If you want to pull off a perfect Super Mario party theme, don’t forget to create a cake where you can include the Super Mario Brothers and other characters like the colorful mushrooms. You can even add some piranha plants from the Mushroom Kingdom!

You may ask for help from bakeshops in creating this. Just give them your design inspiration and let them choose the colors and fonts that would fit your theme. 

2. Print Super Mario-Inspired Invitations

Don’t forget to give your party guests a Super Mario-themed invitation card! Just by looking at it, kids (and the young at heart) would definitely get hyped as you give them an idea of what to expect at the party. 

Aside from the venue, date, and time of the party, a fanatic kid would love to see the Super Mario Brothers or (a gigantic mushroom) on your invitations. This would make them more excited too!

3. Prepare A Welcome Banner

Other Super Mario birthday party ideas you can try include creating a party banner that you can hang at the venue’s entrance.

If you want it to be more realistic, bring your A-Game and use the actual fonts in the video game in creating your welcome banner. But, how many Super Mario games are there in total?

4. Use Super Mario Plates, Cups & Utensils

Our Super Mario party ideas will not be complete without recommending the use of plates, cups, and utensils related to the theme. Kids who will join the party will surely love your fun place settings because this will remind them of their favorite characters in the game.

There are party stores selling cups bearing images of the Super Mario Brothers, and some even have a cute piranha plant design [2]!

Themed foods are also one of the best ways to pull a Super Mario party theme. In serving the food, make sure to use the colors used in the game.

For the cupcakes, you can use a Super Mario Brothers cake topper (or maybe just Luigi, if that’s what your child prefers). Since many kids might attend the party, you can give away a loot bag filled with candy and other sweet treats. 

6. Dress Up As Super Mario Characters

If you want to give every kid at the party a fun memory to look back to, you can dress up like the Super Mario Brothers! Doing so will make the kids feel more excited about the party, especially when interacting with a familiar character.

Aside from wearing the color red or green, attach fake mustaches to complete your awesome Mario and Luigi get-up. Do not forget the iconic shoes and gloves!

Remember that birthdays only happen once a year, so consider these things and plan your party well. 

8. Use The Mystery Box as Chairs & Tables

The venue of the celebration is also essential in planning a themed party. Kids and other guests will definitely enjoy the setting if you fill it with balloons or decorations related to the well-known Super Mario game.
