Icee's 9th Birthday party last saturday, July 16 was a blast!!!!... Our parent's garage were filled with classroom full of kids from Icee's class. Thankfully the kid's parents allowed their children to come and celebrate with us, we picked them up at school around 2 pm and brought them back 5:30 pm at the same place.
Given the conditions he set for the party, I'd say it was a success, Moreover because I made him one Super happy celebrant, everybody had fun and won't stop talking about the great party we throw for my nephew Icee. :)
The invite, thank you stickers and tarpaulin:
The invites were given 3 days before the party, to his classmates. I had fun making the layouts for both the invite and tarp. For a week, Mario and the cast gave me constant nightmares... lol
Candy Buffet and favor buffet
These are mostly DIYs, (party hats, cupcake toppers, star nametags, favor boxes and layouts for the thank you stickers) due to lack of Super Mario party supplies in our place or maybe due to lack of time, to look for supplies. What a girl to do? be resourceful and be creative. :)
50 Favor Boxes (here) were filled with candies and goodies.
Nope I didn't bake the cupcakes, baking and cooking, that I still need to learn. But I made the cupcake toppers though, heheheh :)
The Games/ Activities
I printed out Mario Character, poster size for the "pin the mustache" and Yoshi for the egghunt. I forgot to take photos of the plastic eggs before we hid it for the kids to find, but it was a hit and now Icee wants to play egghunt this weekend.
