Superhero parties are relatively easy to decorate for, since your color scheme is limited to, well, the rainbow. I mostly honed in on the primary colors, but anything bright and bold will do. As always, I made the party decorations using inexpensive materials and things I had on-hand for an inexpensive but fun party.
My concept for the party theme was that the kids came to S.I.L.A.S. (my son’s name) to become superheroes. The activities, meal, and favors would lead them to leaving the party as a new superhero.
I made this welcome sign using poster board and based the design off of a quick Google search for superhero logos.
I bought dollar store tablecloths in primary colors and cut them in half length-wise. They went up a lot faster than streamers do, and I think they made a bigger impact in the room. I thought they might also kind of look like superhero capes, but I am not sure that was obvious.
I used my new Cameo to make some superhero sound effect signs. My husband very nicely suspended them from the dining room ceiling with monofilament while I was finishing up the party food.
If you would like the cut files for these signs, click HERE for the backgrounds and HERE for the lettering.
I set the food table up as the Ability Modification Lab, since each food would give the guests a different super power.
I used the little superhero figures I bought at Dollar Tree as table decorations too.
Beyond that, the kids themselves were kind of party decorations since each of them was dressed in their superhero accessories.
So, for basically the cost of poster board, construction paper, and plastic tablecloths I was able to decorate the whole party! Not too shabby.
