For the kids in PB's classroom to help celebrate his special 10th birthday, I brought in themed cupcakes...
Like I mentioned in the last post, there is going to be a lag in posting the rest of the party for up to 2 weeks, but it will be worth it!

PB just turned 10!!!
The chosen party theme this year was Vintage Comics and Super Heros.
PB saves all his money and buys 1940-60 comics on ebay along with reading and checking out information from the library on the subject...he even has invented his own super hero called "Bugman", who stars in the comics that he writes and draws himself. He watches the original "Adventures of Superman" with George Reeves on a daily basis. You may remember his brush with a Superman celebrity here.
A 10th Birthday Party kinda has to be a "Kapow!" anyway so through a series of several posts I will cover all of the aspects!
Starting first with the invitation.
I had the idea to make it like the fun membership club packet that kids would have gotten in the mail during the 50's-60's.
I bought brown envelopes and glued copied images on the front. The address section was a copy of an club order form from a vintage comic.
Inside was all the items that would have come with a real membership. I found images of a membership card, button, certificate, official letter and both sides of a Supermen decoder.
I typed the names of the "members" on the cards and certificate with our old typewriter for more authenticity. I laminated the cards and the buttons. The decoder was double sided with all the codes inside.
The letter was the actual invitation announcing the child's membership and the first "meeting" was to be birthday boy's 10th celebration. I included a "P.S." in Krypton Code 9 stating they should start thinking up their superhero name and powers.
The letterhead was a cropped image from an image of the original.
I will try my best to include images for all the things I made for the party either on MHICTY or check on my Pinterest Board:

As some may know, the first couple of months of the year is my planning and prepping time for PB's birthday party so posts become very visual and short on words. I do like for us all to play "Caption This" on images I put up so watch for those!
Enjoy a few vintage birthday party images and invites for the time being!
Out of paper hats? Just put a brown paper bag on yer noggin' and keep the candles contained!

We made a reservation back in October for the SCi-Fi Dine-In Theater restaurant for our recent trip to Disney Hollywood Studios! It was so cool! Eat in a car, Pulp Fiction style while the big screen shows clips and trailers of old B movies!!!!
The sound was piped through, of course, on vintage movie speakers!
I highly recommend this place! I would go to this restaurant all the time if it was "real".
Last year we went to the 50's Prime Time Diner in Hollywood Studios, which was super cool too!
