Superhero Party

superhero blog post-p001

Superheroes are a big thing in our house and so it is only fitting that I would create a party for one of my boys with that theme!  This party was so fun to plan but even more fun to enjoy, the kids just loved it!  This party was featured on Amy Atlas, here!

When imagining the cake, I new I wanted something bold and graphic, so instead of fondant I was decided to make ombre sugar dots to mimic the vintage dotted comic design from the party package.  I got my inspiration for these sugar dots here .  The diy tutorial on how to make these was so easy to follow and I think the time to make them was well worth it :)  The graphic cutouts that are available in the party package really made this cake pop!

The invitation is made to look like a vintage comic design, it was a great way to let the guests know what was to come.

The amazing shortbread cookies were created by the talented Evon of Cookievonster and they really added a lot of impact to the party table.

The cupcake fondant toppers were so amazing as well.  They were create by Janderyn of earthandsugar.

The cake pops were created by Carmen of Carmen’s Sweet Creations.  She had a great idea to give them a shimmer in order to resemble spandex and I think it looks absolutely perfect!

The polka dot backdrop is fabric I purchased from IKEA, I also used it in the photo booth area, but in red!

Little Ninja Party

My youngest son Karlo, has been into anything and everything ninja for the past few years, so last year I created a sweet little party to honor his wishes.  I am anxiously waiting to share pictures of the this years superhero party, but waiting for a feature on Amy Atlas Events before I show you all the fabulous details!  So here is Karlo’s 3rd birthday ninja party!


One of the main design elements was the ‘rising sun’ and it was used for the cupcake toppers and the birthday banner.


I had so much fun making the rice krispy sushi!  It was beyond easy, so yummy and even more…it was so pretty!


I used the individually wrapped krispy treats and then cut them out with a sharp knife and circular cookie cutter.  If the cookie cutter or knife got too sticky, I just smeared some butter what I was cutting with and all is well.  Fruit roll ups are used for the seaweed and the red “roe” are sprinkles, but they look very realistic!


I found that the red Swedish fish looked and worked best for the sashimi!

I bought the cake from Safeway :)  then I used the cake bunting and graphic cutout to make it look custom, so simple and cute!


Straw flags were used to decorate the fruit and veggies, making them more enticing for those little fingers!

I hope a little ninja master will enjoy this party theme as much as my little Karlo did!

My older son is now into TMNT, for those who don’t know the acronym, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and his birthday is fast approaching.  Party planning is in full swing for that theme!
