{Real Parties} A Superhero Birthday Party

Real Party features are one of my favorite types of post to share. Although all of the "staged" parties out there are fun to look at and serve as great sources of party inspiration for us all, it's the REAL PARTIES that really amaze me. I love to see all of the creativity and talent that is floating around out there, especially when it comes from a fellow mommy. Today's Real Party feature is a Superhero Birthday Party that was submitted by Laurie of Adoption Creates Families. Laurie (a fellow mommy) put together a party that any little boy would love and she was able to do it on a budget!

How cool is the building background that Laurie made! I also love all of the bright colors that she incorporated and the added black and white polka dot accents.

Laurie used comic books to cover wooden letters to spell out her sons name and to make the party signs and popcorn cones with. You can find DIY instructions for these projects as well as her balloon wreath and superhero Tootsie Pops over at her blog, here.

Laurie also provided guests (and the party boy) with a fun way to remember the special day: a photo op corner! I love any type of photo prop area at parties, especially when children are involved. My kids, at least, alway seem a little more willing stop and get their picture taken when it involves a cool prop.

Great job, Laurie, and thank you for sharing your son's party with Sheek Shindigs. To see more of the party's details, visit Laurie at Adoption Creates Families.


  1. How wonderful for Jayden! He's a lucky kid to get such a wonderfully creative birthday party. Thanks so much for sharing. Great ideas, for sure.

  2. What an amazing party table! Loved how you gave everything (even the lollipops!) a superhero flair! Great ideas!
