Tatum's Mario Party

I started a little tradition this year for Tatum's Birthday. While Tatum slept the night before his birthday I crept into his room and hung some balloons above his bed. I hung 1 balloon for every year he has been in our lives and inside each balloon was a dollar bill.

He woke up and thought it was so cool! Don't mind the severe bed head :)

For breakfast Eric and his Mom took Tatum to McDonalds. Trey slept in until 10:00 so I stayed home with him!! When he got back a package came from my parents.

These things are right up Tatum's ally...he was so excited!

That evening of  we threw Tatum a HUGE party. He decided to go with a mario theme and it turned out so cute! I had so much fun putting it all together and although it was a bit chaotic I was pretty happy with the outcome.

The Dessert Table

I made Boo-Balloons to hang above the table and in the hallway.

Pin the Mustache on Mario

Eric made this sweet mask seconds before the game started...I forgot about that part ;)

We had a lot of fun with the sticky mustaches... Hilarious!!

Mario Bingo

Poor Trey wasn't feeling good, he got as many popsicles as he wanted. Good thing for Grandparents who saved the day and took care of poor baby Trey!

Singing happy birthday

We then did the pinata and presents. Tatum got overloaded with gifts...spoiled rotten :) 

Here is a pic of the whole gang. If you count them all you will see we had 15 kids in you know why I said it was CHAOTIC!!  This picture was hilarious because right after I took the picture they all lowered their mustaches and had melted chocolate under their noses. We had to clean everyone's face!

The rest of the night was spent snuggling our new 5 year old!!

So don't hate me but I might just completely copy your party and do it for Logan this summer. He loves Mario and you did such a cute job on the party. Would you hate me??? Where did you find all that stuff for it...hates, totes, bingo cards, poster???

You did an amazing job! I totally just pinned this. If you don't mind, I may have to copy your idea if I throw Ryan a party this year. You're so creative!
