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.

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.

How To Style Latex Balloons

I’m sharing some of my favourite ways to style latex balloons………

Latex balloons have been a party essential forever!
Not only are they a cheap party decoration they can be styled in so many amazing ways.

Black marble balloons + black latex balloons styled as a bunch and tied at different heights with fishing line onto a balloon weight.

Latex balloons can be filled with air or helium.
Sophia modelling her birthday balloons – a bunch of gold and white latex balloons by Kathleen.

PARTY TIP: I buy a helium tank from the warehouse (keep an eye out for when they go on sale) and fill my balloons up at home!  A $50 tank easily fills a number foil balloon and several latex balloons and can be stashed away for another party!  One tank will only fill two jumbo balloons!  You can also hire larger helium tanks from balloon shops if you have lots of balloons to fill.

Style latex balloons in bunches with a number foil balloon for a real statement or have a bunch on either side of table to balance the table visually.
(We have more black number balloons arriving in the next week)

I love how the black latex balloons are matt black, they look so cool with our gold number balloons!

For creating these Halloween balloons I wrote on our black balloons with a blackboard pen.

Decorate latex balloons with stickers.

I used vinyl wall stickers to decorate these pink latex balloons for Sophia’s Ice cream party.

Using balloon sticks instead of helium is a cheaper alternative and it also makes great party favors that children can take home their own party balloon!

Create  a simple balloon tail for jumbo balloons like Tarryn made for her sons party out of fresh greenery or our willow garlands.

I made these pretty glitter feather balloon tails for Sophia’s Swan Lake Party, you can find the tutorial on the blog.

We stock marble balloon packs in three colour ways: pink, blue and black.

We sell standard sized 30cm helium quality balloons in plain colours: nude, white, pink, red, orange, yellow, lavender, purple, blue, teal, green, black, silver and gold packs.

And nude, white, pink, blue, black, silver and gold jumbo balloons.

Nude standard and jumbo balloons are perfect for filling with our tissue confetti, anything heavier weighs down the helium.

PARTY TIP: Use a funnel to fill nude balloons with confetti, gently fit the neck of the balloon around the funnel and gently push the confetti through with a pen or pencil (I like to use the rubber end of a pencil)  When filling the balloon with helium do so slowly.

Here’s a guideline for filling balloons with helium.

If you are doing a baby shower gender reveal use our black jumbo balloons and the pink or mint tissue confetti to reveal your babies sex.

Tie nude helium balloons filled with confetti to chairs.

Create a balloon garland, here’s a simple video DIY tutorial by classy clutter.


PARTY TIP If your hubby has a compressor its quicker to fill them up instead of blowing them up by mouth.  If filling with helium make sure you fill them the day of the event
Using balloon weights is the perfect way to weigh down your helium balloons so they don’t float away!

Just to note, all balloons are temperamental and delicate they can be affected by heat.  When inflating balloons be careful not to tear the neck of the balloon, fill them too fast or too big.

The best thing about these foil script balloons apart from they look totally fabulous is that you don’t need helium to inflate them, just blow them up by air using the straw included in the packaging within a minute and they last for ages!
(These balloons do slowly deflate over time but can easily refilled again)

These self sealing mylar balloons come with holes in the tabs at the top of the foil script balloons to thread for hanging.  I love to use fishing line to hang my balloons to create that floating look!

Asher’s 5th Birthday – FEATURED PARTY!

I’m so proud to present Asher’s 5th birthday as one of our featured parties!

Thanks Sheena for letting me share x

Asher 5 BalloonTurning five is such a special milestone which we wanted to make very memorable.

With all the changes about to take place with starting school we wanted to make it really special.

Asher Balloons

Plus let’s be honest we also wanted to celebrate five years of parenthood to the son who made us parents. 

Ashers 5th Birthday Balloons

The party decorations were based around a star theme as he is our shining star.

I also made him a special piece of wall art with the quote ‘shine like the stars’ as a sentimental birthday gift. It was nice to tie this into the theme.

He had an amazing day with lots of laughter & fun.
