William turns 4 in this fantastic superhero-themed birthday party! It was put together by party planner Mel Betts of Confetti Party Creations located in Sydney, Australia.

For the dessert table, Mel used a primary color palette along with printables from my shop to highlight the out-of-this-world treats and drinks. I love the skyline backdrop – it was created out of a sheet of black backerboard.

These treats are fit for only superheroes to eat – Kapow Cupcakes, Incredible Crackles, Kryptonite Jelly and Super Star Cookies! All labeled nicely with superhero printable buffet cards. (Mel added her own text using a label maker – a smart idea!)

The table is set up perfectly for pint-sized crime fighters. The centerpiece on the table is a skyline that matches the backdrop on the candy buffet.

How clever is this! The superhero skyline centerpiece is made from simple shapes and action figures. It was a big hit with the kids!

Each table setting was set with superhero water bottle labels and bundles of utensils tied with party circles.

Capes for all the partygoers – featuring Superman, Batman, Spiderman and the Incredibles!

A portion of William’s invitation was framed to use as a decoration, and labeled take-out favor boxes with party circles for all of the little ones to take home.

Thank you so much for sharing William’s party, Mel! : )

    The capes are so nice, and I like how you hung them up. Did you make these or buy them? I'd love a tip on this as I'd like to do this for my son's birthday.
