Superhero Party Decor Ideas

My oldest daughter turned 16 last month!  I’ve been dreaming in my head about the fabulous party that I would throw for her!  There would be glitter…soooo much glitter!!

To get the ball rolling, I created a pinterest board and shared the link with her so that we could collaborate and make it a special day that she would remember forever and ever.  And then the comments rolled in from her account to mine:  “Nope.”  “Not gonna happen”.  “Too girlie”.  Hurtful.  Just hurtful.  Ha Ha.  Actually – I wasn’t that surprised.  She’s not much for the frills and the fancy…so I did what I should have started with and asked her what she’d like to do.

It just so happened that the new Captain America: Civil War movie was hitting theaters that very weekend, and she really wanted to see it.  We had our theme.

Instead of SWEET 16 we were going to go SUPER 16!!  I started designing the invitations right away and used a pretty standard Comic Book layout design – but used muted (more girly) colors to give it a vintage feel.  She loved it and we were in business!

I LOVE these Gold Party Fans from My Mind’s Eye Fancy Collection.  I’ve used them for my Christmas Party, my Ice Cream Party and  now this Superhero Party.  They’re just the best thing to have in you Party Decor arsenal.  Because I want to thank you loyal readers for being so patient while I was away – I’m offering a discount today in the shop on these versatile gold fans!  CLICK HERE to shop.

The gold glitter stars are just glitter paper cut using my Silhouette Cameo and hung with fishing line.

The comic book fans were made using old comic books.  I bought a bundle of them for $15 on Amazon and used the tutorial found HERE to create them.  Here is a closer look:

This SUPER bunting was also made using the pages from the comic books that I ordered on Amazon and I printed the lettering onto mailing labels using my laser jet printer, and then foiled them using my laminator and heat sensitive foil. (Whew!  That’s a lot of links!  I think this will require a tutorial! I’m on it!)

For the drinks I chose to do milk and punch to go well with the cake and cookies. I created the signs in Photoshop, and cut them out using my Silhouette Cameo – and then gold foiled them using the same process as the SUPER bunting.  For the sticks, I used skewers topped with a wooden bead that I had dipped into glue and then glitter – just to pretty it up a little. (I TOLD you there would be some glitter!!)

I thought it would be fun to use these Superhero Action Figures to hold buffet cards – but in their colorful natural state, they came off a bit cheesy.  So I grabbed my trusty gold spray paint and made them fit in!  They were so cute – she is currently using them in her bedroom (which is black and gold) and they look darling!  (I used the playskool brand because their feet were so big – they weren’t likely to tip over easily – but there were several other options to choose from if this look is too juvenile!)  Here is a peek of one a little closer:

The polka dot milk glasses were from Target  – and I took these pictures before they were filled, but I used white gatorade to fill the “punch” and milk to fill the “mighty milk”.

Underneath the glasses, I put more of the comic book pages – just to break up the whiteness of the buffet top.  I also spread some Giant Gold Confetti onto the table to give it some texture.

Superhero Cake - Comic Book Superhero Themed Birthday Party Ideas - purdueavenue.com

I love to bake – and I take pride in trying be a DIY girl – but I knew what I wanted this cake to be – and I knew my limits!  So I called up my sweet friend, Tawnna, from Happy Baking AZ and ordered this cute cake and 3 dozen of these darling cookies from her.  Best decision I’ve ever made.  This cake was the focal point of the buffet & it needed to look good!

(On a side note – it also TASTED incredible! We ordered the Salted Caramel Cake for the bottom layer and the Citrus cake with Raspberry Buttercream filling for the top – YUM!)

Superhero Cookies Comic Book Superhero Themed Birthday Party Ideas - purdueavenue.com

I used these fluted gold chargers, topped with a white doily, as the serving platters for the cookies.

Once they have 5 in a row  – they yell BINGO!  And then they get to pick a prize from the prize bowl!  There were enough prizes for everyone to get BINGO – so you just continue play until everyone has had a chance to choose their prize.  We kept the prizes to things under $1. Some prize ideas include:

nail polish

ice cream flavored lip gloss

jump rope

fingernail stickers

bubbles

 

We also played pin the scoop on the ice cream cone.  I just enlarged the cone, scoops and cherries from our Party Invitations to fit on a 12×12 sheet of paper.

Each girl got their own color of scoop so that we could see who got the closest to win the prize!  Of course, we had 2 cherries for the 2 birthday girls to stick on the top!

Ice Cream Party Tablescape

 

Silly Silly Me!!  I planned on having a party recap for today’s post – and I stewed and fretted about sticking so much information into one eternally long post.  { Thus, the late hour of my post }  I still wanted to show you the games we played, the food we ate, the cute table that we ate them on – so I’ll have to continue the posts into next week as well.  This really was a GREAT party!  {I guess this is what happen when you have a mother that goes overboard X 2!!}  So today – I’ll post about the DARLING tablescape!

Here’s a view from the top:Ice Cream Party Table Setting - purdueavenue.com

Chalkboard Place Mat

Chalkboard Place Mats

 

Love those adorable chalkboard placemats?  Wanna know how easy they are to make??  It’s just black card stock, a chalk pen and a circle punch!

Here’s what you’ll need to make them:

Black Textured Card Stock

Chalk Marker

1.5″ Circle Paper Punch (or some scissors)

How to Make:

Step 1: Punch the corners using the circle punch (or find something round, trace onto the paper, then cut out with scissors)

Step 2: Using the chalk pen, draw a border about 1/2″ inside the paper.  If you’re not comfortable freehanding it – just use a ruler for the edges and something round for the ticket stub part.

DONE!  See?  I told you it was easy!

Next week  I’ll show off the decorations, activities & food.  You’re gonna love it!!

Chalkboard Pennant and Ribbon Banner Tutorials

 

As promised in the Ice Cream Party Invitation Tutorial post, here is the tutorial on making these darling banners.  I made 2 – one is a ribbon banner that hung over the Ice Cream Sundae Creation Station:

DSC_1552

 

And the second was a pennant banner with a ribbon cut bottom.  {You could also make it the standard triangle shape pennant banner following the tutorial HERE}

DSC_1532

 

The trick here is the fabric.  I really wanted a chalkboard pennant banner, and had planned to spray regular canvas with chalkboard paint.  Until 1 sleepless night at about 2am – I had a AHA! moment.  I decided to get out of bed and see if there was such a thing as black canvas already!!  There was!  Happy Me.  {I have since learned that there is an actual chalkboard fabric…it is smooth and looks leathery…so if you like the textured look, go with the canvas.}

I’ll start with the pennant banner…I had 5 pennants on my banner, each pennant was 10″ W x 14″ L.  You can make yours with more or less – just adjust your fabric and ribbon accordingly.  If you are doing more – I would adjust the pennant size to 7″ W x 10″ L unless you have a REALLY big room to hang it in and LOTS of ribbon!

What you will need:

1 yard of Black Canvas – you want the heavy weight – I got the 14 oz.  I bought mine on fabric.com – HERE IS THE LINK

4 yards of Ribbon – I used this DARLING Black & Cream 1/5″ wide May Art Ribbon

Sewing Machine OR Hot Glue Gun for a No Sew option.

What to do:

Cutting out this banner was even easier than the pennants!!

1. I like to fold the fabric in half lengthwise, and then in half again.  That will give me more pennants per cut! This fabric is heavy – so make sure that you have a sharp blade on your cutter – otherwise – you can only fold it over once (or use scissors)

2. Take a minute to smooth out the fabric – make sure everything is lining up well and that you don’t have any folds hiding in there.

3. Line up the length of your fabric along a guide on your cutting mat to ensure that your fabric is straight and cut the end 1″ off – to make sure everything is square.

Trim-ends

**make sure to have firm pressure on the ruler while using a rotary cutter – like I said – it’s thick and takes some muscle to cut through!!

4. Pull the fabric to the edge of your cutting mat – and move your ruler to 10″

Cut-to-10-inches-wide

5. Repeat this process until you have the number of pennants needed.  (Mine cut 4 pennants per cut because of the way I folded it)

6. Smooth each cut and Trim 1/4″ off of the top and bottom to cut off the folds making the separate pennants.

Cut-the-folded-ends

7. Fold each pennant in half lengthwise and cut at an angle {personal preference which angle} starting from the folded edge and ending on the outer edges. {The folded edges should be where the arrows are in the photo.}

Angled-Cut

 

Cut-folded-fabric-at-an-angle

 

**Here is a picture of what each angle looks like on the finished pennant – to help you choose…}

cut-comparison

8. Iron the pennants and spray the 3 edges with a clear acrylic sealer in matte finish.  You can also use no fray spray 0r paint on matte mod podge to the edges (it’s just more time consuming)

{if you don’t want to mess with the sealer you can always hem the edges!!}

9. Once you have all of the pennants cut and ironed – it’s time to sew/hot glue them to the ribbon.  This ribbon makes it especially easy because the horizontal lines make it so easy to sew the pennants on straight!

***NOTE***I think that attaching the pennants to the ribbon with velcro dots would be even better – because then you can add/remove the number of pennants you need to ‘say what you need to say’!  Just a thought…

 

I hope that you’ve enjoyed the tutorial.  I have a few tips for writing on them as well:

1. MAKE SURE TO PRIME THE FABRIC FIRST!! I can’t stress how important this is. Just take a piece of chalk lay it sideways and rub it all over the pennants.  Then wipe it off.  It will give it a smoky look that looks great, too!

2. Using small chalk like THIS ONE makes it easier to control the chalk.  I LOVE THIS CHALK PENCIL!!

 

writing-on-the-pennants

If you don’t feel like you have the greatest ability to free hand…there is a really easy way to transfer printed text to the pennants:

1. print out what you want to write on the pennants.  If it’s individual letters, it helps to cut around them so you can center them better.

2. Rub chalk on the back side of the printed image/text

3. Center it on the pennant.  Then, using a ball point pen (I like to use red so I can see where I’ve been) trace around the outer edges of the image/text.

4. This will transfer the chalk onto the pennant and you can just fill it in (as seen above)

 

To make the ribbon pennant – it’s basically the same steps – except:

1. instead of cutting the width to 10″ – cut it to the length you want.

2. Still cut the v-notches as shown above – but make sure to notch both ends!!

3. Sew/Glue the ribbon onto the edges of the “writable” area.  Leave about 8 inches on each side of the ribbon for the v-notched ends to “flow” (see the picture at the top of the post to see where I put the ribbon)

4. If your fabric isn’t stiff enough – you can slide some wire in to help give it the “folded back” ribbon look.

 

Okay – the novel is over!  I hope that you make one – they’re SO much fun!!  Friday I will post more pics from the party with the party games!

His & Hers Soiree: The Ruffled Table Skirt Tutorial

 

The-Table

I know what it is that you’re all just praying I put up a tutorial for… the VERY most fabulous thing about the table.

The Table Skirt

The-Ruffled-Table-Skirt

Talk about WOW FACTOR!  It’s absolutely stunning!  And the best part is – you can use it under any table cloth for a totally different look.

The second best part?  You can make this with pretty basic sewing skills…or no sewing skills at all!!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Ruffled Bed Skirt

{Mine was ivory colored – it’s also available in white}

MultiRuffle-Ivory-15inch-Drop-Bedskirt-P14066287A good pair of fabric scissors.  I love MINE!

LOTS of pins

Sewing Machine {or a hot glue gun for a no-sew option}

Here’s How You Make It:

Step 1: Lay the first skirt over the table you are fitting it to.  {Ha Ha – you are making your table a skirt after all – it has to be tried on and fitted!!}

Step 2: Arrange it so that the ruffles fall evenly on the 3 ruffled sides

spread-it-out-on-the-table

Step 3: Secure the “non ruffled” edge to the table with some tape.  This fabric is slick – and you don’t want it sliding around!!

Secure-in-place

Step 4: Take the second bed skirt into a large room and spread it out on the floor.

Step 5: Cut the ruffled part of the skirt OFF of the center all the way around like this:

cut-ruffle-off

Step 6: Take the ruffled edges to the table and start pinning this ruffle above the existing ruffled skirt just below the edge of the table.

*After taking this picture – I realized it was better to pin one corner first and the pin my way to the next corner, and then move up the long sides.

You should have excess ruffle that you can wrap around the front part the has no ruffle.

Pin-above-layer

**Note: to do this – I folded over the extra fabric from the cut ruffled section, then folded it again to give it a nice finished edge. **

start-pinning

Step 7: Go back and add A LOT MORE PINS!!  This is slick fabric – and it’s hard to sew without it REALLY pinned well!!

Lots-and-Lots-of-Pins

Step 8: Go around and make sure everything looks good – tuck and pin where needed – the corners might need some creative pinning!

Step 9: Once it looks good hanging on the table and you have LOTS of pins…you can take it to the sewing machine.

If you aren’t a seamstress – a hot glue gun would do great!

Just unpin a short section at a time and run a bead of glue between the fabrics, press closed and then move on.

Step 10: Throw it onto your table, throw a cute table cloth on top and step back and admire your work!

Ruffled-Table-Skirt

I wanted to add this ruffled table skirt to the giveaway – but since it’s so specific to what shape and size your table {#is#} – I can’t :0(

But I hope that you’ll make one!  Pin it now so you don’t forget ;0)

His & Hers Soiree: Food, Glorious Food

 

Food presentation is a HUGE part of the “enjoying eating it” experience!

Randi has an amazing ability to present food…so everything looks and tastes amazing!

Here are a few tricks to follow – and you’ll soon have a few tricks up your sleeve!

Let’s start with the Cupcakes:

Mustache-toppers

The first trick is to use a great big tip when piping your frosting like THESE

You’ll get a professional look, even if your piping bag is a ziploc baggie. {Don’t knock it til’ you try it!}

Don’t forget to top it with a sprinkle of Gold Edible Glitter
.

The cupcake liners were purchased at home goods – but you can find similar ones HERE
– or make your own with this template:

Scalloped-cupcake-liner-template

{Click on the image to download the template}

If you have an electronic cutter like the Silhouette, then you can zip them out on your striped paper looking FABULOUS!

You can also cut them with scissors and then use a scalloped edged scissor at the top.

For the Mustache Toppers: Just cut them out from our TEMPLATE and glue them to a flat topped toothpick.

I’ve also made a TEMPLATE for the Happy Birthday Pennants…just cause I like ya so much!

Happy-Birthday-cupcakes

 

The pennants were attached to wooden skewers {cut in half} and topped with a glittered wooden ball on top. (the balls can be found in the craft stores by the wooden dowels)

 Click HERE for a tutorial on making the glitter ball sticks. (just scroll all the way down)

The Drinks

The decision for how to make this drink was made because she had a color that she wanted it to be!  Genius!

So she found a juice that was the right color and built the drink from there.

Step-1

Step-2

Step-3

What’s great about this drink is that it can be a formula for any party drink

1. choose a color them – pink for example

2. add coordinating frozen fruit – raspberry

3. fill 1/2 with juice that matches the color palette

4. fill remainder of the glass with gingerale.

Done!

We also made darling

Buffet Signs

to go in front of the different goodies on the table.

Here is the one we made for the drink:

Drink-Me

It says “Drink Me, I’m just peachy”

You can download the buffet sign template HERE.

I’ve left the template blank so that you can add in whatever you’re serving…

Like the sign for the cupcakes:

Let-them-eat-cake

It says: “Let Them Eat Cake, Lots of It”  Hee Hee.

 {Let’s just say it was midnight and we were getting silly with our sign making.}

and for the

Chocolates

Lots-of-chocolates-for-me-to-eat

The sign says “Lots of Chocolates for Me to Eat”

chocolate-mustache's

You can get the mustache chocolate mold HERE

It really is as simple as:

1. Place the sticks in the mold

2. Pour in your melted chocolate

3. Wait for the chocolate to set (refrigerator works great to speed this along}

4. Pop the chocolate pops out of the mold

To keep the pops standing upright she filled a trophy cup with rice…GENIUS!

 

chocolate-crowns

Follow the same steps for the Crown Molds
except:

Before you pour in the white chocolate – sprinkle some Edible Gold Glitter
into the mold.  Then you’ll have sparkly crowns ;0)

The truffles are just lindt truffles, unwrapped with a sprinkling of Edible Gold Glitter
…so easy!  So smart!

chocolate-ballsSound like a lot of work?  You could save yourself the trouble by winning our {#PARTY IN A BOX#}!

Good Luck!
