Super Mario Birthday

A what? Super Mario you say? Well... that's just.... super.


Why panic? I'm crafty. I can pull off a little Super Mario shindig... 2 days after returning from 2 weeks of vacation with a pile of laundry, no groceries, and a job to return to the day after. Sure. I'll just need a few supplies.

Luckily I had my sister and my husbands sister to pick up the slack for me and I just had a few details to rock out the night before... Speaking of rocking out, my sister-in-law made the most amazing cake for the small mister. The cake made the party... and was the only real "Super Mario" reference at all. Turns out all you need for a successful kids party is a bounce house and cool cake. My husband put up the bounce house and my sister-in-law created this:

Isn't she the craziest? I supplied the fuel (margaritas) and she went to town for hours... and for her first cake? Amazing! Thanks auntie!!

A few other things we made (I assisted with these guys!) Cupcakes baked into ice cream cones... the idea is for them to look like those little green pipes from the game... we added some "gold coins" and those flower things to the top, I think it worked.

My sister in law baked the star sugar cookies and then we had a little sugar cookie power icing happening at about 11pm. The two aunties and myself had these babies done in maybe 20minutes. I think they turned out pretty darn cute!

In the end we had one happy small mister Five Year Old. *faints* ... So I think we did pretty good!

The rest of the kids left with a little loot bag/ party favor I put together the morning of the party. Michael's had 2 cups for 75 cents - I filled each with a big balloon on an elastic, mini bubbles, glow bracelets and Super Mario gummy snacks and the loot bag staple: stickers. I think they looked great on the kids table!

Thanks for looking today!
