Ideas, Activities, Décor, Games, and Supplies!

All you need for your Mario Bros themed party is here! Ideas! Favors! Cake Ideas! Things to do! Games! More!

Everyone loves the Mario Bros, which makes this the perfect theme for birthdays and family events! Boys, girls, teens and adults alike grew up with Luigi, Peach, Toad, Bowser, and the gang.

Prepackaged party supplies currently are available in Super Mario and Mario Kart Wii themes. Of course, you can mix those up or put things together any way you like! How about a Yoshi birthday party? A Bob-omb party? Anything goes and will be loads of fun.

Decoration Color Suggestions

  • Mario wears red, blue and white
  • Shells are green, red or blue
  • Bob-ombs are black and yellow
  • Mushrooms are green or red
  • Grass is green, sky is blue
  • Stars are yellow
  • Yoshis come in lots of colors: green, pink, black, red and blue

Any or all of these bright colors will be great for streamers, balloons, and more!

Things to Do at a Mario Party

How about Some Star Games? - Use a plush or yellow paper star

  • Hot Star! (like Hot Potato)
  • Find the hidden star (hidden in the house or yard)
  • Star keep-away (see above)
  • Collect the most paper stars (like an Easter egg hunt)

Fun Party Games & Activities


Get a Frisbee for each guest and draw or attach a golden star to one of them. Leave the rest blank. Start a game of "keep away." The person holding the star Frisbee when the game is done (maybe 8 minutes or so, or the length of a Mario-themed song) wins the game.


Have a playoff on Mario Kart and see who can drive a game track the fastest.


Make Star or Toad shaped name tags. On the back, make a small mark on one star. The guest with the marked star wins the game (announced during the party).


Play musical chairs with related video game music.

What game can we think up for MUSTACHES? - Lol - the hit of the event!

Let's see --

  • Pin the mustache on the face?
  • Who can get the least frosting in his or her mustache?
  • Best-looking "beauty" contest?
  • Who can make it through the whole party wearing his or hers?
  • Decorate a balloon to look like Mario contest?

and/or greet each guest at the door with one!
