POP Heroes Justice League Birthday Party

Did somebody call Super-Mom?! Jeannette Rivas of J. At Your Service came soaring in to the rescue with this POP Heroes Justice League Birthday Party! Her son, Nate, loves these action figures, and since they’re fairly new, Jeannette had to come up with some clever crafting to really bring them to life. I just love all of the colorful, graphic elements — they really make this party POP! ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Action figure photoshoot in custom painted frames + DIY decorated ‘N’ hero centerpieces
– Masked 6 topped cupcakes + jarred Green Lantern gummy worms
– Incredible POP Hero Flash & Superman sugar cookies by Auntie Bea’s Bakery
– Pop art style printables & party favors + bold black & white stripe accents
– Justice League decorated ‘NATE’ kid’s table centerpiece + fun games with the Flash

Lemon Almond Pound Cake with Almond Flower Glaze

While the glaze was still wet, I decorated the cake with little “almond flowers” all over the top, using white chocolate chips as the centers and sliced almonds as the petals. Here’s how it turned out:
