A SUPER Vintage Super GIRL Party
We are thrilled to show off this SUPER GIRL party today! Remember Super Pierson’s Vintage Pop Art Super hero party? (With the cute capes from Kid Kapers) Well, the talented Annie of Kid Kapers has a talented sister, Molly (of Molly B Photography), who recently threw an adorable SUPER GIRL party for her daughter. We modified our Super Hero printables to a Girl’s Vintage Super Hero printable party collection and I just adore what Molly did with them!
Such a cute job, Molly!
The SUPER GIRL Printable Invitation and Design Collection is available in our shop here.
In Molly’s words…
Who says girls can’t be superheroes? I try to never limit my daughter, and Vita definitely has many sides to her from her frou-frou girly, girl side that adores fashion and dress-up to her digging for worms, play-fighting tom-boy side. She loves running around with her cape and mask and super-serious face as much as the boys, so this vintage superhero party was perfect for her 4th birthday party.
I love the Super V outfit we put together which shows Vita’s personality. My sister Annie of Kid Kapers made that cool cape (I love the colors–the inside gold color really gave it a vintage look), the fun lightning bolt mask, and custom belt (I thought that really topped off the outfit). She is actually wearing her Target swimsuit from last summer along with her pink high-tops. You can see more pics of her get-up in my previous blog post.
Let me just say that Anders Ruff Custom Printables are awesome! Not sure what party printables are? Check out their shop which has many, many different fun party themes. They make you look festive and professional. They customize your file and email it to you. Once I got the file, I just emailed the file with directions to my local printer, picked it up when ready, and then I have flashbacks to my teacher days while cutting everything out and gluing and taping it all together.
I incorporated many different homemade elements to this party. I drew up logos with their initials on sticky paper, and the kids fancied up their logos by coloring and bedazzling.
The kids also loved the big wall coloring sheet–I want to have one of this big wall colorings for all of our parties! You can even order items a la carte for Anders Ruff here, and get the big wall coloring by itself. This was a big hit!
You have to defeat the evil villain at a superhero party, so I made my own piñata out on a box, paper mâché, and tissue paper. Vita designed the villain and wanted her to be an evil queen. I liked that she made her a girl villain. If girls can be the superhero, who says girls can’t be the villain, too?
I also made the pin the mask on the super V out of a big photograph close-up of her face that I happened to have unframed. That enormous head with the little superhero body cracked me up every time I saw it. I also cut out the masks out of felt with sticky tape on the back for the kids to try to get the mask on her eyes.
For the photobooth, I wanted to recreate a city-skyline and wanted to jazz it up, so teal and pink buildings it was.
We also had the little superheroes work on super-strength by trying to throw water balloon as fast and far as they could. But I think it might have just been enough entertainment for them to just let them run around with their capes blowing in the wind.
And lastly, here are some images of the party decor. I incorporated blue, pink, and yellow candies, as well as some healthy fruits and vegetables with fun sayings accompanying the food like “X-Ray Vision Booster”. I also decided to make some Rice Krispies pops because it doesn’t take as much time as cake pops, and who doesn’t like Rice Krispies treats?? I just added some pink food coloring, paper masks and capes, and some cute treat sticks. I also used a star-shaped cookie cutter to cut the kids’ sandwiches into stars. I kept the food pretty simple, as I’ve learned in the past that going too overboard on all of the sweets leaves us with a lot of sugary food in our house afterwards.
Hopefully, you moms out there can share these pictures with your daughters the next time they ask for the typical princess party and can show them that they can still have their pink tutu and defeat the bad guy (or bad girl).
Thanks for sharing, Molly!
