Julien's 5th birthday party and Charming Celebrations

A huge thank you to Charming Celebrations for helping my son have a terrific super hero party!

A few months ago I was looking for someone to help out with making some decorations and a banner for the party, and I was able to connect with Amber from Charming Celebrations on twitter.  We chatted a bit and she told me what she could provide, and we went ahead with the order.

All of the party goods arrived last Friday (I asked for them to be delivered by July 4th at the latest, and they came in on June 29).  They were packaged up in a box, and the items were wrapped in tissue paper - no damage to the items!

Included in our party package were:

- super hero banner (a mix of superman and batman)

- cupcake wrappers (we didn't have cupcakes, so I used these for the kids to play pin the superhero on a spiderman poster)

- cupcake toppers (again, no cupcakes, but we used them for clues in our scavenger hunt game - the kids loved it!)

- favor bags (we had 5 superman, and 5 batman)

- centerpiece items (two #5's, a batman and a superman, as well as some smaller ones with the bat logo and superman logo)

Amber was really easy to work with, and the items that arrived were great quality; I was impressed with the decorations and my son was happy with them, which was the most important part.

Julien and his friends had a lot of fun. When they arrived, the kids played outside in the backyard and on the playstructure for 20 minutes or so, then we came inside and did pin the superhero on spiderman (my nephew won that - so he got a kinder egg!). When that was done, the kids headed to the table and got to colour a superhero picture to take home (and thanks to crayola wonder, I had no mess on my table). When they finished colouring, we had cake

the Batman Cake I made for Jules - chocolate cake with a layer of vanilla ice cream in the middle

I think it is safe to say he likes the cake
and afterwards they went on a scavenger hunt.  They had to find clues, and the clues eventually led them to a treasure chest my hubby had built. Inside the chest was a whole bunch of loot, and they were able to choose what they wanted and fill their favour bags with them! This killed some time and the kids had fun. When they were finished filling their bags, they played in the backyard a little while longer until their parents arrived.

Don't forget to check out Charming Celebrations on Etsy, twitter and on Facebook!

  1. That cake is fabulous!! I will remember this company. They sound great. The party favours are so cute!!

    1. thank you - he saw it at baskin robbins, but when I found out how much it would cost for the size we needed - I asked them if i could just buy the toy....they agreed, and I went home and made him a home-made ice cream you can see by the picture, he was totally thrilled with it!

  2. Wow nice party! The party favours really added to it and I liked how you improvised using the cupcake toppers - good idea!

  3. Very creative! It looks like a fun time, and the decorations are awesome!

  4. WOW! Fabulous! I am going to have to remember the cake topper request idea. That would be a great way to save money and make a cake you love on your own! My husband would love the batman thing.... LOL I may have to make him a batman party for our wedding anniversary! LOL

  5. Those are awesome. :D She really did a great job and Happy Birthday to him! :D
