Joshua’s 7th Birthday party

And fast on the heels of Harry’s birthday post, my middle son, Joshua, celebrated his 7th birthday party last month (I’m getting better with the fast posting, lol!).  Again, no matter how much we suggested a party at Lollipops would be great, Josh wanted his party at home and he wanted a Justice League party.  But it couldn’t be a “Super Hero” party because at least Justice League had a girl and he wanted the girls to feel happy coming as well.  In the end, we went for a Justice League/Princess party!

So these were the invitations I made.  I used Stampin’ Up!’s World Spectacular DSP and World’s Greatest stamp, to help me with the theme – so Josh’s party really ended up being a “World’s Greatest Superhero/Princess” theme, lol!  Here are the superheroes:

And here are the princesses:

I used Versamark ink with the stamp set, Up Up and Away, with clear embossing powder to create a cool background. Here are some closeups:Image

Here are the punch-art thin cello bags I made as party treats to take home.  Of course, Batman and Spiderman for the boys and Princess Ariel for the girls:

I made a special banner for the birthday boy (I will try and do some closeup photos of this to put up too):

This was the party table:

And on the party table, we had superhero sticks (inspired from Pinterest) using googlie eyes and SU paper for capes:

Then we had Green Goblin Formula (aka green cordial):

Next was some yummy Ariel Strawberries and Spiderman Strawberries:

There were Rainbow jelly cups:

and, of course, Captain America Star Fruit:

The incredible cupcakes and birthday cake were made by one of the school mums, Rose, who you can check out at Cakes by Rose here – http://cakesbyrose.wordpress.com/.

And finally I made the Lolly Bags to take home, again using World Spectacular DSP and also the Stampin’ Up! Petal Cone Die and Big Shot, which I hung from my Stampin’ Up! card tree:
