PARTY DETAILS, as told by Debbie


For the decor and decoration I was inspired by Vintage comics and Roy Lichtenstein. His style is the perfect balance between Vintage, Retro and Modern, so we wanted to keep it simple, but colorful to really let the printables and sweets take center stage.

For the backdrop we use a large polka dot print in orange to make it a little bit more fun instead of using the traditional red, blue and yellow color schemes. We placed our large conversation bubble: “Calling all Superheroes: there’s been a SWEETS EXPLOSION…. Help us eat them before it’s too late!” and our smaller explosion/crash signs with “Zap”, “Pow”, “Boom”, birthday boys name and age with white clouds and lightening bolts to create an explosion.


The sweets we choose to create the sweets explosion were confetti filled cupcakes, “pop”corn, large swirly lollipops, “Super” Crunch bars wrapped with our candy wrappers and favors filled with colorful delights to give energy back to our Superheroes. For refueling we had mini HERO H20 water bottles and antidote to Kryptonite drinks.
