1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Super Mario Brothers Party on: May 31, 2010 04:55:27 AM
Thank you all so much! My apartment is still a wreck and has looked like Hobby Lobby threw up in it for several weeks.

Wow!  It all looks so great, how long did you have to go without sleep to pull this off?!
I started about two weeks before the party and made two or three things every night. I procrastinated though, and left a bunch for the night before. That night, I lost sleep!

All of that is beyond amazing - I can't even pick a favorite part.  I want to play the egg toss game!  I might just have to plan this kind of party for my young-at-heart older brother lol!!  Thanks for the inspiration - so clever!
You are so welcome! I posted these photos on my fb page and several of my friends wanted me to make a Mario Party for them. I say go for it.

Also, you may want to take the beginners wilton cake decorating class if you live near a michaels. It's like $40 (plus I think a $20 kit that you get to keep all the supplies) but it was amazing. I learned to make my own icing, which is all the difference between professional looking and not. Your design looks great, but that might be the extra touch you need. (Or google the info, that would probably work too lol)
This is a great idea! I really appreciate the tip. There is a Michael's in the next town over, so I'll look it up. Yeah those Betty Crocker Icings in a tube that you buy at the grocery does not do what you want it to do.

I wish you were planning my party!  Cheesy  How did you get the confetti in the eggs?

My son's fourth birthday party (last week) was awesome. Even the parents had a great time. I made all the games and a lot of the party favors. Hope you guys like it as much as my son and his friends did!

Mushroom Invitations


Yoshi Eggs! Real eggs filled with confetti for the Yoshi's Egg Toss game. Got this idea from a video on YouTube.

Bowser after the eggs were thrown in his face!

Yours Truly leading the kids in a game of "Shy Guy Says" - like Simon says, but with red and white paper plates decorated like shy guys. Each kid got one and had to follow the rules, but when Shy Guy doesn't say to move and you move then you're out.

Some of us playing the game.

You can see in this picture the Mario visors that I made out of $1 visors. I also made Luigi and Princess Peach for the girls. The girl in the yoshi shirt is wearing a mustache above her lips. That mustache was sticky foam paper that was stuck to blo-pops so they looked like Mario suckers. (another idea from you tube.)

Bomb-omb! We used it to play hot potato. I turned my back while the kids passed the bomb and when I yelled "BOMB-OMB!" whoever was holding it pretended to blow up. They then got to yell Bomb-omb. The winner got the Bomb-omb. Made from a decorative ball that I bought at Wal-Mart on clearance. I sanded it and re-painted it.

Pirahna Plant Table Decoration

Boo Balloon Pop - Toy coins inside the balloons just like the game!

Question Block plushie toss:

Assault Turnips for the girls to throw: (Each girl got to take one home)

Fireballs for the boys to throw: (Each boy got to take one home)

Party Bags (hand drawn)

Crayons with sticker paper over the boxes and hand drawn images on both sides. I left them blank for the kids to color. (The kids colored their own party bags while they waited for the other kids to arrive.)

Pin the Mustache on Mario! (He looks so weird without one!)

I never claimed to be a cake decorator! I ordered a blank cake from the bakery and attempted to personalize it myself. Oh well, my son's 4, he doesn't care for now. Smiley And the other kids were too young to mind. I didn't know black gel icing was so runny...

I used an old metal lunch box tin and decorated it with a Death Note theme for my daughter. The drawings of L and Light are not my own originals. I used some pictures from the interwebs as reference, but they are hand drawn and not traced. She really liked it.

I think it's totally profound, and you should be proud of your work. Especially, since it's your OWN. I love to see work that's inspired by literature.

I'm actually digging the eyebrows.

These look super professional!

Do you go somewhere special to make notecards or do you make them yourself?

The teacup is my fave, but the top one would be a great gift for someone who likes Cacti. It looks like a cactus to me.

My daughter would love this! Her birthday is coming up soon and this would be perfect for her! She's completely in love with Jack Sparrow.

Did you take a shoe box and paint it to look like a box? I had to look twice since it looks like an actual treasure box!
