I’ve been known to go a little cray-cray putting together my kids’ birthday parties (see here, here and here for evidence of my craziness), but this year I was just too busy so I opted for a semi-DIY Batman Birthday Party.
The key to making the party feel Batman-esque was to stick to a color palette. Initially, when I’d put together my Batman Inspiration Board, I thought I would go with a black and grey scheme, but as things developed I opted for a black, yellow and blue scheme. Switching out the colors helped to punch up the decor and gave me more options with store bought items. The Batman cookies were from here. The bunting and birthday banner were from here. While I usually make cupcakes our local super market had a deal that I couldn’t say no to, so I bought the cupcakes and topped them off with DIY cupcake toppers.
I could have bought all Batman plates, table cover etc, but I felt that it was better not to overdo the theme. Instead, for the table I opted to create a cityscape with items from here and here. I particularly love the tall tower. It’s so cool and took less than 1 minute to assembleand made a big statement.
For games we had a scavenger hunt, a Batman themed bouncy house and of course, a piñata.
Right about now you must be wondering, “what did she DIY?” I made same DIY Batman flashlights and DIY Batman party favor goodie bags.
The flashlights were from a local dollar store. The Batman printable is from here. The design was originally intended as a candy wrapper, so I shrunk the design to suit my purposes and added the words “Bat Signal”.
I bought simple black party favor bags and embellished them with a DIY thank you tag printable which I made.

By mixing DIY and store bought items I managed to create a Batman Party that felt personalized, but most importantly it was a party our little Monkey LOVED.
