I’m not sure what seems more impossible to believe: that these photos were taken two whole months ago, or that I haven’t shared them yet! For Jonah’s fifth birthday, we had a Super Mario themed Party. We invited family and friends as well as a few of his preschool friends.
I made sugar cookies shaped like Power-ups: Mushrooms, Invincibility Stars and Fire Flowers. Believe it or not, these were all made with two circle and one star shaped cookie cutters!
The Stars were my favorite. So cute!
My Dad printed Custom Chocolate Suckers for the party, using images we found on the Paper Mario Wiki.
We served a few assorted snacks, including the Toadstool Salad Appetizers I made for my own birthday party a while back.
My mom made this awesome cake, decorated with Mario Figurines that we ordered online.
After cake and ice cream, we took all of the kids outside to knock down a Chain Chomp Piñata that we made from a round balloon.
Tod created a Mario-themed “Adventure Maze” with sidewalk chalk for the kids to run through.
We decorated the house with balloons and streamers, and stuck up paper print-outs from images found online. Otherwise, the décor was pretty simple.
We also printed out coloring pages and set up an area with crayons.
Goodie bags were actually made from little Kraft Jewelry Gift boxes that were transformed into Question Mark Blocks. We gave the kids suckers and Atomic Fireballs, Super Mario fruit snacks and stick-on moustaches.
…but of course none of the kids would wear the moustaches, so mostly the adults wore them around.
Jonah had a Super Happy 5th Birthday and everyone had a great time.
