We LOVE superhero parties – especially when they’re pretty in pink!
Today we’ve taken inspiration from our pink pop art superhero party supplies to show you how to throw an awesome comic book superhero party. It’s the perfect birthday party theme for any little superhero or heroine and you can use a pretty pink colour scheme like us, or stick with traditional primary colours.
Find out how to add some pow to your party with our easy comic book superhero decorating ideas, party games, party food ideas and more!
Kick off your comic book superhero party with some themed tableware like this – it’s an easy way to inject some colour into your party and start building up your theme.
Make sure you’ve got all the basics covered like plates, cups, napkins, tablecloths and straws.
Anything with superhero action words on is a must – think pow! zap! bam! pop! and any other action words you’d expect to see in a comic book.
Comic book superhero decorating ideas
As for decorations, stick with cityscapes and action words for an authentic comic book look.
If you choose a pink party theme like us, mix and match comic book superhero bunting like this with plain-coloured fans, pom poms and lanterns that match your colour scheme.
Don’t be afraid of bright colours – if your main colour scheme is pink and purple, add some contrast with a couple of bright yellow decorations.
Comic book superhero party food
When it comes to party food, you can have loads of fun with a comic book superhero party theme. Here are a couple of suggestions:
Popcorn is the perfect superhero party food – particularly when it’s served in comic book style popcorn boxes like these. Action words are an iconic symbol of comic books and ‘pop!’ for popcorn will fit your theme perfectly!
Cupcakes can be adapted to any party theme and we love these pop art superhero cupcake toppers.
Pop one on top of each cupcake to add even more action words like ‘mmmm’ and ‘lick’. Your guests will feel like they’ve stepped straight into a comic book!
We love these comic book ice cream tubs too – and ‘mmmm’ is exactly what your guests will be saying when you serve up these tasty treats!
Comic book superhero party games
Next up is party games – and no birthday party is complete without them! Here are a couple of suggestions for a comic book superhero party.
This is a fun way to test your superhero speed! Line everyone up and on the word go, race to the finish line. Whoever finishes first wins a prize!
Superhero obstacle course
If you’re throwing your party outside or in a rented hall where you’ve got plenty of space, an obstacle course is a fun way to test your powers of agility.
Set up an obstacle course with hula hoops, cones, boxes and other obstacles and give a prize to the child who completes the course in the fastest time.
Superhero photo booth
Photo booths are always fun too! Get hold of a pack of pink pop art superhero photo props to match your party theme and transform a corner of the room into a photo booth with lots of superhero decorations. Then give everyone some props and strike your best superhero pose for the camera!
Finally, make sure you give your guests a party bag to take home. We’d recommend filling pop art party bags like these with pink sweets, small toys and puzzles.
