{Our Parties} PART ONE (of 3) - Super P Turns 3! A Vintage Pop Art Super Hero Party by Anders Ruff

NOTE: See our new blog post on our new site HERE.

Well, here it is! I am sure most of you have seen the feature on Hostess with the Mostess.
(I was so "Super" excited to be featured on such an amazing party site!)....
Today I am sharing the dessert table from my little Pierson's party.

Here is the background on how this theme and concept was formed...

Being in the “party business”, I (Maureen) always have a vision for what I’d love for my own childrens’ birthday parties, usually which doesn’t align with what they actually want. My son, Pierson, could not be talked out of having a “Super Hero” party. I am always trying to steer clear of commercial characters and I knew I could take the traditional “Super Hero” in a whole new direction.

I have always loved the striking and vintage aesthetic of Roy Lichtenstein Pop Art. I decided to have a Vintage Pop Art Super Pierson Party. (PS. Printables are now available in the shop!)
Most moms to boys end up having a super hero party of some sort, and I wanted to show that you can have a really interesting, cool and fresh and appealing party without having to use commercial characters.

For this party, the graphics helped to mold the decor throughout the whole party.
I designed a “Super P” graphic that would be repeated throughout the party. We also brought in some of the “icons” of super heros - the traditional big city skyline. Patterns used throughout the party and graphics were representative of old comic books include halftone patterns as well as classic “benday dots” (Lichtenstein’s trademark). I designed the invitation below to help set the tone of the party. All of the elements on the invite would be carried out throughout the entire party. I embellished the envelope with a return address label that was a conversation bubble, and then a halftone pattern “to” label. (Both included in our complete printable package in our shop!)

We had some amazing dessert vendors and I can't wait to share the eye candy from the dessert table! Photography from none other than Becca Bond Photography.

The main dessert table featured a large “Super P” logo on the black/white polkadot backdrop. (Printed by Sign Guy!) The table featured “buildings” of varying heights in the red/blue and white colors - these buildings reflected the graphics that we used on the printables. (I got boxes of all sizes at my local Home Depot, wrapped with large scale paper and embellished with windows using electrical tape and black cardstock punched with square punches)

The desserts were mainly displayed on very “pop” feeling lacquer white wooden boxes
that had black etched trim. You will see more pieces from this set throughout the party tables.

The cake was made by the sweetest cake company! Got What It Cakes, which is owned by Mandie Miller. I was so thrilled when she found us on Martha's site and we connected.

The cake couldn't have been more perfect. Mandie put a conversation bubble with "YUM" at the top. How PERFECT!? The skyline coordinates perfectly with the invitation and then the 2nd tier being the benday dot inspired pattern.

The best thing about it - the cake was absolutely AMAZING tasting! I couldn't believe it.
Would you believe that the white is actually butter cream and not fondant!? SO smooth. Mandie was really workin her skills for this cake!
Next sinfully delish confection are the cookies! The Cookie Jar (Lisa Stone) made the most adorable cookie pops that have super hero comments. She also replicated the Super P logo on cookies! Pure amazingness.

A standard at most of our dessert table are the fondant toppers from Two Sugar Babies. I had the pleasure of meeting Charynn, the owner, in NYC at the Martha event last month. She is just as sweet in person! We hit it off and I just LOVE her work!
Check out the amazing Super P logo fondant toppers. The guests raved!

The beautiful cupcake wrappers are from Bella Cupcake Couture... SO FUN!

The sweetness doesn't stop there. We had oreos with coordinating polkadots from Sweeties by Kim. They were fabulous and totally fit in w/ the color scheme and the "feel" of the table. LOVE.

Super cute "3" Lollis were from Vintage Confection. I just love how impactful simple things like big 3 shaped lollis can be!

See... a party can be what your child wants without being overly characterized/commercialized. I just love taking a new twist on traditional themes!
Pop Art Super Hero Printable Package available in the shop.

I'm not against such games, but it never hurts to have alternatives in case one doesn't want
