Super Birthday Party

As promised, here are the rest of the details of my little man's first birthday party! He's always been my Super Preston so a superhero party seemed fitting. We started with some sweet invitations that set our theme.

For the day of the party I had cupcakes with our "Preston is 1" logo on the signs.

And my favorite part...

Superhero supplies. Each kid got to choose their super power!

They had 24 powers to choose from... x-ray vision, mind reading, invisibility, muscle, teleportation, immortality, elasticity, etc.

I'm not going to lie, I only made two capes. I guess I didn't quite make it to my goal. In the end, I'm glad I didn't spend hours and hours making capes. My little man got to wear his and I'm glad I did that.

Then came the cake. He hated it! But it looked great. I made it days in advance, froze it, printed out a P in a superhero font, cut out the cake and frosted it while still frozen. It worked like a charm.

Be looking for a "Superhero Party Kit" in my shop soon. I'll be selling the invitations, cupcake tags, super power water bottle labels and absolutely NO capes!
