Okay, so I'm hired to do a party and I immediately start to shrink into a small girl, in a blue dress, who just drank some mystical juju when I find out that the birthday boy wants a Superman themed party - and you know, I HATE CHARACTER THEME PARTIES. . (Why God, Why????? Didn't I just convince my own child it wasn't necessary to buy a whole kit 'n kaboodle of Princess Tiana party products? Why now do I have to succumb to the dreaded character themed birthday party AGAIN!!!!)....and scene.
Well, having to do another character party gave me another challenge. How can I take this theme and make it into something not so....themey. I am currently doing that with my daughter's party. I designed a Tianna-like princess for her invitations, purchased a limited amount of character products and kept within the color scheme for the rest of the party. If I did that for her, I can certainly do it for another child. So, I searched online, and came up an inspiration board for his party!
Happy Birthday Banner, Cake & Bubbles; balloons; Super Hero Capes; Star Bunting; Popcorn; Stars; Lollipop Bouquets; Cape Craft; Superman Logo; Cake Box Favors
I always get excited once my inspiration boards are completed. It makes me want to get to workin'! So, I might fuss and grumble at the concept of a character party, but I know that I can still create a unique party for a special birthday boy or girl!
