My nephew recently turned six and my sister was the mastermind behind an amazing black and white, super classy Batman party. She even had a fantastic Batman Birthday Boy baseball tee made for him with his name and age on the back! Check out all the deets for the party below.

We hosted at Chick-fil-a for no cost, but you could really host at any place that works for you. CFA worked well because we were able to reserve a section and have tables blocked off, and we were able to fully make use of the playground, as well. That's all some six year-olds needed: food, cake, and a playground. No need for anything fancy.

(PS. Anything with a * below was purchased at Dollar Tree!)

For the tablescapes:

Plastic tableclothes (black & white) *
Laminated Batman placemats
Large black paper plates (square) *
Small black paper plates (round) *
Black plastic flatware *
Black & white paper straws *
Plastic Batman cups
Paper Batman masks 
Plastic cutout bats
Yellow vases (filled with black sand) * - topped with Batman & Joker character figures
Cape on the back of each chair

For the wall decor: 

"6" mylar blow-up balloon *
"NA NA NA" mylar blow-up balloons
DIY Batman mask banner (created with only felt and twine)
Several helium-filled latex balloons (black & white)

Cake table:
Black & white sheet cake - homemade stencil & edible glitter for the Batman symbol
Framed printed graphic *
Stuffed Batman plush to hold a few balloons

For the goodies table:

Cityscape created with foam board and yellow duct tape *
Plastic cutout bats
Paper popcorn boxes with printed Batman stickers
Goodies - slap bracelets, pencils, masks, bubbles, finger puppets, beads, rubix-style cube (all Batman-branded except masks and beads)

My sister purchased nugget trays, tea, and lemonade and we served the kiddos. The cow came out (dressed in a cape!) after lunch. It was honestly such a big hit, and definitely a budgeted party. I don't have kids of my own, but I do believe most kids are pretty easy to please. I feel like so many parties are thrown for the parents to try to one-up others, but kids just want to hang out with their friends, have some cake, see a giant cow, and play on the playground.

This was such a fantastic birthday party and props to my sister for all her hard work. I'm glad I got to help out with some of the little details.
