Super Hero Birthday Party Inspiration

I'm in the process of helping a colleague plan a super hero birthday party for her twin boys who will turn three this year. One loves Spiderman, while the other loves Batman, so you'll see a mix of characters in my inspiration post.

I love the super hero concept because there is so much you can do with it. You have a great color palette of primary colors to work with as well as a mix of common patterns (e.g., stripes, stars, polka dots, etc.).

Decorations


Refreshments



Party Favors



Free Printables







This is a great theme for boys (or girls) that can easily be implemented due to its common color palette. Plus, there are so many super hero-specific paper goods, toys and free printables out there. You just have to do some digging. For additional ideas, visit my super hero birthday party Pinterest board.

A DIY Project to Celebrate the Best of 2013

This year has been one of great highs and, unfortunately, a couple significant lows. Taking the cake as the top highlight was my wedding. As a natural born planner, this was the moment I had been prepping for my entire life. After helping family and friends with their big days, I was so excited to finally have my own event. Excitement also came with marrying the boy I had been crushing on since our UK days in sociology class!

On the flip side, we unexpectedly lost my grandpa the week before our wedding. Words cannot describe the sorrow my family felt on the eve of such a momentous occasion. While this added an element of heartache, it also made me put aside stress caused by wedding details and focus on what really mattered - having our family and friends present for our big day.

The photos of our family, wedding party and friends are such special mementos of our day. These are the images I will cherish forever.

I recently partnered with Mill Creek Supply Co. to create a special frame design. This frame showcases a photo of my mom, husband, grandma and me on our wedding day.


Mill Creek Supply Co. creates unique frames from reclaimed barn wood. They gather materials from local Ohio farms and craft them into unique frames. I partnered with one of their woodworkers to design a barn wood frame with Simply Sarah Style flair. I have seen several variations of this frame at stores like Hobby Lobby and Kirkland's and knew I had to have one.

To create this design I used:

  • Burlap Ribbon 
  • Twisty Tie 
  • Decorative Broach
  • Mini Clothes Pin
  • Hot Glue Gun
