We just had a super hero girls birthday party for my oldest. She loves all things super hero, especially the DC Super Hero Girls, they are her favorite thing right now. I thought this party was cute and budget friendly too.
I decided to make the main colors of the party red, blue and yellow, with some purple throughout too.
I usually bake and decorate a cake for my kids parties but did not this time. I always buy cupcakes from Sams for every birthday party we have. You get 30 cupcakes for around $14, which I think is awesome once you figure how much it would cost and the time it takes to make them yourself. However, if you don’t have a store like Sams or you want to save as much money as possible I would definitely make cupcakes myself.
At the time of her party the Batman vs Superman movie was out. Our Kroger’s had rings for the cupcakes that you can purchase for .10 cents each. So, I got enough for all the cupcakes.
If you are making a cake or cupcakes for a celebration and need toppers or a cake kit always check with your local grocery store bakery. They will usually sell you the kits or toppers for a pretty good price.
I love this inexpensive cupcake stand, which happens to also be a cake pop stand as well! It is always so simple to dress up this plain cupcake stand with whatever theme I’m going for. We used a Batgirl figure she already had on top with a cut out of the Batgirl symbol that I made with my Silhouette Cameo.
I also made some bat brownies. These were a big it with the little ones. I seen this idea on Pinterest for a Halloween party and thought it would work great for our party.
These balloons came from etsy. They are only 5 inches but were so cute above the cupcakes (when they still had helium:) You can find a large selection of balloons online.
I made all of the decorations myself since I had trouble finding supplies (I could only find balloons), which there is NO Problem finding party supplies now 😉
I made a couple banners and some tissue balls and flowers. Tissue balls are easy to make and inexpensive, but still add a lot to your decorations.
We just used regular plates and napkins but I would have loved to have bought these party supplies but they weren’t out when we had our party.
I made these word bubbles say “Kinsey Is 6” and I made some say “POP, BAM,BOOM” that i just put all over the siding and porch . They are really easy to make using Word, I’ve thought about making a free printable or doing a tutorial on how to make them using Microsoft Word if anyone is interested.
We also made some bottle labels for water. These too were made using Word.
I made all the decorations for this party with the exception of the balloons. It was a very budget friendly party since we already had the ink and cardstock paper that it was printed on.
