Superhero Party Ideas

So many Superhero party ideas and so little time!  I mean really, there are so many Superheroes and groups of Superheroes like for example you have Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Iron Man and Captain America who are all great as a birthday party theme all their own.  Then, you have them join with other Superheroes and now there's X-MEN, Justice League, Avengers and so on, all of which are also great party themes.  

So before planning, it might be a good idea to check with your little one on exactly which Superhero they want for their birthday party. Although, I suspect they might have made this abundantly clear.

Then there's color schemes which can vary depending on the character and yet there are some colors that are good for most characters.  Primary colors of red, yellow and blue are the colors most associated with Superheroes. 


One of the easiest ways to pick your color palette is to look at the color on your party plates or cups.  This is also a great way to decide on balloon colors and additional decorations.

HOW COOL IS THIS?

This is so much fun!!  Use your own pictures, then add your own words (up to 10 words) and you get this super cool photo that you make yourself...AND it's FREE!

These are great for invitations, as a birthday gift or just for fun!  Even cooler is the fact that you have a bunch a editing features including fonts, background color, styles and much more than what we used for our Superhero pictures.

FREE Word Photo - Fun personalized photos, great for invitations and/or birthday gifts.



FREE Word Photo - Fun personalized photos, great for invitations and/or birthday gifts.

To make these fun photos you will need a smartphone.  First have the picture you want to use ready on your phone then download the free App "WordFoto" by bitCycle Ab. Once you open the app, upload your photo.  Then click on the "T" (at the bottom of screen) and select "Add new Word Set".  Now you're ready to add words.  After you add your first word, click on the "+" on the top right hand corner, this will give you a new box for another word.  You can choose up to 10 single words, so if you want "Happy Birthday", you have to put "happy" on one box and then birthday on another box.

We made a quick change on the same photo just to show you one of the features.  The 2 pictures below are exactly the same photos as above except we changed the background color.  Depending on your background color, your words will show more or less.  Notice the bottom left corner of all 3 images.  See how you can't see the words in the picture above?  That's because the picture above has a black background and the words on the left are black.  

Also notice that the placement of the words change every time you make a color change so we suggest you decide on color first then click on the big "T" symbol that says "words" and then select your set of words (that you made earlier).  If you don't like the placement just repeat the process and you'll get a new look because the words move around randomly.  CAUTION:  This can get very addicting!

If you see a pattern of words that looks good with your picture, SAVE IT!!  You can save it to your photo library on your phone or email it to yourself so you can use it (we did both).  Then you can continue to play around with all the features but your picture is saved.
