Super Mario Bros Birthday

It's A Super Mario Bros Party for a Super 7 yr old!!
Costume courtesy of Grammy and Grampy!
Piranha Plants filled with atomic fire balls added a nice Super Mario touch to the dessert island
Super Cute Mario and Luigi "7" Tee was found on Etsy at http://www.etsy.com/shop/madecutejust4u


Mario and Luigi Chocolate Mustaches...the kids loved these!! I found a mold on Amazon for just a few bucks and filled them with Wilton dark chocolate.  Added a ribbon for an extra touch.
I visited the local Home Depot for "drains"..spray painted them green for a nice "tube" touch

Mario Cookies...these were purchased on Etsy from http://www.etsy.com/shop/TiffanysSweetSpot?ref=seller_info What a delight to work with this seller.  She even honored our peanut allergy and made sure these were safe for us!!
These adorable fondant cupcake toppers were found on Etsy as well, over at FancyFondants Such cute details to finish off my yummy vanilla bean cupcake
The cake was AMAZING!!  It tasted as delicious as it was adorable.  The cake was so moist and airy with a hint of strawberry flavored filling. So many Super details.  It was made by a local cake artist Kristina McKay. Check her out here http://krissyscakecreations.com/ She did an awesome job!!
Super Mario
All paper printables, birthday banner and invites were found at http://www.etsy.com/shop/PrintSparkle
Mario Mustaches! We greeted each guest at the door with their very own mustache to get them in the Mario and Luigi Mood
These were found on Etsy as well at http://www.etsy.com/shop/FelixStreetStudio...gotta love Etsy for your crafty party needs
Mario bricks were simply made from recycled kool aid juice boxes, spray painted brown and black marker lines drawn on for the brick look, super easy and cheap!!

Lunch consisted of Mario Meatballs, Piranha Pizza, Toadstool "pasta" salad, Princess Peach Salad and Yoshi Chips and Dip
Luigi Lemonade to quench the gamers thirst

Games!!  The party goers enjoyed Pin the Mustache on Mario & Luigi, Baby Bowzer Bean Bag Toss, a coloring contest, and the Collectible Coin Toss.  Prizes included gold coins that the kids collected throughout the party to claim a Mario Prize at the end. 

Old tires painted with spray paint added a fun touch to the party games.  Baby Bowzer was designed by daddy and painted by none other than mommy.  Nice team work I must say!!  Thanks to Nana for making the star and flaming hot fireball bean bags for the games
Well there it is, Our Super Mario Party for Our Super 7 Year Old.  It was a super fun party!!  Games were a hit with the kids as well as all of the yummy sweet treats!
