One of the most popular posts on this blog is a girl’s superhero party. So I thought it might be fun to create a mini party plan for a superhero birthday party. I styled this mini party plan in the traditional red, yellow, and blue, but you could change the color palette for a more girly pink and purple superhero party, if you prefer.
If your party is about one specific superhero instead of multiple heroes, check out my Superhero Party Pinterest board — it’s got even more ideas for you and I add to it all the time.
One of the design choices you’ll need to make will be based on the age of your birthday child. Do you want a more juvenile-looking superhero or a more sophisticated, closer to the comic books style? Once you make that choice, stick to it and don’t mix styles.
