Angie gave my boys Spider-Man pajamas for Christmas and as a result, James quickly became obsessed with all things Spider-Man. This included a Spider-Man birthday party, of course. I wasn't thrilled to design a Spider-Man invite, but I was glad I could make my boy happy.
We held it at a local inflatable jump place so there wasn't much decorating for me to do. I did make some spiderweb cupcakes with toppers. The webs were made by drawing concentric circles on top of the cupcake frosting with black icing. Then I lightly pulled a toothpick across the circles to get the web effect (as seen here). I need to remember to make them again for Halloween!
There were also Spider-Man water bottles and Spider-Man puzzles and treats for the favors. I guess that's a sign of a fun party when you don't have time to photograph everything! This party happened a few months ago and James has since moved on to other character obsessions. Now he's totally into the Incredible Hulk and Captain America. Who knows what his party theme will be next year (I hope I don't have to design Hulk invitations)!
