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!

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.

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.

Teddy Bear’s Picnic

This month on Moomookachoo’s magical calendar I choose ‘Teddy Bear Day’ to celebrate by having a simple teddy bears picnic afternoon tea

September 2015 Magical Days Calendar FeatureI love the opportunity to theme something special for the kids.

And inviting friends over and throwing a wee picnic in the backyard is a fun way to break up the school week

Teddy Bears Picnic 2

I gathered a few items from our hire collection (picnic mat, white wash crates, those cute enamel bowls, pink flower grass mats), the kids teddy bears, jasmine from the garden and Sophia’s Noah & Bowie bear blanket


Whitewash crates are always fab as a prop


On the menu was banana milk which I thought would look pretty with the lavender, Tiny teddy cookies, gummy bears, cute lotte koala cookies, Delmaine apples tarts for the textural picnic look and cassava chips
