Our two favorite heroes are at war, but whose side will you choose? Let your guests decide by throwing your own Batman v Superman party. Full of colorful, heroic treats, this party will get you in the spirit for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Or, if your kids are still too young to see the movie, they can at least have a superhero cookie.

Poured into glass bowls, cereal makes for fun party decor as well as a tasty snack for guests. Cut up Batman and Superman cereal boxes and use the symbols to decorate the party table along with hero colored party streamers and action figures. Blue utensils wrapped in red napkins and yellow utensils with black napkins finish off the table’s color scheme.

 

Glass bottles look positively heroic, serving up Citrus Vitamin Water with a black Batman cape for bat-fans and blue Gatorade with flowing red Superman capes. Whichever beverage you choose, you’re sure to feel empowered with superhero spirit.

 

Grab and go snacks are a must for any festive party and popcorn mixed with yellow and brown M&Ms is the treat that Gotham deserves, while a mix with blue and red M&Ms gets rid of hunger faster than a speeding bullet.

 

Two of the most iconic symbols in comic book history, the Batman and Superman logos make perfect cookies for a party buffet. These sugar cookies are sure to give your guests the energy they need to fight the bad guys and take on the party games.

 

Candy dipped apples in Batman yellow and Superman blue are skewered with super sticks fitted with superhero logos. They look great on the party table and make for sweet take-home party favors.

 

Get your guests into the action by having them send a call out to their favorite comic book hero. Set out a craft table so they can make their own DIY super-signals using flashlights and superhero symbol cut outs.

After a day of food, fun and heroes, your guests will be ready to choose a side for the superhero battle of the year.
