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

Super P Turns 3
A Vintage Pop Art Super Hero Party
Part ONE - The Dessert Table (Thursday's post)
Part TWO - The Candy Bar and Favor Table (Monday's post)
Part THREE - The Action (Activities) (today's post)

SUPER excited to share more of the Pop Art Inspired Super Hero party...

I've shared the dessert table, the candy bar and the favor table.
Today I am sharing the "action" portion of the party.

When the children arrived, they were given a "Super Logo" with their initial on it. (It was a sticker that they would adhere to their shirt) I had considered appliqueing shirts for all the kids, but I quit w/ that idea after finishing Pierson's and Jeffrey's ;-) Stickers were MUCH easier and they would be useful for one of the games (later on I'll share)....

The children were pointed in the direction of the London Style "telephone booth" (That I made from a refrigerator box!). There they would transform from their secret identity to their SUPER HERO identity. All of the children were given capes and masks... (Kid Kapers is the BEST - she makes custom capes and masks!) They also had their Super Hero Logo sticker on their shirt...

Even the girls got into it! I was so excited to see them all pretending as well!
They loved their pink get ups!

Here is my sweet Jeffrey coming out from his transformation.

Who knew a box could be so much entertainment?

Here is Adria's daughter..... (not sure where her super logo sticker went?)
Caryn's sweet girls...

All of the tables were pre-set with place settings for each child.
I had made boxed lunches and put them in a white gable box (from Nashville Wraps!)
I adhered a sticker with a city scape on it for the kids to color (think "classy" McDonalds happy meal haha!)
The "callout / conversation bubble" says "Don't forget to eat your veggies!" ;-)

I designed luggage tags for all of the kids with their name on them. Those would signify where the children were to sit.

Each place setting had a black/white polka dot melamine plate (perfectly coordinating - from TARGET!), a water bottle (with our printable wrapper on it), and a cute little pop bottle with candies in it (Thought "POP" would be a good logo to put on those... the kids LOVED them!) Also, red/yellow/blue markers were placed at the tables for the kids to color their lunch boxes....
I wrapped plastic silverware with black/white polkadot napkins from Target and sealed it with one of our printable party logos.

Up close of the water bottle / drink wrap...

Pierson had a special seat ;-) He got an awesome reusable lunch bag from Urban Harmonie Designs.

What was on the menu? HERO sandwiches, of course. Labeled, of course!
Little fruit cups were served and they had "MMM" and "YUM"stickers on them...(in our printable collection!)

Next up - the coloring wall / graffiti wall....
I designed a skyline with some personalized touches like the big Super P Logo and some cute call outs....
This 135" x 36" tall poster wrapped under my bar in my kitchen and the kids were to "Color the wall with their favorite super color"...
This kept the kids busy! What kid wouldn't want to color on the wall!?

By popular demand, we are now offering this customized printable coloring poster in our shop!
By the way, you can't really tell.... but I wrapped my bar. I wrapped the edge of the granite with an aqua grosgrain ribbon and then fit a piece of black/white polkadot wrapping paper to the top portion so that the bar would "coordinate" ;-)

Next up .... Pin the Super Logo on Pierson's Super P!
I drew a pop art graphic poster of Pierson (remember, over the candy bar?)....
The kids were blindfolded and given a super hero logo sticker (with their initial - like the one they wore on their shirt).... they had to pin their logo on Pierson's logo....

Some were closer than others! ;-)

We had a Photo Booth for the children to have their pictures taken. We made (DIY project) a fake barbell weight that the kids could pretend to be lifting over their heads. we also had handheld signs that said “Boom” and “Pow”. The backdrop was the polkadot/benday dot pattern that was repeated on the dessert table. We also had a printed “conversation bubble” that was on the backdrop and it said “Happy 3rd Birthday Super Pierson”.
We got some funny shots
(don't mind my ribbon stash at the top!) ;-)
Jeffrey being "SUPER".

I made a prop that was a barbell weight.... Jeffrey is SUPER strong!

Adria and I had to get in on the action before everyone arrived....

You'lll see that we had yellow/red/blue cardboard bricks that the kids enjoyed building walls and breaking through walls like a super hero.
We had the "boom" and "POW" signs printed at Sign Guy, as well as the big Super P emblems that were all over!

Adria's daughters....

Caryn's daughter....

Pierson was loving his mask and cape from Kid Kapers!

Super heros all over!

My boys before the party....

Super girls all over, too!

At cake time, we used plates that JoAnne of Oh Goodie Designs loaned me.
They were so SUPER!
That cake was just SO delish (Thanks, Mandie/ Got What It Cakes!)

Overall this was a SUPER party! Thanks to all of the fabulous dessert artists and vendors for their awesome products!

One of my fav shots.... ;-)

I'm stunned by all the details that went into this party. It's incredible! It looks like the kids had a fantastic time!

Annie said...

I LOVE the idea of using the superhero stickers for the shirts and the game!! Did you all design and print those stickers?? Annie (Kid Kapers)

Mike and Shayla said...

What great ideas! I did wonder one thing, did you ask all the guests to wear a white shirt, or did it just work out that way?

There is a distinctive difference between normal copywriting and center copy writing service that will
ensure you of getting right content and better traffic.

Using a refrigerator box to make a gigantic prop for the kids was a fantastic idea! Very well done indeed!
