This phenomenal SUPERHERO THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Karen Ayars.
I am in awe of Karen’s talent in styling this superhero party! There are so many amazing ideas here and some of my favorites are:
The stools covered in superhero comics
The 3 tier cake covered with comic strips, newspaper print, the super “A” logo and topped with a bomb shaped topper
Here’s what Vana said about the party- “We had a mix of themes for our little man’s 1st birthday party. The main one was ‘Movie in the Park’ and Little Man and puppies. I incorporated my son’s 12 months of silhouettes (I drew his silhouette each month of his life until his first birthday). And of course our little man was as dapper as he could be. DIY Bow ties were part of his attire, decorations, props and party favors for his guy friends and bow clips for the lady friends. The dessert table consisted of cupcakes, macaroons, powder donuts and cake pops as well as sweet marshmallows. Lots of preppy stripes and dots went without saying – green and different hues of blue, and of course yellow – Hello Spring! I created a cute sign “Movie in the park. Grab a blanket and enjoy!” and lots of pillows and blankets for the kids to grab and get comfortable watching a puppy movie. Some of the fun DIY projects included the topiary trees made with boxwood balls, bow ties and bow hair clips and silhouette banner. We worked with the talented Kelly Lyden of WH Hostess to perfect each detail of the party. Kelly’s eye for detail and all things party, made this party extra special.

This modern CAR THEMED SECOND BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Melissa of The Cake Boutique.
Some of my favorite ideas in this car themed party are:
The popcorn served in cupcake liners since smaller portions were needed
The black favor bags made to resemble a road
The fruit kebabs threaded onto plastic straws- a safer option for little guests
This is what Melissa said about planning the party- “My son, Finley, turned two and we threw him a car themed party (his two favourite words are Cake and Car), styled around his birthday gift, a red ride-on retro tin car. We wanted it to be bright and clean, so stuck to a red colour palette with accents of blue. Grey chevrons provided a fun geometric backdrop which we repeated in the cake design. The gorgeous paperie was custom made to incorporate the theme. Guests enjoyed a variety of motor themed sweets and treats, including vanilla bean cupcakes, Mint Chocolate marshmallow tires, Jelly Fuel, Nuts and Bolts popcorn, Road sign chocolates and custom made Belgian chocolate cars.
The conservatory was converted into a mini race track with toy cars and ride-on vehicles for the kids to play with and the ceiling was strung with giant balloons in the main party colours.
The tiny guests were given a custom made Road party bag filled with toy cars, car shaped chocolates and a car bath squirter.”
