A Mario Brothers Birthday Party

My good friend, Lily J (founder of the blog, I Love the Way She Blogs) recently threw a Mario Brothers party for her son's 6th birthday. I LOVED how it turned out and asked her if she would be willing to let me post about it. She was kind enough to send me pictures and detailed information about how she came up with the ideas, and even included some links. Here are the pictures and details in her words.


A few days before E's birthday I overheard him tell his friends that he was probably going to have another Spider-man party. Although he is only turning 6 he said, "It will be like my 10th Spider-man party!" I laughed out loud and secretly planned a Mario themed party for him instead. One Pretty Thing proved to be a very useful site when I searched "Mario".

The Yoshi loot bag template can be found here. I let the kids assemble their own Yoshi bag as one of our party activities.


My cupcakes were supposed to look like Toad, but the kids thought they looked more like Yoshi Eggs.


When I read about This party I was inspired to use lots of balloons to make the party bright. The paper stars were easy to make out of poster board and I hung them throughout the house.


I got my idea for Yoshi Eggs from here. After boiling the eggs I drew spots on with permanent markers. We used the eggs to play Egg Toss in the yard. I used a few bags of Rolos to represent "star coins". I pretended to read a note from Toad asking the children to find as many star coins as they could to help save Princess Peach. Then they went on a mad dash to collect the coins in their Yoshi bags.

E was very surprised by the theme and had a great time. Now if only there was a way to help the new 6 year-old avoid disappointment when the party ends and everyone goes home :)

Thanks for sharing the great party ideas, Lily J!! If you have never checked out, I Love the Way She Blogs then you should. It has all kinds of cool links and tutorials to help you customize your blog.
