For a year or so while we were under construction, the room that became our kitchen gave us the perfect place to throw parties. Some might have thought I was a bit crazy, but I just couldn't stand the bare subfloor so one day I painted it. I guess I have gotten really good at making something out of just about anything.
So when Amber wanted to have a Super Mario Party for Anthony, I jumped right in. I ordered plain red and green ball caps, cut out white circle of felt and added a cut out letter to each circle; green for Luigi and red for Mario. We used them on the table when we set up. Along with a fake mustache and some gold coins and gold stars around the place settings.
The centerpiece for the kids table was a 3 tiered dessert stand that Amber filled with 1-up mushroom cupcakes and a Mario star cake for the very top tier.
I turned my dining room buffet into a Mario Candy Shop with the help of a Dollar Tree tablecloth. We found some candies similar to the candy in the Super Mario Party game. It was our very first candy buffet.
The fake mustaches I picked up from the party store were adorable on the kids when paired with their Mario or Luigi hat.
The boys had a blast playing Super Mario Party on the Wii.
Then it was time to sing Happy Birthday and have him blow out his 7 candles.
After cake the birthday boy sat down to open gifts. I made a banner and used my Dollar Store tablecloths to make a special chair for the birthday boy.
The guests all had a great time and filled their goodie bags with candy and took their hats home as favors.
