"Superman stands alone. Superman did not become Superman, Superman was born Superman. When Superman wakes up in the morning, he is Superman. His alter ego is Clark Kent. His outfit with the big red S is the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kents found him. . . .
. . . .Those are his clothes. What Kent wears, the glasses the business suit, that's the costume. That's the costume Superman wears to blend in with us."
―Quentin Tarantino

Wording Your Invitations

Invitations are an important part of any celebration. It is the gateway through which you portray the theme to your guests. Besides, it sets the mood for the party as it gives the kids something to look forward to.
Personalized cards make it even better, especially if you have enough time on your hand. A picture postcard of your child dressed as Superman should suffice for an interesting invite.

Creating the Ambiance

Stick to the theme while recreating a Superman ambiance.
Hosting an early evening party will be more effective if you utilize your backyard for the same. Jumping jacks, trampolines, rope bridges can be used effectively to create a realistic ambiance for kids to run around and play. Alternately, you can use red and blue streamers along with balloons to do up the venue.
Old carton boxes can be wrapped in colored paper to resemble buildings and skyscrapers. You can use throw pillows to achieve the same effect when hosting the party indoors. Place glow sticks inside balloons to make the night sizzle and have the kids equally enthralled.

Setting the Table

Supermen and women need superfood to keep their energy levels high. So, take extra efforts to set the table right.
Use captivating tags to label your food, so as to find maximum takers for the food that is laid out. You can use the wall behind the table to portray a city scene. Stick to the theme with red and blue paper plates, glasses, and drinking straws.
You can alternately attach mini capes to the drinking cups to make things more interesting. Just make sure you place the table in a corner where the kids won't end up toppling the entire setup.

Satiate those Rumbling Tummies

No party is complete without tasty food doing the rounds.
To keep the hunger pangs at bay, you can couple healthy food with the not-so-healthy stuff. The platter can include popular kiddy foods like burgers, hotdogs, fries, cakes, tarts, and fresh fruits.
You can also have pancakes, chips, and interesting salads on the menu. You should remember, however, that the kids are going to be attracted to something that looks interesting, which is why, it is better to have catchy tags to each of the food item.

Recharge with Energy Drinks

Of course, Superman needs to be recharged with cooling drinks.
You can opt for a single juice dispenser serving what kids associate as liquid kryptonite, or you can invest in individual drink glasses or bottles. Ice cream, slush, and soda are all a part of the deal for a Superman-themed party.

Play, Explore, and Photograph

Birthdays with all the ambiance and setup form the right backdrop to take loads of pictures.
Get your camera out and click your superchild having fun with his/her friends. You can even have a cut-out of Superman so that kids can take a picture with their favorite superhero.
