Jackson LOVES Super Heroes.
I have always said, that I wanted to do themes for birthdays that Jackson would not choose later in life. I felt like his early birthdays could be themes that I like for him, because he didn't really have an opinion. But this year, I felt like Jackson has some things that he definitely enjoys more than others. And even though, when I ask him what kind of birthday he would want to have- he still doesnt have an opinion- I wanted this birthday to reflect something that he really really enjoyed.
So- Super Heroes it was. I know nothing about Super Heroes. But thankfully the internet is FULL of creative/cute ideas to help celebrate a little boy who loves Super Heroes.
Blue Egg Events made the birthday banner for me. I found the sky line back drop off of Shindigz. Spray painted the letters from Hobby Lobby (never thought through that the letter p would not stand on its own). And ordered the fun polka dot balloons from Amazon. I think the balloons were Jackson's favorite. When he walked out from his nap, he was SO VERY excited!!! His reaction makes all the hard work totally worth it (even though I do love planning their parties!)
Petite Party Studio. I decorated them with things I found at Hobby Lobby, and added the fun paper straws that you can find almost everywhere these days!
|Wonder Dogs= Hot Dogs with fixings|
|Cat Woman Claws= Bugles|
|Chips with Hulk Salsa= Guacamole Salsa from Pinterest|
|Captain America Kabobs= Fruit Kabobs served with fruit dip with sprinkles|
|SuperMan's XRay Vision= Carrots and Ranch Dip|
|Dare Deviled Eggs|
Even though the party was at 3, we had plenty of food! All the food had some type of Super Hero name. My friend, Amy Milner, came over the night before and really helped me get everything together. I have good friends!
Blue Egg Events a picture of my inspiration for the cake, and she was able to make me some cake toppers. They really made the cake. Super cute.
We learned from Jackson's first birthday party (which I need to blog about), that he does NOT like being sung to AT ALL. So we scratched that from the agenda.
McKinley looked so super cute. I found her, a personalized Super Hero cape, from the Etsy store, Little Shepsters. Then I found an adorable swimsuit on Ebay, and put it over Ruffle Butts red tights. When I was getting her dressed for the party, Jackson walked in and said "Sister is such a cutie" I agree, buddy!
