Who loves MARVEL’S The Avengers: Age of Ultron?  I do!  My family hasn’t missed a single Avengers movie and we all have our favorite superheroes.  Don’t tell anyone, but mine is Black Widow because she’s a girl and she’s one tough cookie!  

To get caught up and to reacquaint myself with the previous Avenger movies,  I hosted a

MARVEL Avengers Dress-Up Viewing Party this past weekend!

It was a dark, rainy night – perfect weather for an Avengers movie marathon.MARVEL Avengers Dress-Up Viewing Party

Just in case you don’t remember the movies that came before MARVEL’S The Avengers: Age of Ultron, here you go!

  • Iron Man 1, 2 & 3
  • Captain America 1 & 2
  • Thor 1 & 2
  • The Incredible Hulk
  • The Avengers

Sometimes planning a party can be hard work, but I was excited to find every single item I needed for my Avengers Dress-Up Viewing Party at Walmart!  Not having to run all over town was such a relief! Be sure to check out the toy department, grocery area, party supplies, and the electronics.  I found the favors for the adults in the check-out area, but more about that later.

Avengers Dress Up Viewing Party

I had 2 food stations for the buffet and since my dress-up viewing party was casual, I made a balloon garland to add some texture and color to my backdrop.  You don’t need helium for a balloon garland and it didn’t take long to blow up the balloons.  I figured out how much twine I would need and how I wanted to space the balloons, then I tied the neck of the balloon with the twine, pulling one end of the twine all the way through each time.  The balloon garland added lots of color to the tablescape.

I planned my menu with The Avengers in mind.  Here’s what I served:

  • “Pop”Arazzi Popcorn
  • Black Widow Blackberry Shortcake
  • Thor’s Cupcapes
  • Avengers Cheez-It Antipasto Platter
  • Captain America PB&J Stars
  • Sugar Cookie Shields
  • Thor’s Hammer (watermelon cubes with colorful picks)
  • Smashing Pistachio Pudding Parfait
  • Incredible Hulk Punch
  • Tony Stark’s Wheels (mini powdered doughnuts)
  • The Avengers edition Doritos, Cherry Dr. Pepper & Fruit Snacks

Smashing Pistachio Pudding

My easy Smashing Pistachio Pudding representing The Hulk was the hit of the night!  Who knew something so simple to make would be the favorite?

DIY Photo Booth

As my guests arrived, they were encouraged to whip out their camera phones and snap a few photos at my make-shift photo booth.  I taped a poster to the wall and added a few props, including The Hulk Smash Hands Fists, Iron Man’s Laser Gloves, Captain America’s Shield and assorted Avenger masks.

Once everyone had a plate of food, we made our way into the great room and settled in to watch The Avengers.  I had plenty of seating, but most of the kids preferred the floor.

Besides watching the movie, I had an Avengers Lego building area.  The younger kids really enjoyed putting the Lego’s together and pretending they were part of the movie.

To make the night even more interesting, I awarded door prizes (Avenger movie DVD’s and toys) throughout the evening.  It was a joy to watch the faces light up (kids & adults!) when prizes were won.

Party Favors

After an evening of fun, the adults went home with The Avengers travel coffee mugs and the children left with plastic cups filled to the brim with all things Avengers.  The adults were as excited as the kids when they realized they had a take-home favor, too! As one family was walking out the door, I overheard a little boy say, “Can we do this every week?”

This is seriously adorable! You went all out! I love all of your decor and party food ideas! I must admit, I’ve never seen the movies, but I’m sure I will at some point as Hampton grows up and starts to notice them. 🙂

Now THAT is an awesome party idea. The first Avengers movie is on tv all the time now and we literally watch it every single time it’s on! We love the Avengers!

What a fabulously fun party for children and adults too! I’m ashamed to admit that I have not seen any of the movies. I didn’t realize there were so many. My hubby would love an Avengers movie marathon at our house and a rainy weekend (we seem to be having a lot of those) is the perfect time! You made it seem fun, maybe I’ll cave in and watch.

This is such a great idea for the little ones, and maybe the older ones, too! What could be better than watching a super hero while BEING a super hero!

My husband has been collecting Captain America stuff since he was probably still in the womb thanks to his dad. You should see our barn , attic and basement. We could open a small retail store. His man cave is wall to wall, floor to ceiling Captain America.

what a fun time! My eldest and I have spent the last several weeks watching all of the movies in the series, because I had never seen them before, except for the Iron Man movies, of course. *swoon* I love that you gave prizes to even the adults! I’m with the little boy who asked, “Can we do this every week?”

Holy crappola, you went all out! I love your snack options in particular and the massive array of colour youv’e got going on- this is so, so well done and your photos are gorgeous! Great job 🙂
We saw the movie yesterday, as I think it came out a bit earlier than it was supposed to for the first car load night at the drive in here in Canada. yay! ^_^
It was absolutely fantastic- just as good as the first one, although not quite as funny.

Wow, your party looks amazing! How fun! We can’t wait for the new Avengers movie too. Maybe I’ll have to do a mini version of your party for my kids 🙂
