Lucas' Avengers Superhero 3rd Birthday (50 photos)
My son Lucas is obsessed with The Avengers, Spiderman and all things Superhero! For his 3rd birthday there was no other thought that crossed my mind than to give him an Avengers inspired Superhero Party.
I wanted to try and do something different for the dessert table, so I had my father build me wooden plinths which I painted in black chalkboard paint, drew on windows with chalk, and lined up along side each other to create a building/skyscraper effect. The desserts were displayed on top of the “buildings” at various heights.
For the backdrop, Elise from Sweet Scarlet Designs created a vibrant, slightly pop art effect backdrop and printable design set. I loved the pop of aqua blue & red against the white and black.
I love to keep the kids occupied so setup lots of Superhero inspired activity stations – we had “Shoot the Baddies” where kids shot tin cans wrapped with villain imagery with a toy gun and nerf bullets; “Hulk Smash” where the kids smashed up wafer ice cream cones with giant Hulk fist gloves; “Pin the Star on Captain America’s shield” and we also had a “Spider Web Attack” where Lucas’ uncle Damian dressed up as a robber with black balaclava and the kids sprayed (or should I say “attacked”) him with silly spray.
Some of the desserts we served included a 3-tier cake by Helena of Sweet Tiers. The top tier had the pop art polka dots, middle tier had edible imagery of Avenger cartoon comics and the bottom tier was building skyline. Other desserts included Captain America shield macarons, jelly pots with little red superhero capes tied to them, Avenger cake pops. We also had some amazing sugar cookies made – some were made as the Avenger masks. Noo from Dessert Menu Please made them the perfect size for little faces and the kids could hold the masks up to their face and look through the eye holes – that was super adorable! Noo also made “BAM” and “POW” cookies, as well as some awesome comic books with “Super Lucas” written on them. Her skill is amazing!
Once all the food was eaten, we moved all the cake stands and the kids were able to climb atop the “buildings” and act out their superhero fantasies! This was a perfect superhero photo booth setup. I also had a giant Hulk cardboard cut-out which the kids loved to pose in front of.
For favours, the kids were given custom made superhero cartons filled with “super treats” including a superhero mask, Avengers colouring book, and some sweet treats. It truly was a SUPER DAY for my little SUPER BOY Lucas xx
