This year’s birthday theme was Lego Batman,and it was the funnest parties I’ve planned yet! Although it was a challenge to find Lego Batman-specific decorations and the like, it forced me to be more creative, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. And, everything got rave reviews from the kids…which is the most important part, isn’t it?
One of the funnest aspects of planning this party was coming up with creative food labels. I knew I wanted to do a candy bar this year, so candy-themed Batman names were the challenge. We started with Two-Face pretzels. Here, I used Flipz chocolate covered pretzels, melted down some white chocolate candy melts and dipped half the pretzel in. Tada! Two-Face Pretzels!
Next was Joker’s dynamite, because everyone knows Joker likes to blow things up, right? I designed the labels, which are available in my Etsy store. Keep an eye out for a tutorial on these in the next couple days!
Next, we had Poison Ivy vines, which consisted of Sour Punch straws. Easy, peasy!
And what Lego party would be complete without some Lego gummies. These were the most time consuming part of the planning process. I purchased the gummy molds from Amazon, and took a cue from SFHandyMan over at Instructables on how to make these fun candies. I also found some fun hard Lego candies that are actually buildable bricks as well. These were purchased on Amazon as well, and were a HUGE hit. Everyone loved eating and playing with these (even the adults)! The candy bar also featured black, yellow and blew sixlets and some candy coins, all purchased at Party City. The building-shaped candy holders were from Oriental Trading Company.
I also purchased some fun Lego masks, superhero masks and bracelets from Oriental Trading as well. I love that place!
The treat bags featured a Lego Bat Symbol, which I made. I plan on including a tutorial on that in the coming days as well, so check back!
And finally, the cupcakes. Just simple white and chocolate with yellow powdered sugar icing. The wrappers were purchased at Hobby Lobby and the toppers were designed by me. You can purchase the printable version at my Etsy store!
