BATMAN COMIC INVITATIONS - Start by removing several pages from various Batman comic books. Then Whiteout the words that appear in the comics' speech bubbles. Then make some color copies of all these pages. Lastly, write in the party details in the speech bubbles and mail them out to your guests.

BATMAN CAPE INVITATIONS – Make your own Robin or Batman shaped cape template, then trace the template on yellow and black cardstock, cutting out enough capes to have one for each guests. In the very center of each cape, write the first or last initial of your child in bold, large print. Write “Calling Cap Crusaders!” on the front of the invitation. Be sure to add party information to the back and then send out the invitations to Batman fans--guests.

BAT SYMBOL INVIATIONS – Use black cardstock and cut out the bat symbol. Take a silver gel pen and use it to write party information on the back. Add to a cool envelope and send it off to guests.

BATMAN BIRTHDAY PARTY PHOTOGRAPH INVITES – Take a piece of black cardstock (8 ½” x 11”), cutting it in half and then folding each piece in half again to make each of the invitations. Use a photograph of your youngster wearing a Batman costume and trim up the photo so it fits onto the invitations. If you want a little more visual appeal and to make the edges look nice, you might consider cutting the edges with some decorative scissors. Attach the photo with glue to the invitation’s front. Right over the photo, write, “Help Me Save Gotham!” Write out all of the party details on the inside.

Suggested wording for the invitation:

Holy Ice Cream and Cake, Batman
(Kid’s name) is turning (age) and
the Joker stole his Batman cake!
Grab your Batman cape and come
and help him defeat the Joker!

Finish off your invites by using Batman stickers to decorate the invitation.

EMBELLISH BATMAN BIRTHDAY PARTY INVITATIONS - Buy some ready-made Batman invitations and embellish with glitter.


You will of course want to invite your friends to come dressed in their favorite Batman character costume. Also, don't forget to remind them to and to bring their super powers to the party. As an alternative, as your guests arrive, turn them into Batman. In fact, you can make the transformation an activity for the kids to do at the party, or just go ahead and provide the various items upon arrival. Start with a black cape and add a black Batman emblem that is affixed to a yellow piece of fabric. Also hand out black Batman Masks.

  • Use yellow and black balloons and streamers to decorate the party ceilings.

  • Let little Cape Crusaders pass through doorways decorated with yellow and black streamers.

  • Tie back black sheets using yellow sashes, using them to decorate wide walkways.

  • Use black or yellow tablecloths on the tables, topping with fun toppers in the opposite color. Use yellow and black ribbons to tie off corners, scattering fun Batman confetti on the tabletops. Have fun using napkins, cups, centerpieces, plates and other party paper goods in yellow, black or the Batman theme.

  • Make some placemates for your table out of black posterboard or construction paper; make them into the shapes of bats. You can laminate them for added durability and hand them out as party favors.

  • Put batman balloons on birthday child's chair and black and yellow helium balloons on other chairs.

  • Using some fun Batman toys, create a beautiful centerpiece. Use tissue paper in yellow and black, as well as some helium balloons to finish the centerpiece.

  • Hang black and yellow streamers throughout the party room. Cover the walls with black fabric.

  • To give your party room walls a lift, hang Batman wall decals. You can always repurpose them by placing them onto your kid's bedroom walls.

  • Hang a Batman birthday banner over your cake table or liven up a barren wall with the fun banner focal point.

  • Another option for giving those blank walls a Bat-lift is to hang some Batman posters throughout the party room.

  • Hang bats from the ceiling and off of the walls. Also add some cobwebs throughout using angel hair or use spider webs.

  • Using cardstock, create posters of Batman words to hang on the walls of the party area. Good ideas to use for the posters include sound effect words like “KABAM,” “BAM,” “ZOWIE” and “POW.”

  • For a unique wall decor or tablecloth, start out by having your local office supply store enlarge your Batman comic strips to a poster size or bigger.

  • Using some fishing line, hang up fun bat emblems (purchase them or make them yourself) from the ceiling.

  • Hang clusters of black, yellow, and blue latex balloons throughout your party room and attach coordinating curling ribbons.

  • Using butcher paper in black, cover up the front door, using yellow letters to write the phrase, “Welcome to Gotham!” To let guests know where the party is at, hang yellow and black balloons outdoors from the mailbox, a tree or your car.

  • Using chalk, draw big question marks in yellow along the sidewalk.

PENGUIN POPPERS – Chicken poppers or tasty pizza rolls.
