1. Decorations

Capes on chairs. Building in sky backdrops because superheroes like to fly. Sound effect signs — kaboom, pow, pop, whammo. Masks, colorful costumes, logos, faces. For decorations, there is a lot to work with when throwing a superhero party. There are bright, intense colors, striking outfits, and masked identities. Many like to have the feeling of being larger than life, as many superheroes are, quite literally with a miniature cityscape decor. Some like to feel like they are flying through the air in front of a clouds backdrop. Others prefer the heroes themselves: large bold logos, their faces plastered everywhere! But for your traditional superhero party, no need to focus on one style or character. An action packed and bright colored effect is what you’re going for with the superhero party.
