The Big Birthday Bash

For months now, Alex has been planning his birthday party. He was forever telling us he wanted a “Spiderman, Superman, Batman, Bad Guy” party. So that’s what we did (with a bit of help from Pinterest! Seriously – what did I ever do before that site?).  Unlike the past few years, this year we decided to keep it relatively small. We invited 5 of Alex’s friends that he plays with all the time, unfortunately one couldn’t come, so there were 5 kids total – a perfect size. I did a little decorating – not a whole lot – just streamers, balloons, and a Happy Birthday Banner, made some capes for the kids, and planned a few superhero games.

Super Alex!

The kids loving the streamers

One of the games we played was “Vaporize the Villains”. I printed off a bunch of pics of “bad guys”, taped them around the yard, and the kids took turns “vaporizing” them with silly string. HUGE hit!

Aha! Gotcha!

More bad guys!

This was “Leaping over Tall Buildings”… but turns out these 3 and 4 year olds were not all that robust in their leaping skills….

The cake turned out wonderfully! Fit for a super hero for sure!

Spiderman pinata – lots of fun!

The Super Heroes!!

  1. That looks like so much fun! Nice job, Krista.
    So did all those boys’ parents come too? Or did they just drop off the boys? Do you still have a family party with relatives! That is my struggle…how do you include everyone without losing your mind?!!

  2. So, so cool!!! I adore this party!!! And I really really really adore all the thought and little details. And the capes you made came out awesome… awesome! Did you also make the cake?! Holy cow! Mad props to you girl!

  3. what an awesome party, krista! you did such an amazing job! {…tucking all these great ideas away for the future…;) }

  4. What a fabulous party! You did such a great job organizing it, and I’m glad the weather was perfect. The capes are awesome! Adam wants a super hero cape, but I am not crafty at all, as you know. I love the Vaporize the bad guy game. And the Spiderman pinata– love that you had the kids whack it even though it has the strings to pull!
