Birthday parties are what you do when you become a parent. Who knew? It can be daunting with so many details, so much money. For the first few years I had always felt obligated to reserve a “place” to go for my kids birthday parties. These last 2 years, though, have changed my mind and scope. I decided to start doing backyard birthday parties. Nothing beats them, I promise. Homemade games and activities with a relaxed environment, you don’t have to leave at a certain time and when the party is over – you’re already home!
My nephews birthday was the most recent in our family and my sister approved his request for a Super Mario Birthday party. She headed to Pinterest, of course, and was thoroughly inspired.
Mario and Luigi mustache provided.
Cloud Balloons, Mystery Boxes hanging – one for each guest which they soon found out had each birthday guests name on them! Each Mystery Box was a gift bag.
Homemade Pinterest inspired Super Mario Brothers cupcakes.
The children loved getting to make their own personal pizza, rolling the dough and all!
Each guest took home a Guess box with a Mario Brothers Water Bottle and a Cupcake.
