The 5th birthday party. It took some creativity. The little man requested a Luigi (from Super Mario Bros) birthday party. We found a great, plastic figurine at Barnes and Noble and knew it would be the perfect cake, or in this case cupcake, topper. And everything went from there.
The cupcake tower I picked up at our local party store. I put it together inside out and upside down, so the colors worked with our theme. If I really wanted to get crazy, I could have covered it with paper. :) Its a Wilton product.
The mushrooms were from Bed, Bath & Beyond (weird, I know). They were filled with candy. We emptied the candy out and had cute decorations.
I made the cupcake toppers with Spellbinders die templates, Circles and Stars 5. I glued the pieces to toothpicks. And they are different sizes.
The little man found these self-adhesive moustaches at the party store. They turned out to be a blast! (creative boy :)) I made a moustache-on-a-stick for all the boys. The photos are hilarious. And to add to the theme, I picked up a couple of $1 white hats at Michael’s. Tulip Brands makes a fabric spray paint, which colored the hats pretty well, in a short amount of time. I die cut a circle from cardstock and added a green Thicker to complete the Luigi look.
(Wish you could hear him say moustache. It sounds like moose-taash. So sweet.)
And instead of pin the tail on the donkey, we played pin the moustache on Luigi. It worked perfectly with the sticky-backed moustaches!!
I still cannot believe that my baby boy is 5 years old. He is growing up and changing so quickly. Its bittersweet, but I am so very proud of him! He is sweet, smart, kind, thoughtful, helpful, and has a wonderful sense of humor. God has blessed us with an amazing boy!
Have a wonderful weekend! thanks for stopping by!!
