Oliver's 4th Batman Birthday

Last weekend we hosted our first party in our new house, a Batman-themed 4th Birthday Party. We had some family and Ollie invited some of his new friends for a lovely afternoon celebration. As per usual, I went a little overboard, but tried my best to keep to a budget, so I did a lot of fun DIYs to decorate.

I saved boxes from the move, painted and made a mini Gotham City for the the tablescape. I hate all the junk that kids get in goody bags, so ours consisted of the candy they got from the piñata, a quality batman mask and I bought a few yards of felt to make capes for each little guest.

Our local favorite, The Cakabakery, made the delicious cake.

the kiddos loved the props I downloaded here printed and photo booth backdrop I hand painted on a large piece of cardboard. If you’re not as ambitious as me, I found this super cute cityscape backdrop.

We also had a piñata and a pin the logo on batman game.

Mood Board // Trolls Birthday Party

When you love planning kid parties, but you HATE planning character themed kids birthdays, what do you do? My little has requested a Trolls themed third birthday. Upon his request, I only cringed a little, because I knew there was so much other magic in that movie I could pull without pasting Princess Poppy everywhere. I am planning to play up the rainbows, magic plants, flowers and bugs, and incorporating actual Trolls sporadically throughout the decor.  This technique can easily be translated to other parties as well, if your little wants a Superhero Party, consider playing up the city skyline, or a Minnie Mouse party, polka-dots could be the dominating element. What do you think? Do you head to Party City and buy up the section, or do you like to take a character theme to another level?
