I don’t know about you, but my kids and family are huge MARVEL Avengers fans. And we’re not alone. In fact, tonight is OPENING NIGHT of the spectacular stage show MARVEL Universe LIVE and I’m taking the family to see it. So exciting! Check back this week for a recap of the show…you won’t want to miss this! Avengers-themed parties are one of the most popular party themes right now with both boys AND girly and today I’m going to share with you some MARVEL Avengers Party Ideas!
SET THE SCENE WITH MARVEL AVENGERS STANDUPS & TOYS!
I love hosting parties in my own home. I just love being able to take my time decorating the space and not have to transport any decorations to an outside party venue. Cardboard standups truly transform your home into a Marvel Avengers party like The Hulk, Hulkbuster, Captain America and Ultron. These standups are about 6’ tall, setup in minutes and really add a wow factor to your party space. My son just kept saying “WOW” every time he walked up to one of them. They also make great photo props too. My sister and brother-in-law had a blast dressing up like Black Widow and Thor! The kids thought it was HILARIOUS!
GIRLFRIEND TIP: Cardboard standups are a great way to decorate a venue’s party room since they only allow you to get into the room 15-20 minutes before your party starts. You can set up these standups in minutes and the wow-factor is HUGE!
Save some money and use toys that your kids already have to decorate the party space! I just displayed my son’s entire collection of Marvel Avengers Superhero Mashers toys and my nephew’s collection of Avengers action figures around the party space. These doubled as a party activity too as the kids played with these during the party.
USE A CARDBOARD STANDUP AS THE BACKDROP TO YOUR CANDY TABLE!
To add a wow factor to the Candy Table, display the 6’ wide Superhero Comics Standup City Scape on your table instead of a backdrop. It fits perfectly on a standard 6’ table and looks amazing with the Hulk and Hulkbuster standups on either side.
GIRLFRIEND TIP: Fill your candy table with a mix of store bought color-coordinated candy AND custom desserts!
Most party supply stores and online candy shops offers lots of candy in individual colors making it easy to order candy that matches your party’s colors. Here I focused on green, red and blue candy that matched most of the Avengers colors. I also added a few custom desserts like these amazing Avengers inspired iced cookies by Auntie Bea’s Bakery and some cake pops and chocolate covered OREOs by Sparkling Sweets Boutique. To make it easy for guests to take home all the goodies, be sure to place these lightning favor boxes inspired by Thor, on the table.
GET INTO CHARACTER & HAVE YOUR GUESTS DRESS UP IN AVENGERS COSTUMES!
I don’t know about your kids, but my kids LOVE to dress up in costumes of their favorite characters. Once they have them on, they immediately start acting out scenes from the Avengers. It’s super cute! Birthday Express has a great selection of Avengers costumes and accessories. Be sure to know your guest’s sizes before your party so you are sure to have one that will fit everyone. Each guest can take their costumes home with them too…the perfect party favor! Parents, you too can get in on the action. Order a few adult-sized Avengers costumes and host the party! Your kids will LOVE it!
SET UP AN AVENGERS FAVOR TABLE!
I love setting up a favor table with the favors displayed instead of tucked inside a favor bag or box. I mean, how cool do the Avengers Pez dispensers look displayed on the table! I also used the Captain America piñata as the centerpiece of the table already filled with candy so it’s ready to be strung up when you’re ready. These Avengers plastic buckets are perfect to give each guest to collect all the candy that falls out of the piñata. It’s also big enough for the guests to put the favors in too.
HAVE FUN WITH AVENGERS PARTY ACTIVITIES!
Avengers parties are all about fun and imagination. Once everyone arrives, they visit the Dress Up station and transform into Avengers and pose for the camera. Then it’s time to visit the MARVEL Superhero Mashers table where the kids mix-and-match their favorite Avengers characters into their own new superhero. They had a ball doing this. Next it’s time to eat at the Avengers dining table. This is when I put on a 30 minute episode of Avengers Assemble so the kids can watch it while they eat. End the party with a bang and send the kids outside to bust open the candy-filled Captain America piñata!
GIRLFRIEND TIP: For my parties, I usually start out with a coloring activity as guests arrive since not everyone comes at one time and coloring is a perfect activity kids can do by themselves while they wait.
I hope this gives you some inspiration for your next Marvel Avengers party.
