More Mario Stuff

Here are a few more things I put together for Mr. S.'s Super Mario Brothers theme birthday party:

I took some super basic dollar store party hats and stuck on some Mario stickers. Easy!
I printed some Mario images on printable sticker sheets and cut them out individually. Quick, cheap, easy, fun!


For the party favor treat bags, I did the same with some mini dollar store gift bags -- three for a buck!


Inside the bags were some Mario Brothers Halloween candies (available at the dollar store and I've seen them at my local grocer), Mario fruit snacks, some cube candies I found at the dollar store (I figured cubes would be fitting for Mario!), some dollar store bubble gum rolls (slapped some stickers on those, too), chocolate coins, and some glow sticks.
Simple, cheap, and very Mario!


Now, the cake! It's Mario's 25th birthday this year, so there are Super Mario Brothers figures available in stores. I bought a little pile of figures and then turned the cake over to my sister.
She created a Mario level, complete with Fruit Roll-Up pipes, banana Now&Later question mark blocks, and giant Smarties coins. And check the chocolate bar bricks!

I have just a couple more Mario theme things to share tomorrow -- including one of my favorite creations!

Geesh! There's so much pressure these days to put on handmade/crafty themed birthday parties for the kiddos- when do you find the time to create all these items? I'm nervously anticipating the day when Avery comes to me and wants a specific themed party- yikes!

It looks like your son had a fabulous time and I'm sure all his friends think you're the cooolest mom on the block :)

Can't wait to see what you're saving to show us tomorrow!

I totally thought after I scrolled down to the cake that it was going to say "And the cake? Well I bought that"! Great ideas just adding simple touches to the cake, looks great! What I love too is that this party is totally unique and much more afordable then a store bought party.

Hey, what store did you get the figures at? My little guy would LOVE a mario party, but I haven't seen any around....

Hi Nikki,

I got most of them at ToysRUs in a six-pack -- and then I found a few more individual characters at Walmart. :o) Good times!
