Ka-Pow! What a Party!
When you're turning 5, there's no better way to celebrate than with a hundred family members and friends...then throw in a 60-foot waterside, a balloon twisting magician, a face painter, tons of balloons, and of course some superheros! We turned a palatial San Marino estate into a whimsical primary-colored paradise for children, adults and superheros alike!
The Food and Beverages:
No one could have possibly starved! The clients requested an "all afternoon affair." Awaiting guest arrival was a selection of hearty hot and cold finger fare and a beverage bar. Lunch soon followed with a traditional carne asada barbecue. For kids of all ages, there were street carts stocked with hot dogs, blue cotton candy and snow cones...and then there was the cake! Partygoers gasped at the 2-foot tall, 3.5 feet long "cake version" of Gotham City with 3 kinds of cake.
Too many to list them all! Guests were greeted with a custom banner, then chalkboard hand-lettered signage embellished with themed elements helped them find their way around the spacious grounds of the estate as well as a timetable letting guests know what to expect and when. Must-do activities included a visit to the face painter and balloon twister as well as taking a swim in the pool. Hula-hoops, frisbees and bubble wands ran rampant and guests were encouraged to decorate their own superhero face masks--all of which were theirs for the taking.
Behind the Event:
We had a great time working with this family! It was so much fun to meet with the birthday boy and his parents and personally interview him about his own vision for the party. Our client has a spectacular backyard on 2 elevations. We custom-designed and installed a "superhero-blue" carpet at the base of the arced steps; turning the upper elevation into a stage while the carpeted area was for seating. This event perfectly rounds out our full-range of services from concept through execution and gave us the opportunity to show off the quality of our expert sources.
Tying it all together:
Mid-party, the superheros arrived to rounds of screams and applause! The pool side stage, banded by a custom "super hero" blue carpet created the perfect opportunity for kids to enjoy Batman, Superman, Wolverine in their custom show! Themed props mingled everywhere but the real hero of this event was one lucky little boy!
