Everything you need to throw a super fun Super Mario party- get all the easy and budget-friendly ideas here!
I’m finally sitting down to write this post…almost two years since we threw our daughter a SUPER fun Super Mario party. Better late than never, right? I’ve got to do something productive while the song “Peaches” lives rent-free in my head.
A Super Mario party theme is great because it is so happy and colorful, both boys and girls love it, it hits the nostalgia button pretty hard, and it has just endless possibilities for all the things you want to do for your party.
I’ve got ideas for decorations, games, food, costumes, and a few gift recommendations! (Many of these ideas are inspired by the **Disclaimer: In this post, we recommend awesome products from Amazon, and we earn a small commission based on any purchases. We appreciate the support so much!
Super Mario Birthday Party Ideas
Ok, before I get into decorations, I have to say, a Cricut machine will be your best friend if you like to make a lot of your own decorations. I have a Like these clouds! I adore the happy little clouds from the Mario game, so I definitely wanted to include them in the party decor. I just used white posterboard and black paint for those.
And my kids thought Magikoopa was just hilarious, so we had to have Magikoopa flying around in the clouds. I just printed that little guy out and stuck him up there.
I put some festive streamers coming out of the clouds, including a few racing stripe patterned ones in a nod to Mario Kart.
For the hallway, we drew a picture of Princess Peach looking out of a window, and I let the birthday girl color it. I’m not sure why she chose gray gloves for Peach, but I just had to let it go.
I had a big vision for a haunted room and game, but that didn’t turn out. We still had fun drawing King Boo’s face on white balloons and hanging those. They got pretty tangled though by the time I got a picture. I added haunted mansion doors in the back of the room.
Total flop, but it still got a chuckle out of our party guests.
I used my Cricut and cardstock to make these Piranha Plant decorations for our back windows. The pots are made from green posterboard. Looking back now, I think little cutouts of a Mario level under the pots would have been a cute touch. You know, how you go down a pipe and there are coins and stuff?
