Nora's Super Mario Party

All in all we had about 3 birthday parties for this little lady's first birthday.  Thinking about it now it seems like a teeny bit much but you only get one first birthday right? We had a birthday party at my parents and then the in-laws and then wanted to do a small one with just some close friends and then I could go a little over the top with theme and have fun hosting.  We ended up picking Super Mario theme which both of us played when we were kids and of course thought it was the perfect theme for a first birthday. 
I wanted to DIY the party as much as possible like with the  home made cupcakes, mario style containers, a castle, signage, star cupcake toppers.  I ended up having a whole list of ideas  I am no party planner but I had a lot of fun making all of the party details and hoped my crafts didn't look like a 3 year old made them.
We had a mustachio station that the baby and kids went crazy over.  They used the mustaches for lots of mustaches and uni-brows.  Nora's mustache lasted all of 5 seconds.
Nora ate her cupcake and loved every bit of it.  It was her first time tasting chocolate and gobbled it up and then smeared it all over her dress. :)
By the end of the afternoon she had no dress and was scooting around as fast as she could with some balloons.  Yep it was that kind of awesome party.

What a perfect theme! I was a huge Super Mario fan growing up, and I'd love to make my future baby Princess Toadstool for a day! The decorations are spot on. xo

I love the moustache on Nora, seems like such a wonderful way to celebrate her first birthday, glad to hear and see that she had such a brilliant time! Super Mario theme is a theme idea that comes from daddy I reckon.

This looks like so much fun. Heck, I'd love a Super Mario party at my age! She looks darling, and definitely looks like she had a blast as well :)
