3 Ways to organise a budget friendly SUPER HERO party

3 Ways to organise a budget friendly SUPER HERO party

3 Ways to organise a budget friendly SUPER HERO party

1. Use a digital Invitation
It saves so much time when you start sending digital invitations to your guests. 

 

2. DIY your own cake.
You will save so much money when you bake your own cake or get one premade cake base from supermarkets. I baked my own cake + purchased premade icing to spread over. Here are some of the cake decorations I used:
 
  • Dr. Oetker's Giant Chocolate Stars
  • Dr. Oetker's Glamour + Sparkle 115g
  • 100's + 1000s
  • Smilies Icing Decoration
I used a super hero photo prop set from Kmart. Don't be afraid to go big and play around with height.

 

3. Organise several activities to keep the kids engaged.
We organised two activities for the kids: water guns + craft

Craft: We purchased PJ Masks Foam Characters from Kmart and Avenger's sticker fun activity case from Target

 

Hope this helped! Hope you have a fantastic Party! :)

Have fun!
