First though, thought I'd share with you some images of the Super Mario party that I styled for my friend Vicky. Her son is Mario mad and as I only had daughters who are now far too old for all that, I really didn't know anything about Mario and his pals, so I had a fair amount of googling and research to do.
What we eventually came up with was black and white chequerboard tablecloths, themed drinks labels and lots of red lunchboxes. At the end of the party everyone went home with a Mario toy, a piece of fabulous Mario chocolate cake from www.nikkinashcakes.co.uk and some sweets all packed into some Sweet Shop stripey bags sealed with a special "Thanks for coming to Matthew's Party" stickers. I think it all looked great and if the noise was anything to go by, then the children all had a great time!
And of course what else does a 6 year old boy do when he's finished all the food in his red lunchbox? Put it on his head obviously!
