Superhero birthday parties are a timeless classic and you don’t have to be supermum (or superdad!) to make yours look awesome.
Of all the amazing superhero party themes to choose from, pop art is undoubtedly one of our favourites.
And we threw this superhero party together on a minimal budget with some plain party supplies and our free superhero party printables. It’s really really easy to do and if you stick to a red, blue and yellow colour scheme it’s guaranteed to look out of this world!
Setting up your superhero party
First up, set the scene by laying the table with some brightly coloured tablecloths. Red, blue and yellow work best as they’ll give your party a real pop art feel.
Sticking to three simple colours is an easy way to make your party look fantastic – even if creativity is not one of your superpowers!
Big cities are a superhero’s playground so decorate the back of your table with cardboard cut outs of city skyscrapers.
Simply download our cityscape printables and stick them onto pieces of card to make them stiffer. Then prop them up at the back of the table and you have an impressive city backdrop!
Then it’s time to jazz up your plain-coloured tableware – as far as budget superhero party ideas go, this one’s a good’un!
Print out our free napkin rings and paper plate inserts and use them to transform your plain tableware into something with a bit more oomph! You could even mix and match with some official superhero party supplies if your child likes a particular character best!
You can even make simple drinks cartons look the part by wrapping our free printable drinks wrappers around them. And if you’re serving little bottles of pop, print out our free superhero straw toppers and pop them on top of some red chevron straws.
Finally, make sure no-one is left out by printing out our free superhero place cards and putting them in front of each child’s place. If your guests are coming to the party in fancy dress, you could use their superhero names instead of their real names!
