Batman Birthday Party

When boys are 9 years old they know what they want to do and play during their birthday parties. This year my son Daniel wanted to be and play like his favorite super hero: Batman.

The hero-adventure started with me going out to two different parts of the city searching for Batman party supplies. But I found NADA! So I had to put my favorite costume on: DIY Mom!
The only things I finally bought were plain cups and plates, the balloons where a gift from my local toy store! and with the help of Pinterest I got a lot of practical ideas.

To decorate the cups I printed the Batman logo that I found on the blog The Mathews Family Happenings on Avery's sticker project paper, pasted on the cups and with a white marker I wrote the name of each guest. For the Batman masks I used {this} template and I put crayons on the table so the boys could decorate them as well as Batman coloring pages.

My biggest project for this party was the Gothic City background witch I made inspired by the blogger Mom and the Blonds. I made my using cardboard boxes that I collected at work. I painted some in blue for the sky and the rest in black after I cut out the building shapes. For the yellow windows I printed out yellow squares in the Avery sticker project paper and pasted them on the black painted cardboard. We used the Gothic background for a fun photo-shoot.

The Super hero food for this party was hamburgers and my son´s favorite birthday cake: Skillingsboller Kake; {here} you can read more about this special cake.

I also made Super hero Popcorn holders using a very funny comic page that I found in Papergreat. I printed the page in black and white, rolled it and secured it with tape. The boys loved this idea and I am sure I am going to used it again. Funny enough, after eating all the popcorn they all tried to read the content of the page.

Wow! It was a really fun party and there is only one week for the next one!
Which Super Hero is going to help me this time?
