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:
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
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!
