Saturday we celebrated our littlest dude’s 4th birthday party and it was AMAZING!
So Jaxon is obsessed with Mr. Spiderman right now, he likes them all but Spidey is his all time favorite. He begged for a Spiderman superhero birthday party and that is exactly what he got. Now, I know I could have done MORE Spiderman, but this is my third Spiderman birthday party y’all. My other 2 boys also went through a superhero obsessed age and so I try to switch it up a little every time so that I don’t feel like I’m throwing the same party over and over again. This theme as you will see is more of a generic superhero theme but I made sure to include Spiderman in posters, invitations, cake and goodie bags.
Since we hosted his party at his favorite indoor jumping playground, our time in the actual party room was limited to only 45 minutes, so I didn’t want to go crazy with decorations that would both take too long to set up and break down. I kept it simple and still I had a lot of other moms peep through the window to take a looksie. Some even wanted to use our picture backdrop for pix. Always a good sign when others appreciate your creativeness.
I simply allotted a corner for cake and selfie photo backdrop with props, I used sticky tack on printed “Daily Bugle front pages” all over the walls along with superhero action word cutouts, the centerpieces were mod podged paper mache letters with comic book strands.
Lets begin with invitations, I purchased the PDF design from Fuzzy Ink Stationary and tweaked a little bit of her layout by adding Houston’s skyline along with a different Spiderman body. I purchased vintage computer paper to print the invitations on to give them an authentic weathered newspaper look and feel. I printed them here at home folded them in half and stuffed them with a customized word search puzzle of his favorite things and added 2 giant coloring pages from a coloring book purchased at a nearby dollar store. This gave the “newspaper” more “pages”. Finally I used brown twine to tie them as they do or did ??? the newspaper stacks.
