Keep the music simple but fun. Choose classic scores from superhero movies such as The Hulk, Captain America, and Iron Man and give it a “Gotham” feel.
Mini snacks such as cut-out tea-sandwiches make great finger food. Look for cookie cutters in shields, stars, and spiders to create these treats. (Get Eisen’s tips on how to decorate superhero cookies here.)
For Incredible Hulk-themed beverages, create trays of green ice cubes by freezing water with green food color, and wow guests as their clear citrusy beverages transform color before their very eyes.
As a parting gift, place a few Avenger designed cookies in a cellophane bag and close with a gold twist-tie -- your guests can enjoy the party for days to follow with these treats!
