Batman™/Batgirl Party: Part 2

Check out my post on Batman™/Batgirl Party:  Part 1 to see the invites and how this Batman™/Batgirl party got started.  Our party started at 5:30 PM and I was allowed to come in half an hour before the party to set up.  I wished I had more time.  But when we got there, the tables and balloons were ready to go.

I wrapped some juice boxes with black paper and printed some Batman™ logos on card stock.  We placed the masks I cut from foam on each place setting.

Batman™ Juice

I made the city scape from all the packaging boxes I received from my online purchases, lol...cut up some squares and used the negative of the square cut outs for more windows.  I got the POW! ZAP! templates from 3 Sweet P's blog post on her superhero party.  Keep scrolling down her post till you see her templates, she's got masks and capes on there, too.

Batman™ doll from Target
(found it in the boy's bedding collection)
Rock Candy from Kara's Party Ideas Shop
Flashlights from the Dollar Tree
Instructions found on the Silhouette Blog
*update* Batman logo no longer available :(

 Batman™ Vinyl Logos from the Silhouette Store
*update* Batman logo no longer available :(

On the other table, we set up the cake, cookies, cupcakes, marshmallow treats and other sweet favors.  I don't think I ever did finish setting up this table.  I lost the screw to make my 3-tiered glass trays (I finally did find it on the piano back home).  So the marshmallows and cookies ended up on glass plates instead...oh well, the kids still ate them :)  Guests were already coming in and the photogragper taking her pics...and that lemonade fountain was spraying everything within its range, haha.  When Soulfire Studios emailed me a pic of that fountain weeks before the party, it looked magical and dreamier, lol.

The party package included facepainting, story time, costumes and dancing.  When the kids went into the dance room, they did some warm-ups, stretched, and practiced their dance moves before they got in their cool Batman™ costumes.

Wow!!! What an awesome party! I was looking for some ideas for my daughter's 6th birthday-she is currently batgirl obsessed. There is nothing out there for purchase hardly. Your party is very inspiring. I hope I can come up with something half as nice =)

Thank you! I'm glad to inspire others. I pretty much just changed the typical boys batman party with hot pink, yellow and black. We had fun with this one :)

Hi, I love your batman/batgirl party ideas! I have bought the flashlights to give out as party favors but I'm having trouble with the bat symbol. I read the silhouette blog, but I'm still trying to understand if this is just a template you print and then cut the bats yourself or if silhouette sells them ready. I don't think I can cut such tiny bats so perfectly! Thanks,

The silhouette can be purchased from Silhouette.com for .50 a piece. Just search Batman in the search box on the website.

Flashlights were from the Dollar Tree. I don't know if they still carry them since this party took place in 2012.
