There isn’t a kid I know who hasn’t marvelled at a Superhero and their incredible powers, and thanks to the talented folk at Pixar, Marvel, Disney and the like, Superheros have morphed beyond the traditional stereotypes, making them more appealing than ever to both boys and girls.
The best part? Superheros make great kids party themes!
Superhero Party Inspiration, Sweet Heavenly Events, Sydney
Not only is a Superhero party a popular theme for kids, it’s also popular with parents as it’s super easy to pull together. Take inspiration from the Superhero stylists and go beyond the primary colours with girly pastels or monochrome black and white, and insert some comic book fun with speech bubbles, city landscapes and monograms to create something special – maybe even your own Superhero! We’ve also included some traditional red/blue/white superhero partyware in this blog for you if you love the classic look!
As always – the items showcased are all from our wonderful network members that are also listed in our Directory section of our website!

POW! Do we have a party to share with you today from one of our Sydney based members Sweet Heavenly Events & Party Hire
