I was mainly on decoration duty as it was something I could work on ahead of time as I'm an out-of-towner. In a previous post I showed how I made tissue paper pom-poms in super-hero/comic book colors (red, blue, yellow, and black). I also made a couple bunting banners out of comic books and poster board. I cut pennants out of poster board in red, yellow, blue, and black. Then I cut slightly smaller triangles from comic book pages that I glued onto the poster board pennants.
I then used duct tape to string the pennants together. I found some fun red and white chevron duct tape in Target's dollar area, but only one roll, so I had to use red duct tape for the second banner. I placed the pennants comic side down onto the edge of the duct tape to prevent creases (as I figured out after the first banner) and then folded the duct tape in half with the pennant stuck between.
And here are the two finished banners:
I also made a "Baby Shower" banner, similar to how I made this Halloween banner, using comic book pages.
I found plates and cupcake wrappers at Michael's that I thought fit the theme. Vicki baked and decorated some yummy lemon, strawberry, and chocolate cupcakes. I also bought a cookie cutter from The Cookie Cutter Company that Bonnie and Monet used to cut-out sugar cookies and label with words like "Pow!", "Wiz!", "Bam!". The cookie cutter is actually a spider web but I thought it would work for the action bubbles in comics.
Bonnie, Monet, and Vicki set-up a candy station for party favors:
............they also made a city backdrop for the food table..................
And Vicki made a super-hero diaper cake!
All-in-all, everyone had a good time and our friend Sam appreciated the love shown to her and her soon to arrive baby boy. And us girls had a fun time party planning! :o)
