Justice League Birthday Party Decorations and Ideas
Here’s where you can really go wild with your Justice League birthday party – the décor for superhero parties should be nothing less than out of this world!
With so many characters and themes to choose from, attempting to incorporate them all might prove to be a challenge. So why not ask your little one who their favorite superheroes are? Narrowing it down to one or two will enable you to create a more coherent color scheme – for example, Batman is famed for his black and yellow sign, while Superman’s logo uses the primary colors (red, blue and yellow). Green Lantern’s motif is obviously green, while the Flash is distinguishable through his red and yellow logo.
For a real comic-book feel, these chair covers will tick every box (and they’ll keep your precious furniture clean if it all gets a little messy!). You can also string ‘POW!’ and ‘BOOM!’ signs up like bunting to add to the effect – kids will certainly feel like they’re in the comic book itself!
