A VERY PINK SUPERGIRL PARTY… the decos

And finally the last photos of a very pink Supergirl Party!  In this post you’ll find the decos… 

This is what happens when one of your clever and creative sisters stays over the night before a party and adds her ‘extra touches’ to the props for the party activities.  Brilliant – thanks Clare!




Lots of bunches of roses collected from multiple gardens along with some of Clare’s artwork in various spots throughout the shed.  Love the  the soft feminine vintage chic meets retro cartoon girl power.


Although there is no full room photo, you’ll just have to imagine the inside of a large colorbond shed with all of our junk covered with old curtains and sheets, along with some beautiful bunting made by the clever Amy from Giggleberry and


some paper garlands (of course).


And I just couldn’t resist putting this photo in of a gorgeous superhero (nephew) at the photo booth*.

To see the rest of the photos from this very pink Supergirl party, you can see the food here and the party activities here.

* photo booth makes it sounds really fancy, but really it is just a sheet stuck up on a couple of old doors, with a child-made cotton ball cloud and some buildings, also child-made, made out of cereal boxes.

A VERY PINK SUPERGIRL PARTY… the food

I wasn’t sure if I’d ever get around to posting the rest of the Supergirl party posts if I didn’t just post the photos without words.  So, if you have any questions, just ask me in the comments section.  Here are the photos of the food…

A VERY PINK SUPERGIRL PARTY… the activities

Sorry it has taken me so long to post photos of the super fun and super pink supergirl party for the occasion of Frog’s 3rd birthday. As per usual, as I have far too many photos, I will need to break the party up into a few posts.  I am going to over indulge with photos.  Hope you don’t mind!  Let us begin with the activities…

On arrival guests could busy themselves with…

superhero coloring pages*

superpink playdough


decorating super masks and wristbands

putting on superhero tattoos
(not just for the kids)

getting dressed up as superheroes in the super-secret hideout

or having their photo taken in the “photobooth”

Then after we had all eaten we headed to the front yard for the ‘superhero challenge’.  

To prove they were a true superhero, they needed to
jump over tall buildings

crawl through tunnels 

knock over walls

and fly high in the sky 

to receive their superhero certificates and lollypops.


Then we headed back to the shed for the super ‘A’ pinata.**

Stay tuned for the next instalment of the supergirl party

* all artwork for this party including colouring pages, certificates, etc. was drawn by my talented and awesome sister, Clare.  Thanks Super Clare!
** I did have my doubts that all would come undone with this activity, but surprisingly (& thankfully!) no injuries occurred!

PREPARATIONS FOR A SUPER PARTY

At our house this week we’ve been ‘super’ busy making lots of
‘super’ props for the ‘super’ fun activities for Saturday’s ‘supergirl’ party.  
Pretty pink printable paper came from a mix of previous party printables and from these free printables!
We’re getting pretty excited!
Pinata made from a recycled pizza box, a recycled cereal box and some crepe paper!  Tutorial here.
Super lollypops inspired by this party & piñata inspired by this party.
What I am most proud of is the superhero outfit that I made for myself!

Made in about 10 minutes by cutting up an old skirt and sewing around the edges, moving the pocket and adding an ‘E’ & a mask from the scraps.  I was ‘super’ chuffed with my thrifty self. 
You’ll have to wait until next week for the party photos!

MY ‘SUPER’ CREATIVE SPACE… is it a bird? Is it a plane?


This week ‘Super Frog’ and I have been creating an especially Froggy* superhero outfit for her upcoming 3rd birthday party.  The outfit was completely inspired by this vintage supergirl party and the photoshoot idea from this vintage pink party.

- I used this pattern for the mask and used felt with fabric sewn over the top.
- For the armbands, I cut the toes off a pair of Frog’s socks with an extra slit on the side for her thumb.
- For the belt I used an elastic headband which amazingly was the perfect size for her waist and used felt & fabric again for the heart and letter ‘A’.
- Frog’s ever favourite superhero cape was made by her Aunty Lou who used this free pattern.

 Frog’s favourite thing at the moment is to dress up as a superhero and run around the house with her fist out in front of her.   


If someone dares tell her that she is ‘gorgeous’, ‘adorable’, ‘cute’ or any other form of endearment, they are promptly corrected with – “No I’m not, I’m super!”

 Frog has worn a superman costume to bed as pyjamas almost every night for at least 6 months and now she wears this one (minus the cape & mask). 

Frog’s favourite color is pink.  She is one of those children who refuses to eat or drink out of any bowl, plate or cup that is not pink.  It’s just one of those battles we’ve decided we’re OK with avoiding.  She chooses her own clothes (I wouldn’t dare!) and the outfits are inevitably pink.**

So we did not have much trouble at all coming up with a theme for her 3rd birthday party!  
Pink Superhero it is!

We had so much fun taking these photos for her party invitations.  A simple photo shoot in the backyard – an old doona cover*** hanging from the clothesline with an old wooden box and a piece of wood I found behind the shed that I quickly painted with chalkboard paint. 

Even her friends the chickens had to be a part of it!  
She put a pink cup of tea out for them especially!

  I took far too many and now I can’t choose which ones to use for the invitation!

 Frog kept asking to draw on the chalk board and when I finally let her, she drew the cutest superhero I’ve ever seen, or is that a ‘super’ superhero?

Joining in today with our creative spaces.

* Her real name is obviously not Frog, or she would have an F on her belt.
** This fascinates me!  Her older sister could not care less about color, or what she wore.
*** This doona cover was my first doona when I was a girl.  How vintagely cool is it now?!  Nicely ironed too you’ll notice ;) – we don’t go toooooo overboard!
