Batman Party Inspiration

I thought I would share some inspiration on throwing a Batman Party……….


Pop Roc Parties Blog | Beau's Batman Party Table

I have always loved Batman, I have such fond memories of watching the 1960’s tv series with my dad and brother as a child.  Which actually inspired Beau’s Batman 5th birthday party that I threw last year!

Pop Roc Parties Blog | Beau's Batman Party Set Up

I have curated a Batman Party collection on the website in a black, white and gold colour scheme

When planning a party once you have decided on a party theme choose your colour scheme I usually pick 2-3 colours plus a metallic accent colour like silver or gold.

Pop Roc Parties Blog | Beau's Batman Party Table Setting

Our batman mask doubles as a party table setting decoration and party favor the kids can take home!

Our gold foil letter balloons spell out NA NA NA which was the perfect simple backdrop for this theme

If you can set up the table and backdrop the day before the party that gives you a chance to play around with where everything is going to be placed and what food will go on what dish.  Pop a post-it note on the dish of the food that will go on it so if anyone is helping you, you can easily direct them to set up the food on the table.  I have to admit that I actually didn’t plan it out to well for this party I just thought I would wing it so there are so many things I would now tweak.

Pop Roc Parties Blog | Batman Party Balloons

Black foil number balloon + black marble balloons work in well for the monochrome colour scheme

A black perspex batman cake topper I had custom made by Love From Seventeen (which is available to hire) made the perfect statement piece for the simple birthday cake I made (sitting on our black milk glass cake stand)

A wee party flatlay of the party items, I loved keeping the colours monotone but working in patterns of the products to keep the table setting interesting.
I used a black stripe napkin paired with a marble hexagon shaped paper plate, mini milk bottles with black chevron paper straws.

I served chicken nuggets and hot chips (Beau’s favourite) in our noodle boxes

In keeping with the marble I made these marble fondant sugar cookies using our batman cookie cutter.
These cookies were actually easy to make, here’s a link to making sugar cookies.  You can make sugar cookies a week in advance (they last for so long and I love being able to make things earlier, the less you have to make the day before right!) and the fondant can be done a couple of days earlier.  Here’s a link to making the marble fondant and you can attach the fondant to the cookie with apricot jam.

Batman sugar cookies packaged in our long cello bags tied with black 12 ply bakers twine for take home party favors.

The sugar cookie batch makes so many cookies, these were a cheap addition to the party favors

Black chevron paper straws in our mini milk bottles for the adults, each child had a bottle on their table setting.

Old fashioned lemonade served in our mason drink dispenser, these dispensers are such a great size and I always pop mine on a whitewash crate (upside down) so there’s enough room to place a cup or bottle underneath without having the dispenser on the edge of a table.

I make up homemade lemonade (or a punch without the lemonade) a day before the party and store it in the fridge in recycled plastic bottles so the day of the party I can easily give someone else the job of placing ice and the drinks in the drink dispenser!

Pop Roc Parties Blog | Batman Party Food Platter

Always have food to serve adults, I created this platter of Oreo marshmallow sandwiches, sausage rolls (extras from the kids food) seeded crackers I made with brie and Magnolia Kitchen chocolate macarons.  This platter was placed on our coffee table away from the party table.



When planning a party I always start with creating a pinterest pin board, I pin my favourite ideas and products I want to use so I  can see everything together just like creating a mood board and I can link back to ideas like DIY marble fondant closer to the time.  I always find there is some great idea I have forgotten about but its on my pin board to remind me.

Beauman Party – FEATURED PARTY!

Table spread

I spotted Hiedee’s Beauman (Batman) party on Instagram when she tagged me in her photos featuring some of our party supplies.  I have to say I get so excited every time I see what our customers create with our products!

Party room

I can’t believe my batman obsessed mini has turned 3.  When Beau said he wanted a batman party, I immediately cringed as my strong aversion to licensed characters kicked in.   As I replied “sure I can do that”, my brain was working overtime at how I could create the ultimate batman party for my little super hero a fun and classy affair.  And not cost a bomb!


I’m a handmade lover and DIY addict, so this challenge was right up my alley.  Being a small business owner and a single mum, I’m pretty time poor.  So I recruited my two minis to help.  They had many project playdates with mum!  The invitations were hand stamped, the party bags were made from black and white striped paper bags and we stamped batman onto sticker paper, cut them out and stuck them on the front. 

Batman brooches

They contained the usual loot plus a handmade fabric covered button batman brooch for the party goers to wear. 


Piñatas – well they’re a pricey affair!  So I decided to make my own and kept it pretty simple.  I purchased a $2 paper lantern, reinforced the bottom with cardboard and let the kids loose with the glue gun and glue sticks covering it in layers of crepe paper.  The top layer was fringed crepe paper and the bat mask I cut out on my cutting machine – total cost $4.50!

Party bag stacks

Party bags

I made food boxes for the kids – I love this idea as clean-up is a cinch and there’s minimal waste as the kids can take the boxes home. 

Batman lunch boxes

The boxes were filled with my idea of party food – fresh berries, popcorn, mini sandwiches, a couple of marshmallows and a batman biscuit. 


The drink bottles were from my collection of glassware – to dress up the drinks we stuck a bat mask sticker on them and popped in a black and white straw. The perfect drinking vessel for any superhero! 

Drink bottles

I’m not going to lie, I’m a total foodie, a true lover of baking and cooking. 

Adult food

The menu for the adults included a gorgeous spread of lamb and rosemary sausage rolls, feta and red onion tarts, apricot and white chocolate slice, fresh berries and passion fruit.   Leftovers – minimal!


The cake I kept pretty simple – it was just a two cake high chocolate mud cake iced with chocolate icing.  The paper cake topper I made using my cutting machine (scissors work fine too) and the cake wrap I stitched up in a jiffy using striped black and white fabric and binding.  Incredibly easy and cheap as chips.

Beau and cake

Decorations – we decorated our living space with bunches of black and white balloons and a couple of black honeycomb paper balls for over the table.  Total cost $10. 

Gotham City

And no batman party would be complete without Gotham City.  My dad spray painted a massive cardboard box black and I used yellow washi tape to make the outline of the buildings.  The batman symbols were free downloadable templates.  The super heroes truly loved zooming in and out of our handmade Gotham City.

Suspender shorts

And finally, no party of mine is complete without a Bean Sprout handmade outfit for the birthday boy.  Beau’s black and white grid suspender shorts fitted in nicely with our colour theme and he looked oh sooo dashing!

Parties don’t have to cost a bomb!  Make sure you plan ahead and if you have the time, find your inner crafting self and have a go at DIY.  Get your kids to help – what kid doesn’t love being a party helper?  There really is no better feeling than looking back and thinking my kids and I made all that!

Maisie and Beau

Proud mum moment

Thanks so much Hiedee for sharing Beauman’s Party!!

Halloween Table 15

When I plan a party I always start with what inspires me and key products/props I want to use

Halloween Shot 15 Left Table Side

With this party I started with the monochrome sugar skull banner, mini skull balloons and our white shadow house boxes (only available to hire)

Halloween Shoot Shadow Boxes

I tied in the orange of the mini Jack o’ Lantern buckets with the cheese balls in our round compotes, candy corn in the ice cream tubs and cute mini pumpkin candy

The mini skull balloons worked perfectly on balloon sticks (cut down shorter) in our ball pint jar

I made spider web sugar cookies to tie in with the spooky food, these cookies last ages so they are great to prepare before a party and to give as a favor

Monochrome Halloween Ice Cream Tubs

The kids and I decorated these cute ice cream tubs to store candy in

Monochrome Halloween Bucket of Teeth

When I have an upcoming themed party Crazy Candies is always my go to and these vampire teeth lollies in our mini buckets are so yummy!
