Real Customer’s Parties-Nathaniel’s “Amazing Spiderman” Party

Today’s real customer party is brought to you by a sweet customer Diana, author of the blog

Their “Amazing” cake:

Here is the invitation we created for the event:

And so many other adorable ideas:

Here are the details in Diana’s own words:
Nathaniel begged everyday for six months to have a Spider-Man party for his third birthday. For the first part of the year, I was planning a pirate party but I had to dismissed all those ideas when his obsession to Spider-Man just went out of this world. I wasn’t very thrilled about hosting such a commercialized character so I did most of the party details on my own. It also helped that I was able to play with my early Christmas present: the Silhouette Cameo!

I want to give a shout out to my family for helping! They helped so much during their quick visit. And with that, I think the best decision I made about this party is hiring someone else to bake the cake. So far, I have made all of Nathaniel’s birthday cakes but I knew I wanted something better than my cake skills can do. And since we had family visiting, I didn’t want to spend the entire day stressing about the cake when I should be spending time with them. Not making the cake also allowed me to focus more on the party details. And in the end, all my guilt about not making the cake quickly went away as soon as I saw the amazing Spider-Man cake. Laura’s Sweet Creations did an amazing job executing our vision for the cake!

Real Party: Batman vs. Superman

Today we are sharing some photos from a customer’s real party.  I am hoping to share real party photos from time to time here on the blog.  If you are a customer and have photos from your party to share, we would love to feature them. Just email me at

Katerina had me customize our Superhero Comic Book Invitation for a birthday party for two boys, Niko and Mikee.  Here is the invitation featuring the boys in their superhero gear:

The overall theme of the party was Superman vs. Batman.  Some kids got Superman capes and some kid got Batman capes.

It looks like lots of fun superhero competitions between the two teams of heroes commenced.  Look at this great web obstacle:

I absolutely love some of the food shots.  Check out these adorable lime green rock candy sticks labeled “Kryptonite”:

And this giant skyscraper cupcake stand:

How cute is that?They made adorable posters with the names SuperNiko and BatMikee

Looks like a fantastic time.  There are so many more great ideas in the details if you look closely.  Thanks so much to Katerina for allowing us to help out with her party design and sharing her photos with us!
