Once you pick the date, and before you set the time, check on the entertainment you want to have at your party. There is nothing worse than making a million phone calls and rescheduling your party because you can’t find the entertainment to line up with the time of your party.
Whether you are looking for Face Painting, Glitter Tattoos, Balloon Twisting or Canvas Paint Parties drop us a quick note to let us know the time you are thinking, and we can start to work with you to design your entertainment. We are now booking approximately 2 months in advance.
Start by creating invitations that are Super Mario Brothers-themed. You can find printable templates like the ones we found on Etsy. Make sure to include all the relevant details, like the date, time, location, and RSVP information. https://www.etsy.com/search?q=birthday%20invitations%20mario&ref=search_bar
When it comes to decorations, you'll want to create a world that feels like it came straight out of the game. Consider using bright primary colors like red, blue, and yellow. Use cardboard boxes to create a castle, mushroom, and question mark blocks. You can also use balloons, streamers, and tablecloths that match the color scheme.
Cutouts of Mario and Luigi can also be used to add more personality to the decorations. We found some great stuff online at Oriental trading. https://www.orientaltrading.com/super-mario-brothers-party-supplies-a2-13736193.fltr?categoryId=90000+2243
What's a party without delicious food? For a Super Mario Brothers party, consider serving up classic video game snacks, such as pizza, burgers, and fries. You can also have fun with the theme and make "Power-Up Punch" or "Princess Peach's Pink Lemonade." If you want to get creative, you can make cupcakes or a cake that looks like a Super Mario Bros. level.

No party is complete without activities. Here are some ideas
for Super MarioBrothers-themed activities:
1. Pin the Mustache on Mario - this game is similar to Pin the Tail on the Donkey. You can create a poster of Mario without his mustache, and then have children try to pin the mustache in the correct spot while blindfolded.
2. Super Mario Brothers scavenger hunt - create a scavenger hunt with items from the game, like mushrooms, stars, and coins.
3. DIY Mario crafts - have kids create their own Mario-themed crafts, like making a Mario hat or a Luigi mustache.
4. Super Mario Brothers obstacle course - set up an obstacle course that requires kids to jump over "lava pits," dodge "enemies," and collect "coins" before reaching the end.
