Angelo will be turning 7, this July and he is OBSESSED with superheros, so naturally it was his chosen birthday party theme this year. He wanted to celebrate with his classmates (and partly because their friends threw parties also..)
Here’s a look at Angelo’s 7th SUPERHERO birthday party.
Superheroes are so in with their age right now, and I was very excited about creating a really fun party for my little man.
We started with superhero invites.I asked my sister to do the lay out and went to Photoline for printing. Frankly, I don’t find the need to give out invites since the “guests” are the classmates and teachers, but I chose to gave out invitations because Angelo expected me to make one so he can hand him out to his classmates and announce his upcoming celebration.
The 4R size invitation costs 7.75 pesos per piece. We prepared 25 pieces for his classmates and teachers. Next, I planned the party favors. I got the service of Mate Salazar for personalized pillows. The 8×10 size pillow is worth 50 pesos. The minimun order are 30 pieces so I gave some to his cousins as well. The pillows are too cute and they loved it! It’s simple yet thoughtful. Aside from pillows we also gave super cool superhero masks. I purchased 17 various kinds of masks like Thor, Ironman, Spiderman, Batman and Hulk from Anding Toystore in Divisoria. Each mask cost 40 pesos. And they were a hit.
Instead of candy buffet we handed out Avengers drinking cup with sweets. Each cup includes M&M chocolates, Hershey’s Almond Kisses, Tutti Fruiti Lollies, Potchi and Marshmallows.
The cups are from Divisoria Mall. I got it in wholesale for 95 pesos per dozen. I ordered chocolate chiffon birthday cake from Goldilocks. Instead of chocolate icing, I requested for white icing and added 100 pesos for blue and red color icing.
I also used the superhero toys we got from Mc Donalds Happy Meal. For some fun, easy party décor, we wanted to keep it simple and budget-friendly. I bought Superman buntings and letters balloon. I ordered one day in advance the Chicken with Spaghetti meal from Mc Donalds – Pasay Libertad. This was the most fuss-free preparation since everything was delivered to school.
I learned that the simpler the food, the better. No fancy food required to make the kids happy and full.
I’m glad that the birthday boy enjoyed his celebration. I’m grateful because he’s not asking for a big party.
Since this is also my first time to throw a school party, I realized it’s usually us parents who make things complicated with over-the-top elements at times. The kids are easy to pleased and contented of what we have prepare as long as they have their all-time favorite meals, sing Happy Birthday, and blow out the candle!
