Last year, I thought we were having a Princess & Pirates 5th Birthday for this year's party. I was busy pinning away. But no, once we got the list of themes from Soulfire Studios, the princessy themed ones just didn't sound appropriate...dance studio, princess, tutus...all sounds too cliché and expected. When I read the list out loud to Faith, she heard Batman™/Batgirl and that's how we ended up with hot pink, yellow and black in our party.

I wanted to get all yellow and black flashlights but the three stores I went to ran out. They had a lot of the plastic ones like the pink above. It even came in blue, green and orange.
They really do work and the Batman™ logo does project on the wall. We still have fun with this flashlight until now.
A superhero is not complete without a mask. I got the template from Martha Stewart's Dreamers Into Doers website, those ladies are über talented. I bought some foam from Michaels and elastic from Hancock Fabric. I blinged up the bat (leftover from the invitation) with some pink rhinestones for the birthday girl.
A dear friend came over to help the day of the party to make some cupcakes. I think this was her third time making cupcakes for Faith's birthday and it probably won't be the last. Thank you very much, Ms. Audrey!
