Last week, my youngest son, William, turned 6 years old! I can’t believe how quickly time has flown by. I feel like it was not long ago that he was a bouncing little baby. Now he is a young gentleman, and I am so proud of the person he is becoming. To celebrate his 6th year, we threw him a birthday bash themed around his favorite characters, The Mario Brothers. We invited friends from school and family to join him on his special day. They had a great time, but wow, having 50 children at your house at one time is exhausting! Here is a picture of the calm before the storm…
We set up a kid-friendly buffet of snacks, tables, themed decorations and if you can see, there is a big green truck parked in front. That is the “Extreme Truck”, and inside there are video games for the kids to play with! It was pretty cool and a big hit amongst the party-goers. Here is a picture of our full courtyard:
My husband Ben and I wanted to make William feel very special on his big day. So, we really ran with the Mario Brothers theme. Here is his birthday cake and cupcakes- chocolate delights decked out with Mario and Luigi toy characters, and his cake reads “Super William!” He was so thrilled and excited to see his favorite characters covering his cake.
We also prepared little treat boxes to send home with each guest, and we personalized them with a picture of William’s face, dressed up as Yoshi (Mario’s pet dinosaur), on the front! So fun:
In the backyard, we had a bounce house set up for the kids to hop around to their hearts’ content- a great way for them to get some of their sugar rush out from those chocolate cupcakes Here’s William on the left climbing and sliding with his friends.
The day after the party, we had so much leftover food! I hate to see food go to waste, so I made 9 delicious quiches from the leftover meats and cheeses. I will freeze some of these wholesome homemade dishes to pull out later for guests.
The party was a huge success and William had a fantastic time with his friends. It is so wonderful and fulfilling being able to see him grow up.
