WWYD?? birthday party

I'm having a superhero costume birthday party for everett. His favorites are batman and spiderman, but he's an expert on all of them. I can't find good party supplies that have ALL the superheros because they aren't all marvel. SO. . .would you buy a set of each superhero for dessert plates and napkins or would you just pick one and go with it?? I'm really torn here because he changes his mind about who his favorite it every couple weeks so I am afraid to buy something and him change his mind. I will use big generic paper plates for meal, and bold colored napkins for the meal, but the cake and ice cream I want theme plates/ napkins, invites and thank you cards.

I think it's a great idea to get dessert plates and napkins in several different character designs.

I would probably pick one but we dont' go through too many of those dessert plates for a party, maybe 2 packs tops. 4 or 5 packs is a lot of plates. You can do the picture plates too so maybe do one of a pic of EJ all dressed up.

It depends on how many plates you need. Since they usually come in sets of 8 if you need 16 then I would split the characters up. IE, 2 packs of plates (each different characters) 2 packs of napkins (each different characters). Then you can get cups of a different character if needed, and the goodie bags can be a 6th character. THAT WAY, "everyone" can be at the party and you won't be spending a lot more money Smile

Great idea or you could make the goodie bags (if you are doing them) and each guest would get a different character.
