Mario Themed Birthday Party

My grandson turns four next week.  He is totally obsessed with Mario and has been role playing that he is Mario for the past 5 months.  Even when people ask him his name he will tell them Mario. My husband is Luigi and his mother is the princess. Me?  I am just Grammy. I have been busy the last few days preparing for his Birthday party. Of course it is gonna be Mario themed. There isn't a whole lot out there, so I had to get creative and come up with some creative ideas. It is gonna be a good day and I will update you all when the party is over.
Picked up cheap bubbles at the Dollar Tree and adhered Mario themed papers to them.

The last box of these fruit snacks on the shelf...

Large lollipops from the dollar store...I just added the themed papers.

Chomp Chomp, made from a black balloon...this will be part of the decorations...

Instead of party visors...

I wanted a pinata...they didn't have any I liked, not to mention they are expensive, so for about 3 dollars and a little of time I made my own.

Treat bags...
