Lola is one tough chick, anyone close to her knows this. She is that little girl in a dress and hiking boots. She can certainly out fight her brother. Her hair is wild and I'm only allowed to style it on very special occasions (or when it is falling into her cheerios). She will bleed without a tear. It wasn't really a surprise when she asked to have a superhero party.
My go-to place for party inspiration is My Little Day. It is expensive to ship overseas, but they always have really cute and not-so-mainstream ideas. Their Superheroines themed party supplies reminded me of the brightly colored, old school comic book, Lichtenstein, ben-day dot look I love. And so, Lola's Pop Art Superhero Party was born!
A superhero needs a city, ya know? I sewed large panels of felt onto a polka dot sheet to make this cityscape.
I set up a station for the kids to color their own masks.
It was a weird weather day, so we started out with the backdrop outside and had to move it inside when the rain came. By the time everyone got there the sun was out and it was beautiful! But a gal can only move the decor a certain number of times. 2. 2 times. So I left it inside and the kids could come in for pictures.
Her little birthday banner might be my favorite decoration from the party, it turned out super cute!
We also left out a bin of superhero costumes should anyone feel like a character change.
I did not make the cake. Y'all know how I feel about making cakes. But Lola and I did come up with the design and had a local grocery store make it.
A couple buttons for the adults.
And the gift boxes, filled with stickers and other assorted superhero swag.
I repainted the toss game from Lola's Kitty Party. I think I'll make that a tradition.
She had a pretty great day celebrating her 4th birthday with family and friends! Happy Birthday, Lola!
