Over the last fourteen years of my career, I’ve had a pretty successful go at designing and producing events for a growing list of big clients and A-list celebrities…
I’ve really got to hand it to her, Cari gave me a run for my money with her ULTIMATE Super Friends Action Hero birthday party design.
First off, she totally nailed it in terms of selecting an age-appropriate theme. Then, she sent out invitations that created an exciting storyline for the party: “The villainous Mr. Freeze has stolen everything cold, and because it is HOT and HUMID in Texas, all the Super Friends gathered to combat his evil plot!”
Each one of my nephew’s friends was assigned a Super Friend to come dressed up as for a scavenger hunt around the neighborhood, where Mr. Freeze’s henchmen (AKA all of the kids’ Dads!) were ready to destroy their attempts.
Fun clues led to different stations where chilly rewards awaited the Super Friends gang if they were able to overthrow the Henchmen for VICTORY!
The rewards were frozen drinks, water balloons, squirt guns, and yummy popsicles. Plus, each kid got their very own commemorative t-shirt with the party’s logo:
But the coolest (literally) reward came in the form of a giant inflatable water slide!
All in all, I’d say her party was a HUGE success and something my nephew and his friends will remember fondly.
If you have children, let me know which party themes have been your kids’ favorites over the years. If you don’t have kids, I’d love to hear about the BEST birthday party you can remember from when you were a child. Let me know in the comment section below.
