Super Mario Birthday Party

Just wanted to share some pics from my sons Super Mario Birthday Party we hosted this week! Last year we did a Legend of Zelda Birthday Party.

Here's what we did. First for some decor we got some gold star balloons from the dollar tree and made little construction paper eyes. There was one balloon for each boy at the party.

We also set up a Bowser Game station. Just a presentation board we had around the house. The boys took turns setting up games with the cups and ping pong balls.

My oldest son and I worked together to make this block poster from the original Mario game. And the boys took turns getting their pictures taken as Mario.

I didn't get pictures of this but the boys also played Boo Light Tag (hide and seek outside with a flashlight). It was a sleepover. The birthday cake was a 10-up mushroom. I'm still learning fondant but I think it turned out well.

The boys each went home with goody bags filled with Mario gummies and hard candies that we found at the dollar tree. I think the most we spent on the party was for the pizzas. The boys spent the rest of the time playing video games. Boy parties are so much easier. lol
