Whether you are planning a birthday party for your kids or a superhero party to go with your next movie night, throwing an awesome party for your kids can be challenging. Ever since we went to see Black Panther in theatres, my girls have not been able to stop talking about it! At long last, the BluRay release is finally here, and to celebrate; we’re talking about throwing ourselves a little princess and superhero party! If you ask my girls, they will tell you their newest favorite princess is Shuri, so this falls right in line that theme. These ideas would actually be great for a movie viewing party or a birthday party for your kids. Here is your how-to guide to throwing an awesome superhero party for your kids.
We were sent a bunch of really cool Black Panther and Superhero Swag from Disney and Zac Designs to add to our party and be sure to also check out this post for over 50 Marvel Superhero Toys and Decor to include as well!
Princess and Superhero Party Ideas
Focus on a few key characters
If you are throwing a superhero party, you may be overwhelmed by the number of choices available to you. By limiting your focus to a few superheroes, you can keep the overwhelm to a minimum. Instead of including every superhero under the sun, consider focusing on just your children’s favorites. For example, Black Panther alone would be a great way of limiting your superheroes. You can also stick to only one movie to make it easier.
Dress up for the occasion
It’s a themed party, so why not dress like it! Have your young superheroes dress up as their favorite superhero and even get the parents involved! If you are having a viewing party, you could have the entire family dress up, or have your kids be the ones to dress up.
Superhero Party Menu: Extend the theme to your food
There are so many great recipes out there you can use for your superhero party! A quick search on Google or Pinterest will lend you thousands of different options no matter what superhero you are focusing on. Since we are hosting a Black Panther superhero party, we tried to keep it simple yet fun!
Here are some of the recipes we were able to find that were related to the Black Panther movie:
As you can see, you don’t need to spend a lot of money to create super food for your superhero party!
Decorations will be the glue that holds your party together! You don’t have to go out and buy a bunch of decorative items you will likely never use again either! Once your child has decided on their superhero of choice, consider using colors to help decorate your space! Since we are throwing a Black Panther themed party, we chose black and gold. We found black lanterns to hang, a black tablecloth, and used blue as an accent piece to brighten up the tables.
