Super hero 4th birthday party in Berkeley
Our good friend, Lisa Jackson may or may not start to feel a little pressure from us. As her boys get older we just get more and more excited to see photos from each of their birthday parties. She continues to amaze us with her creativity, entertaining ideas that any kid would love (handmade capes for running & jumping around a playground?!), and her paper goods- they’re obviously something we always look forward to seeing.
Shall we start with the invites? How can we not- they’re so fun! Each invitation included custom tattoos with speech bubbles with expressions like “WOW”, “OK”, “YES”, and “COOL” instead of the usual “POW” and “BANG” expressions.
Lisa’s husband Nick handmade a building scene out of old cardboard boxes, tape, and spray paint as a backdrop for the photo booth. Each guest was encouraged to strike their best superhero pose in front of the buildings using an instant Fuji Instax camera. The guests could stick the photos into a memory book and jot down something for Lucas to read later.
For party favors, Lisa made custom (no sew!) capes for each of the kids so they could wear them on the day of the party. Obviously they wore them all to school the next day!
Kind of makes you want to be a kid again, doesn’t it? Lisa, we can’t wait to see what you plan next year!
