Some parents got together to throw an end of the school year party for our graduating 6th graders. Many students had home-schooled this year due to covid or had only been back in school part time for a few weeks. We wanted to find a way to celebrate them all together! We hosted an outdoor movie night with yard games like giant jenga, checkers, corn hole, basketball, and 9 square. We had pizza for dinner and a concession table for movie time! It was so much fun for everyone to just be kids and enjoy their time together after so long apart.

Our set up was an amazing 3 car driveway at a friend’s house. Each garage door served as our backdrop for 3 areas. A photo prop backdrop, the movie screen, and our concessions table. We put tables in the driveway for kids to eat at then moved them for chairs for the movie once it got dark enough. It worked perfectly!

This theme is so much fun for almost any event! or just a family backyard movie night. Check out my twins’ party using the same printables HERE!

This is the final craft of the 3 Mario Party tutorials I have been sharing. This one is my favorite. These Mystery Boxes and Bricks make such a great impact in the party space and a pretty easy to make. I used them on my party table and on my mantle by the TV playing Mario. They would also be great stacked by the front door to greet guests. Even hang them on the wall! I hope you enjoy this tutorial and create some for your own party. Make sure to tag me on instagram in your party pics! @5MCreations

Today I am sharing craft number 2 in my Mario Party DIY Tutorials. The Princess Peach crown. This one is even simpler than the Mario and Luigi hats on my last post. You need 12x18in yellow craft foam (you can make 3 crowns from this), either jewels or glitter foam to cut out circles, a headband of your choice and hot glue. You can find the template I referenced HERE thanks to Oh My Glitzy! Follow the step by step instructions on the video to make your own crowns. Enjoy!

Do you have a video game lover in your house? I happen to have 3! My youngest asked for a Mario inspired birthday party so I looked to Pinterest for some fun ideas. I created this Mario inspired FREE printable party decor, found some awesome game and craft ideas and I cannot wait to share it with you. Watch for another post with video tutorials on a few items. See the bottom of the post for links to all of the products I used.

The backdrop was the focal point of the party table. The cloud paper was a photo backdrop I got on clearance at Joann Fabric. I added some green butcher paper hills and the Mario inspired printable happy birthday banner.

Each guest received a favor box filled with goodies. They included Mario fruit snacks, a pencil. mustaches, Mario stickers and gold coins.

Each box had a printable “Thanks for Playing” favor tag.

Power Up printable treat bag toppers were the perfect addition for the gold coins.

Printable Mario inspired cupcake toppers were added to store bought cupcakes for a sweet treat.

I cut out little mushrooms to add to the front of solid color snack cups I got at the dollar store. An easy way to dress up our popcorn snack.

Water bottle wraps are always a go to for me. I love how easy it is to add the theme to something so basic. The kids love drinking out of them.

 

I saw several different Piranha plant ideas on pinterest but ended up making my own paper fans out of red cardstock and a tube with an oatmeal canister. I will add more details in my next post.

I designed these printable 3D brick and mystery boxes to stack on my party table. They were so much fun! (TUTORIAL HERE)

Party guests were given a hat and mustache when they arrived. (TUTORIAL HERE & HERE)

For party games we did a Fire and Ice Ball throwing contest. Green bowls from the dollar store were our green tubes. The kids tossed bean bags into the tubes to earn points.

We played pin the mustache on Mario. (Printable file for free at the end of the post)

Stomp the Goomba. I cut paper feet out of cardstock, punched a hole at the back and pulled the knot of the balloon through to make them stand up. I was originally going to add faces to them, but never got it done. Honestly the kids didn’t care. Inside each balloon I put a chocolate gold coin. They they defeated (popped) the Goomba and got a gold coin. Each kid got to stomp 3 Goombas. This was the kid’s favorite game.

Next we knocked over cups with our Yoshi Tongues (party blower). First to knock over every cup won.

We had Mario coloring sheets I printed from free. The kids did this while we were waiting for everyone to arrive. It was a nice activity while we waited.

This last craft I found on Fab Everyday. The kids made piranha plant tubes by coloring a printable piranha plant and gluing it to a craft stick. We cut a slit in the bottom of the cup for the stick to slide up and down. They LOVED this activity. Thanks Fab Everyday for the idea. Check out her post for more Mario Party Ideas.

We played a Mario soundtrack I found on youtube during the party. It was perfect! It also added a fun graphic to the tv. My mantle was decorated with more of the mystery and brick boxes, piranha plant and a mini banner made with printable characters. I added a circle banner I had left from our LEGO inspired party that was the exact same colors.

I hope you enjoyed some of our Mario Inspired party tips. The kids had a blast and took home lots of fun Mario goodies. You can find the FREE Mario inspired printable decor in my shop. It includes everything shown below plus a few extras. If you are wondering where I got most of the non printable items shown above there is a party supply list is below!

I had so much fun designing this printable superhero party decor for my friend’s daughter. It is so bright and vibrant. Perfect for any girl who loves superheroes! She did such an amazing job creating a social distanced party space. This post includes printables sold in my shop as well as some items from a FREE download. See the bottom of the post for more details.

The party table was layered with all kinds of superhero goodness. This awesome cupcake stand was the perfect addition for any superhero party. It was such a fun backdrop for the superhero cupcake toppers. 

My printable package includes 4 versions of superhero word cupcake toppers. A great way to dress up any party treat.

The party mom created these AMAZING name letters inspired by some of her daughter’s favorite superheroes. These were created using paper mache letters from the craft store, craft paint, and some printable images I am providing FREE below. Create your own!

Since blowing a candle out is not very covid friendly, the mom had this adorable mini cake just for the birthday girl and cupcakes for guests. She created a cake topper using a printable POW word bubble on a stick.

This printable Happy Birthday girl superhero banner was the perfect way to add color to the front of the table and tie everything together. Printable banners are so easy to use. Just print, cut, and string the letters together. Hang anywhere!

More superhero party decor was found at Oriental Trading including these balloons, plates and napkins. The amazing thing was these were purchased after my printable package was designed. They were perfect! You would have thought they were made to go together.

This party set up was a little different than most due to covid. The mom set up individual tables for each of her guest family groups spread out 6ft apart. It was a great way to celebrate with some distance. She put a centerpiece, favor boxes, and water bottles at each table.

Superhero water bottle labels were such an easy way to dress up a simple item for your guests. Just cut, wrap, and secure with adhesive.

Each party box included superhero sunglasses, a rubber duck and lollipop.

This was such an amazing party space! I hope you were inspired to create your own superhero party.

Happy birthday to this superhero unicorn loving girl!

I know I say this a lot but my daughter’s 50’s Party theme (click to see the original party) was the most FAVORITE party I have thrown. There were so many fun details. It has quickly become one of my most popular sellers. I am sharing some customer photos below from several different parties for both boys and girls. I have sold this party many times for retirement or 50 and 60 year old birthday parties also. There is not just one way to use my printable files. This is such a great example of this. You can find the printable package HERE! Enjoy!

I have been going back through party photos to find old events I have never shared. This Lego inspired party is one I threw for my twins several years ago. It was so much fun! Check out all the fun details including FREE printable decor below.

I added a few pieces to my mantle to create a cute lego display. A polka dot garland in the party colors, a couple of lego storage pieces (the mini fig head and large green brick, and a fun printable centerpiece. I made a centerpiece holder out of lego bricks.

I set up my main dining room for treats and lego building. 

This fun printable banner has lego patterns on the paper and cute mini fig heads.

Each guest got a mini lego set to build during the party. We watched the LEGO movie while building.

Printable cupcake toppers dressed up homeade cupcakes.

I made these cute mini fig marshmallow pops with large and mini marshmallows and yellow candy melts.

This lego pinata was a cinch to make. A rectangle box and solo cups were wrapped in red crepe paper. I just cut the fringe before wrapping. I left a hole in the top and filled with candy.

Each guest had a bag to collect their pinata candy!

I created these fun treat bag with these lego printable treat bag toppers and brick candy from the bulk candy section.

It was such a fun party building with my boys!
