My son Anthony is a huge fan of the superhero Flash. He loves all things speed and declares that Flash is the fastest person ever. I knew a superhero party was an absolute must for his at home 5th birthday celebration.

I was totally inspired when I found the superhero party supplies from @daydreamsociety ( I knew that I wanted the party to have a modern and bright feel. The graphics on their plates and cups were perfect. I loved the pop of turquoise. Those plates inspired the rest of the party decor. From there, I knew immediately that I wanted Melissa, from @doughandbatter ( to custom create cookies to match the party supplies. Her style is was a perfect match for the look I was going for. The designs were spot on. I knew that a custom cake wasn't in the budget so I used my go-to trick. I went to my local supermarket bakery (whose cakes are absolutely delicious) and asked them to make a plain round cake. No writing. No piping. No decorations. Melissa made a special Number five cookie and the cutest sprinkles to match. I added those to the cake for a more custom feel. All the desserts were displayed beautifully on cake stands and tray rentals from @tieabowusa (

I loved watching the kids as they sat at their own special superkids table for their "Power Lunch". The kid chairs from Petite Seats Rentals ( were the perfect touch. My son insisted on having a "special chair" for his birthday. I used the extra wall decals that I had left over from the backdrop and added them to his seat. He was so excited.

When styling events, my husband and I often create one of a kind pieces specifically made for my clients parties. As an event stylist and planner, I love bringing something unique and special to each space. I knew that I wanted to do a DIY project for my little guy. I was inspired by Pinterest and fell in love with the idea of creating an actual cityscape dessert display. My husband and I bought a ton of wood, a few cans of chalk paint, and got to work. To save time and money, we simply built the frames with 3 sides and a top (keeping the back and bottom open). I loved how it turned out.

The display came to life when Elissa from Indie Bee Balloons ( added her organic balloon garland. I wanted to add a bit of texture so I added the paper fans and honey combs for an extra pop of color. I finished off the backdrop with a personalized lightning decal for my little Flash from Simply Love Creations (

Each kid also felt super special with a few of their own personalized items. Tamar from Lts Gourmet Delights ( made the cutest superhero candy lollipops. I was amazed at how many flavors she offers and the options she has based on dietary needs.

The kids also received cloth favor pouches with their name on it from @psychobabyonline ( Inside, they found superhero snacks, pop art tattoos and other fun superhero themed things.

This party was jam packed with superhero awesomeness. I'm so glad Alan from AG Illustration ( was there to capture it all. The photos were beautiful and these memories will last a lifetime.
