Plumbers Always Get the Girl

We are in full mustache mode. MARIO mustaches, that is.

To a stay at home mom, birthday parties are like the Final Exam. The Masters' Thesis. The Medical Residency. The Dissertation.

In five days, my Ian will be five years old. In two days, we will have a grand Super Mario and Luigi party in this house. Over thirty people will pack inside for two whirlwind hours.

These pretties will be there:

So will these. Any guesses as to what this handmade party favor might be?

Rest assured, wax mustaches and lips will be on hand. Here, you see my two trying them out. Quality control testing is a must when party plans are implemented, you know.

Bee sting, anyone? Bless Lilly's heart, she simply could NOT smile without those lips falling out, no matter how many times grandma asked her.

I'm glad to see her putting those hot lips to good use in the second photo.

See you after my final. Think I'll get an A? At least a B+ for effort?


  1. Looks like SO much fun! My 8 year old would LOVE it!

    My guess is that you made Mario and Luigi hats or bags. Can't wait to see more pictures!

    Have so much fun.

    You get an A++++++++ in my book!

  2. Those photos made me giggle. THANKS. I needed that!

  3. I'm guessing Mario and Luigi Super Hero capes...I know, they aren't superheroes, but I also know that Ian LOVES capes...I've seen him at the grocery store in them! I'm already giving you an A+ on the birthday party. I love, love, love the lips and mustache!
    You're so fun!!!

  4. ooooooh! I hope its a smashing success. Can't wait to see the post party pictures.

  5. I can't wait to see the results! My boys love Mario Brothers...I made them Mario, Luigi & Yoshi costumes for Halloween a couple of years ago.

  6. total A+. love it! looking forward to the party pics :)

  7. the only thing missing will be me. boooo.

    Not that I was invited.... but I can't wait to see the pictures.

    Your prep work is grand! I'm sure it will be fun.

    Caris turns 5 in less than a month and we are hosting a "bike" party. Kids will decorate their an obstacle course... and more.
    Should be fun!

  8. HATS!!! Dum, dum dum, da dum da dum... makes me want to play Mario... that is one addicting game!!!

  9. Oooooh, I may have to steal your idea for my son's 7th bday in June. He is a big Mario Bros. fan. Can't wait to see how it turns out!!
