A Super Duper Mario Birthday Party


This past weekend my husband and I traveled to Massachusetts for our friends' children's birthday party.  When we arrived, we were greeted with a house transformed into a video game - Super Mario Brothers style!!! I'm not so sure if it was the kids' idea or the parents' idea haha but it was still awesome!  With handmade question mark goodie bags filled with chocolate gold coins and mushroom tins filled with candy, stuffed Koopa Troopa turtle shell toys, hand crafted question mark pinata, homemade mushroom cupcakes and candy stars, helium balloons transformed into different characters in the game, a castle wall with a flag, and the pièce de résistance was having all three kids dressed up as Mario, Luigi, and Princess Toadstool!!! HELLO?!  What an awesome party it was.  The children who attended enjoyed the theme, and the adults were so impressed with the different details reminiscent of the childhood (and current) game.  Various songs were also downloaded as background so that everyone who attended the party can sing it in their sleep too.  Well done Del and Ping!  Bravo!  My friends and I always thought that they were craftiest couple in the group!
Remember this?
