Spiderman Birthday Party: Part 5, Food & Drinks

This is the fifth in a whole series of posts about my son's Spiderman Birthday Party Extravaganza!! Click here for Part 1: Theme and Invitations, Part 2: Dessert Table, Part 3: Games and Activities, and Part 4, Decorations. Stay tuned for Part 6: Party Favors, Part 7: Daily Bugle Staff.

Note: If you're joining us from Amy Atlas, please read on for many more details.


In addition to all the sweet treats covered in Part 2, I made “refueling lunch packs” for the little Spider Children, complete with juice, crackers, fruit snacks, spider-sandwiches, and strawberries and blueberries, and had “refueling fluid” a.k.a water flasks (embellished with spiders and nutritional labels). The water flasks doubled as one of many party favors that the children took home. We also had red and blue snow cones and old-fashioned red soda (for the older children and Daily Bugle staff). For the adults, we served spinach dip and spider bread, Doctor Octopus tentacles (penne pasta), salad, and Green Goblin punch. The beverage tubs for the beer and wine said “With great beer/wine, comes great responsibility…please drink responsibly.” The adults at this party had about as much fun as the children!
























Yum!

    1. I made the popcorn boxes using my electronic cutter, but you could buy them online from orientaltrading.com or party city sells them too.

      The popcorn was from a gourmet popcorn shop in town, but you can buy online from various vendors, or make it yourself--just follow a caramel popcorn recipe and add food coloring.

    1. The marshmallows are just store-bought marshmallows, barely dipped in water just to make them sticky, then rolled in sugar sprinkles. Super easy!
