Crystal hosted an amazing Vintage Comic Book theme party for her son Christian’s birthday. The party theme is so unique and fun! The super hero cake pictured above featured buildings and popular super hero sayings. The cake was made by @sweetlilsweets and Crystal made the sayings topper using cardstock she purchased at Michael’s Craft Store. Crystal also made the Chu! cake decoration.
The cookies were also made by @sweetlilsweets and were decorated with popular saying such as Boom, Zap, Pow and Wham! Crystal displayed the party cookies on vintage comic books which were covered in plastic. I love this!
Crysal created buildings using shoe boxes and shiny wrapping paper. The windows were made from black cardstock. The rice krispie treats were made by one of Crystal’s best friends and her son’s Godmother.
Crystal purchased solid colored party cups and decorated them with a strip of comic book paper and embellished them with little topppers featuring her son’s initial. She also included a cute juice container on the drinks table with a sign that read “Power Pop!”
The treats table included chocolated covered Oreo cookies, yellow lightning bolt lollipops, red and blue gumballs in glass jars and colored popcorn wrapped in comic book cones.
Another sweet treat served at the party were these chocolate dipped and swirled marshmallows. The marshmallows were decorated with cute comic book toppers which featured the birthday boy’s initial. The party favor bags were regular solid colored lunch bags. These bags were accented with each of the child’s names in a vintage comic book talk bubble. The bags included vintage comic books and sweets from the party table.
The sweets table backdrop featured red, yellow and blue streamers, a banner made from comic book paper, a small pennant banner made from comic book pages and cardstock purchased at Micheal’s Craft Store, a pom pom decoration with the word Pow! in the middle of it and paper fans purchased at the $.99 Store. Cyrstal had another pom pom with the text “Make a Hero” on it. Crystal set out cold cuts, rolls, mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, plates and napkins and each of the kids made their own hero sandwich.
Happy Birthday, Christian!
