Captain America Civil War Party. It should come as no surprise that we love all things super hero in my house. My husband has boxes and boxes of super hero comic books and action figures that no one can touch. My oldest son has had super hero action figures from the time he could express that was what he wanted…and he is now a budding comic book artist. My youngest will only wear silly shirts or super hero shirts, and we have spent entirely too much money on super hero socks for this child to wear with his uniforms at school so he can still show off his super hero love. My other boys and I have grown to love the action and excitement super hero movies offer. So, when the Captain America Civil War movie was released in May, you better believe we were there on opening night. With the DVD and BluRay release today, we celebrated with a little party!
I used my Cricut to make most of the party decor, food tents, and favor tags. Cricut has the most awesome selection of Captain America Civil War print and cut images in Design Space, so it was simple to customize the party! The entire party is DIY, and can be done on a budget pretty easily. The only party decor I bought specifically for the party was the poster I used on the wall, the rest was DIY or something we already owned.
My husband helped me come up with fun food names and I went to work with my Cricut to make the food tents. I love that I could add the character image to each food tent and have it cut out around the character. Since the party was around dinner time, I served food that could double as dinner, dessert, and snacks. My kids love it when they come home after school and I have a movie viewing party set up for all of us! We served Falcon’s Boneless Wings, Hawkeye’s Fruit Arrow, and Vision’s Carrots for dinner. Dessert and Snacks were Team Stark and Team Captain Shield Cookies, War Machine’s Ammo, Ant Man’s Ants, Black Widow’s Spider Legs, and a homemade cake with action figures on top. (Bamboo skewers and tiny rubber bands held the characters on the cake) I cut the fondant with cookie cutters, and suck them on top of store bought sugar cookies with a tiny bit of cake frosting. The kids LOVED them! I used my Cricut to make arrows to attach to the bamboo skewers for the Fruit Arrows too.
Water bottles and party cups were embellished with Captain America and Iron Man print and cut stickers using my Cricut too.
I also used my Cricut to make the banner for the front of the table. Print, cut, and thread with twine. Literally, it is that simple! I did add the boys’ Captain America Shield to the banner too for a little more visual interest.
My kids fervently believe it is not a party without cake OR party favors. I found some fun Captain America Hot Wheels cars at the store, and grabbed them for a rainy day several months ago, so I pulled them out and added them to inexpensive favor bags. I used my Cricut to embellish small frisbee shields, and make favor tags for the bags.
