Superhero Birthday Party Ideas and Supplies

Updated on June 27, 2013

Party With The Heroes

Lets plan a Superhero birthday party shall we? I came up with lots of fun ideas on decorations, food - superhero cakes and cupcakes, gathered free printables to help you with your budget, party supplies, game ideas and much, much more!

I always loved reading comic books and enjoyed watching movies and cartoons that featured my favourite heroes. As a kid I admired Superman and Batman the most, now I am a total Wonder Woman fan! Well I still love all of my heroes. This party theme will be fun for both boys and girls.

Make your Superhero Birthday Party a blast!

Superhero party food ideas

Give superpowers to your food

When it comes to superhero party it does not matter what kind of food you serve but how you present it!

Each food can be turned into superfood! As you can see on the picture on the right you can have your food have special power assigned to them - so kids will be happy to reach to and eat carrots (and other healthy food) as it will give them laser vision, super speed etc. Kids will love it!

You can get these food toppers (they can also serve as cupcake toppers) for free at And while you are there be sure to snatch free printable bottle labels too.

Superhero Birthady Party Cakes and Cupcakes

f your little one has their favourite hero you can use their colors as a base of your cake and add their emblem (S for Superman, Spider for Spider man). This will be enough to impress the little ones.

You could also be making a cake which is comic book inspired. You can make a "Pow", "Zaap" or similar action word emblem on the cake.

Buy Superhero Cake & Cupcale Toppers

Making your own cake can be fun but I know it can also be very frustrating, especially when things don't turn out the way we want them to. I am really glad someone thought of cake toppers as these can be life saviours. It's not that rare that I am so overwhelmed with other aspects of party planning that making a sculpted cake is out of question - but with a topper it can still look amazing. Here's a selection of the ones I like the most for this theme.

As I am afraid of spiders (scared to death) I can't exactly say I am a fan of Spider Man but I am a fan of this cake topper. You can build a whole town on top of the cake and make it a play field for the heroes.
