Sometimes it can be hard to decide what to do for a spouse or partner’s birthday party. You’ll want to treat them on their big day but how do you make it special?
Well, if there’s a Marvel fanatic in your life then you could really make their day by leaning into that passion. You can tailor the whole day to match a theme that they’ll love – starting with a meaningful birthday card for him, her or whomever, extending into a full day of fun, and bringing to life the excitement of the comics and cinematic universe. If your partner is a big kid at heart, it’ll be perfect.
The best place to host a birthday party will depend on the time of year and what sort of weather you can expect on the day. If you have a garden with plenty of space, that’s an ideal choice for the summer months – especially if you’re leaning into the ‘young at heart’ vibe that a Marvel-themed party supports – but if you’re worried about rain, cold or even just having room for everyone then you could hire out a hall which could fit dozens of friends, family and colleagues.
You’ll want to ensure that the Marvel theme is communicated as early as possible – if your partner’s friends have a similar love for the MCU then that’ll get everyone as excited as they are! Try to incorporate the vibe into your invitations, whether you want to make physical ones or use a digital service to create cool invite designs.
Decide whether the guests will be asked to come in costume as their favourite characters, or simply to incorporate some kind of Marvel touch into their outfits. You could also suggest a Marvel theme for all gifts to tie together the whole day.
If your party is going to be in fancy dress then a photobooth – whether professional or homemade – could be a great way to celebrate all those amazing costumes! Stock it with Marvel and other superhero props with a fun backdrop to recreate key scenes.
When hosting your party locally or at home, consider picking up handmade decorations or supplies from local crafting stores. Experiment with a colour scheme that matches your partner’s favorite Marvel comic, show or film.
It’s a no-brainer to have a big screen or two playing some of the latest and greatest Marvel movies and series on Disney+ – whether you have them on mute for background effect or turned up loud for a dedicated movie night.
To recreate the epic vibe of the big-screen adventures for your party guests, you can set up a speaker system and put on a playlist featuring some of the incredible music from the MCU. Make sure to keep the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack in your back pocket for later in the evening when people want to start dancing!
