Venue: Lou's house
Kappppooooowwwwwww! Whoosh, Zap, Bam…nothing subtle or gentle when it comes to a boy’s superhero birthday party! Superheroes - one of those party themes that every boy wants at least once. Think bat mobiles, super powers, alter-egos, night vision, flying, capes and lots and lots of saving the day!Lou’s gorgeous ‘middle’ boy William, fondly known as ‘Will’ wanted a power-packed fifth birthday party. He wasn’t content to choose ONE of the ‘big three’ (Superman, Spiderman and Batman), I mean, why have one when you can have all your superheros together and eat cake at the same time?So, we brought on the lightning bolts and zapped up some kryptonite to pull this colourful, magical and vibrant superhero shindig together! We contacted Alicia from ‘Gracefully Baked’ to whip up the three-tiered confectionary of super-power cake. A gorgeous, brightly-colored cake like this one makes for an awesome party table centre piece, all the little ‘oooohs’ and ‘aaaahs’ make it totally worth it!Lou’s creativity is boundless, but she definitely got by with a little help from her friends this time! When it comes to designing and sewing, Lou turned to the ‘Talented Tee’ (aka Tarryn) for some inspiration! Using a pattern T had previously cut for children’s capes, Taryn whipped up 12 x A-M-A-Z-I-N-G double sided capes for the coveted party favors. She used a shiny, waxed cotton weave, in both blue and red, so the cape is double-sided – so awesome. If waxed-cotton weave all sounds a little daunting, you can actually use any cotton-like fabric.And on the party rocked! Lou didn’t need to hire in entertainers, the capes and choice of superhero masks was enough – off Will and his friends scampered (or flew, or climbed, or swooped) having a marvellous time and super charged with kryptonite!
