcome table. I created both images on PicMonkey. I'm very pleased with how they look. In my opinion, they look as good as the invitations you can find on Etsy. Sure it takes a little more time to design it, but every little bit helps when you are trying to save money.
Lastly, I put the favors on the table as well. I found an easy tutorial for PJ Masks at Simply Real Moms, and made enough for all the kids (and the fun adults!) I loved how all the kids were excited to turn into their favorite PJ Masks character. I also made cake pops in the party color scheme. Everyone loves cake pops! Kids and adults. If you want to make your party guests happy, then make them cake pops. I also had books and superhero stickers I found on Amazon.
For the dining room, I continued with the color scheme (blue, red, and green). We used streamers and balloons for the ceiling and then created a nightscape for the dessert table. To get this look, I used a trifold foam posterboard, shoeboxes, and the white electrical tape. The shoe boxes were great because they also served as cupcake holders!
Speaking of cupcake holders, I purchased cupcake boxes I found from Walmart to serve the food for the preschoolers. In the past, I have learned that the paper plates can be flimsy, and that creates a huge mess. To avoid that I used small clear cups, placed them in the cupcake boxes, and filled them with our favorite kid-friendly foods. Pretzels, berries, juice, and Chick-Fil-A nuggets. To make it even more special I made a SUPERHERO POWER PACK label for all the boxes.
I found all my plastic table cloths at Walmart and Target. I even covered up our gallery wall with a red sheet.
I love photo booths! And I think they are the newest trend for birthday parties. People love to take pictures and post them on social media, so I like to have an area just for photos. Brandon created an amazing cityscape with foam board from Lowes, and I made photo props on PicMonkey. Brielle and Brandon were great at acting out the characters. The Owlette wings I made for Brielle turned out great! She and her friends took turns sharing the wings. Trust me; you can make them too...the only skill you need is turning on the hot glue gun. Haha!
