A Vintage Pop Art Super Hero Party
Part ONE – The Dessert Table (today’s post)
Part TWO – The Candy Bar and Favor Table
Part THREE – The Action (Activities)
(I was so “Super” excited to be featured on such an amazing party site!)….
Here is the background on how this theme and concept was formed…
Most moms to boys end up having a super hero party of some sort, and I wanted to show that you can have a really interesting, cool and fresh and appealing party without having to use commercial characters.
I designed a “Super P” graphic that would be repeated throughout the party. We also brought in some of the “icons” of super heroes – the traditional big city skyline. Patterns used throughout the party and graphics were representative of old comic books include halftone patterns as well as classic “benday dots” (Lichtenstein’s trademark). I designed the invitation below to help set the tone of the party. All of the elements on the invite would be carried out throughout the entire party. I embellished the envelope with a return address label that was a conversation bubble, and then a halftone pattern “to” label. (Both included in our complete printable package in our shop!)
We had some amazing dessert vendors and I can’t wait to share the eye candy from the dessert table! Photography from none other than Becca Bond Photography.
The main dessert table featured a large “Super P” logo on the black/white polkadot backdrop. (Printed by Sign Guy!) The table featured “buildings” of varying heights in the red/blue and white colors – these buildings reflected the graphics that we used on the printables. (I got boxes of all sizes at my local Home Depot, wrapped with large scale paper and embellished with windows using electrical tape and black cardstock punched with square punches)
The desserts were mainly displayed on very “pop” feeling lacquer white wooden boxes that had black etched trim. You will see more pieces from this set throughout the party tables.
The cake was made by the sweetest cake company! Got What It Cakes, which is owned by Mandie Miller. I was so thrilled when she found us on Martha’s site and we connected.
The cake couldn’t have been more perfect. Mandie put a conversation bubble with “YUM” at the top. How PERFECT!? The skyline coordinates perfectly with the invitation and then the 2nd tier being the benday dot inspired pattern.
The best thing about it – the cake was absolutely AMAZING tasting! I couldn’t believe it.
Would you believe that the white is actually butter cream and not fondant!? SO smooth. Mandie was really workin’ her skills for this cake!
Check out the amazing Super P logo fondant toppers. The guests raved!
