How to throw the best Marvel-inspired kids party?
With the Marvel Cinematic Universe becoming a huge force in the entertainment industry, it’s no surprise it’s also entering our private lives. Namely, there’s a rising number of fan memorabilia you can find everywhere you look, both online and in your local shops, as well as more people who love dressing up like Marvel characters – and not just for Halloween! And if you, your friends or children love these comic books, movies and TV shows as well, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy your favorite heroes and act like them, at least for just a day. Planning Marvel parties is easy, so here are a few ideas to consider.
The right atmosphere
The only way to throw a great costume party is by dedicating your time and attention to details and make sure all elements works in cohesion. In other words, you have to make sure all your decorations, costumes, food, drinks and even the background music has something to do with Marvel and the movies based on their characters. Naturally, a true Marvel fan would never make a catastrophic mistake of throwing in a set of Batman-inspired paper cups or an Aquaman poster, but just be certain everything is kosher.
Themed birthday parties are the first idea that pops into anyone’s mind when they hear the words “Marvel” and “party” put together, but these aren’t the only occasions where you can channel your inner Hulk. Halloween parties, for example, have always been a crowd favorite when it comes to costume parties, and the same goes for office parties, too. Finally, you can also throw Marvel-inspired garden parties this summer and welcome new movies featuring your favorite superheroes. You can always call landscapers from Sydney to redo your lawn and bring it back to life after your party.
As mentioned before, this is probably the easiest way to show your appreciation of the MCU – just make a themed birthday cake, add a bunch of decorations, dress the guest of honor in an adequate costume and you’re good to go! The theme can be quite simple: pick your superheroes – Spider-Man is the one kids usually love the most – and focus your attention on them. These parties are an amazing way for your kids to show their love for costumed heroes, but aren’t limited to children exclusively, so even adult fans of Marvel can throw a themed birthday party for their friends, as long as it’s not cheesy.
Foods and drinks
Besides cakes, biscuits and cupcakes, what are some of the other foods and drinks you can serve at a superhero party? Obviously, everything decorated with a little superhero flag or wrapped in a paper wrap that mimics the looks of a classic comic book is quite all right and will make all of your guests rather happy. When it comes to drinks, show your creative side and serve party drinks that your favorite crusaders love.
All great parties need fun activities that will keep them moving and, unless you wish to bore your guests to death, be sure to add a few things they can do – besides eating and drinking, of course. While children love party entertainers who don’t mind putting on a superhero costume, they prefer those dressed up as villains even more! That way, they can take on the role of their favorite superheroes and pretend to save the world – yes, this is an act most of them will easily see through, but it’s still fun and enjoyable.
You don’t have to wait for a brand new Marvel flick to organize a movie night featuring some of characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. These parties are the easiest ones to throw and you basically don’t need anything other than a big-screen TV, some popcorns and costumes. It goes without saying that scattering a few comic books around the room is always a good idea in case you have a few guests who love reading them.
Some of the other superhero-based ideas you might want to try out at your party include wearing superhero masks and capes, playing superhero party games and printing invitations featuring a superhero or two – that way, your invitees will know how to dress and what to expect!
